Yamaha Banshee Specs
The Yamaha Banshee 350 is an ATV that went out of production in 2006. The Banshee engine doesn't have an electric starter. The Yamaha Banshee doesn't have a reverse gear. It is remembered as much for what it didn't have as what it did because it was fun to ride. Future restoration projects and ATV riders collecting classics will ensure that at least a few Yamaha Banshee's survive for a very long time. If you see a Yamaha Banshee engine for sale give me a holler.
This article is being written to give a shout out to Banshee lovers everywhere. Just because your local Yamaha ATV dealer won't be trying to sell you a banshee anymore doesn't mean that you can't choose a used Banshee as your main ride.
As long as there remains a few Banshee riders out there you will always find places like the BansheeHQ.com forums to share your stories with and to get advice on where to find banshee parts, build ideas and everything else that was Yamaha Banshee born.
If you have any great Yamaha Banshee stories or fond memories of one you owned please leave a comment. ATVStyle will likely be featuring rider reviews in the future, we just might contact you about your Banshee 350 adventures sometime.
