These pictures are worth thousands of words!

"Snowmobiling's Hot-Rod Lincoln"
…EPS provides nearly effortless steering that calms some of the previously darty nature of the Deltabox II chassis.
…Now sporting its "third generation" front suspension with a revised ski design, Yamaha's engineers have gotten closer to cooking a recipe for ideal front-end snowmobile handling, but there is still work to be done.
Whereas lower and lighter machines will dive into a corner without the need to scrub much speed – one of the elemental joys of performance snowmobiling – you can't resist the impulse to grab the brakes when the Apex approaches a tight corner. It doesn't dart as much as it used to before EPS, but it will still lift a ski unexpectedly and can feel tippy through sharp "S" curves.
…Riders unconcerned about cornering speeds will be delighted and amazed.
