Yamaha unveils VK540V snowmobile with new carburetors and other changes

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.
