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?

Spacious rear deck and cargo rack
The spacious rear deck and cargo rack that is such a feature of the Venture Multi Purpose means you can carry skis, snowboards, protective clothing or other cargo securely. The removable passenger seat allows you to take even more cargo on solo trips.
Wide VK-type skis
Wide VK-type plastic skis help keep the front end of the snowmobile up when travelling through deep snow, so you won’t get bogged down. Combined with a specially engineered front suspension package, with lightweight extruded aluminium spindles, the Venture Multi Purpose glides over fresh powder or hard pack.
For additional comfort on long rides, the tall windshield features a deflector lip that protects both rider and passenger from wind and snow. Securely affixed to the chassis, this tough screen offers consistent protection in all conditions.
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.
Sport rider-forward position
The Venture Multi Purpose offers a sporty, rider-forward position inspired by other off-road motorsports. It has a riser handlebar shape that is curved for all-day riding in comfort. The rider-forward seating position effectively isolates you from the bumps, making it easy to ride on for longer.
