2007 Nytro

  • 3-cylinder Genesis 120™ engine
    The Genesis 120 engine is compact and lightweight. Its long stroke and four-valve design produces a tremendous amount of torque for cornerto-corner acceleration on the trail. The broad torque curve is easy for clutch tuners to hit and allows riders to have instant power after backshifting. The three-cylinder engine debuted in 2005.
  • Gearing and clutching
    The Nytro® models are designed to be ditch bangers and mogul play sleds, not lake runners. As such, they are clutched and geared for quick response and hard launches. If high top speeds are desired, this is not the right model.
  • Camoplast Rip Saw track
    The Camoplast Rip Saw track is a standard feature on the Nytro. 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 is the result of a collaborative effort between Yamaha and Camoplast.
  • Rear-exiting exhaust
    The exhaust is routed out the back of the sled in order to optimize and maximize airflow through the engine. The tuned system is specifically engineered to produce the Genesis 120’s broad powerband and also to help keep the sled in balance.
  • Lightweight hydraulic brake system
    The lightweight 4-piston brake system delivers solid stopping power without fading, even in high-use applications. It also incorporates a lightweight, double-finned, self-cooling brake disc.
  • Lightweight forged pistons
    The forged pistons used in the Genesis 120 engine are engineered for light weight and still allow high compression rates of 11.3:1 on 87 Octane gas. The piston design came out with the Genesis 120 engine on the Vector™-class sleds.

  • Handling

  • Second generation front suspension geometry
    The geometry of the second generation front suspension features short spindles and long A-arms. The suspension was engineered to deliver excellent cornering stability and consistent turning effort throughout its travel stroke. It delivers 9 inches of vertical travel and sets the skis at 42.7 inches. Steering is consistent, because the spindles are maintained at a constant 23 degrees.

  • Fox FLOAT front shocks
    Fox FLOAT shocks use an air spring design to force the piston to rebound. This eliminates the need for steel coil springs. They cut three pounds per shock, as compared to traditional coil over springs. They are individually tunable by using a pocket-sized air pump, which comes with the sled.
  • Magnesium valve, crankcase and oil pump covers
    Yamaha incorporated liberal usage of ultra-lightweight magnesium material wherever possible to reduce weight on engine componentry. The use of magnesium became widespread on all Genesis-class engines.
  • Ultra-rigid Deltabox™ chassis
    The Deltabox chassis is designed specifically to house the Genesis engine family. It supports the engine and utilizes it in forming one of the most rigid chassis on the market. The more rigid the chassis, the more consistent the sled will handle.
  • CF die cast construction
    Yamaha’s Controlled Flow casting technique is used for many of the structural pieces on the chassis. The CF process draws the molten metal into the mold under a vacuum, reducing the formation of air bubbles in the material. As a result, pieces can be made much thinner and still deliver the strength characteristics of a conventionally cast, thicker piece.
  • Taller, wider, hooked bars
    The Nytro handlebars designed to give riders the best leverage and control in rough trail and pounded out ditches. They are taller, more forward and wider than other Yamaha sleds in the 120 hp lineup. In addition, they have hooks installed from the factory. The new location, in tandem with the rough trail seat, give the Nytro perfect ergonomics for aggressive bump playing. The Nytro handlebars are 3.5 inches higher, and farther forward than standard Vector-class machines. They measure just over 31 inches across, to give riders maximum leverage through the rough stuff.
  • Comfort

  • ProActive™ CK rear suspension
    The Nytro uses the ProActive CK torsion spring rear suspension. Calibrated to deliver the best performance for ripping it up through the moguls. Riders can preload the suspension at the base of road approaches or moguls and pop over them with a little squirt of throttle. The Nytro’s ProActive skid is designated CK for its clicker-adjustable remote reservoir shock in the rear. Owners will have 20 clicks of compression damping adjustment to tune the best ride for themselves. The ProActive CK offers 11.5 inches of vertical travel.
  • Wide runningboards with star-punched traction
    The Nytro’s wide runningboards feature star-punched traction throughout their entire length. The boards also have an outer traction roll for additional sure footing. As an added benefit, the traction holes help eliminate snow and slush from the runningboard, delivering additional confidence and comfort.
  • Rough trail seat
    The Nytro models have the tallest seats of the Vector-class trail lineup. They have been specifically built for the hard-charging rider who likes to play in the beat up trails and not just scoot over the tops. The added height of the rough trail seat makes it easy to go from sitting to standing. The rough trail seat still features the roomy cargo space. The seating position is 4.25 inches forward and 2 inches taller than the conventional Vector-class seat.
  • Standard electric start
    Yamaha’s electric starter system allows consumers to fire up their Nytro with the turn of a key. There is no pulling on a nylon cord to get this high-tech engine growling! Electric start has been a standard feature on all of Yamaha’s 4-stroke machines.
  • LCD gauge
    The digital gauge on the Nytro allows the driver to see engine RPM and track speed at a glance. The gauge also displays heater settings, fuel level, engine temperature and odometer. Yamaha offered the first digital gauge. Since then, it has become a standard of the industry. The digital readout has been copied by the competition almost across the board.
  • Digitally controlled hand and thumb warmers
    The Nytro’s hand and thumb warmers have been consistently rated among the best in the industry. They are individually-controlled, with the settings shown on the digital gauge so that riders can see them. Owners can choose from 10 settings on the grips and 10 settings on the thumb warmers, as opposed to the hi/lo settings of most other sleds on the market.
