The ZR 900 is it's replacement! They run real close to one another! With clutch work it'll be neck and neck I'd bet. The one i saw on a dealer floor was a ugly looking sled though compared to last years Cross Country Version. You'll probably see a big Suzuki 4 stroke in a sled next year or the year after.
The 900 has more torque and weighs ALOT less. I also believe it has a few more ponies but I'm not sure. All the news sources have saids it's faster also. but that was the early release model. We'll have to wait and see what the full production version does but it should spank it also.
Cat publishes 150 hp for both sleds, so I guess the reduced weight would give the 900 the advantage, especially out of the hole. But my memories of my ZRT800's power still lead me to think that the ZRT might win if the distance was long enough...what do you think? I know my ZR800 is "quicker" than my ZRT, but the ZRT seemed to have more at the top-end.
