Yamaha special-edition sled comes with deep-lug kit


Yamaha Motor Corp. USA announces a 2012 FX Nytro XTX kitted with a Camoplast Backcountry 15x144x1.75-inch track. The company says there will be a “very limited” number of units available to consumers near the end of December.

“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. 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,” Powers adds. “This sled is easily the most versatile model we have in the lineup.”
