      Yamaha Viper Turbo Action

      Yamaha Trail and Crossover riders can now get the same power boost offered to Yamaha’s Mountain riders. Yamaha and Mountain Performance Incorporated (MPI) have expanded their partnership on the newly released MPI Trail Turbo Accessory Kit for Yamaha Viper snowmobiles developed for applications below 6,000 feet.

      MPI has been producing “boosted” turbo and supercharger kits for Yamaha snowmobiles since the 2013 model year. Earlier this year, Yamaha announced the introduction of an MPI accessory turbo kit for the all-new Viper M-TX. During Yamaha’s Spring Power Surge, Yamaha customers could purchase the MPI kit in conjunction with a new M-TX at a considerable savings. The dealer-installed kit delivers an additional 45 horsepower on pump gas.
