How Special

Right on target with ATVs, side-by-sides and Rugers

August 2012 Powersport News

By Steve Janes

Yamaha has introduced two new recreational vehicles in a unique way-with a bang. The Rhino 700 Special Edition and the Grizzly 700 Special Edition are as similar as they are different . and they both have highlight Yamaha's distinctive twist for outdoorsmen.

Tactical Black is the look for these two models based on the theme that has been popularized by the gun industry. To set the table for its model introduction, Yamaha invited journalists representing the ATV, hunting and firearms industries to participate in a "ride and shoot" at Gunsite-a world renown firearms training center that occupies 2000 acres about 25 miles north of Prescott, AZ.

For three days journalists received first-class training from Gunsite instructors on firearm safety and use, while incorporating the Rhino 700 SE side-by-side and Grizzly 700 SE ATV to access target ranges. Rugar Firearms provide two popular guns-the SR9c compact pistol and SR-556 AR carbine rifle-to each journalist and Hornady added boxes of ammunition.

Although more information will be made available in the next issue of Dirt Toys, we wanted to offer some of the highlights to this event through photos and captions.
