NEW ARCS Front Suspension The new ARCS front suspension features taller, high-strength, forged alloy spindles and redesigned lightweight upper A-arms. The geometry is further revised to optimize suspension function while increasing ground clearance. This results in greater bite with less chassis roll for more predictable and consistent handling.
NEW Gen 2 Body Work The SRViper L-TX GT pulls styling cues from its big brother, the Sidewinder. The fresh aerodynamic lines help improve airflow around the engine and clutch bay. Intake efficiency also benefits from the shape and induction louvers.
Updated Genesis 1049cc 4-Stroke Engine The proven, 3-cylinder - Genesis engine features a new ECU map offering a boost in power over previous versions. With a sophisticated closed-loop fuel injection system and 4-valves per cylinder, the 1049cc engine delivers class-leading horsepower, instant throttle response and a thick torque curve that jettisons you from corner to corner in a blink of an eye. All with great fuel economy and a reputation for bulletproof durability.
Tether Switch An integrated switch automatically shuts-down the engine when ever the driver is not on-board.
Fox® 1.5 QS3 Front Shocks The SRViper L-TX GT is equipped with Fox QS3 shocks for a premium upgrade to this model. The Fox® high-pressure gas, coil-over shock features a piggyback chamber to deliver reduced fading, exceptional control, and three easy to adjust compression damping performance settings so you can quickly and easily adjust the ride to conditions and riding preference.
NEW Hayes Performance Brakes A dual-piston brake caliper applies braking forces directly to the drive shaft and is mated to an oversized, lightweight drilled rotor. The 'Stealth' master cylinder and composite Stealth brake lever offer excellent modulation and feel with ergonomically precise operation.
High Flow Intake And Exhaust The forward facing design of the air-box and engine intake system on the Genesis 1049cc engine results in maximum airflow to the engine and no starvation. This ensures maximum power and throttle response. In addition, a high-flow, stainless steel exhaust header is cooled by snow for optimum performance without excessive heat and noise.
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. The YVXC clutch system delivers Yamaha’s hallmark smooth power delivery, responsive engine feel and unmatched quality.
RipSaw™ II Track Regarded as the best high-performance terrain track available, the 1.25" lug design of the RipSaw™ II delivers incredible acceleration, braking control, and handling in a wide variety of conditions.
Lightweight SRV Front Suspension The over-structure design of the SRV chassis creates a rigid mounting point for the unique 30-degree swept design of the SRV front suspension. The “angled” mounting design directs impacts back to the strongest points of the chassis, creating a more stable and predictable ride. Tall, lightweight forged spindles help to deliver an incredibly strong front suspension with controlled camber geometry for stability and light steering effort.
SRV Chassis Sophisticated aluminum extrusions are joined with precision castings to create an incredibly strong, lightweight and rider intuitive chassis. The over-structure design provides rigidity and is designed to disperse severe impacts throughout the chassis making it exceptionally resilient.
Fox® QS3 Rear Suspension System The Dual Shock SR 137 long travel rear suspension offers premium ride comfort with excellent bump bridging capabilities, traction and tunability thanks to a premium Fox® 2.0 QS3 rear shock absorber. The SR 137 is a “coupled” suspension that utilizes a unique “sliding” front arm mount. With up to half-inch of movement at the front arms “slot”, the system allows the SR 137 to deliver controlled (reduced) ski-lift during acceleration while still retaining front arm bump compliance.
Magnesium Drive Case/Oil Reservior The multi-function case is made of lightweight magnesium and serves multiple functions. Foremost it serves as the chain-case housing with integrated push-button reverse; it also provides a rigid mounting location for the upper chassis spar; and it serves as the remote oil reservoir. The multi-function design makes for a lightweight and more compact chassis design resulting in improved ride and handling.
NEW Stealth Control System The handle bar controls feature a left hand switch cluster which allows for 'on the fly' access to the multi-step hand and thumb warmer adjusters. Information available on the multi-function gauge can be easily selected with a convenient toggle switch and the push button reverse gear switch is also located in the left hand cluster. The right side of the bar is clean with an ergonomically shaped throttle lever and simple, stand-alone emergency stop switch. An updated Hayes Stealth brake cylinder equipped with a new composite Stealth brake lever provides great modulation for better feel and powerful stopping performance.
LED Headlight And Taillight The new high-intensity LED headlight is lighter and brighter than the traditional incandescent design, and delivers an accurately focused beam with a significantly longer lifespan. A bright LED tail/brake light assembly complements the new headlight.
Tall Wind Deflector Escape the wind and winter chill with a sculpted, functional windshield. A small lip at the top deflects wind and snow up and over the rider at speed, while flared edges provide added protection and warmth for your hands.
Plush Heated Trail Seat Special high density foam is sculpted to aid easy transition from seated to standing and shaped to allow maximum rider mobility from side to side. Its durometer is firm with just the right amount of comfort for long days in the saddle and its grippy surface helps hold you in position when grabbing a handful of throttle. The addition of a toasty heat element will be really appreciated on those long cold days.
