2018 Yamaha SnoScoot





Remember your first snowmobile? Remember the fun, excitement and empowerment you felt as you conquered the winter months in the back yard, on the frozen lake or at the cottage? The SnoScoot has returned to bring back those memories with the hopes of passing those feelings on to the next generation of snowmobilers. Featuring a reliable, four-stroke, 200cc Yamaha engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the SnoScoot is guaranteed to put the fun back in snowmobiling.

  • Yamaha 200cc 4-Stoke Engine: Dependable Yamaha fan-cooled 200cc 4-stroke engine, Easy pull recoil starter, Quiet operation
  • Long Tapered Tunnel: Long, lightweight aluminum tunnel, Tapered up towards rear for greater clearance, Enables SnoScoot to get out and play in the deep snow
  • Cobra Track: Ample traction and flotation, 93 x 10 x 1.0 in lug, Affords an ideal balance between hard pack agility and fresh snow ability
  • Large Fuel Tank: A generous 2.1 Gal / 8 liter gas tank combined with the miserly fuel consumption of the efficient 4-stroke engine will keep your little sled-head out doors enjoying fun-filled hours between pit stops.
  • High Output Magneto: Yamaha made sure there is plenty of electrical power in the SnoScoot for its bright 'trail legal' lighting system, toasty hand warmers and select options like a convenient electric starter.
  • CVT Drive System: The SnoScoot's performance benefits from a direct drive, CVT with plenty of gear ratio supplied through a durable rubber drive belt and variable pulley transmission.
  • Hydraulic Disc Brake: The SnoScoot features a lightweight Hayes Hydraulic Disc brake to provide easy operation with positive stopping power to the track.
  • Electronic Rev Limiter: The 200cc engine has an electronic rev limiter to make sure the maximum reliable RPM is never exceeded to ensure long engine life and safe operation.
  • Transistorized Ignition: A fully transistorized electronic ignition helps ensure reliable starts and endless hours of maintenance free operation.
  • Wishbone front Suspension: Double wishbone front suspension serves up 4.5 inches of travel with a 30.5 inch ski stance giving the SnoScoot plenty of stability and ride comfort.
  • Long Steering post with Riser: The steering system is laid out to offer a wide range of seating positions to accommodate various size riders. The racy handle bar riser, adds another element to the look and feel that compliments the overall ergonomics.
  • Torsion Spring Rear Suspension: A preload adjustable torsion spring and hydraulic shock absorber take care of the slide rail rear suspension duties offering up 4.5 inches of vertical rail travel
  • NEW Plastic Ski: Yamaha designed a new, lightweight plastic ski for the SnoScoot based on the size and weight of the smaller chassis. It provides excellent steering character with just the right amount of float for play in the soft stuff.
  • Front Suspension Geometry: New spindles and A-arms have been designed with geometry to help keep the steering effort low and handling precise.
  • Styling: The hot look of the new SnoScoot is guaranteed to appeal to the young shredder. Taking its styling cues from our full size performance machines, the new SnoScoot is now the envy of the school yard.
  • Trail Certified Headlight: A bright 55/65 watt bulb, lights up the way to make sure the SnoScoot rider can see and be seen. Meeting the international compliance specifications for public trail use.
  • TORS Throttle Override: A throttle over ride system is added to make sure the RPM returns to idle in the event of anything affecting the normal operation of the cable to carburetor throttle system.
  • Hand and Thumb Warmers: Parents all know that cold hands can cut a kid's day short. The new SnoScoot features standard heated grips and thumb warmer to extend the fun.
  • Front and Rear Bumpers: These handy items are a must have feature helping protect the chassis from unexpected bumps and bangs. They also come to the aid when the need to pull around either end of the machine is required.
  • Windshield: The sculpted mid height wind deflector strikes a nice balance between function and great looks held in common with the snow conquering Sidewinder.
