What's teh price tag????
If I was you I'd stick with the ZR.[/b]
$10,699 with reverse and no dry weight listed. '08 Phazer is 476 lbs dry, so you know it isn't going to be light. '08 liquid RevXP's, 435 lbs, yikes!

Read on another site the sled is around 575lbs???

Personally like the looks and love the idea of an EFI 4 stroke in the 120-130 hp range, naturally aspirated in a good chassis.

Sat on a 07 today and like the way it felt. I think it's a sled that I could have allot of fun with. I really like the motocross seat. I like riding dirt bikes though so it's kind of natural to me.

At a 130 hp it should rip around pretty good.

Looked it up on Yamaha's website and the Nytro ranges from $13,000 to $14,000. Seems a little pricey.
THe scary thing is, the premium Apex is priced at SIXTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! Add 14% to that one and what do you get? $18,240. THe madness has to end.

You pay for quality, I am sure that there are going to have little issues with the new model but all in all it's worth it...I ride with a group of guys and just the savings in gas alone is well worth it I burn pretty close to half of what they do, and it costs me $50 in oil a year....The new Nytro will be a great sled to own, I have read that the dry weight on the Nytro was 514 lbs not sure how true it is and when it hits production the weight will probably go up, all the manufactures do that ...If I were to buy a new trail sled the Nytro would probably be the one....

I saw an ad on TV yesterday and they said STARTING at $6300.00 US. So I dont know how high it can go from there. Some guys on another site that ride these alot say they are really quick up to about 60 MPH, then they really die off. Some have said they can stay with most 600 two strokes out of the hole but they loose a lot on top. That seams to contradict what is typical from what I have experience with the Yammi 4 strokes. However I have a few more CC's under the hood also. I think it would be fun to ride though.

What savings in gas? The Yamahas are no better then an SDI, and in some cases worse. As for the oil, you can buy about 25,000 miles worth of two stroke oil with the money you save buying a decent 2-stroke vs. a top of the line Yamaha, so any talk about oil doesn't wash with me either.

That said, my original comment about the madness of the prices of new sleds was not aimed at just Yamaha. Both Ski-Doo and Cat also had 07 sleds listed at above $15,000. Just whacko, and even though there are people out there who are willing to spend the money, it can't be good for our sport when the price of a sled is more then a car.

Ya! no kidding, I could use a new truck but I hate to pay that price so I buy used. So there is no way I can justify paying such a high price for a sled either.

Newfie I am not trying to impress you or anything when you know what you are talking about Maybe get back into the form if you want to talk about oil sure the SDI motors are great on oil BUT LOOK AT THE PRICE TAG ON ONE pretty much the same as Yamaha...Same goes for gas the SDI motor are very close to consumption on gas ( I know as I ride with one ) Now if you want talk about a a 2 stroke that is CHEAPER then the Yamahas then gas you save is worth it to some and so is the oil..If you were to put 2000kms on a sled in one season and you used a good 2 stroke oil you would burn 3-4 gallons give or take...at $30 - $40 a gallon for oil that adds up to about somewhere around the $100 ++mark or more ..Now lets talk gas I can get 250- 280 kms on a tank now alot of those big twins you are lucky if you see 180 kms to a tank , and not to mention the ring job and maybe pistons you have to do at 3000- 5000 kms ....Sure I like the SDI motors they are great they have more of a reality issue then the 4 strokes ....If you look at sales from all the manufactures I think you will find people are paying for the technology and reliability then they are just a cheap price...Look on the trail this year I have seen lots of new Yamahas , lots of Ski-doos , a few cats I am yet to see one new Polaris ............

Ring job at 3000-5000 kms??? How many years has it been since you've owned a two stroke?

You're right though, about the number of new Yamahas on the trail. I've seen quite a few new Yamahas lately, and more Yamahas that are a year or two old. They seem to be doing well.

Not that many Cats on the snow this year. I've seen one Crossfire, one or two F-series, and the normal older ones you always see.

There seems to be alot of Ski-Doos out there, but that's only because the last 5 years of Ski-doos look exactly the same, so who's to know how many new ones are on the snow.

Polaris? You're right, I've seen only a couple of IQ's, a few more Fusions, and dozens and dozens of Edge's and Indy's.

No doubt, the Yamahas look good, just over priced, over weight, and over hyped. I'd love to see a Yamaha, ANY Yamaha, keep up with me on a rough trail. It'll never happen.
