could yamaha build a new all yamaha sled in the future or is he pointing to a 200hp wildcat?


.....Something occurred to me while discussing this meetings agenda with our engineers. Most people, regardless of their brand blindness, will recognize that Yamaha engines rank amongst the very best in the world. This is especially true regarding durability and reliability and if you consider the QDR relative to the performance, one could argue Yamaha is the best in mass production motosports power – marine, motorcycle, off-road, snow… My epiphany was – we have never tried to explain what we do different, what steps are taken in engine development, to deliver the balance of performance and reliability that the Yamaha reputation is founded upon. We’ve spoken to it in marketing over the years but the engineering detail has never been really been exposed. I sense an opportunity and an intriguing project at hand.

Case in point is the all new R1 and M1 MotoGP inspired bikes. @200hp / liter of normally aspirated power packing a full warranty and duty cycle of a flippin Corolla. The on-board electronics controlling this engine and consequent power delivery is incredible. I have mixed feelings about having a computer control how I ride but considering the performance levels being achieved and so few Valentino Rossi’s, I get it.

We are seeing more sophisticated electronics being applied to our snowmobiles as well and I see this only increasing as we move forward. Having learned from my past ramblings allow me to say this ‘just for the record’ – I did not say that the new R1 engine will be available in a snowmobile next year, an ATV maybe but not a sled!

They appear to last cause old touring type riders use em for sleds...check any yamaha racing machines and they break as much if not more than the other motor makers....

It's not the engines that Yamaha uses in their snowmachines that people don't like-they make great motors. It is the 800 lbs. of polished crap they surround them with!

Yamaha claims its engines are the best made on the planet.

Obama says he's the best president

I'm understanding how correct Jonathan Gruber is.
