3-Cylinder Genesis® 4-stroke EFI engine

The durable, ultra-reliable Genesis® 3-cylinder unit features EFI, ISC (Idle Speed Control) and efficient CVT settings, all working together to provide easy starting - even at extremely low temperatures - with smooth, quieter performance and superb fuel economy. The latest radiator design further improves cooling performance.

Electric Power Steering (EPS)

EPS makes it easier to control the machine with accuracy and precision - making you an even better, more relaxed rider. Its computer-controlled actuator provides the optimum level of steering assistance, so the machine feels lighter and more stable during turns, with reduced ski lift. EPS also helps isolate the rider from handlebar kick-back.

Pro Comfort Suspension W/Flip up rails

With this dual-shock system, the damping force of each large diameter (40 mm) shock absorber acts independently, allowing the rider to use 'body force' to ride agressively when required on difficult terrain. Deep snow performance is supreme and the flip-up rail system is a big advantage when powering up and out in reverse.

Camoplast® Cobra low-loss track

This wide, low-loss, lightweight and durable Camoplast® Cobra track gives excellent floatation and features extrovert axle sprockets with 1.5"/38mm lugs. These mesh precisely with the fully clipped holes in the track, acting like a gear mechanism to deliver the best levels of grip and propulsion, especially for deep snow and heavy hauling.

New front suspension ensures stable cornering and steering

A new spindle design is paired with aluminium HPG front shocks, allowing a specially calibrated set-up that fully exploits the advantages of the new Electric Power Steering system. The long, curved, gull-wing A-arms deliver confident handling with excellent cornering stability - and help avoid under-snow obstacles.

Spacious storage, large fuel tank and bright LED tail lights

The large seat will accommodate the driver and passenger in great comfort (the narrow shape of the large 44-Litre fuel tank helps with this) but it also lifts up to reveal a very spacious storage area. Also designed with the working professional in mind are the strong rear cargo rack and powerful LED tail lights.
