NEW SKI-DOO MODELS AND NEW 600R E-TEC ENGINE
BRP (TSX:DOO) solidifies its leadership position once again with the introduction of two new Ski-Doo snowmobiles and a next-generation Rotax E- TEC engine.
The new models are part of BRP's obsession to continually improve the rider experience with world-class products. A limited-build MXZ 600R E-TEC features a new high- performance, lightweight Rotax E-TEC engine, and a new Expedition SWT directly addresses the need for a greater balance of capability and comfort for better days out on the snow.
LIMITED-BUILD MXZ 600R E-TEC
A new highly responsive Ski-Doo MXZ 600R E-TEC brings together the innovative Ski-Doo REV Gen4 chassis with 600-class efficiency and reliability. It features an all-new 600cc Rotax powerplant with 125-hp, along with premium shocks, upgraded track and high-performance steering for an extremely agile and fun ride.
"Ski-Doo MXZ models continue to set the bar with innovation and provide riders the best trail performance experience," said Bernard Guy, BRP senior vice-president, Global Product Strategy. "The new MXZ 600R E-TEC is designed to establish a new standard with exceptional performance and great value."
ROTAX 600R E-TEC
The all-new, advanced Rotax 600R E-TEC keeps BRP at the head of the class as the leader in lightweight, high-performance snowmobile engines. Development goals were lofty: improve the ride experience by increasing 600-class power and delivering exceptional dynamic response and reliability while maintaining the best-in-class E-TEC reputation for efficiency and durability.
Based on the same square engine principles (bore and stroke being equal) as the 850 E-TEC, the 600R E-TEC succeeds across the board, giving riders a precise and dynamic response at any throttle position for instant acceleration and an impressive fun factor.
It has a 30 percent improvement in throttle response (matching the improvement of the 850) compared to the previous generation, and its central layout within the REV Gen4 platform gives the MXZ 600R E-TEC incredibly precise handling.
People have used the word "unstoppable" to describe the new Ski-Doo Expedition SWT, which is equal parts comfort and capability. It combines the outstanding traction and floatation of a 24" (60 cm) track with the comfort and stability of an adjustable 38.4 – 40.2" (97.5 – 102 cm) front suspension.
The result is an improved rider experience so people can conquer more terrain more easily and more comfortably whether for work or for play.
