Yamaha’s proven 535cc 2-stroke engine – re-engineered

This ultra-reliable unit has been re-designed with a new flat slide carburettor with heated body, mapped DC ignition, ‘Autolube’ oil injection and increased (400W) electrical output for lighting and accessories. The result is a quieter, cleaner, more economical engine with improved performance and throttle response.

Brand new tunnel and body designs transform handling

The new styling looks great but also improves comfort. The new tunnel and running boards help prevent snow build-up, while the taller one-piece seat and handle bar with strap, both make for easier control and more comfortable off-trail riding. The new windshield and hood with protective deflectors help keep snow out too.

Dual-shock ProComfort rear suspension

The latest Pro Comfort suspension on the VK540V features dual shock absorbers, working independently. The pre-loading of the torsion springs are easily adjustable for heavy hauling or 2-up riding with the simple tri-cam adjuster. What’s more, the flip-up rails are a huge advantage when powering up and out of deep snow in reverse.

Cobra WT™ track with 1.5″/38 mm lugs

For a machine that relies for its reputation on its ability to perform faultlessly off-trail and in the deepest and toughest snow conditions, nothing less than the very best will do. So for this exciting new VK540V, it’s light but tough rear skid is wrapped in the very latest deep snow performance Cobra WT™ track with 1.5″/38 mm lugs.

Front suspension designed for stable cornering and steering

The TSS front suspension system is legendary and has well proven performance on trail, but it’s when you take the VK540V off trail and into deep snow that it comes into its own. In combination with the wide, stable skis, the result is an easy to handle, predictable machine you’ll really enjoy riding – even to work!

Dual-range Hi/Lo and reverse transmission

The VK540V’s dual-range transmission makes it very simple to operate this snowmobile in low range – when towing heavy loads at slower speeds – or in high range at most other times. Switching between ranges, or selecting reverse, is smooth and easy using the transmission lever on the console.

New more comfortable seating and extra storage

The new luxurious seats are now taller, for greater comfort and easier off-trail riding – and are now at the same level for both driver and passenger, making long distance trips a comfortable pleasure rather than an endurance test. What’s more, the seat lifts up to reveal a very spacious and practical storage area underneath.

New body design and improved ergonomics

In the new body and windshield, form follows function. The new body shape aids snow clearance when in deep powder and combined with the large, wide screen, it creates a complete aerodynamic package that protects the driver and the passenger from the elements. Visibility is also greatly improved with the powerful new dual headight.
