What’s new in 2024 with BRP Lynx?

On February 20th, the BRP LYNX 2024 line-up was unveiled. This year, most of this lineup is getting a makeover with the new Radien 2 chassis (the equivalent of the gen 5 ski-doo) and new colors offered, including a “BLACK EDITION”.

When you say new chassis, you also say powerful LED headlights and the choice of a 10.25-inch color touch screen for the gauges.

Also, some accessories are now offered such as a passenger seat, the choice of a heated seat and improvements to the rear suspension.

The models offered remain the same as last year, namely the RAVE RE, the SHREDDER RE and DS, the XTERRAIN RE and the X TERRAIN BRUTAL.

LYNX RAVE RE

The RAVE RE, which has been around since the beginning, features the new Radien 2 platform with improved driver ergonomics and a recalibrated suspension.

New brakes with adjustable grip, LED headlights and an optional 10.25-inch color touchscreen refine the driving experience.

BRP LYNX 2024: Conclusion

So, there you have it, it’s not a huge change, and it’s still aimed at a target audience. It’s a range, as I said before, that is a notch above what we know at Ski-Doo. It’s more robust, but it’s a little less comfortable though. These are very powerful machines that are really fun to ride. Let’s hope that the rejuvenation will continue and that other models will be introduced next year.
