Well guys, the trend continues, Ski-doo has just brought out a new sled that looks ALOT like yami's new RX-1, but i think Ski-Doo got it right, With the new chassis they are offering either the 600 or 800 cc twin "2-STROKE" engine in it!!!!!!!!!!! I just recieved my latest issue of "SnowGoer" and its on the cover. Looks like a pretty cool sled to me, but not sure i would want to own it. I prefer the lower, regular sleds. But anyways, check it out, not sure if Ski-Doo has it on thier web-site or not but i know its in snowgoer mag.......now if only Polaris could come out with something to show the competition how its done.

yeah, hopefully. i'm really wondering about them. they're the biggest snowmobile manufacturer so they should be able to do SOMETHING innovative.

When in doubt- Throttle out!

Also cool is a 600 and 800 HO model. and a 1+1 seat. A clip on to make it a 2-up. Part of the gas tank is under the seat. Lots of cool stuff. Actually, I think it looks a lot like the Blade. Follow the leader.

I want to ride every day, all day, as fast as I can.

i don't care how functional anything is- that has to be the UGLIEST sled i've ever seen. makes the rx-1 look like a beauty queen.

Ewww, xc racer, you are correct. I dislike the styling of that machince. The new RX-1 looks much, much better. It looks like they used the same style as thier new racer. Sorry to say, it may perform good but I sure wouldn't buy one because of the way it looks.

Man, I've always liked the looks of the Ski Doo's untill this one. Yeah, I'm sure the performance is incredable......but that styling........the thing looks like a PWC w/ skis and a track.

if the OEM's keep tryin to make the sleds look cooler they are gonna go and do the exact opposite. look at this: very damn ugly. at first i didn't like the viper, then i didn't like the new Sno Pro, and i sure as hell don't like this thing, and I'm all Ski-Doo. Now I like the Viper and Sno Pro, but this thing to me is still ugly as hell, no matter how good it performs. Ugly period.

I may be young, but I ain't dumb!!!

Although I think it looks ALRIGHT at best, I thought the race sleds looked much better.....must have been the paint. Hard to tell from the picture but the black one looks kinda cool.

I think the thing that I really don't like about it is the way the side panels drop down so low. It doesn't give the sence that it has a belly pan. Looks like its got gobs of front end travel, but almost as if the side panel would hit the ground before the front shock bottomed out. Thats why it almost looks like a PWC.

No, I'm sure it doesn't, just an optical illusion. Need to see some more pics of it.

Yes i am also quite curious how a PWC jumped out of the water onto a track and skis. I think that that is the ugliest piece of machinery i have ever seen.
