It shows two clips of the letters N and R with what looks like a pull out shifter under them. I guess that that is neutral and reverse. Than could mean a new high performance quad, of maybe a high performance 4 stroke snowmobile. The timing of the release is more typical of snowmobiles, but there have been rumors of both. Guess we'll have to wait until Aug. 5. The secret almost always leaks out sooner.
But, why would they introduce it so late in the PWC season? I mean, August 2nd or 3rd?? I forget the exact date, I've always been bad with dates. Although, its hard to say, because that could be considered a mid year release for a PWC...hmmm, the plot thickens.....
Word has it tho, that Polaris is working on a sled VERY similar to the Doo REV, and based on what I've seen in the clip, and with people "in the know", thats what the MSX is going to be..... with a rather M-10-ish rear suspension....no word on the front suspension tho....
they very may well be working on a new sled, and i hope they are, but do not forget that the NXR is a very old concept and it has failed several times. All i know is that Polaris registered the name "Polaris MSX" as a watercraft vehicle for commercial sale. This is the formal classification given to the trademark that was registered with the gov't around April 24, 2002. Personally i dont think its a snowmobile, and I think its against the law to register a trademark illegally. So to me all the signs point to PWC.

Man.......I suddenly became hungry for a bratwurst.
Watercraft have forward and reverse. The only somewhat new thing would be nuetral. So who knows. I am guessing based on information here and the one photo I saw looks like a sponson, that its a watercraft.
The now if you look at the site again you will see some other pics. All the site says is to check back Aug 5 to see the future. when you look at the site you will see pictures of the head lights for the Predator atv the fuel tank for the new Victory bike and the badge for the MSX watercraft. There is also talk of another utility model atv with a 600 single bigbore in the sportsman chassis and also talk of a manual trans similar to the expedition with a 500 cc or larger motor in the sportsman chassis. Yes polaris is releasing 3 new machines for sure,Predator sport atv,MSX pwc, Victory sportmodel bike.
I think that SnoRat just hit the nail on the head.
I believe that his predictions are correct and I'm very curious about the new Victory bike. The fuel tank cap looks like one from a sportbike, but when you look where the seat meets the fuel tank the transition between the two is not like on sport bikes, it pretty smooth. HMMMM?
