Anteater: I agree with you on the windshield. Yamaha & Arctic Cat had the handlebar mounted windshields. "Had" being the operative word. With that windshield and the narrow body work, I think the wind protection will suck. Those little clear knee deflectors look like after thoughts. Something like the water wings they had on the A frame Safaris. What are the chances the clowns that designed that piece of junk were involved with designing the REV?    


Also the snowflap deal will probably get froze up and screw up in the real world.

I hope it is nearly the same as a 700, as I really wanted to buy a sled with the 700 motor after hearing good things about it......

Well about the 600 vs. 700.  My brother has a MXZ 700 and I have a MXZ X 600.  I weigh 160lbs. and he weighs about 180lbs.  And they are way too close.  I'll beat him just cause of the weight difference.  But once we get near 80 mph, he will go by.  So, I think that the new 600 HO will be one helluva fast sled.  I would say it will be in the 120 hp range.

A lot of the 800's arent making a true 135 HP. In reality the Series III 600 makes 104 - 106 so if they did there homework you may see a true 114-116. That would put it right with the Pol 600 which is good company. Remember all the hype when the viper came out and people were saying 135 horses. It turned out to be 120- 122.
