Yamaha Sends Out Warning to Rhino Owners About Dangers

For the first time since the Yamaha Rhino was introduced to the public, Yamaha has informed owners by mail that any type of sharp turn can provoke an unexpected tip-over or rollover. Owners and others are being warned not to deliberately stick out their leg in an attempt to prevent the vehicle from tipping over. While this may sound like common sense, the “warning” does little to prevent serious injuries to the driver or passenger. Tests performed by engineers not associated with Yamaha demonstrate that a driver’s leg will come out of the vehicle involuntarily because of the amount of force exerted on the leg by gravity during a tip-over or rollover.
