YAMAHA Rhino 660 Auto. 4x4 Sport 2006 - Present

My 2006 Yamaha Rhino 660 Auto 4×4 comes with fully independent four-wheel suspension: Double-wishbones front and rear deliver 185.42 mm (7.3 inches) of wheel travel and 307.34 mm (12.1 inches) of ground clearance. Decent for easy trail rides, but with stock-width a-arms, it feels like it could tip on side hills, or run out of suspension going through the whoops or hitting a witches eye.

Yamaha engineers have taken the guts from their Grizzly 660 4x4 ATV and added Jeep-like bodywork with side-by-side bucket seats for two adults. The result looks like a cross between the Kawasaki Mule that professional gardeners use and some goofy new ride at Disney World.

Don't be fooled. The Rhino 660 is as serious as a 30-06 round, as much at home in the woods as Crocodile Dundee. It can go anywhere a regular 1-man ATV can go, while carrying two people plus 400 pounds in the cargo bed. It'll dust down a fire road at 40 mph, plow through a stream at 1 mph or clamber up a mountain too steep to hike.

If the military doesn't buy thousands of these things to patrol the Afghan mountains, we'll be surprised. Two $8499 Rhinos will carry as many soldiers as one $100,000 Humvee, but with far greater mobility and versatility. Imagine an infantry patrol equipped with a half-dozen of these things. They could go anywhere and do anything, with no more of a heat signature than a man on a bicycle.

Yamaha's Grizzly 660 ATV is only 82 in. long, 47.6 in. high and 45.3 in. wide. By comparison, the Rhino is quite a bit bigger all around: 113.5 in. long, 73 in. high and 54.5 in. wide. Half that height comes from the tubular roll cage. The Rhino's wheelbase is 2 ft. longer than that of the Grizzly. And at 1049 pounds, the Rhino weighs 450 pounds more than the Grizzly.

On the other hand, virtually all of the Rhino's mechanical components are shared with the Grizzly. It's powered by the same liquid-cooled 660cc SOHC 5-valve 4-stroke Single, driving through a V-belt automatic transmission. The front and rear suspensions are the same as the Grizzly's--independent upper and lower A-arms--as are the front disc brakes and driveshaft-mounted single rear disc. Even the AT25x8-12 front and AT25x10-12 rear tires and pushbutton 2wd/4wd/4wd differential lock are the same for both machines. Rhino ground clearance is 12.1 in., 0.3 in. more than that of the Grizzly.

What does all of this mean? Well, since it's only a few inches wider than the Grizzly, the Rhino can sneak up most narrow ATV or snowmobile trails. It also means that if you had to, you could squeeze a Rhino into the 8-ft. bed of a full-size pickup, but it would be a lot easier to carry it from trailhead to trailhead on a trailer.

Ready to go, including a 200-pound rider and 5 gal. of fuel, a Grizzly weighs 850 pounds. A Rhino carrying 8.5 gal. of fuel and two 200-pound men weighs over 1500 pounds. Obviously, since both are powered by the same engine and drivetrain, the Grizzly should handily outperform the Rhino under any conditions at any speed.

That's not the way it works. Driving a Rhino with a 100-pound passenger, we easily followed a professional rider on a Grizzly through a maze of trails in Kentucky's Turkey Bay off-road recreation area. Riding a Grizzly, we stuck to the bumper of a Rhino carrying a pair of Yamaha professionals. The Rhino is equal to the Grizzly. Period.

We know you don't believe this. Nobody does. But through some sort of engineering magic, Yamaha has built the first side-by-side vehicle that can compete with an ATV in serious off-road prowess. The coolest part is that while riding an ATV is, by definition, a solitary sport, the Rhino encourages you to bring a friend and share the good times.

Yamaha has created a whole new market segment. For the moment, the Rhino 660 is unique. That won't last, as the competition is sure to take note.
