FEATURES

Yamaha Snowmobiles Sidewinder M-TX SE 162 Cyprus

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.

Mountain chassis with lightweight ski spindles

Our latest chassis, first developed for the SRViper Mountain series, features lightweight ski spindles to allow a narrower ski stance without compromising the innovative, high performance design of the suspension geometry. So weight is kept low and strength high. The result is razor-sharp agility and a superbly balanced ride.

A riding position tuned to the mountains

The short, high seat, tapered towards the front, works together with the tall riser handlebar position – with mountain strap – to give you great comfort and control over the agile chassis. Easy counter steering on steep sidehills comes naturally too, thanks to the handlebar’s flat turning arc.

Independent double wishbone front suspension

An outstanding characteristic of our Sidewinder models is the unique suspension design and ski geometry, but for the extreme M-TX SE 162 we’ve fitted FOX FLOAT® 3 shocks. These deliver ultra-responsive handling, but with the strength needed to handle the demands of the very deepest powder and steepest mountainsides.

MTN Float Action – 162 rear suspension

The Sidewinders give you an impressive range of easily adjustable tuning options, thanks to their Monotube aluminium HP-Gas and FOX FLOAT® 3 shocks. What’s more, the special springless suspension developed for these models has been designed to reduce the amount (and weight) of built-up snow, to give you ultimate stability and control.

Camoplast® Power Claw 3.0″/76mm track

A stunning performer in all conditions, the Camoplast® Power Claw track features 3.0 inch (76 mm) 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, particularly in deep snow.

Deluxe instrument panel with dual digital displays

Multiple sensors monitor engine data continuously to provide essential information. Speed, rpm, fuel, oil temperature and pressure and a range of trip-related data can be selected. Like a clock with hour-meter, ‘distance travelled’ – and even an altimeter! The heated seat and rear storage bag are extra luxuries.

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 Genesius® Turbo triple. Shifting is more efficient than ever and is combined with a faster backshift response too. Improved cooliing, higher casting strength and finely tuned settings ensure excellent V-belt durability and low maintenance.
