To introduce the 2022 lineup of Yamaha sleds, I felt I needed the introduction above to setup this writing assignment, because taken at face value, there isn’t much new for Yamaha hitting the snow next year. I’ve read the posts on social media, and heard the disappointment that there isn’t “more” when talking to other sled heads. These comments are not exclusive to Yamaha fans. In fact, most of the really negative comments are from people that are not current Yamaha customers. Even if the new sleds were built out of titanium, made 250 horsepower, weighed less then 400 pounds, and ran on unicorn methane.
A new Yamaha chassis is just speculation at this point. What isn’t is a line-up that delivers on the core wants and needs of Yamaha customers, no matter what rider category you put yourself in.
