    AVAILABLE SOON AT YOUR YAMAHA DEALER?

    Polaris has a turbo version of their RZR and Can-Am’s Maverick X3 is turbocharged as well. So, it’s reasonable to expect Yamaha to eventually offer up a turbo version of their YXZ1000R too. This makes sense, because they already sell a vehicle using the YXZ’s engine that is turbocharged.


    If you live in the northern climate, you probably have some knowledge of snowmobiles. Therefore, you’d be aware that some of the most popular models these days come from Yamaha’s Sidewinder line-up. These snowmobiles are powered by a 998cc, three-cylinder, four-stroke engine and all get an extra boost of horsepower from a turbocharger system..... click here to read more at

    Sounds great, but not too sure about those guys...

    The YXZ came out before the sidewinder, so how could they be speculating that it would be using a non-turbo version of the sidewinder motor? And since when does the YXZ make 155hp? Aftermarket turbo kits don't count. Nevermind the part about the intercooler circulating coolant around the throttle bodies....

    Hopefully they are right and Yamaha brings out a turbo YXZ, we all know the engine is ready, but are they?

    In our industry with the SW you would think its a no brainier but I agree with you, I think their facts are off.
