142hp. All aluminum.
more HP than a civic
thats pretty sweet
jesus. how much does it weigh?
8000RPM all day = made for it.
I'm betting that the headlight lense isn't aluminum.
I wish I had that type of money to spend on a toy.
ski-doo < arctic cat
470lbs dry I think.
The key to great mountain and powder riding is the ability to manipulate the sled with the least amount of rider effort. And no sled is easier to control than the new Summit-REV. Its breakthrough design pushes mountain riding far beyond all previous standards of performance.
For starters, the Summit-REV is 35 pounds lighter than a similarly-equipped Summit built on the ZX platform. Which makes it the lightest mountain sled ever produced†.
This astounding powerto-weight ratio results in higher climbing, increased flotation, easier handling, and reduced rider fatigue.
What’s more, the sled’s mass has been centralized around its pivot point. This has been achieved by moving the engine back 2.6 inches and lowering it 1.25 inches compared to the ZX platform. Then, moving the heaviest part on a snowmobile, the driver, 10" forward, the REV platform positions eighty percent of the sled’s riding mass right under the driver.This dramatically improves handling and responsiveness when boondocking, climbing and sidehilling.
Even with the serious weight reduction, the Summit-REV chassis is extremely strong. An innovative pyramidal frame makes it 600 percent stiffer than the ZX chassis. The reduced chassis flex translates to unrivaled responsiveness, most noticeable when powder riding. Because when a rider pulls on the bars to help bank the sled they essentially pull on the entire frame.
The Summit-REV also brings a new 16-inch wide PowderMax track to the mountains. The increased width enables a 144-inch track sled to float and climb like a 151-inch track, but with increased on - and off - trail maneuverability.
†Compared to 2003 equivalent OEM models. Weight comparison is manufacturer dry weight which is no fuel, no oil and no cooling.
fuck that looks so much fun I want to try one so bad.
you are the funniest guy alive.
is it fast?
Fuck, i want a fucking snowmobile.
It's not made for speed. It's geared for powder and climbing.
It'll still doo 140-145km/h at 6000'.
Meh. REV's like to catch fire. Give me a Polaris Edge X-700 Anyday!
For all you snowmobile guys, rank these manufacturers by general product quality:
I'm doing an accounting paper on Polaris. Just curious where they stand in the industry.
God, it's been AGES since I've gone boondocking!
[SIZE=-7]psst---it's skidoo...but I'll let that pass since I'm a Polaris fan.[/SIZE]
