I have heard countless reports of test rides of the new Revs but nothing on the Firecats or RX-1s.  I actually heard that Yamaha has displayed the RX-1 in a couple locations but would not permit test rides.  I have also not heard of any Firecat test rides.  What is up with that?

There are more revs available, ski-doo ran a test run on the  production line, I believe there are about 60 of them out and about.  There are only a couple hand built RX-1's available, not sure on the firecat, but I don't believe cat has ever offered demo rides anyway.

Is it possible that Doo is letting everyone hype the REV and get hooked on it before they tell you what it's gonna cost???
Think about it.

We know what its going to cost.  Its not a suprize.  I went to my dealer and priced out a 600HO X package yellow and orange for 11500.00 CDN.

Bad news, was out to Fernie on the weekend and there was a 900 1M Cat outclimbing most of the $25000 mod sleds, it might be bad news for us doo riders unless this new 800 H.O. is spectacular

Doo is nothing less.

Do you know for sure if the 900 cat was stock.

Because I find it hard to belive that a stock machine could beat mods.  Those things are awsome.

It was bone stock, I wouldn't have believed it either unless I saw it!

Sorry guys I am having a hard time with all the hype on the new sleds. If the rev and the firecat are so great then why is polaris winning races with the old edge chassis?

I think the sleds look nice , but the rest is mostly type to get us to buy new sleds.

There is an F5 sitting at the local dealer a friend told me today.  I'm going down tommorow to take a look.  Don't think they would allow test rides and even if they did there is no snow to do it on.
