Electric Power Steering (EPS)
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 High Output engine
The High Output engine delivers massive bottom-end power, its lightweight crank and fuel injection delivering instant throttle response across the RPM band. For the RSVector L-TX, the engine mapping has been carefully programmed to ensure smooth, linear throttle response and fuel economy for trail riding and long distance touring.
Camoplast® Ripsaw™ track with extrovert drive
The Camoplast® Ripsaw™ is acknowledged as the best all-round track for acceleration and cornering. The latest RSVector L-TX features extrovert drive sprockets that mesh precisely with holes in the track, acting like a gear mechanism to deliver new levels of grip and propulsion in all conditions.
Skis and 3rd generation front suspension
To gain maximum benefit from the unique Electric Power Steering (EPS) system, the RSVector L-TX is equipped with our 3rd generation front suspension and low-keel trail skis. The comfortable, soft-riding design, with its central keel, offers precise control on trails or powder. Ski lift is reduced by a longer trail configuration.
Mono Shock II CK 136 rear suspension
Unprecedented comfort and predictable, light handling are strengths of the new RSVector L-TX and the rear suspension set-up plays an important part. With its highly adjustable clicker shock, needle bearings, replaceable wheel bearings and adjustable limiter strap, it sets yet another benchmark for a crossover machine.
