Just hope they figure out this engine/rod issue. With more and more reports of rod failures with factory installed turbo's, this could certain put the breaks on for the growth of this partnership for sure. Especially since Yamaha has been the front runner with big reliable boost engines. Just wondering if they are now using this market as a test bed with the customer as the ginnie pig which will obviously hurt their reputations and probably already has.

"Still competitors in the 2 stroke market" what does this mean? Makes a guy wonder about what's on the horizon,

Ya, that comment left me scratching my head as well.
I thought Yamaha was totally OUT of the 2 stroke market.
I wonder if they were referring to another product line?

I would like to know how many pure Yamaha sleds were sold last season? I'm not going to speculate could be a lot in east. But that chassis and motor came over on the mayflower.

Not sure how reliable the source but I did hear a two stroke is coming! I'll be on the viper in 17 and patiently waiting for 18. I've gone the ski don't route and it would have to be phenomenal for me to drop the coin on one. Plus the only first year sled I ever buy are yamaha
