Yamaha Using Exotic Metals to Shed Weight

We said it wouldn’t be long until exotic materials would begin to appear on snowmobiles.

Yamaha has been on a mission shedding pounds from their 4-stroke models and this year they’ve employed titanium, magnesium and more aluminum to get weight out.

The RX-1’s Mono RA skid loses an incredible 14 pounds off the old Pro-Action, lead filled set-up.

The best part is this – you can actually feel the improvement the weight reductions make on the new Yamahas!
