Top Features

  • Genesis 499cc Sport Performance Engine
    A clear leader in its class, the lightweight and dependable sport –performance Genesis twin was designed specifically to deliver a quick revving and torque laden power band. An advanced fuel injection system ensures consistent and efficient performance, while a counterbalanced crankshaft results in a smooth and super-crisp throttle response.
  • FOX FLOAT 2 Front Shocks
    FOX FLOAT 2 air shocks feature an infinitely adjustable, no tool required, air spring. By changing the air pressure in the main chamber with the included pump, the FLOAT® is the most progressive, adjustable, and lightweight air shock available.
  • HPG Compression Adjustable Rear Shock
    A 40mm, High Pressure Gas (HPG) aluminum bodied rear shock features a remote reservoir for increased oil capacity and reduced fading. A compression clicker adjuster allows riders to tune to conditions and riding preferences.
  • Lightweight YZ Style Seat
    Inspired from our family of motocross bikes, the lightweight seat is taller and narrower than a traditional snowmobile seat, providing greatly enhanced ergonomics for an active riding experience.
  • Tuner II Skis
    Developed exclusively by Yamaha engineers, the Tuner II Ski incorporates a dual keel design that can be calibrated through 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.
  • Dual Shock CK Rear Suspension
    The conventional designed Dual Shock CK rear suspension is unique to the Phazer R-TX in several ways. First the suspension is built upon a narrowed, 14-inch track design for ergonomics and nimble handling; the suspension also incorporates oversized rear carrier wheels to improve efficiency and reduce friction. A premium HPG clicker shock handles damping duties for the terrain capable Phazer R-TX.
  • 1-Inch RipSaw Track
    The popular RipSaw pattern track is narrowed to just 14-inches for ergonomics and handling, while 1-inch lugs provide the ideal balance of traction for the sport-performance Phazer R-TX.


  • YXRC Clutching
    Featuring Yamaha drive and driven clutching, the lightweight YXRC system delivers smooth engagement, instant acceleration, fast reacting backshift, and cool operating temperatures for a long belt life. Just like its big brother YVXC clutch system, the YXRC is smooth, responsive, and durable.
  • Wide Running Boards
    With its rider active design, narrowed seat, and sculpted cockpit, the Phazer R-TX platform touts wide running boards with additional grip for a sure-footed stance.
  • Rear Exit Exhaust
    Often considered a hallmark feature of many Yamaha snowmobiles, the Phazer R-TX platform also touts a rear-exit exhaust system that is exposed to the snow under-seat for additional cooling.


  • Link Type Sway Bar
    A standard link-type sway bar keeps the front suspension planted and flat, even in rutted, high-speed turns.
  • Extruded Aluminum Spindle
    Saving weight and creating a nimble and responsive riding experience was at the foundation of the Phazer R-TX platform. Extruded aluminum spindles are lightweight yet incredibly strong.
  • Rider Active Cockpit
    From the sculpted seat, wide running boards, and open design of the controls, the Phazer R-TX platform was designed with the rider who like to be “one” with the machine when riding.


  • Wide, Hooked End Handlebars
    No other touch point is more important to a rider than the handlebars. Yamaha bars are flat and wide, engineered for comfort, control, and natural ergonomics. Integrated hooked ends add additional control while cornering, and feature heated grips across that span the entire length.
  • LED Taillight
    The high-intensity LED taillight/brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design, and delivers a significantly longer lifespan.
  • Digital Gauge With Push Button Reverse
    The compact handlebar mounted digital gauge is packed with information and is displayed on a large face, easy to read gauge. In addition, a convenient electric push button reverse is housed within the gauge package and actuates a servo-controlled reverse gear.
