    2015 Polaris Sleds.

    I'm seeing different postings from Polaris online talking about "Project AxYs" On Feb 17th they drop. Only thing I can think of is maybe its a play on it being the Vertical Y-Axis, and it's Polaris answer to the Ski-Doo T-Motion, even though IMO the Pro's don't need that because they already carve on a dime.

    Any thoughts?

    Somebody said it's a single-shock trail skid. I don't think the RMK's get anything but a powder coated tunnel.

    ive ridden the 750 4 stroke, people underestimate that engine and its kinda faded to the 2up class, they need to feature it in something other than that. I think its an awesome powerplant and it doesn't get the recognition it deserves, just my 2cents

    I've been reading up on people speculating the use the 1000 RZR fourstroke in a newer than the IQ chassis. Apparently there's also bolt holes around the exhaust for a factory turbo option. I've also seen other rumors, some crazy some plausible, about upping the horsepower 10% with an 800/850cc... maybe doing that by DI or 900 triple based on the 600 twin (less likely); possible refined body panels. Maybe they'll finally make rumors from the last 3-4 years true and come with a DI 600 haha.
    Being the 60th anniv there has to be at least something big happening, but it doesn't seem to be on the mountain chassis. Time will tell.

    I'm more interested if they will keep the IQR??? I know they are mandating EFI for race sleds so it will be interesting to see what they have in store for that part of the scene.

    Curious to see how that will affect the Rush sales. May keep the Indy on par for ride quality, but keep the up front cost down compared to the Pro-ride skid sleds.

    What if that suspension is a replacement for the pro ride? Maybe it will combat stutter bumps better than the pro-ride, plus it might draw more sales from would-be rMotion buyers by going back to a traditional tunnel.

    Maybe, but it seems like a huge investment into the Pro-ride for it to only be around a short time before being phased out to essentially what they had before.

    other than some rearranging of where things are mounted it looks quite similar to a conventional skid... how do they compensate for what the front shock does, without the front shock? Just not seeing it in that diagram.
