2013 FX Nytro MTX 153
High Performance 4-stroke engine
The over-achieving High Performance engine is the heart of our lightweight, high performance and aggressive FX Nytro model family. It dominated its class at the American Snowmobiler Shoot-Out in New York for 3 years straight, claiming top speed and posting the best average ET over 4 runs down the ¼-mile track.
Advanced fuel injection
The High Performance engine uses Yamaha’s advanced fuel injection system to control fuel flow to the engine. Consumers will enjoy the engine’s spot-on performance and throttle response as a result of the advanced electronic fuel injection system.
Engine braking reduction system
The High Performance engine features the unique Engine Braking Reduction System. The system allows a small amount of air to pass through the fuel injection system when the throttle is released, giving riders a “coast” feeling.
Lightweight rear-exiting exhaust
The patented rear exit design serves many performance-enhancing functions on the FX Nytro MTX 153. First, it maximizes horsepower by using a straight exhaust pipe design. Second, it reduces the amount of under-hood heat produced. Third, the rear-exiting design distributes weight to contribute to the excellent balance of the sled.
Forced air radiator ducting
The FX Nytro MTX 153’s airflow design pulls fresh air in from around the headlight and forces it through the radiator fins for high cooling capacity, resulting in consistent engine performance even in low-snow conditions.
15 x 153 x 2.25-inch Single-ply Camoplast® Maverick™ track
Yamaha and Camoplast® collaborated in the design of the Maverick™ track. The 15x153x2.25-inch track features a 3-inch pitch to allow more snow to pack in between the lugs for a firmer grip on the snow. Also, the lugs are extremely varied in design and profile for even more traction in multiple snow conditions.
FXG2 front suspension geometry
The FX Nytro MTX 153 features the acclaimed FX Nytro front suspension with more trail and relaxed caster for greater deep snow handling and side hilling ability. The sway bar was also removed to enhance handling in steep, mountainous regions.
FX™ chassis with sport rider-forward position
The compact design puts the engine down low and back in the chassis, leaving the top of the cab open for airflow. This gives the FX Nytro MTX 153 a very centralized mass. The FX Nytro MTX 153’s sport rider-forward ergonomic design puts the rider in an aggressive, yet comfortable, forward posture.
NEW! Tall, wide, hooked mountain handlebars
The 2013 FX Nytro MTX 153 uses the same handlebar as the trail models, with less bend than the previous mountain setup. The center strap has a new billet clamp mounting and the strap itself stands taller over the center post. The hooks have the same grip material as the main bar section, for consistent control, regardless of hand position on the grip.
Composite upper skeleton
The headlight assembly and upper portion of the FX Nytro MTX 153 is supported by a super-lightweight composite framework. By using a rugged, high tech composite material as the structure for the top portion of the sled, Yamaha engineers were able to keep the mass centered low and deep in the chassis.
The FX Nytro MTX 153 features a lightweight tunnel design. With the runningboards tipped up at an aggressive 11-degree angle, the FX Nytro MTX 153 delivers big ground clearance for deep snow capability. The design also features large snow evacuation and boot gripper punch outs.
ProMountain Air rear suspension
The Nytro MTX 153 is equipped with a totally redesigned rear suspension. In a joint effort, Yamaha co-developed this suspension with Fox to make it the best suspension for any mountain rider. It is equipped with a Fox® FLOAT™ 2 and Fox® FLOAT™ XV shock that boost this suspension to a whole another level. This combined with a new shallow approach angle, a semi coupled design, and new lightweight rails, make this one suspension you don’t want to mess with.
Fox® FLOAT® 2 front shocks
Fox® FLOAT® 2 shocks use an air spring designed to force the piston to rebound. This eliminates the need for steel coil springs. They cut three pounds off the sled’s overall weight, as compared to traditional coil over springs. They are individually tunable by using a pocket-sized air pump, which comes with the sled, so consumers will be able to set the front suspension up to their liking.
Wide runningboards with traction
The FX Nytro MTX 153 is all about fun and handling. As a result, the runningboards are nice and wide and loaded with traction. Riders will be able to put their feet anywhere on the runningboards and have confidence in their traction. This allows the rider to move around and really enjoy the full fun of a lightweight sled.
Wheels with removable bearings
Replaceable bearing wheels makes maintenance easy and cheap, while the 6 spoke design adds to the visual appeal of the already super cool looking FX Nytro MTX 153. This design is implemented on all rear wheels.
Sculpted narrow seat
The FX Nytro MTX has a narrow seat for added comfort. In addition to putting the rider in a tall, forward, attack posture, the seat’s height makes it plush and comfortable for a full day of riding. The narrow seat sits atop the beveled tunnel, which allows the track to be a traditional 15 inches wide, to maximize traction.
NEW! Dual controls for Concentrated hand warmers
The FX Nytro MTX has new dual controls to let you adjust the warmer levels for your hands on the left side and the thumb on your right. These hand warmers have a concentrated element design, which focuses the heat in the middle of the grip material. The result is a warm grip for your hand’s most comfortable riding position. In addition, an insulator is placed between the heating element and handlebar to retain heat longer and more efficiently than previous designs.
Standard electric start
Yamaha’s electric starter system allows consumers to fire up their FX Nytro MTX 153 with the turn of a key. There is no pulling on a nylon cord to get this high-tech engine growling! Electric start is a standard feature on all of Yamaha’s 4-stroke machines.
The digital gauge displays key information at a glance. Vehicle speed is displayed on a large LCD readout. In addition, the rider can select tachometer, odometer or tripmeter data to appear on secondary readout. The gauge also displays system warning lights, fuel level, and warmer intensity.
Standard mechanical reverse
The FX Nytro MTX 153’s simple reverse system allows riders to back out of tight spaces hassle-free. It’s engaged with the lever located on the right shroud. Just pull out the lever and slide it to the right for quick and easy use.
Quick-release, single-piece hood/console shroud
The FX Nytro MTX 153 has a single-piece hood and console shroud. The design allows owners to open and close the top portion of the sled easily with Dzus® quick-connect fasteners.
New graphic packages
The FX Nytro MTX 153 comes in two graphic packages; Yamaha Blue as well as black/charcoal. These awesome designs produce one of the best looking sleds on the snow.
