2010 Yamaha RS Vector GT First Impressions


by Pascal Bastien ,

The CVT transmission operates like a charm; the new performance-oriented calibration helps in delivering lively thrust while reducing engine speed to a minimum in relaxed riding conditions, thereby improving fuel economy and emission levels. On the performance side, maintaining a quick rhythm on twisty trails is child's play. A slight pull on the throttle lever is enough  to catapult you into the next corner. Overall, the new RS Vector feels more responsive and agile in sharp turns than the Yamaha Apex, thanks to generous torque across the usable rev band.

Rear suspension compression dampening can be fine-tuned through a remote adjuster.

Improved suspension
Chassis upgrades include revised settings for the rear shock absorber. The firmer damping translates into a more pleasant ride, with less bottoming over bigger bumps. At the rear, compression damping can be adjusted by a knob on the left side tunnel.

In short, the new 2010 Yamaha RS Vector GT proves to be more attractive than ever with a racier, more modern design in the back. The Nytro-derived engine is thriftier, more potent and easier to exploit, allowing this model to regain its lead over other versatile sport snowmobiles.
