Yamaha doesn't have any competition in their market share (4 stroke), the other three all tried and failed miserably at it.
    Yamaha is involved in many other things and have always done well, motorcycles,watercraft, outboards, atv's, automotive component development such as EFI, musical instruments and so on. The sled part of their business is a part of numerous others that make Yamaha who they are today.
    While some western rider's have wishful thinking, Yamaha small market in the west is solely owned by Yamaha and in the east Yamaha has a significantly larger market but more importantly has NO competition again. What they do have is true loyal fallowing of customers throughout the west and east.
    If you want a 2 stroke, there are 3 other's fighting in the corner for your business. If your a 4 stroke fan and want a 4 stroke, look no further, there is no one but Yamaha.
    Very smart on Yamaha, they own their market and that secures their future, can't say that about those other 3.
    So dream on about a Yammi 2 stroke, it ain't happening as the 4 stroke sled business is just too good....no competition.
    Wow......yes they have no competition. You are telling everyone that Yamaha is happy with single digit market share?

    After you spend some time sledding in the east Ill agree with Lund. Four strokes are growing and growing on that side of the country. Who wants to be rebuilding 2 smokes every year anyway.

    Seeing we are talking about snowmobiles and a proposed new 2 stroke I guess its my bad? Maybe the guitar division is supporting the motorsports division? Lucky for them.

    Can you imagine if yamaha actually put some effort in on something like this? Would be pretty incredible. Triple fuel injected 2 stroke in a modern chassis would be unreal.

    That would be sweet to have a modern chassis 2 stroke Yamaha sled. It looks like Yamaha is introducing a 65cc 2 smoker dirt bike, which is awesome IMO. Just sucks that I bit the bullet and bought my little guy a KTM 65 in the fall. I know it's a different industry , but maybe Yamaha is starting to think about introducing new 2 stroke powered machines.

    Yamaha certainly has the resources to dominate yet they choose not to? It will be cool if this rumor is true. Will force everyone else to step it up again.
