Press Release –
The U.S. Department of Interior has approved four of BRP’s 2007 Ski-Doo snowmobiles powered by the Rotaxä V-800 four-stroke engine for use in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks.
Since November 2004, snowmobiles entering Yellowstone must meet strict National Park Service (NPS) regulations to receive “Best Available Technology” (BAT) certification.
The newly approved 2007 Ski-Doo models include:
* Legend Trail with V-800
* Legend Touring with V-800
* Expedition Sport with V-800
* Tundra with V-800
Those four snowmobiles are built on the lightweight RF chassis and powered by the new Rotax 4-TEC V-800 four-stroke engine, the most fuel efficient engine in the snowmobile industry with up to 25 mpg U.S. or 9.4 litres per 100 km.
“These are fun-to-ride snowmobiles with the latest four-stroke engine technology specific to snowmobiling,” said Yves Leduc, vice-president and general manager for Snowmobiles, Watercraft, ATVs and Sport boats. “We’re proud to offer Ski-Doo snowmobiles that not only meet the parks’ regulations, but are sleds that consumers will really enjoy.”
