2013 Yamaha Venture Multi Purpose

Its name alone should give you an idea on what the Venture Multi Purpose is capable of. It’s flexible and steady, and along with a substantial rear deck and cargo rack, this is the kind of ideal machine that makes hauling loads across any snow, any time whether hard pack, powder or rough trail, an easy exercise.

And with the help of a removable passenger seat, you can choose to ride 2-up in comfort or create even more cargo space.

Furthermore, the snowmobile also comes with a 406mm semi-wide track, one that will bring traction in even the deepest snow while the wide floatation skis are prepared to drift easily over almost any surface. When it’s perfect for long and tough trips, the ProComfort 144 rear suspension soaks up the bumps for a smooth ride.

Suffice to say, the Venture Multi-Purpose is all it says it is. Versatile, powerful, and rugged. Really, what’s not to love?
