Back in August, we visited Big Buck Farms in South Carolina to test drive the 2017 YXZ1000R SS side-by-side. It’s a tough job sometimes, but the work must be done. While we were there, we talked to Yamaha’s Product Developer Ryan Stiver to find out a little more about the new Sport Shift (SS) version of the YXZ. The SS shares the same guts as the manual model, which is mated to an advanced automatic clutch system, so drivers can shift Formula One style and keep their foot on the gas as they go through the gears.
