The very first Yamaha SR Viper RTX SE snowmobiles have rolled off the assembly line at the Arctic Cat factory in Thief River Falls, Minn. The milestone was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony with executives from both companies and witnessed by the factory employees responsible for building the units.
“Our alliance is a show of great cooperation between our companies and this, I believe, is the biggest news to hit our business in decades,” says Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA president, Toshizumi Kato. “On behalf of Yamaha Motor Japan I would like to congratulate everyone on this major accomplishment of what we see here today. Thank you to the factory workers of Arctic Cat, you should be very proud of the work you have done.”
