You should know that making this choice means choosing a different variation of platform for each model. For example, the carbon fiber or aluminum overstructure, the tunnel reinforcements, the drive belt or drive chain and the variable spacing of the front suspension are crucial decisions the buyer must take.
- Choose the engine : This essential step in a snowmobiler’s life offers you the choice between the 2-stroke 600 cc or the 800 H.O. Cleanfire engine.
- Choose the track : At this step, the wise buyer has the chance to choose another main feature of an extreme or off-trail snowmobile, that is the track. Many types are available, 144, 155 or 163 in., according to your preferences.
