For 2018, Yamaha has revised the industry shaking Sidewinder M-TX model with a new drop rolled chaincase and tunnel to better appeal to big mountain riders. The Sidewinder M-TX LE 162 50th boasts a high impact retro red and white paint scheme and is outfitted with premium FOX® Float® QS3 suspension, making it right at home slashing and carving its way through unspoiled wilderness.NEW DROP ROLLED CHAINCASE AND TUNNEL
Features may include:PERFORMANCE
The Nickel alloy turbine body is extremely strong and precise, able to withstand highly elevated temperatures. Supported by premium, ceramic ball bearings, the Inconel turbine blade assembly is very light and strong. This yields a low moment of inertia for lightning quick response to exhaust gas input. Turbo charging also maintains maximum horsepower regardless of elevation unlike non-turbo engines which can loose up to 40% of their horsepower on top of the mountain.
The Yamaha-developed Mitsubishi ECU uses a series of 9 sensors to gather running condition data which it computes using a predetermined memory map. It then adjusts ignition timing, fuel delivery, manifold air-pressure and turbo boost pressure to produce maximum performance under any condition - reliably.HANDLING
The sleek SRV-M Front Suspension is ultra compact to reduce unwanted spindle and suspension component drag in deep snow. The narrow stance allows for extreme maneuverability and delivers aggressive lean angles for incredible side-hilling and powder turn capabilities. The lightweight, forged aluminum spindles join the widely spaced upper and lower control arms producing a large caster angle for tight side-hilling and ease of steering. The clean, narrow overall stance and elimination of the sway bar also greatly enhances deep snow agility.
The updated SRV-M chassis combines a load-bearing triangulated structure with lightweight aluminum construction to create a neutrally balanced sled that's centered on the rider. The pyramidal upper frame creates chassis strength without excessive weight.
