Ski-Doo did not show its MX Zx 600 RS sno-X weapon at Hay Days this year.
As we go to press, we can now share details on the much improved limited-build RS.
A radical dual intake system gets more cold air to the carbs while a heavily revised SC-5 rear skid will benefit from a new rear arm, rear shock linkage, stronger rails and stronger rear coupler stops.
Look for a return to four rear tires. Up front, Ski-Doo made a myriad of changes including a wider stance, altered steering ratio, new spindles, new A-arms and adjustable castor capability.
The shocks are now all piggyback reservoir KYBs. Of great interest to racers are changes to enhance chassis durability including stronger castings and stronger engine mounts while pilots will appreciate stronger, wider running boards with an integrated footrest, rolled edges and toeholds.
There’s also a reshaped seat for easier gymnastic transitions, a new Brembo brake caliper with enhanced cooling and a new track design for better cornering and traction.
