Yeah it was pretty cool. They had the cutaway chassis there and the pre production sled in the other pics. I was there for about 20 minutes looking at it, and in that time they must have started that sled up about 15 times, revved it up and shut it down... then a couple of minutes later, some guy would come by and say "start it up.. I wanna hear that baby run"
The pics came out a little dark when I uploaded them... they were origionally 470K, so I had to make them smaller to put on the web.. If you save them to your hard drive and use an image progam to lighten them up a little, you can really see into the cutaway areas alot better.
To me it sounds just like a street bike. Definately not a two stroke sound, and different than a four stroke quad. Granted they had the belt off of it so that they could rev it up without having the track on a stand, and having the track spin with everyone around it, but it sounded snappy and quick to rev... like I said, really similar to a crotch rocket. I cant wait to see one on the snow in person... maybe I can convince someone to let me take one for a spin, too
When i went to the Yamaha show I was think of buying an RX1, after seeing the prototypes & the cutaway especially the cutaway that was the final straw to make me want to try this sled. It sounds just like a big displacement street bike.
