Yamaha VK540V 2017
A new lease of life for our legendary VK540
Also announced for 2017 is the completely re-engineered Yamaha VK540. This world-famous workhorse now features a dual electric heated, flat–slide carburetor for better starting and fuel economy. When combined with the new, larger fuel tank, the VK540 has nearly double the fuel range of its predecessor. The body styling has been revised too, to decrease snow accumulation and ingestion.
Other highlights include an LED taillight, dual bulb-headlight, 400 Watt magneto output, larger rear rack and a comfortable raised seating position. The new, wider skis, in conjunction with a 1.5” lug track – work together to deliver even better off-trail use and deep-snow performance.
In short, every part of the VK540 has been built, tested and proven in some of the world’s most frigid conditions, making
it the ideal snowmobile for those who make their living off the land,
or who’ve come to trust Yamaha’s reputation for ultimate reliability, in unforgiving climates.
