The Yamaha FXNystro MTX is the rebel member of the Yamaha snowmobile family. Its dynamic design language, the perfect ergonomics and the powerful engine are all working together to reward you with a boost of adrenaline every time you jump on the saddle.
Power comes from a capable 4 Stroke, 1,049cc, 3-Cylinder, liquid cooled engine which puts out enough torque and power to help you deal effortless with any type of snow.
In its wild adventures, the FXNytro MTX 162 is also helped by the ProMountain Air rear suspension, an 18° track approach angle and a pair of lightweight Fox FLOAT 2 shocks. You also get the Camoplast Ascent track design which delivers first class performance in hill climbs and on fresh or deep snow.

Genesis® 3-cyl High Output 4-stroke engine
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
