No kidding there.

It is crazy that is announced before the majority of the riding public had a chance to use them in real-world riding yet ???

The amazing thing is how can they make this decision based on pre production sleds. Just take a look at the changes AC has made to the F-7. The fact of the matter is that they had there mids made up even befor they rode them. It was the right decision politically for them. What a scam. Wait untill spring and then the true sled of the year will be known. :cussing:

It's no different than Motor Trend with their car of the year. Yammi got it for being innovative. It has nothing to do with how fast it really is, or how well built it is.

Remember, even the Chevy Vega took automobile of the year back in it's day. :0:

??? We can all read about the innovations..........but what good are they if we don't know how they work!!!They should put 1000 miles on them first then name sled of the year......which innovations workied the best, the most reliable, comfortable, and on and on....not everyone buys a sled based on how fast it is..... they should determine it on real world miles after the season is over..... just my 2 cents again :D

You will have no arguement from me in THAT regard snowmonkey. I agree fully. All the innovation in the world isn't worth a cent if the machine is always broke.

Wow.. I must have completley missed the boat.. It seems to me that RX realy wasen't hyped like all the others.. I got tired of seeing the Ski-doo commercials on TV for the REV that are in the James Band movie... ;) Maybe I missed the Boat on the Yamaha RX.. From the pictures I saw, It realy didn't look to much differnt... BUt then again I guess the REV and FC kinda reminded me of last years Vipers... So hey, Condrats to YAMAHA. But i still aient selling my kitty!! :D

I think this year we need to have a SnowmobileWorld Reader's Choice Sled of the Year.

But only after the snow is flying. maybe in Jan.
