2012 Ski-Doo Snowmobiles Introduced [Video]
Launched to an audience composed of North American, Russian, Japanese and Chinese dealers, the new line-up comes with new models and a full array of state-of-the-art features, all designed to appeal to a broad owner base and new entrants to the sport of snowmobiling.
Leading the innovations is the rMotion rear suspension, which will be available on the Ski Doo MX Z X-RS and MX Z X models for 2012. BRP also offers new models with three different track length packages: 154”, 146” and 137” (392, 371, and 348 cm), all featuring the REV-XP RS chassis, KYB Pro 40 shocks and other features.
In the utility segment, the Ski-Doo Skandic SWT sled moves to the REV-XU platform, making the 2012 Ski-Doo snowmobiles 100% built on the REV-X platform. The new Skandic SWT model boasts a 156 x 24 inch track (391 x 61 cm), six percent more fuel capacity and 52 fewer pounds (24 kg), as well as new styling and a flexible riding position.
New for 2012, BRP is offering a choice of three engine options with the Ski-Doo GSX SE model: the 4-TEC 1200, E-TEC 600 H.O. and the E-TEC 800R engines.
“The 2012 line-up caps off a decade of innovative product introductions,” declared Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager for the International division. “BRP is enhancing the consumer value proposition around the globe and this new line-up will unlock the potential for our selling networks to capitalize on the industry rebound.”
