Genesis® 3-cyl High Output 4-stroke engine

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

Bred for Snocross competition, the High Output engine delivers massive bottom-end power, its lightweight crank and fuel injection delivering instant throttle response across the RPM band. Other features include an oil pressure sensing system, side heat exchanger cooling and Yamaha’s Engine Braking Reduction System (E.B.R.S.).

Double wishbone front suspension geometry

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

Double wishbone, wide-stance front suspension offers more trail and relaxed caster. This gives the FXNytro M-TX greater bump handling on the trail - heading in and out - as well as on beat up climbs. Dispensing with a sway bar saves weight, while the snowmobile maintains excellent sidehilling performance and deep snow handling.

ProMountain® 162 Air rear suspension w/tip up rails

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

Heavy suspension springs are a thing of the past with ProMountain® Air rear suspension - the FXNytro M-TX is the industry’s first springless snowmobile. The skid, built in collaboration with Fox®, combines powder performance with light weight. The result: a sensitive, tunable suspension with great anti-bottoming.

Camoplast® Ascent track

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

The Camoplast® Ascent track design delivers outstanding performance in hill climbs and on fresh or deep snow. New sprockets reduce running noise and vibration for more comfortable riding. An updated lug design and new construction ensure powerful acceleration in all kinds of riding conditions.

Fox® FLOAT™ 2 XV rear shock

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

The ProMountain® Air rear suspension uses a Fox® FLOAT™ 2 XV shock on its rear arm. This shock features an external air chamber that provides additional air spring capability, making it possible to eliminate the need for heavy steel torsion springs. This industry-leading air shock is a result of close collaboration with Fox®.

Fox® FLOAT™ 2 air front shocks

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

Fox® FLOAT™ 2 shocks use an air spring that forces the piston to rebound - eliminating the need for heavy steel coil springs. So compared to conventional springs, they are significantly lighter. A pocket-sized air pump is supplied, allowing you to tune each spring individually and set up the suspension according to your personal preferences.

18° track approach angle

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

With ProMountain® Air rear suspension, you reap the benefits of an 18° track approach angle - getting your snowmobile on top of the snow quickly, for exceptional deep snow action. The efficiency of the design also results in higher track speeds, on a par with the FXNytro M-TX’s hill climbing prowess.

Tall, wide, hooked handlebar

Yamaha FXNytro MTX 162

The chassis design puts the rider naturally into an aggressive, yet comfortable forward posture - and a single-piece, dual-hooked handlebar complements this position. For consistent control, the hooks and main bar section are of the same grip material. The new high quality grab strap is perfect for mountain riders – great for sidehilling too.
