This is a snowmobile manufactured with advanced usability and technical perfor- mance for professional use, such as lengthy drives on uneven grounds, quick reac- tiontostop-and-gos,andloadingandtowingluggage.Thehybridframeandhigh- ly rigid body comes equipped with wider, newly designed skis and EPS (Electric Power Steering). Along with the speci cations of the EPS, each detail of the ski is carefully designed and widened so that the snowmobile will not sink into the snow, improving driving ability on deep snow as well as steering on various snow sur- faces. The Shroud and windshield are built simply but strongly, both designed us- ing  uid and sensory analysis. With increased snow- and wind-resistance the snow mobile design achieved a more comfortable ride for both driver and passenger. (Description / Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.) Launch Year / 2017

This snowmobile is made on the pursuit of safety, reliability, and durability during use in cold climates. The shape of the windshield prevents unwanted snow, which makes visibility clearer and cuts down on the driver’s exhaustion. It has all-covered bumpers that minimize damage and a high capacity cargo rack, which demonst- rates how both function and form are harmonically and excellently brought toge- ther in the design.
