Yamaha doesn’t make changes just for the sake of doing so. When Yamaha makes changes, they are doing it because they have found something better to offer then what’s already out. For the 2012 Yamaha RS Venture GT, that involves taking the snowmobile’s overall characteristics up a few notches higher.
The new Venture GT is about as comfortable and user-friendly as any snowmobile in the market. On top of that, it’s got some serious performance capabilities too, the highlight of which is the 1,049cc four-stroke, three-cylinder, twin-valve, liquid-cooled engine. With 120 horsepower on tap, the RS Venture GT represents an attractive snowmobile option for performance-minded riders who also demand no less than the ultimate in comfort.
Further adding to the appeal of the RS Venture GT is a suspension set-up that features the company’s new wishbone design front suspension that sets the A-arms more closely together. Yamaha engineers also use high-pressure gas shocks to control the GT’s 8.5" of maximum travel, which is actually a half-inch less than with last season’s non-EPS front end.
For everything that people have said about the Yamaha RS Venture GT, the biggest thing about this snowmobile is that it comes at a pretty reasonable price of just $12,699.

Yamaha’s Venture line of snowmobiles are known in the industry for being one of the most popular models in the market today. It can be used for a variety of purposes and its versatility is one of the reasons why the Venture is so popular.
The Yamaha RS Venture comes with natural black colors that mean serious business, but if you’re not a fan of black, you can also choose your favorite color to dress up your snowmobile. The snowmobile also offers spacious accommodations for both the rider and the passenger, featuring raised passenger seating and a plush adjustable backrest. Hand warmers with individual settings for driver and passenger are also part of the package.
The Yamaha RS Venture is powered by an impressive 4-stroke Genesis 973cc engine that works well on a variety of conditions. It doesn’t boast the all-world performance of the more powerful Nytro model, but it does give you the comforts of rider-friendliness usually associated with the Venture line, while also treating you to substantial amounts of power and smoother instant on-starting EFI technology. The throttle of the RS Venture is ultra-responsive, providing the kind of smooth ride that riders always look for in a snowmobile.
The 2012 Venture also offers a rigid chassis that comes courtesy of Yamaha engineering’s Deltabox frame. This chassis was constructed to accept the mid-performance character of this Genesis engine. The front and rear suspensions work with the chassis to provide smooth travel over various quality trails while the double A-arm front end works with 36mm high pressure shocks to control upwards of nine-inches of travel. Meanwhile, the ProComfort rear suspension gives the rider and passenger upwards of 12.4-inches of on-trail bump absorption from the gas shock controlled parallel skid rail.
