2003 Yamaha Twilight Black RX-1 with Electric Start and Hand Warmers.
Forget ‘everything’ you ever knew about snowmobiles. You’re looking at is the biggest thing to hit snowmobiling since..... the Snowmobile. Introducing the all-new RX-1. The first snowmobile designed specifically around a race-bred, high-performance four-stroke engine with more than 145 hp, the Genesis Extreme. Derived directly from the blistering in-line, 20-valve 998cc four-cylinder found inside our equally revolutionary R1 motorcycle, an award-winning supersport machine without peer. The RX-1’s pulse-racing power and torque, that blows away the competition’s big-bore twins, however, is merely where the fun begins, as every component — engine, chassis, suspension, bodywork — of this incredible machine has been engineered with one goal in mind: raise the level of ultimate snowmobile performance. It was only natural that things should come to this. After all, our ground-breaking four-stroke machines have been dominating motorsports — on asphalt and dirt — for quite some time. And so enters the all-new, standard-shattering RX-1, packing performance so radical and design so innovative, it’s destined to revolutionize snowmobiling as we know it. Yet one thing this extraordinary new four-stroke machine doesn't reinvent is what you expect to see on the scales - it weighs in like an SRX 700 would, if equipped with electric start. This outstanding accomplishment is proof, again, of the technological might and engineering capability of Yamaha. Nothing else even comes close: From its hellaciously powerful, R1-derived Genesis Extreme engine to its aggressive, all-new Deltabox chassis, independent wishbone front suspension and wind-cheating bodywork, the RX-1 is hands-down the most cutting-edge high-performance snowmobile the industry has ever seen. Available in Team Yamaha Blue/White and Twilight Black. And for a limited time, during Spring 2002... Liquid Silver. The all-new RX-1.
