On March 2, Yamaha began taking orders for three 2017 snowmobile models including the VK540V, which has undergone some changes to its engine and exterior. The snowmobiles are set for a November 1 release.
The VK540V is a Yamaha snowmobile with a variety of uses that focuses on business use. For the 2017 models, changes have been made to the air release valve and ignition, including new carburetors, to give the 2-stroke engine better fuel economy and purer emissions. There are also improvements to the performance and functionality for business use such as a 44L capacity fuel tank, functional yet stylish body cowling and wind screen, and a flat-type seat for better riding comfort.
The price for the VK540V is 1,153,440 yen.
Sales of the VK Professional II and Venture Multi-Purpose are set to continue from last year.
