Yamaha is one of the market leaders in snowmobile manufacturing. Their snowmobiles come with engine specifications appropriate to a range of markets, including high performance race specification snowmobiles, such as the Nitro FX with in excess of 1,000cc, on the upper end of the scale, to the light 246cc Bravo LT.

Yamaha Vmax Engine Specifications

With 791cc, the top of the range Vmax-4 800 ST produces 1,500rpm when idle, 3,400 engagement rpms and 8,350 shift rpm. The Vmax 600 ST VX600S has a 598cc engine, with 1,600 idle rpm, but higher engagement rpm, at 3,600, meaning it is able to accelerate faster from standstill. It can produce up to 8,000 shift rpm.

Yamaha FX Nitro

The Yamaha FX Nitro has a four-stroke, three-cylinder, 1,049cc engine. The liquid-cooled engine is capable of producing between 1,450 to 1,550 of idle rpm, 3,750 engagement rpm, and 8,750 shift rpm. The FX Nitro uses a variable ratio YVXC transmission, and fuel delivery is accomplished by a 41mm Mikuni fuel injection system.

Yamaha Apex XTX

The Yamaha Apex XTX Cross Country snowmobile has a four-stroke, 998cc engine, with four cylinders. As with the Nitro, it uses a liquid-cooling system, and is capable of generating 1,500 idle rpm, 3,500 engagement rpm, and 10,500 shift rpm. The Apex XTX employs a YVXC transmission with variable ratio, and a magnesium chaincase and cover. Fuel delivery to the engine is accomplished by 39mm fuel injection.

The Yamaha Phazer MTX is part of Yamaha's Mountain range of snowmobiles, and contains a four-stroke, two-cylinder, 499cc engine capable of producing 1,700 idle rpm, 4,300 engagement rpm, and 11,300 shift rpm.
