Key Features

    998cc Genesis Turbo 4-stroke engine

    The most advanced and powerful engine ever to hit the snowmobile industry, this smooth, flexible 3-cylinder unit breathes easily at any altitude - in any conditions. Massive torque and pulling power are assured across the rev band, with instant throttle response and no 'turbo lag'. A genuine power revolution in the 'real' 180HP class.

    Yamaha YSRC clutch system

    Our YSRC clutch is designed to cope with the massive torque and huge power output of the Yamaha 998cc Genesis® Turbo triple. Shifting is extremely efficient with a fast backshift response to match. The high strength castings, efficient cooling and finely tuned settings combine to ensure excellent V-belt durability and low maintenance.

    ARCS front suspension - FOX® Zero QS3-R shocks

    A special characteristic of this latest model is the unique Advanced Rolling Center Suspension (ARCS) with its new spindle design and lighter upper A-arms. Add in the latest FOX Zero QS3 shocks - with Kashima coat - and the result is ultra-responsive handling from a sturdy suspension system that’s set up to tackle any trail or track.

    Dual Shock SR 137 rear suspension with QS3 shocks

    The Sidewinder L-TX LE offers an impressive range of adjustable tuning options, thanks to its premium shock package - a FOX® 1.5 Zero QS3 centre shock plus FOX® 2.0 Zero QS3-R rear shock and torsion spring set-up. Soften it up for fresh powder riding - or stiffen it for fast trail blazing.

    High-performance Camso® BackCountry track

    A powerful performer in all conditions, the Camso® BackCountry track, specially chosen for this Sidewinder, features 1.75"/44mm lugs. Driven by extrovert drive sprockets meshing precisely with holes in the track, it acts like a gear mechanism, to deliver outstanding levels of grip and propulsion in all snow conditions.

    J-hook handlebar and riser

    A tall, lightweight aluminum riser sets the handlebar at the right height for maximum control in fresh powder. This pivot-adjustable riser allows you to choose the optimum angle for your own riding position. The straight J-hooked handlebar also makes control easier and gives precise feedback from the front suspension.

    Deluxe instrument panel with dual digital displays

    Multiple sensors ride on board with you, continuously monitoring engine data to provide essential rider information. In addition to speed, rpm, fuel, oil temperature and pressure, a wide range of trip-related data can be selected. Like a clock with hour-meter, 'Distance Travelled' information - and even an altimeter!

    Luxury and comfort all the way

    The LE version of our Sidewinder L-TX makes off-trail riding a real pleasure, with luxuries like a heated Mountain seat, dual-switched hand/thumb warmers, push-button electric start and reverse - and a neatly designed super-short windscreen. There are spacious stowing facilities too, including goggle and belt bags and a tunnel storage bag.
