Deep-Lug “Kit Sled” adds performance and versatility
Pleasant Prairie, WI – Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA has announced the release of a 2012 model year FX Nytro XTX fitted with a Camoplast Backcountry 1.75-inch lug height track. “We are excited to bring this special sled to market just in time for the season,” said Yamaha Snowmobile Product Manager Rob Powers.
“I had the opportunity to personally put this model through its paces last winter,” Powers continued. “I thought it was awesome on the trail, with great traction for accelerating but it also had just enough side slip to let the sled corner well. The deeper lugs also give this Nytro XTX better deep snow performance than the original 1.25-inch model. This sled is easily the most versatile model we have in the lineup.”
The FX Nytro is designed for stand-up agility and maneuverability, making it well suited for this configuration. The 144” track length positions it in-between traditional mountain sleds and crossover sleds, allowing it to perform well in deep snow and off-trail environments everywhere.
There will be a very limited number of units available to consumers near the end of December, 2011 with a retail price of $11,599.
