Is a 175-Horse 1200 Ski-Doo in the Works?
Although Ski-Doo fans have put most of their buying focus on the new 600 E-Tec so far this year, the 1200 4-Tec has been holding its own in the sales races, too.
Demand for the sleds has been strong but many prospective buyers are taking a wait-and-see attitude with Ski-Doo’s first true high performance 4-stroke.
One dealer told us he was surprised at how many hyper-sled customers, who ride trails exclusively, were considering the 4-stroke because of its smooth and strong running 130hp mill.
Since it was first introduced in January this year, we’ve been hearing rumors from high places about the possibility of adding a supercharger, similar to the one Sea-Doo uses on a number of its watercraft and jet boats, to the 4-Tec to bring the power and torque of the mill up to hyper status.
Heavy on the minds of the top brass at Ski-Doo is Arctic Cat’s new sales theme, “World’s Fastest”.
With Arctic Cat owning the largest displacement 2-stroke right now (1000 twin) and the highest rated horsepower snowmobile (Z1 Turbo), we’re not sure the midnight oil isn’t burning in Valcourt to up the stakes on who really owns that title.
