The Yamaha snowmobile sled line-up for 2007 features all 4-stroke snow machines, consistent with its product line since 2003. Snocross rules for the 2007 snowmobile racing season have expanded the Open classes to allow inline, three-cylinder, four-stroke powered sleds up to 1050 cc. Robbie Malinoski, WPSA champion in both 2006 Pro Open and Pro Stock classes, will be the main driver on Yamaha’s new 2007 race team. The 2006 Japanese National Snocross Champion, Yuji Nakazawa, will also join the Yamaha factory team. Yamaha stopped sponsoring a snocross factory team in the 2001-2002 season, so this marks a return of a full field of brands in snocross racing.
The 2007 Yamaha Apex GT features good gas economy, comfortable rider forward ride, raised seat, hooked-end handlebar, precision control suspension, and electronic fuel injection.
Jimmy Blaze, snowmobile freestyle champion, rides a Yamaha Phazer FX. The Phazer FX weighs in at a final production weight of 487 pounds. Built for performance, durability, and handling, it looks like a winner for 2007.
Yamaha says the Yamaha Phazer GT reinvents the trail ride with light-weight and heavy value. The Phazer uses aluminum-bodied shocks, full wind deflecting windshield and knee deflectors on its open styling for trail comfort.
The Yamaha Venture line takes two-up performance and economy to create the family sled that should be hot in 2007. The rip saw track is a plus, along with standard features like reverse, passenger handlebar warmers, and a cargo rack.
The Yamaha Nytro maintains the traditional styling of its previous successful seasons, with its 120 hp liquid cooled engine.
