If you have about $ 16, 500 in your zagashnik, an off-road Yamaha-Rino 660 off-road vehicle will be a good help to your outdoor activities: either a quadricycle or a car without a roof. Emotionally - rather the first, technically … Judge for yourself.
The driver and passenger are located nearby, and not one after another, like on a motorcycle. Both have seat belts, head restraints, a steering wheel, a brake and gas pedal, an automatic transmission control joystick, and a parking brake. Perhaps this is still a car, only with an open cockpit, limited along the contour by metal arches - without a roof and a windshield.
Managing Rino is easy. The car readily obeys the steering wheel and follows the gas pedal well. The brake system is quite effective, and automatic transmission is actively helping. Easily removable seats are simple, but the size and shape provide an acceptable fit for people of average height. The suspension is energy-intensive and elastic, does not cause discomfort when traveling on bad roads. And on the other, in fact, “Rino” does not go.
He has no turn signals and no place for a license plate. The manufacturer does not hide that the equipment is exclusively off-road. Her element is the countryside or hunting grounds. However, who said that they are only resting here?
At the touch of a button, we connect the front axle, and with a light movement of the joystick a lowering stage (generally speaking, this concept is conditional for the variator, and there is no “bridge” as such). Now, Yamaha will not only confidently go off-road, but will be able to pull a trailer weighing 550 kg - more than its own weight! The reclining tailgate will facilitate the quick unloading of bulk goods (up to 180 kg). And if necessary, another button engages the center lock.
The transmission operation mode is displayed by an icon on the display panel next to the electronic speedometer. Here is the testimony of an on-board computer that measures the engine hours and informs about the power reserve. The engine overheating lamp is also located there. The actual level of gasoline can be estimated only during a stop by looking at a special viewing gap.
