Ski-Doo has been fine-tuning its big 1200 4-stroke to make it more user-friendly and the net result is a sled that’s warmer, plusher and much more controllable than the ’09 version.
The mid-range torque this biggest-in-the-biz-displacement king makes is mind-bending. The GSX will slingshot from 60 to 80 mph like a hypersled and it does it without fuss or effort.
Smoothness is this snowmobile’s calling card and it starts with the SE’s fully adjustable air-ride suspension.
Even 200-pound riders could leave the setting at “one” on choppy trails and get incredible ride results.
In a big drop-out or sinker, you will bottom out with this super-low setting but if the trails have been groomed within the last 48 hours, Bob’s your uncle.
Ski-Doo sent us an accessory 2-up seat for this GSX and although an engineering degree may be required to assemble it, once put together, it makes a fabulous accessory and the GSX has enough suspension range to handle an extra rider with ease.
We continue to be impressed as the miles stack up on this capable long distance cruiser.
