The 1049cc triple 4‑stroke engine fills a need for executing a wide range of tasks.
Genesis 1049cc 4-Stroke Engine
Designed to be the premiere trail cruising power plant, the three cylinder engine features an advanced Yamaha fuel-injection system for incredibly accurate fuel metering for spot on performance and fuel sipping economy. A broad, flat power-band delivers instant thrust from nearly any speed, and hundreds of thousands of miles by satisfied owners is testament to its durability.
Featuring Yamaha drive and driven clutching, the YVXC system delivers smooth engagement, instant acceleration, fast reacting backshift, and cool operating temperatures for a long belt life. The YVXC clutch system delivers Yamaha’s hallmark smooth power delivery, responsive engine feel and unmatched quality.
Engine Braking Reduction System
Yamaha utilizes an engine braking reduction system for a “free-wheel” feeling on deceleration. The system allows a small amount of air to flow through the intake system upon throttle release, thereby dramatically reducing the engine braking effect typically association
with a four-stroke engine.
HPG Coil-Over Front Shocks
High Pressure Gas (HPG) shocks with strong 40mm bodies are calibrated to deliver consistent performance and comfort with excellent fade resistance. Plus the shocks are rebuildable, ensuring you season after season of consistent performance with proper maintenance.
RipSaw™ II Track
Regarded as the best high-performance terrain track available, the 151 x 1.25" lug design of the RipSaw™ II delivers incredible acceleration, braking control, and handling in a wide variety of conditions.
Third Generation Front Suspension
The sophisticated and precise design of the front suspension incorporates a motion geometry specifically calibrated to eliminate unwanted inside ski lift while cornering. The dual A-arm system is both precise and remarkably predictable for confidence inspiring
performance in nearly any terrain.
HPG Rear Shocks
Premium High Pressure Gas shocks are found at both the front and rear arms of the rear suspension - tuned for premium control and comfort with incredible fade resistance. The shocks are also serviceable, allowing your authorized Yamaha dealer to recharge and refresh them for consistent performance season after season.
Pro Comfort 151 Rear Suspension
The dual shock, coupled rear suspension is specifically tuned for all day comfort. A unique articulated rear rail delivers additional passenger comfort in rough terrain while also making it easier to back-up in soft snow conditions.
Wide Hooked End Handlebars
Yamaha bars are flat and wide, engineered for comfort, control, and natural ergonomics. Integrated hooked ends add additional control options while cornering, and feature heated grips across that span the entire length.
Standard Electric Start And Reverse
Seamless and easy to use electric start delivers instant and hassle free starts, no matter the weather, eliminating the need for an “old-school” pull rope. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of an effective and simple to use reverse system, includes a helpful alert beeper so you always know when reverse is engaged.
The high-intensity LED taillight/brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design, and delivers a significantly longer lifespan.
Standard Tow Hitch
In addition to a host of on-board creature comforts and storage, a standard factory rear mounted tab-type tow hitch is at the ready for additional gear or occasional light-duty hauling.
