Yamaha made it very clear last year that the Viking would be the first of many models designed to carry them back into the Side x Side market. The new, six seat Viking VI is the second installment on that promise and it builds on the hard-working features of the original Viking, but with upgrades and features to make it even more capable for the entire work crew. Since Texas accounts for a large percentage of Side x Side sales, many of which are the multi-passenger “crew” type vehicles, Yamaha thought it would be fitting to preview their big Viking VI where it would be right at home.
