One thing that I've never understood though is the logic in picking a Snowmobile of the Year before the season even starts. Although it makes good reading, it has no credibility and means absolutely nothing to me. I think everyone can look back at former "Sleds of the Year" and go, HUH?
My comments are geared at the magazine, not the sled.
The RX-1 may have the best engine that may change snowmobiles in the future but as far as sled design goes. REV hands down. The RX-1 is just a clever looking chassie but from what i read its got the same handling as the CK3.
With today's politically correct slant on everything, if the REV had a 4-stroke motor it would have won by a landslide. But still, a one-off proto and a bunch of sales hype does not make a Sled of the Year.

I don't think so! Nothing handles as bad as that pig!
I know that in 98 it was the ZR600 and in 99 thats what i bought......(myfirst new sled).....and it was far from what it was pumped up to be. If I had done my own research I would have bought a polaris 700 twin......by far the best twin for those years. I have to be a little honnest.....I do like some of Yamahas stuff and I am a little worried for when I line up with an RX1......Regardless of what sno tech writes about the ZR900. Good luck to all of those brave people who put out the big bucks for a concept and alot of hype........and if it turnes out to be a hot performance sled than you can expect to see alot of people jump ship (maybe me??).
