2013 Yamaha Apex X-TX

Posted on by 0

The Yamaha Apex X-TX is a luxury snowmobile designed to deal effortless even with the toughest trails. The snowmobile is equipped with an EPS (Electric Power Steering) system and is powered by a fuel injected 4 cylinder engine.

The engine is mounted on a lightweight frame constructed from various types of aluminium. The bulkhead is made using Yamaha’s CF aluminium die-casting technology, while the steering gate section is pressure die-cast as a single unit. Moreover the rear frame accommodates a shortened muffler and helps to centralize mass. The ride quality is assured by lightweight HPG (High Pressure Gas) front shocks paired with rear dual shocks.

The Yamaha Apex X-TX is protected from wind and snow by an aerodynamic windshield. Moreover, the snowmobile is also offered with heated grips designed to keep your hands warm while riding. The skid is wrapped in a 144"/3658mm Camoplast Ripsaw track with a re-shaped profile assuring a proper grip on any type of snow.

Electric Power Steering (EPS)

Yamaha Apex X-TX

EPS makes it easier to control the machine with accuracy and precision – making you an even better, more relaxed rider. Its computer-controlled actuator provides the optimum level of steering assistance, so the machine feels lighter and more stable during turns, with reduced ski lift. EPS also helps isolate the rider from handlebar kick-back.

Genesis® 4-stroke Top Performance engine with EXUP

Yamaha Apex X-TX

Yamaha’s unique EXUP (Exhaust Ultimate Power Valve) technology works at its very best with this legendary 4-stroke, 5-valve engine. Torque characteristics are improved in the low and mid-RPM ranges by controlling pressure waves when intake and exhaust valves are open together. The result? Even more powerful acceleration.

Dual Shock® CK 144 suspension with Tip Up rails

Yamaha Apex X-TX

Lightweight HPG (High Pressure Gas) front shocks are teamed with rear suspension based on the Dual Shock® design that is so well proven on/off-trail. Separate centre and rear shock absorbers – an HPG centre and clicker-adjustable rear shock – make this agile machine exceptionally responsive to the contours of rough terrain.

Lightweight aluminium frame

Yamaha Apex X-TX

The lightweight frame is constructed from varying types of aluminium, to achieve an excellent balance of rigidity – the bulkhead is made using Yamaha’s unique CF aluminium die-casting technology, while the steering gate section is pressure die-cast as a single unit. The rear frame accommodates a shortened muffler and helps to centralise mass.

Camoplast® Ripsaw™ track

Yamaha Apex X-TX

The skid is wrapped in a 144"/3658mm Camoplast® Ripsaw™ track with a re-shaped profile. This large-size track transfers power from the engine to the snow surface with great efficiency and grip. The result is outstanding acceleration in any speed range.

Wide ski and optimal trail setting

Yamaha Apex X-TX

To gain maximum benefit – and enjoyment for the rider – from the unique Electric Power Steering (EPS) system, the Apex X-TX is equipped with wide crossover skis. This comfortable, soft-riding design offers excellent floatation and precise control on powder snow. The ski pivot point has also been moved forward by 15mm to reduce ski lift.

Extrovert drive sprockets

Yamaha Apex X-TX

The modified drive wheel is combined with a longer track to deliver exceptional traction. To take advantage of the improved torque characteristics of the Genesis® engine, the extrovert drive has lugs on the sprocket wheel which act like a gear mechanism, meshing precisely with holes in the track, for positive grip and propulsion in all conditions.

Dual-switch grip heater control and large windshield

Yamaha Apex X-TX

Rider comfort is a priority, so the aerodynamic windshield protects you from wind and snow debris and a glove-friendly switch is provided on each handgrip to keep you warm – control the heat of the grip warmers with the left switch and the thumb warmer with the right switch. A quick push up for hotter – down for cooler.
