Genesis® 4-stroke Sport Performance engine
The Genesis® engine is lightweight yet torquey, for quick acceleration. The counterbalanced, lightweight crankshaft helps yield snappy throttle response and smooth running. And whatever the conditions, the fuel injection and digital ignition systems maintain the optimum fuel/air mix to keep your engine running at peak performance.
ProMountain® 144 rear suspension
ProMountain® is the natural choice of those who make a habit of playing in deep powder – a low angle of attack gets the snowmobile on the plane quickly, for smooth floatation. Over-sized carrier wheels on the rear upper cross shaft improve efficiency and reduce friction, while the cantilevered mount system keeps track tension consistent.
Full mountain ergonomics
The Phazer M-TX is built for mountain riding. Its chassis is constructed from CF die-cast aluminium, which reduces weight and increases durability, while the enclosed narrow tunnel reduces snow and ice build-up. A narrow seat, wide running boards and hooked handlebars with mountain strap, help you stay in the perfect position for full control.
Wide running boards with great grip
With its great handling, the Phazer M-TX is all about mountain fun. The wide running boards are thoughtfully designed, so that wherever you place your feet, you can be confident of great grip. This frees you to move around on the machine – and really enjoy the full fun of such a lightweight, well balanced snowmobile.
Multi-function digital instrument panel
The multi-function digital gauge displays key information at a glance. Speed is displayed on a large LCD readout and the rider can select tachometer, odometer or tripmeter data to appear on the secondary readout. The gauge also displays system warning lights, fuel level, and grip warmer intensity.
Sporty rider-forward ergonomics
The design of the Phazer was influenced by Yamaha’s huge success and experience in off-road motorsports. Its tall, narrow seat and tall, forward handlebars were inspired by the popular YZ motocross bike. They put the rider naturally into a pure sports posture and locate mass at the perfect balance point for the snowmobile, enhancing handling.
Adjustable-width double wishbone front suspension
To accommodate its unique weight distribution and handling needs, the Phazer M-TX’s naked front-end design requires a specially engineered front suspension package. It features long A-arms and lightweight extruded aluminium spindles.
Electric start and push-button reverse
You can rely on the Phazer MT-X to fire up with a single turn of the key. Since the engine’s decompression system means it requires less power to turn the engine over, a smaller and lighter battery can be used. A single push-button,handily placed on the right hand side of the instrument panel engages the Electric Shift Reverse system.
