With a history of "evolutionizing" products, Polaris brings back the legendary Indy name. This may be the sleeper of the year. If you were a Polaris fanatic and could build your very own pure fun sled, here's what you'd do. First, you'd settle in on the latest Cleanfire 600cc twin for power. It's reliable and has very good overall performance. Then you'd specify the latest Rush Pro-Ride front suspension. Polaris got this very right for 2012 and it works just great on the trails. You'd forgo the tricked out Pro-Ride external shock rear suspension, but definitely go with the Rush-based Pro-Ride "short" chassis and its extra rigid construction. And, since you'd want overall simplicity underneath you, you'd skip the Pro-Ride and go with the Indy-proven coupled skid. Then you'd design some stylish bold bodywork and slap the Indy name on it.
That's pretty much what Polaris engineering did as the company reintroduces the Indy name and applies it to a truly sweet sport play cruiser. We expect this Indy will be a direct competitor to Ski-Doo's TNT 600 models. The new Indy 600 comes in two versions. The base Indy 600 comes with a 120-inch Shockwave track and Ryde FX MPV shocks. For a few bucks more (pricing is be announced), there is an Indy 600 SP, which gives you an upgrade to the bit more aggressive Hacksaw pattern track, Fox IFP gas shocks and Polaris' new Pro Steer skis. Plus, the SP also adds new one-piece hooked handlebars. The Indy 600 SP should be an absolute dandy for pure sport riding this upcoming season.
