2013 Polaris 800 Switchback Adventure Review - Video
A year ago we were hoping that the snowmobiling equivalent of motorcycling's bagger would catch on as Polaris stepped out to introduce a new sport cruiser snowmobile. We won't lie. We had some reservations. First of all, the Switchback-derived stretched chassis Polaris Adventure was only available with the 600 two-stroke twin. Good enough for cruising, but why not offer the more potent 800 twin with the 150-plus horsepower? And, yes, Polaris engineering does an excellent job in establishing base suspension setups, but why not offer Walker Evans premium shocks with their exceptional tunability?
That was then. For 2013 Polaris makes us very happy. Very happy, indeed. Welcome to the 2013 Polaris 800 Switchback Adventure. Complete with a Walker Evans shock package. But this is a limited edition sled and it has to be spec'd out and pre-ordered within the Polaris Snow Check timeframe, which ends April 23, 2012!
