Genesis® 4-stroke Mid Performance engine
Set in a sturdy aluminium frame, this 1049cc DOHC, 3-Cylinder, 4-stroke combines great performance and durability with impressive acceleration across the RPM range. Calibrated for the demands of touring, the latest model features a new clutch setting for even smoother, more linear power delivery - and thus a more comfortable ride.
ProComfort® 151 rear suspension
Designed as the perfect rear suspension for passenger snowmobiles, the ProComfort® 151 delivers excellent ride comfort and consistent anti-bottoming performance for one rider or two. A clicker shock on the rear arm simplifies compression damping adjustments, while a flip-up rail makes off trail manoeuvres easier.
Revolutionary EPS (Electric Power Steering)
EPS means easier, more relaxed riding. A small electric actuator produces the optimum level of assistance for the speed and snow conditions, so the machine feels lighter and more stable during turns, with less ski lift. It also insulates the rider from kickback, making it easier to move the handlebars for more precise steering.
Comfortable and relaxing handlebar position
To optimise rider ergonomics, the handlebar has been set well forward. Analysis has shown that this extra space makes steering and balancing the machine far easier and contributes to the rider’s confidence and comfort.
Rider comfort - fully adjustable back rest
A simple lever release makes it easy to move the whole backrest forward or backward for solo or 2-up riding. The cushion can also be rotated for optimal personal comfort. The level-adjustable heated passenger hand grips have two height positions, to accommodate both large and small passengers.
Multi-function digital instrument panel
All essential ride data is displayed on a fully-featured digital gauge, displaying speed, RPM, grip heater level, dual trip meters and a clock. In addition, an oil trip readout tells you when it’s time for an oil change, while a fuel trip readout displays kilometres covered since the fuel warning light came on.
Integrated storage with hardtop
A spacious storage compartment with a hardtop lid is perfectly integrated into the sleek, stylish bodywork of the RSVenture TF. Its weather-resistant seal helps keep out snow dust and moisture - guarding your possessions against damage.
