Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., has launched a new Viking VI “Build Your Own” (BYO) site providing customers the opportunity to personalize and accessorize their vehicle online. Current and potential Viking VI customers can now see what their customized machine might look like via an interactive site at www.YamahaViking.com.
Yamaha currently has more than fifty accessories for the Viking VI, which is the only true six-person Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicle with full utility and off-road capabilities. The new 2015 Viking VI model was announced in June 2014 and production is now in full swing with vehicles being delivered to dealers across the country.
“The Viking VI is a incredibly versatile machine made for farmers, hunters and recreational enthusiasts,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and SxS group marketing manager. “Yamaha is helping customers personalize their vehicles with Genuine Yamaha Accessories that are developed in tandem with the vehicle to ensure the highest quality, durability and performance standards along with the best fit and finish.”
The versatility of both the Viking and Viking VI creates an ideal platform for personalization. Existing and future Viking or Viking VI customers can now virtually customize their SxS via the BYO tool on the Yamaha website to get an idea for what accessories best suits their needs. The Yamaha accessories division is supporting that customization, and the versatility of the Viking vehicles, by developing and sourcing a comprehensive catalogue including popular products like roofs, windshields, storage boxes and sound systems that can be ordered directly from and installed by Yamaha dealers.
