How much HP does a 2008 700 Switchback have – 140 or 135 dyno’d?
Does this sled compare with a 600 SDI or a 120 HP Yamaha on fuel consumption?
Thanks for your email!
I cannot confirm the 700 CFI IQ engines HP but Polaris pegs it at 140 – I think that’s reasonable.
The 700 would not get similar mileage to a SDI 600 Ski-Doo – it couldn’t! The 600 SDI SD has 118 HP and the Vector 1000 triple is 120 HP – you are comparing apples to oranges.
The 700 CFI is a mid to high teens mpg motor. The SDI 600 and Yamaha Vector engines can get low 20’s. However – the 700 SDI would tow either by virtue of its greater HP.
