2017 Yamaha Phazer R-TX


Phazer R-TX



Show us another 500cc four-stroke that makes the power of the Phazer and we'll show you a liar. Quite simply, for performance and reliability in an affordable package, the Phazer R-TX is your choice. Fox FLOAT front shocks, upright seating position and a high revving power curve give you one of the most fun sleds on snow.

  • Yamaha Genesis High Performance Engine: 2 Cylinder, 499cc, Yamaha YXRC clutch, 43mm fuel-injection, 7 gal (26.7L) fuel capacity
  • Fox Float Front Suspension: Performance-tuned, Air resistance, Quick pump adjustment
  • Dual Shock CK Rear Skid: 121", Camoplast Ripsaw, Aluminum high pressure gas shock
Key Features
  • Free-Revving Power: Lightweight, dependable and fun, the Genesis 80FI's high tech design puts down 80 horsepower performance on the trail and off. This 2-cylinder engine is quick-revving and very torquey for sporty acceleration. The advanced fuel injection system automatically keeps it running at maximum output and fuel efficiency for the conditions.
  • Keep the Weight Down: Even with standard electric start, Phazer is one of the lightest liquid-cooled snowmobiles on the planet, did we mention quick and responsive?
  • Rider Forward Ergonomics: The tall, narrow seat and tall, forward handlebar design is mimicked from our popular YZ dirtbike, putting you in a pure sport posture without being overly aggressive.
  • Double Wishbone Front Suspension: Phazer's double-wishbone independent front suspension maximizes big bump control without sacrificing tight cornering agility.
  • Suspension: The R-TX's Dual Shock CK rear suspension uses a performance-tuned remote reservoir clicker shock to let you fine-tune the calibration to your liking.
  • Fox® Float Air Front Shocks: The Phazer R-TX comes with Fox® Float™ Shocks up front. Contained in a lightweight aluminum body, a nitrogen-charged internal floating piston works with the air spring to reduce weight and shock fade in the roughest conditions. They cut three pounds per sled, as compared to traditional coil over springs. They are individually tunable by using a pocket-sized air pump, which comes with the sled.
  • Lcd Gauges: Large read-at-a-glance gauge cluster monitors speed and engine performance. Multi-functional design shows hand and thumb warmer settings as well.
  • 14x121x1 Inch Camoplast® Track: The Phazer RTX uses a 14-inch wide Camoplast® Rip Saw® track with 1-inch lugs. This track design is lighter than a traditional 15-inch design for performance and handling. It also allows the tunnel to be narrower to contribute to each sled's ergonomics.
  • Tuner Skis: The addition of Yamaha's acclaimed Tuner Dual Keel skis greatly reduce darting and offer a wide range of carbide set-up options, from mild to aggressive pattern.
