Feature Benefits

Top Features

  • Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCCT)
    The electronically controlled throttle system delivers next level-performance, control and efficiency. The system serves up three user-selectable performance modes: S (Sport) Mode for maximum performance, T (Touring) Mode for smooth low and mid-range response and improved fuel efficiency and E (Entry) Mode for predictable acceleration, reduced top speed and optimal fuel economy.
  • Electric Power Steering
    As the only manufacturer to offer Electric Power Steering to the snowmobile industry, Yamaha's velocity sensing system delivers maximum assistance at slow speeds to nearly zero assistance at high speeds to dramatically reduce steering effort.
  • Tuner II Skis
    Developed exclusively by Yamaha engineers, the Tuner II Skis incorporate a dual keel design that calibrates various runners and carbide lengths for rider preference. The Tuner II Ski dramatically reduces darting and steering effort while retaining predictable and sharp handling characteristics.
  • Adjustable Passenger Seat
    The backrest is full adjustable. With a simple lever release, the entire backrest moves forward or backward for either solo or two-up riding. An additional rotational adjustment for the rear cushion further enhances comfort with flexible height and heated passenger grips.
  • Integrated Hardtop Storage Trunk
    An oversized, 7-gallon rear storage trunk features a hardcover lid that is seamlessly integrated into the overall finish and a weather-resistant gasket to keep both snow and moisture at bay.

Comfort

  • Pro Comfort 151 Rear Suspension
    The dual shock, coupled rear suspension is specifically designed for all-day comfort. The unique articulated rear rail delivers additional passenger comfort in rough terrain while also making it easier to back up in soft snow conditions.
  • Wide Hooked End Handlebars
    The flat and wide handlebars are engineered for comfort, control and natural ergonomics. Integrated hooked ends add additional control options while cornering, and feature heated grips that span the entire length.
  • Standard Electric Start and Reverse
    The seamless and easy-to-use electric start delivers instant and hassle-free starts, no matter the weather, eliminating the need for an “old-school” pull rope. The convenient and effective reverse system includes a helpful alert beeper, so you always know when reverse is engaged.
  • LED Taillight
    With a significantly longer lifespan, the high-intensity LED brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design.
  • Standard Tow Hitch
    The standard factory rear-mounted tow hitch is ready for any additional gear or occasional light-duty work.

Performance

  • Genesis 1049cc 4-Stroke Engine
    Designed to be the premiere trail-cruising power plant, the three-cylinder engine features an advanced Yamaha fuel-injection system for incredibly accurate fuel metering, spot on performance and fuel economy. A broad, flat power-band delivers instant thrust from nearly any speed, and hundreds of thousands of miles by satisfied owners are a testament to its durability.
  • YVXC Clutching
    Featuring Yamaha Drive and Driven Clutching, the YVXC system delivers smooth engagement, instant acceleration, fast-reacting backshift and cool operating temperatures for a long belt life.
  • Engine Braking Reduction System
    Yamaha utilizes an engine braking reduction system for a “free-wheel” feeling on deceleration. The system allows a small amount of air to flow through the intake system upon throttle release which dramatically reduces the engine braking effect that is typically associated with four-stroke engines.

Handling

  • HPG Coil-Over Front Shocks
    High Pressure Gas (HPG) shocks with strong 40mm bodies are calibrated to deliver consistent performance and comfort with excellent fade resistance. The rebuildable shocks ensure consistent performance, with proper maintenance, season after season.
  • RipSaw I Track
    Regarded as the best high-performance terrain track available, the 151" x 1.25" RipSaw lug delivers incredible acceleration, braking control and handling in a wide variety of conditions.
  • Third Generation Front Suspension
    The sophisticated and precise design of the front suspension incorporates motion geometry that is specifically calibrated to eliminate unwanted inside ski lift while cornering. The dual A-arm system is remarkably predictable for confidence-inspiring performance in nearly any terrain.
  • HPG Rear Shocks
    Premium High Pressure Gas (HPG) shocks are found at both the front and rear arms of the rear suspension. Tuned for premium control and comfort with incredible fade resistance, the shocks are also serviceable, allowing your authorized Yamaha dealer to recharge and refresh them for consistent performance for many seasons.
