Dealer Insights

The ultimate 4 stroke mountain sled featuring Yamaha's new chassis.


The High Performance 4-stroke and SRV chassis make the SRViper M-TX 153 one of the best four-stroke deep snow snowmobiles available.

Yamaha Genesis High Performance Engine

• 3 cylinder

• Yamaha YVXC clutch

• 41mm fuel injection

• 10 gal (37L) fuel capacity

Power Claw Track

• 2.6" lug

• Excellent flotation

• Superior traction

  • High Performance Genesis 4-stroke engine: The over-achieving Genesis® engine is the heart of our lightweight and aggressive SRViper model family. It pulls consistently hard from takeoff to top end. Your thumb cracks a trio of 41mm throttle bodies that deliver strong performance from idle to wide open.
  • Fuel injection: The Genesis High Performance engine uses Yamaha's advanced fuel injection system to control fuel flow to the engine. Consumers will enjoy the engine's spot-on performance and throttle response as a result of the advanced electronic fuel injection system.
  • Engine braking reduction system: The Genesis High Performance engine features the unique Engine Braking Reduction System. The system allows a small amount of air to pass through the fuel injection system when the throttle is released, giving riders a "coast" feeling.
  • Legendary Yamaha Clutching: The SRViper M-TX 153 uses the legendary Yamaha YVXC clutching. Easily the most reliable and durable clutch system in the industry, the YVXC has evolved to efficiently handle the unique power characteristics of the Genesis 4-stroke engine.
  • Multi-purpose magnesium chaincase: The SRViper M-TX 153's chain case and cover serve as both a mounting point for chassis spars and the engine's oil reservoir. Lightweight magnesium construction minimizes weight.
  • High performance Hayes Brake system: The SRViper M-TX 153's high performance Hayes brake system delivers stopping power with a large-diameter, 8-inch rotor. Mounted low on the drive shaft, you feel immediate whoa-power with a quick stab of the brake. The hydraulic brake's race-inspired radial master cylinder design gives you excellent leverage when needed, with precise brake feel and control.
  • 15 x 153 x 2.6-inch Power Claw track: If deep snow capability is critical to you, then the M-TX 153's Power Claw track is an important feature. The 2.6" lug can move a lot of snow, and its floatation ability is nothing short of phenomenal. The durable, yet lightweight design offers performance and efficiency. For riders who are serious about their deep snow riding, the Power Claw is the ace up your sleeve.
  • Lightweight, rigid SRV chassis: The SRV chassis combines a load-bearing triangulated structure with lightweight aluminum construction to create a neutrally balanced sled that centered on the rider. The pyramidal upper frame creates chassis strength without excessive weight.
  • SRV-M Front suspension: The SRV-M front suspension geometry is aimed at managing spindle camber, resulting in minimized bumpsteer and maximized cornering bite and rider confidence in varying trail conditions. The a-arms are mounted at a 30-degree angle from the sled's centerline to efficiently dissipate impact force throughout the entire chassis. Likewise, the front shocks mount directly to the leading spar so that trail forces are routed to the strongest part of the chassis. Wide a-arm spacing minimizes flex and stress in the front suspension system, which means consistent and confident corner handling.
  • Centralized mass design: The SRV chassis layout was engineered with the goal of centralizing mass. Approximately 60 percent of the sled's weight is tightly centered within the main triangulation. The result is a quick-handling sled that's fun in a wide variety of conditions.
  • Side exit exhaust: The exhaust exits out the belly on the SRVipers. The unique chassis layout allows the exhaust to exit the back of the engine, have the 3-into-1 manifold cooled by snow kicked up through a hole in the tunnel and then bring the pipe back to the muffler in a traditional configuration. The end result is mass centralization, excellent handling and consistent performance.
  • Adjustable ski stance: The ski rubbers on the SRViper M-TX 153 are asymmetrical, with a portion of the part serving as a spacer for the ski. This allows riders to adjust the ski stance on the M-TX SE from 38 to 39 inches, center to center, by simply switching the ski rubbers from left to right, and right to left.
  • Over-the-engine steering: The straight steering post on the SRViper M-TX 153 is configured over the engine. It connects to a single bell crank for simplicity and light weight. The design also minimizes freeplay in the steering system and delivers a tight turning radius.
  • Plastic mountain ski: The SRViper M-TX 153's plastic mountain skis offer extra width for excellent powder handling characteristics. The unique arched fin design of the ski also deflects snow away from the sled and the rider. The mountain ski also features traction grippers molded into the tops.
  • Tall, hooked handlebars with center strap: To match the SRViper M-TX 153's tall and forward riding position, a single-piece, dual-hooked handlebar is standard fare on. The hooks have the same grip material as the main bar section, for consistent control, regardless of hand position on the grip. The M-TX 153 also sports a tough center grab strap for additional leverage options in deep snow.
  • Comfort-tuned HPG shock package: The SRViper M-TX 153 is calibrated for all-day comfort and big time deep snow adventures. Coil springs over the rebuildable, comfort-tuned HPG shocks add a smoothing action, whether your launching up an incline or playing in the trees.
  • Dual Shock SR 153 rear suspension: The SRViper M-TX 153's high pressure gas shocks take your punishment with fade-resistant action over the bumps or when you want to challenge the terrain. With a half-inch to slide freely under acceleration and deceleration, thanks to a unique front arm slotted mount design, the Dual Shock SR suspension keeps the track planted for maximum grip under full throttle or full braking. The rear axle features a conjoined rear wheelset. The ingenious design is lighter, more durable and more rigid than most traditional rear axle wheels.
  • Tapered tunnel design: The SRViper M-TX 153's two-piece, tapered tunnel gives you strength for the long haul and a tapered "fit" for enhanced leg comfort and overall ride positioning.
  • Large fuel tank: The SRViper M-TX 153's generous 10.6-gallon fuel tank combines with the Genesis engine's acknowledged fuel efficiency to keep you going longer. The M-TX 153's efficient design philosophy means that even the fuel tank serves multiple functions. Not only does it carry gas for a long day, but it also cradles the battery and is the platform for the quick-release trail seat.
  • Tall, sculpted seat: The seat foam on the SRViper M-TX 153 is anatomically designed to comfortably put the rider in an aggressive posture with easy transitions from seated to standing to leaning into a corner.
  • Digital gauge: Full-featured and easy to read, the digital gauge displays critical information in a glance including speed, fuel level, trip mileage, tach and more. We even included a clock so you can watch the time fly.
  • Push button reverse: Convenient handlebar positioning makes getting in reverse easy with just the push of your thumb. A servo motor shifts the drivetrain into reverse simply and consistently.
  • Standard electric start: Yamaha's electric starter system allows consumers to fire up their SRViper M-TX 153 with the turn of a key. There is no pulling on a nylon cord to get this high-tech engine growling! Electric start is a standard feature on all of Yamaha's 4-stroke machines.
