Feature Benefits

Top Features

  • 540cc 2-Stroke Fan-Cooled Engine
    A proven 540cc 2-stroke twin engine powers this ultra dependable utility snowmobile. Based on the legendary 540cc engine, Yamaha engineers improved midrange torque and reduced fuel consumption by nearly 25%, meeting current emissions standards with even more reliability.
  • Heated Mikuni TM33 Carburetor
    The heated Mikuni TM33 flat slide carburetor delivers crisp throttle response while the small dual electronic heater coils in the carburetor body stabilize idle speed and reduce plug fouling. Together, these efficient carburetors help deliver great fuel economy and reliability.
  • Dual-Bulb Headlight
    Featuring a fully integrated dual-bulb headlight, the twin headlights throws more light on the trail than before.
  • Hi-Output Stator Ring Design
    Designed to manufacture twice the electrical output, the 400 watt multi-coil stator ring powers the new carb heaters, the twin-bulb headlight, the hand warmers and many other accessories.
  • Large Capacity Fuel Tank
    The VK540's fuel tank offers extended range and expanded work capability. Boasting a capacity of 11.6 usg / 44 L, you'll see nearly double the range on a single tank of fuel, compared to the original VK540.

Comfort

  • Pro Comfort Suspension
    Whether you're riding one- or two-up or hauling a heavy payload, the dual-shock, fully-coupled suspension features a simple and effective flip-lever torsion spring adjustment. A 40mm, High Pressure Gas (HPG) shock provides exceptional control, fade resistance and maximum work abilities.
  • LED Taillight
    With a significantly longer lifespan, the high-intensity LED brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design.
  • Workforce Mirrors
    Functional mirrors tout a large viewing area, making it easier to see what lies behind. The mirrors are mounted on the interior side of the Protective Windshield to shield them from potential damage.
  • Tunnel Design
    The tunnel design includes large snow evacuation holes on running boards with traction and is built out of lightweight, high-tensile steel for durability in the toughest conditions.
  • Protective Windshield
    A wide, tall, wrap-around windshield delivers great protection from the elements as well as unsuspecting tree branches and limbs. Tested in wind tunnels, the windshield reduces unwanted, negative swirl and delivers a greater “pocket” of comfort for all riders.
  • Standard Electric Start
    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.
  • Standard Tow Hitch
    The standard factory rear-mounted tow hitch is ready for any additional gear or occasional light-duty work.
  • Expansive Under-Seat Storage
    Under the hinged, flip-up seat, the large under-seat storage touts an integrated tool kit and room for much more.

Performance

  • Three Speed Transmission
    The Hi/Lo transmission with reverse is a workhorse one minute and a versatile trail cruiser the next. With a simple-to-use manual actuated lever, you can select from “normal” high range for cruising to low range for pulling heavy loads.
  • Special Clutch Calibration
    With smooth engagement and roll out, the clutch calibration maximizes ability and utility, without sacrificing operational performance.
  • Camoplast 1.5 Cobra Wide Track
    With confidence-inspiring deep snow flotation and powerful pulling force, the 20" x 154" x 1.5" Cobra track maximize all available snow. The 1.5" lug is perfect for those low-speed or high-load situations.

Handling

  • TSS Front Suspension
    Telescopic struts offer the ultimate solution for deep snow mobility and durability.
  • High Flotation UHMW Skis
    Wide skis add flotation when traveling off-trail while the engineered keel provides predictable and easy-to-steer handling.
