Genesis 998cc Top Performance Engine: The top-performance Genesis 998cc engine is one of the most sophisticated engines to ever power a snowmobile. The quick revving four-cylinder engine is incredibly smooth and incredibly powerful. Year after year, the 998cc delivers the perfect combination of power, fuel efficiency, and durability while exceeding clean running emission standards.
EXUP Exhaust Valve System: The Yamaha exclusive EXUP valve technology controls exhaust pressure waves for optimum intake and exhaust efficiency. The result is increased midrange torque and crisp throttle response while retaining exhilarating top-end power.
YVXC Clutching: Featuring Yamaha drive and driven clutching, the YVXC system delivers smooth engagement, instant acceleration, fast reacting backshift, and cool operating temperatures for a long belt life. The YVXC clutch system delivers Yamaha’s hallmark smooth power delivery, responsive engine feel and unmatched quality.
Engine Braking Reduction System: Unlike competitive four-stroke powered snowmobile designs, Yamaha utilizes an engine braking reduction system for a “free-wheel” feeling on deceleration. The system allows a small amount of air to flow through the intake system upon throttle release, thereby dramatically reducing the engine braking effect typically association with a four-stroke engine.
HPG Coil-Over Front Shocks: High Pressure Gas (HPG) shocks with strong 40mm bodies are calibrated to deliver consistent performance and comfort with excellent fade resistance. Plus the shocks are rebuildable, ensuring you season after season of consistent performance with proper maintenance.
Third Generation Front Suspension: The sophisticated and precise design of the front suspension incorporates a motion geometry specifically calibrated to eliminate unwanted inside ski lift while cornering. The dual A-arm system is both precise and remarkably predictable for confidence inspiring performance in nearly any terrain.
Integrated Rear Seat Storage: Like all Yamaha snowmobiles, attention to detail is found everywhere including our integrated seat storage trunk. A secure and easy to use turn clasp unlocks spacious in-seat storage large enough to hold water, goggles, gloves or other riding essentials.
Wide, Hooked End Handlebars: No other touch point is more important to a rider than the handlebars. Yamaha bars are flat and wide, engineered for comfort, control, and natural ergonomics. Integrated hooked ends add additional control while cornering, and feature heated grips across that span the entire length.
Standard Electric Start and Reverse: Seamless and easy to use electric start delivers instant and hassle free starts, no matter the weather, eliminating the need for an “old-school” pull rope. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of an effective and simple to use reverse system. Simply pull out the right-hand side lever and slide it over and you can quickly and easily back off a trailer, out of a tight spot, or help you turn around on the trail without ever leaving the seat.
LED Taillight: The high-intensity LED taillight/brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design, and delivers a significantly longer lifespan.
