Consider the Yamaha FX Nytro RTX SE to be “the best of the best” when it comes to buying your very own Yamaha snocross sled. This is as close as you can get to what Yamaha factory riders run on the race track, and only a very few lucky souls will be romping on one of these studs this winter.
This racer-replica sports many differences from the FX Nytro RTX that mere mortals will be riding. Most noticeable are the Fox FLOAT-X front shocks that have a new high-rate negative spring that allows the shock to run high air pressures in the main chamber for excellent roll control without compromising ride height, small bump compliance or traction. Matching the front is the race-proven Dual Shock Pro 46 rear suspension, built with competition-spec reinforced arms and rails. There’s a new 46mm three-way clicker shock (hi and low speed compression) on the rear arm and a two-way clicker shock on the front arm for ultimate adjustability. This sled is calibrated for the extremely aggressive rider – sit down types need not apply.
The FX Nytro RTX SE also features a different tunnel design, developed on the Pro Open snocross race sled. The running boards tipped up at an aggressive 11-degree angle, providing more ground clearance for added rough terrain capability. The new design also features large snow evacuation and boot gripper punch outs.
The 2009 Yamaha FX Nytro RTX SE retails for $11,299 (which includes $4,200 of added features) in Yamaha Factory Race Blue.
