* Genesis 130FI 4-stroke engine
The over-achieving Genesis 130FI engine is the heart of our lightweight, high performance and aggressive FX Nytro model family. It has dominated its class at the Old Forge Shoot-Out 2 years
straight, claiming top speed twice and posting the best average ET over 4 runs down the ?-mile track. The advanced fuel injection keeps the 3-cylinder engine running at maximum 130 horsepower-class
* Advanced fuel injection
The Genesis 130FI uses Yamahas advanced fuel injection system to control fuel flow to the engine. Consumers will enjoy the engines spot-on performance and throttle response as a result of
the advanced electronic fuel injection system.
* Engine Braking Reduction System
The Genesis 130FI features the unique Engine Braking Reduction System. The system allows a small amount of air to pass through the fuel injection system when the throttle is released, giving
riders a coast feeling.
* Lightweight rear-exiting exhaust
The patented rear exit design serves many performance-enhancing functions on the FX Nytro RTX. First, it maximizes horsepower by using a straight exhaust pipe design. Second, it reduces the
amount of under-hood heat produced. Third, the rear-exiting design distributes weight to contribute to the excellent balance of the sled.
* Forced air radiator ducting
The FX Nytro RTXs airflow design pulls fresh air in from around the headlight and forces it through the radiator fins for high cooling capacity, resulting in consistent engine performance
even in low-snow conditions.
* 15x121x1.25-inch Camoplast Rip Saw track
The Camoplast Rip Saw track is a standard feature on the FX Nytro RTX. It has been widely acclaimed in the industry as the best all-around OEM track for acceleration, cornering bite and
everyday trail usage. The Rip Saw track development is the result of a collaborative effort between Yamaha and Camoplast.
* FXG2 front suspension geometry
The FX Nytro RTX features the acclaimed FXG2 front suspension with more trail and relaxed caster for crisp steering response and confidence-inspiring, flat handling in the corners and
through the rough trail.
* FX chassis with sport rider-forward position
The compact design puts the engine down low and back in the chassis, leaving the top of the cab open for airflow. This gives the FX Nytro RTX a very centralized mass. The FX Nytro RTXs sport
rider-forward ergonomic design puts the rider in an aggressive, yet comfortable, forward posture.
* Over-the-engine steering
The snocross-proven over-the-engine steering configuration gives the rider excellent posture on the sled. It also allows the engine to be tucked deep into the chassis for optimum balance and
* Tall, hooked bars
To match the tall and forward position, a single-piece, dual-hooked handlebar is standard fare on the FX Nytro RTX. The hooks have the same grip material as the main bar section, for
consistent control, regardless of hand position on the grip.
* Composite upper skeleton
The headlight assembly and upper portion of the FX Nytro RTX is supported by a super-lightweight composite framework. By using a rugged, high tech composite material as the structure for the
top portion of the sled, Yamaha engineers were able to keep the mass centered low and deep in the chassis.
* Lightweight tunnel
The FX Nytro RTX features a lightweight tunnel design. With the runningboards tipped up at an aggressive 11-degree angle, the FX Nytro RTX delivers big ground clearance for rough trail
capability. The new design also features large snow evacuation and boot gripper punch outs. The lightweight tunnel was developed on the Pro Open snocross race sled.
* Dual Shock Pro rear suspension
The race-proven Dual Shock Pro rear suspension is the culmination of four years of development, testing, racing and redevelopment to produce the ultimate big bump rear suspension. Stacked
with a pair of rugged C40 R16 shocks, the FX Nytro RTXs rear suspension is engineered to handle the deep pits and big moguls youll find in the ditches and trails with 14 inches of vertical travel.
The 2010 model has been recalibrated for a very comfortable ride over small chatter bumps with excellent anti-bottoming performance on the big bumps.
* Fox FLOAT shocks
Fox FLOAT shocks use an air spring designed to force the piston to rebound. This eliminates the need for steel coil springs. They cut three pounds off the sleds overall weight, as compared
to traditional coil over springs. They are individually tunable by using a pocket-sized air pump, which comes with the sled, so consumers will be able to set the front suspension up to their
* 40mm dual-clicker shocks
The Dual Shock Pro suspension is fitted with a pair of 40mm shocks with remote reservoirs and compression and rebound clickers. The shocks 16mm rod is ultra rugged for rough trail usage.
Consumers will be able to set their suspensions up to their specific tastes.
* Wheels with removable bearings
The newly designed wheels make the ride smooth and make maintenance easy. Now when the bearings need to be replaced you dont have to purchase a whole new wheel, just remove the old bearings
and insert the new ones. The wheels also include a new spoke design and a rubber rim that make for a comfortable riding experience. This new design will be implemented on the rear large wheels as
well as the internal smaller wheels.
* Sculpted narrow seat
The FX Nytro RTX has a narrow seat for comfort. In addition to putting the rider in a tall, forward, attack posture, the seats height makes it plush and comfortable for a full day of riding.
The narrow seat sits atop the beveled tunnel, which allows the track to be a traditional 15 inches wide, to maximize traction.
* New grip warmers
The FX Nytro RTX receives new, redesigned grip warmers for 2010. These new grip warmers deliver a more concentrated heat source rather than spreading the warmth out. The result is a much
warmer grip for your hands most comfortable riding position. In addition, an insulator has been inserted between the heating element and handlebar to retain heat longer and more efficiently.
* Digital gauge
The digital gauge displays key information at a glance. Vehicle speed is displayed on a large LCD readout. In addition, the rider can select tachometer, odometer or tripmeter data to appear
on the secondary readout. The gauge also displays system warning lights, fuel level and warmer intensity.
* Quick-release, single-piece hood/console shroud
The FX Nytro RTX has a single-piece hood and console shroud. The design allows owners to open and close the top portion of the sled easily with Dzus quick-connect fasteners.
* New graphic packages
The FX Nytro RTX comes in two graphic packages; orange/black as well as Yamaha black. These awesome designs produce one of the best looking sleds on the snow.
