And then you add the weight of the driver, and it all evens out. LOL

FYI Mighty. i know what power is, i own a 2011 apex XTX, it doesn't have a turbo or SC but even with the weight i can still out run my buddies 2015 rene 800 all day long, there not that fast and mine handles just fine in the twisties. the mid-range on this Apex is a lot of fun and pulls harder then the rene so i can only imagine how much fun the Sidewinder is going to be.

as for the weight, this seems to the be the first thing any one from the other brands faults Yamaha for besides the suspension. i don't notice the weight of my Apex at all and i'm sure the new SW will not be any different. wish i could afford one but not in my cards for a few years. thank God i ride a Yamaha, i know it will still be going just as strong and looking good when i'm ready to move on.

Sure the turbo will be great for shooting straight up a slope but tree riding and sidehilling....not so much.
Will it be a great midwest, Canadian and Eastern trail sled ...you bet, but getting much more than a 137 track will compromise the trail manners. I will be looking at a 129 this coming firesale season.


One of Yamaha claims on this sled is that the HP to weight ratio is very good.
If we believe the SW is 630# div by 180 claimed hp we get 3.5
AXYS SB 800 490# at 153 HP is 3.2
And 140# diff is like saying your sled is just as easy to maneuver and unstuck with your wife/GF or life partner on it with you.....LOL....not a bad idea if they were actually there to help dig and hoist!
Ok if you read Awerican snowmobiler
They have the wet weight of sleds in there and your Axys SB 800 weight in at 570 #
Also the Dyno report on the Sidewinder are at 204 hp
So that puts the Axys at 3.72hp per pound
And the Sidewinder at 3.08hp per pound

If you have children, in the future, i would suggest you consult them with your math questions/problems
If you dont have kids, theres this neato cool thing called google that will help you with math, among other things.

Do a google search on how to calculat hp to weight ratios.
Your not even in the correct galaxy with that post

If you do a google search for hp to weight calculator, you can punch in any weight and hp numbers and it will do the math for you.
Your numbers aint even close.

Ill wait here for you to report your findings and post the correct numbers. Lol
