Advanced Fuel Injection and engine setting control

The Genesis® 4-stroke engine uses Yamaha's advanced Fuel Injection system to control fuel flow. The result is hassle-free, spot-on performance and throttle response across the full power band, whatever the conditions. The outstanding YCC-T and D-MODE systems put even more engine control in your hands, for relaxed riding.

ProComfort 151 rear suspension

Designed as the perfect rear suspension for passenger snowmobiles, the ProComfort 151 delivers excellent ride comfort and consistent anti-bottoming performance for one rider or two, with a flip-up rail to make off trail manoeuvres even easier. Spring pre-loading can be easily varied using the convenient Tri-cam adjuster.

Revolutionary EPS (Electric Power Steering)

EPS means easier, more relaxed riding. A small electric actuator produces the optimum level of assistance for the speed and snow conditions, so the machine feels lighter and more stable during turns, with less ski lift. It also insulates the rider from kickback, making it easier to move the handlebars for more precise steering.

Comfortable and relaxing handlebar position

To optimise rider ergonomics, the handlebar has been set well forward. Analysis has shown that this extra space makes steering and balancing the machine far easier and contributes to the rider's confidence and comfort.

Rider comfort - fully adjustable back rest

A simple lever release makes it easy to move the whole backrest forward or backward for solo or 2-up riding. The cushion can also be rotated for optimal personal comfort. The level-adjustable heated passenger hand grips have two height positions, to accommodate both large and small passengers.

Multi-function digital instrument panel

All essential ride data is displayed on a fully-featured digital gauge, displaying speed, RPM, grip heater level, dual trip meters and a clock. In addition, an oil trip readout tells you when it's time for an oil change, while a fuel trip readout displays kilometres covered since the fuel warning light came on.
