    • High Performance Genesis 4-stroke engine
      The over-achieving Genesis® engine is the heart of our lightweight and aggressive SRViper model family. It pulls consistently hard from takeoff to top end. Your thumb cracks a trio of 41mm throttle bodies that deliver strong performance from idle to wide open.
    • Fuel injection
      The Genesis High Performance engine uses Yamaha's advanced fuel injection system to control fuel flow to the engine. Consumers will enjoy the engine's spot-on performance and throttle response as a result of the advanced electronic fuel injection system.
    • Engine braking reduction system
      The Genesis High Performance engine 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.
    • Legendary Yamaha Clutching
      The SRViper M-TX 153 uses the legendary Yamaha YVXC clutching. Easily the most reliable and durable clutch system in the industry, the YVXC has evolved to efficiently handle the unique power characteristics of the Genesis 4-stroke engine.
    • Multi-purpose magnesium chaincase
      The SRViper M-TX 153's chain case and cover serve as both a mounting point for chassis spars and the engine's oil reservoir. Lightweight magnesium construction minimizes weight.
    • High performance Hayes Brake system
      The SRViper M-TX 153's high performance Hayes brake system delivers stopping power with a large-diameter, 8-inch rotor. Mounted low on the drive shaft, you feel immediate whoa-power with a quick stab of the brake.

The hydraulic brake's race-inspired radial master cylinder design gives you excellent leverage when needed, with precise brake feel and control.

  • 15 x 162 x 2.6-inch Power Claw track
    If deep snow capability is critical to you, then the M-TX 162's Power Claw track is an important feature. The 2.6" lug can move a lot of snow, and its floatation ability is nothing short of phenomenal. The durable, yet lightweight design offers performance and efficiency. For riders who are serious about their deep snow riding, the Power Claw is the ace up your sleeve.


  • SRV-M Front End
    The new 34.5 - 38.5" adjustable ski stance SRV-M front suspension is ready for the deep snow. No sway bar and the narrowest stance in the lineup. Super agile, easy to pull up on a sidehill and the skinniy stance allows the sled to panel out for easy maneuvering.
  • Lightweight, rigid SRV chassis
    The SRV chassis combines a load-bearing triangulated structure with lightweight aluminum construction to create a neutrally balanced sled that centered on the rider. The pyramidal upper frame creates chassis strength without excessive weight.
  • Centralized mass design
    The SRV chassis layout was engineered with the goal of centralizing mass. Approximately 60 percent of the sled's weight is tightly centered within the main triangulation. The result is a quick-handling sled that's fun in a wide variety of conditions.
  • Side exit exhaust
    The exhaust exits out the belly on the SRVipers. The unique chassis layout allows the exhaust to exit the back of the engine, have the 3-into-1 manifold cooled by snow kicked up through a hole in the tunnel and then bring the pipe back to the muffler in a traditional configuration. The end result is mass centralization, excellent handling and consistent performance.
  • Over-the-engine steering
    The straight steering post on the SRViper M-TX 162 is configured over the engine. It connects to a single bell crank for simplicity and light weight. The design also minimizes freeplay in the steering system and delivers a tight turning radius.
  • Plastic mountain ski
    The SRViper M-TX 162's redesigned plastic mountain skis offer extra width for excellent powder handling characteristics. The unique arched fin design of the ski also deflects snow away from the sled and the rider. The mountain ski also features traction grippers molded into the tops.
  • Tall, hooked handlebars with center strap
    To match the SRViper M-TX 162's tall and forward riding position, a single-piece, dual-hooked handlebar is standard fare on. The hooks have the same grip material as the main bar section, for consistent control, regardless of hand position on the grip. The M-TX 162 also sports a tough center grab strap for additional leverage options in deep snow.


    • Comfort-tuned HPG shock package
      The SRViper M-TX 162 is calibrated for all-day comfort and big time deep snow adventures. Coil springs over the rebuildable, comfort-tuned HPG shocks add a smoothing action, whether your launching up an incline or playing in the trees.
    • Dual Shock SR 162 rear suspension
      The SRViper M-TX 162's high pressure gas shocks take your punishment with fade-resistant action over the bumps or when you want to challenge the terrain.

With a half-inch to slide freely under acceleration and deceleration, thanks to a unique front arm slotted mount design, the Dual Shock SR suspension keeps the track planted for maximum grip under full throttle or full braking. The rear axle features a conjoined rear wheelset. The ingenious design is lighter, more durable and more rigid than most traditional rear axle wheels.

  • Tapered tunnel design
    The SRViper M-TX 162's two-piece, tapered tunnel gives you strength for the long haul and a tapered "fit" for enhanced leg comfort and overall ride positioning.
  • Large fuel tank
    The SRViper M-TX 162's generous 37-litre fuel tank combines with the Genesis engine's acknowledged fuel efficiency to keep you going longer. The M-TX 162's efficient design philosophy means that even the fuel tank serves multiple functions. Not only does it carry gas for a long day, but it also cradles the battery and is the platform for the quick-release trail seat.
  • Tall, sculpted seat
    The seat foam on the SRViper M-TX 162 is anatomically designed to comfortably put the rider in an aggressive posture with easy transitions from seated to standing to leaning into a corner.
  • Digital gauge
    Full-featured and easy to read, the digital gauge displays critical information in a glance including speed, fuel level, trip mileage, tach and more. We even included a clock so you can watch the time fly.
  • Push button reverse
    Convenient handlebar positioning makes getting in reverse easy with just the push of your thumb. A servo motor shifts the drivetrain into reverse simply and consistently.
  • Standard electric start
    Yamaha's electric starter system allows consumers to fire up their SRViper M-TX 162 with the turn of a key. There is no pulling on a nylon cord to get this high-tech engine growling! Electric start is a standard feature on all of Yamaha's 4-stroke machines.
