FEATURES

New 998cc Genesis Turbo 4-stroke engine

The most advanced and powerful engine ever to hit the snowmobile industry, this smooth, flexible 3-cylinder unit breathes easily at any altitude – in any conditions. Massive torque and pulling power are assured across the rev band, with instant throttle response and no ‘turbo lag’. A genuine power revolution in the real 180HP class.

Agile, responsive chassis – low weight with high strength

The tough Mountain chassis, engineered for the Sidewinder series, features aluminium construction with a load-bearing, triangulated design to help keep weight low and strength high. The result is razor-sharp agility and a superbly balanced ride, with the dynamics to complement a huge variety of riding styles.

A comfortable riding position tuned to your style

The comfortable heated seat, the J-hook bars with mountain strap, the lightweight steering spindle – all combine to give you comfortable control over the dynamic, agile chassis. Easy counter-steering on steep sidehills comes naturally too, thanks to the handlebar’s flat turning arc.

Asymetric front suspension and narrow ski stance

An outstanding characteristic of all our Sidewinder models is the unique suspension design and ski geometry. For the front of the B-TX LE 153 we’ve chosen FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL shocks, which deliver ultra-responsive handling – yet with the strength to handle the demands of this machine’s natural deep snow and back country habitat.

Dual Shock rear suspension for stablility and control

The Sidewinder B-TX offers an impressive range of easily adjustable pressure and tuning options, with its FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL R shocks. We’ve also developed special springless suspension for these models which is designed to reduce the amount (and weight) of built-up snow, to give you better stability and control.

High-performance Camoplast® Power Claw track

A stunning performer in extreme conditions, the Camoplast® Power Claw track, specially chosen for this new Sidewinder, features 2.25″ (57mm) lugs. The track is driven by extrovert drive sprockets which mesh precisely with holes in the track, acting like a gear mechanism to deliver outstanding levels of grip and propulsion.

In addition to its stylish dual digital gauges, which can deliver a wide range of clearly presented data, this LE model features a heated seat, a new tunnel bag and thumb warmers – not to mention other luxury storage facilities and the ultimate convenience of push-button electric starting and lever-controlled reverse.

New Yamaha YSRC clutch system

Our new YSRC clutch is designed to cope with the massive torque and high power output of the new 998cc Genesis® Turbo triple. Shifting is more efficient than ever and is combined with a faster backshift response too. Improved cooling, higher casting strength and finely tuned settings ensure excellent V-belt durability and low maintenance.
