Yamaha 2016 Mountain Snowmobiles Line Up
Yamaha just released their 2016 line up. A new front suspension, fresh graphics packages and exclusive LE series features, including a 3-inch track, are some of what’s included with the 2016 4-stroke mountain machines.
February 25, 2015 (Toronto, ON) – Yamaha announced its largest 4-stroke snowmobile product line ever today with a number of new models and variations, including ten Limited Edition models only available during the ‘Spring Power Surge’ program. “Each year, we’re bringing more and more packages to market that will help our dealers serve the unique needs of the marketplace,” said the head of Yamaha’s North American Snowmobile team, Peter Smallman-Tew. “The 2016 model year has a lot of exciting additions that have us competing in more categories than we ever have with the four-stroke platform.”
For 2016, the SRViper M-TX will be available in 141, 153 and 162-inch track lengths in three distinct trim packages and six unique colour packages.
At the heart of 2016 M-TX is the all-new SRV-M front suspension. The sculpted spindle, tucked upper and lower control arms, and narrowed 34.5-inch stance all contribute to a suspension design that is 2.4 pounds lighter, easier to steer and delivers dramatically improved deep snow capabilities.
Our DX models, available in both 153 and 162 track lengths, feature black or red plastics and black tunnels, HPG coil over shocks all-around, and the traction of a 2.6-inch Power Claw track.
The M-TX SE line has the options of 141, 153 and 162 track lengths. These models tout upgraded control in the form of Fox FLOAT 3 shocks up front and Dual Shock SR suspension in the rear. In addition, a new for 2016 lightweight drilled brake rotor also comes standard.
For those wanting the ultimate in deep snow capability, the M-TX LE series pulls out all the stops. Leading the way are new FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL and Evol R at all four suspension points on the sled. Wrapping around the rear skid is an all-new, 3-inch Power Claw track that comes standard on all LE model M-TX’s.
Other Yamaha features found exclusively on the LE series include a new larger rear storage bag; heated mountain seat a lightweight drilled brake rotor, goggle bag, and vertical steering post to go along with unique Yamaha blue and white or red & white colour options.
The Phazer M-TX returns with its lightweight 2-cylinder engine and agile boon-docking chassis setup.
The 2016 snowmobile line is sending the message that Yamaha is here to Conquer Snow in every category, for every rider.
