The 2013 Yamaha SR Viper LTX SE proved itself to be an adept drag racer as it earned the quickest times in the 600-class down the quarter-mile track at the 24th annual Old Forge Shoot-Out. The White Otter Fish & Game Club in Woodgate, NY hosted the event.

Yamaha boasts the Viper posted quarter-mile times of 12.5 seconds in the both box stock and dealer prep rounds of the independent acceleration test. According to the unofficial results announced on site, the Viper was 0.4 seconds quicker to the finish line than the closest competitive 4-stroke sled and 0.2 seconds quicker than the closest competitive 2-stroke sled.

“The Old Forge Shoot-Out is the first independent test of true box stock, production sleds,” says Yamaha Snowmobile Product Manager Rob Powers. “It really shows the strength of the new SR Viper models and the efficiency of our YVXC clutches in transferring the Genesis engine’s power to the snow.”
