The 600 class has always been competitive, but it’s never been as tight as in 2006. Polaris has singlehandedly taken us back to the glory days of 2000 when the Liberty 600 was the strongest sled in the 600 category.
Of course, at that time AC was still three years away from the insanely quick Firecat 600 and Ski-Doo had yet to grind bigger holes for an HO Series III 600.
This year, even Yamaha’s “600 class” competitor, the 1000cc Vector is a player in the 120 horsepower game.
While it’s too soon to name a new champion of the sport’s most popular displacement class, after initial pulls at altitude with the four sleds mentioned here, we expect the rules to be re-written.
