Now that winter is fast approaching, snowmobiles are starting to become en vogue again. So what better way to spend your upcoming bonuses than to splurge on a snowmobile that offers you fun times streaking in the snow.
That’s where the Yamaha Venture Lite comes in. Powered by the Sport Performance Genesis 2-cylinder engine, the Venture Lite offers silky smooth power that can be best enjoyed as a solo rider or with a passenger on board.
More than just its impressive powertrain, the Venture Lite also comes packed with plenty of amenities. It’s got a tall windshield, heated passenger grips, and a cargo rack, among other things, providing you with plenty of bang for your hard-earned buck. The seat was designed to be comfortable for more than just one rider and comes with a forward front pilot configuration that allows excellent positioning when you’re sitting upright and ready to roll. There’s also a raised lip at the back to help keep you stationed properly while a slightly elevated passenger level that tapers slightly into a winged backrest. A passenger footrest platform and handgrips are also part of the package, as is a digital gauge that sits centered so you quickly can read the large digital numerals as they flash your miles per hour.
Going back to the snowmobile’s Sport Performance Genesis 2-cylinder engine, it’s not so much the power that makes the Venture Lite stand out. Relative to it’s size, the snowmobile’s modern high-revving 4-stroke engine delivers upwards of 30 percent more power than its competition while also boasting of a sophisticated electronic fuel injection system. To ensure superior handling, the Venture Lite was also fitted with quite basic KYB gas cell shock absorbers, and a rear suspension that features a simple flip lever to vary torsion spring rates for enhancing ride comfort.
