just came back from yamaha demo ride rode everything, the nitro fx was interesting good power, had to much carbide back end wanted to pass the front end, i thought it lacked power in the deep snow (but then it was not a long track), great on hard pack , good acceleration to about 80 then drops off, would be a good ditch banger, seems to like the big bumps , rode the vector short and long track good sled nice power, nice trail sled, long track was good in the deep. took out the 40th appex 136 nice sled in powder needs wider ski,s takes awhile to get ontop the snow but once there will run good, nice on trails 150 has lots of torque. the last sled i rode and had a blast on was the phazer not enough power but fun hold it to the pin and go, light and easy to throw around, oh the only sled i did not ride was the venture lite to damn ugly.
after saying all this one has to realize that none of these sleds were setup to my wieght and riding style however i think yamaha has done a good job. just my 2 cents.

there was only one guy from yamaha he just brought the sleds to the dealership, the dealer said jump on and go i was out for over half and hour with one sled i spent about 20 min on the others, some it took out twice, i took out my apex and raced the nitro, then we raced the nitro against the vector, then the nitro against the vector longtrack, nitro hooked upgood.
