    397cc 2-stroke engine with EFI

    This 2-stroke unit is yet another industry first, its efficient EFI system helping it punch out very lively horsepower. With such a lightweight engine (under 50 lbs) partnering such a lightweight machine, the result is a power-to-weight ratio that promises high-level excitement all the way down the trails - and out into the back country. Pure fun!

    Ultra-lightweight chassis design

    The latest-technology alloy chassis has been designed to take full advantage of the responsive, free-revving new engine. In development, the focus has been on saving weight without compromising strength and durability, enabling this innovative machine to offer very nimble handling, razor-sharp agility and a comfortable, balanced ride.

    Twin-tube, dual-shock rear suspension

    For exceptional handling and agility, the SXVenom's 10.7" rear suspension system features torsion springs and dual, twin-tubed shocks. The combination of this versatile system with the advanced front suspension and super-light chassis has created a uniquely capable trail machine - one that isn't just dynamic, but that also feels comfortable and relaxing to ride.

    Sleek, light 38" SRV front suspension

    A direct descendent of our sleek SRV-M suspension, this system is not only ultra-lightweight, but its compact design reduces the unwanted drag of suspension components in deep snow. The neutral stance delivers great manoeuvrability in tight terrain, while still showing polite and predictable manners on the trail.

    Lightweight spindles and Yamaha Stryke skis

    Light, forged aluminium spindles and wide-spaced control arms on the SRV front suspension, give a large caster angle for tight turns and ultra-precise straight-line steering. This format has been specially chosen to complement the characteristics and footprint of the single-keel Yamaha STRYKE skis. Result? Unmatched handling precision in all snow conditions.

    121 x 14 x 1" Camso Hacksaw track - for real grip

    Perfectly tuned to our mid-size SXVenom, with its lightweight chassis and suspension, the proven Camso Hacksaw track's 121 x 14 footprint helps you blast away up the trails like no other in its class. In fact, this machine is so versatile that it also offers outstanding levels of grip and propulsion in deep snow, promising stunning performance in all conditions.

    Comfortable seat & grippy running boards

    The seat is great for long days out on the trails, but despite a strong focus on comfort, the design of the seat also helps to give you precise handling control, enabling you to lean easily - and change smoothly from sitting to standing in a blink. The serrated running boards shed snow easily and give you great grip and confidence when riding standing up.

    Electric starting & push-button reverse

    From the moment you step aboard, the fun can start, thanks to the turnkey electric starting and the supreme efficiency of the EFI system. Once you're out there in the deep powder, the simple, push-button electronic reverse system comes into its own to get you out of a tight spot. The audible 'beeper' warning helps with safer manoeuvring.

    Hand/thumb warmers & digital gauges

    Practical luxuries are a well-known Yamaha snowmobile speciality and a great many are incorporated in the Venom line-up. Examples are the adjustable hand and thumb warmers, which are comfortingly standard, while our compact and stylish digital gauge keeps you informed with clear displays of rpm, speed, fuel and hours run, as well as important engine data.
