    As the title states...

    Dirt Wheels posted this pic on their Facebook page last night saying this was the new engine in the Yamaha Sport SxS. Rumored to be 150 HP, 1050 cc 3 cylinder engine. As always this is just speculation, so take it with a grain of salt lol.

    This image was also being posted on some sites a few weeks ago as being the rumored engine. Not sure why I never posted it...

    @Timmi Seems to me that Polaris usually ends up leaking their own shit most of the time by sending out accessory catalogs to dealers early, or having their site live when updating early lol. In all honesty I don't think any manufacturer would do anything if one image leaked out. If you leak all specs, info and all the images that's a different story lol. I am not under embargo for this so post up any leaked images you guys come across lol. If they send me a waiver prior to the introduction then I'll have to remove them, but I don't think they will.

    I gotcha, brother!
    I would never do anything intentionally to sabotage you, this is a great site.
    Two connected friends have told me they have seen the pics, but I haven't seen them.

    Polaris usually has their shit there for customers to buy within a few days or weeks so a leak or two doesn't mean much.

    Yamaha is into drama on this to cover since they didn't release this thing when they first said they would. Damage control. Lots of elbows and ass holes working behind the scenes.

    Right Timmi? They have it fixed yet?

    @Timmi go ahead I ain't under embargo. Is it the yellow one?

    I can't believe they posted the info already. Almost wondering if there is another one coming with all the 150 hp talk that was being thrown around.

    Yep that's the pic Jesse sent me before. Any more out there? I have been busy working on some new sites and haven't really been looking around the sites.
