Top Features

  • 146-inch Utility Suspension with Flip-up Rails The long 12.5-inch-travel rear suspension features a hinged, spring-loaded tail-end section that allows the rear idler wheels to travel upwards in an arc when going over bumpy trails making the sled feel and handle like a shorter track model. This articulating features also assists the sled when in reverse by helping guide the track up on top of the snow, not letting it dig in. Another unique feature is offered to lock the rail so it doesn't articulate for maximum traction when pulling a heavy load. A simple 'push pin' is used to engage the rail extension when needed to help keep the skis down and get all the traction possible out of the 146-inch track.
  • High & Low Handlebar and Thumb Warmers Standard handlebar and throttle lever warmers are included.
  • Full-Size Wind Screen The tall 15.5-inch wind deflector is designed to protect the operator with its sculpted, turn-out shape.


  • A simple push of a button causes the engine to restart in reverse. The audible 'back-up' beeper indicates the reverse system is engaged and continues to beep until the button is pushed again to restart the engine in its forward direction. A simple, lightweight and efficient way to back out of a tight situation.
  • Standard adjustable handlebar and throttle lever warmers are included.
  • The large 10.6-gallon / 40.1-liter fuel capacity coupled with the frugal demand of the mid-sized, EFI engine, means extended operating range for the Transporter.
  • The rear rack provides a stable platform to facilitate a wide range storage requirements.
  • Turnkey electric starter combined with electronic fuel injection provides quick and reliable ignition in all conditions.
  • The tall 15.5-inch wind deflector is designed to protect the operator with its sculpted, turn-out shape
  • The seat design offers easy transition from seated to standing. Side-to-side movement is also made easier with its tapered sides to aid in maneuverability both on- and off-trail. And it's easy to add the optional passenger seat for two-up versatility.


  • The power valve system tunes the exhaust port opening based on RPM to ensure maximum torque and fuel efficiency across the power band.
  • Electronic fuel injection provides efficient fuel delivery into the cylinder based on engine RPM for maximum torque and response. The computerized fuel injection ensures reliable cold weather starting, maximum fuel range with low exhaust gas emissions
  • The strong Hayes hydraulic 'Stealth' brake master-cylinder is equipped with a composite 'Stealth' brake lever to provide great modulation for better feel and powerful stopping performance.
  • The compact power plant weighs in under 50 pounds packing a mighty punch with its class leading horsepower-to-weight ratio.
  • With alloy bulkhead and tunnel heat exchangers, the engine stays cool when things heat up.


  • The lightweight Yamaha Mountain Ski delivers everything you want in a deep snow ski. Its seven-inch-wide footprint enhances flotation and actively lifts the sled’s nose up on plane in deep powder. Traction lugs on the top of the ski give you a sure foothold when the situation gets really gnarly. The single keel design delivers light steering effort, yet confident and predictable handling on hard pack and in fresh fluff.
  • The 4.5-inch riser block positions the hooked end bars with mountain strap within easy reach whether seated or standing.
  • Derived from the sleek SRV-M front suspension, this lightweight design is ultra-compact to reduce unwanted spindle and suspension component drag in deep snow. The 38-inch stance allows for great maneuverability in tight terrain. The lightweight, forged aluminum spindles join the widely spaced upper and lower control arms producing a large caster angle for tight turning and ease of steering.
  • This unique feature allows for the rear rail assembly to be locked for maximum, on-trail track length when additional traction is required.
  • Almost a thing of the past, having a modern snowmobile with the weight of a 30-year-old fan-cooled sled opens the door for a whole new era in snowmobiling function and fun.
