To kick-off Ski-Doo snowmobiles’ 50th anniversary celebrations, BRP unveiled cleaner and quieter engine choices and additional snowmobile platforms, the company said in a Jan. 31 press release.
This winter, the company will be allowing consumers to test ride two new engines and platform technologies: the next generation of advanced lightweight two-stroke engine, the Rotax 600 H.O. E-TEC available in the 2009 Ski-Doo MX Z XTM model; and the Rotax 4-TEC 1200 engine available in the 2009 MX Z GSX and GTX models.
“The new Rotax 4-TEC 1200 engine is BRP’s first performance four-stroke engine designed specifically for Ski-Doo snowmobiles,” said Jose Boisjoli, BRP president and CEO.
In 2009, BRP will expand its REV-XP platform, introducing the REV-XR version for touring and performance models and the REV-XU for utility models. The REV-XR platform is available on select MX Z, GSX and GTX models. The REV-XU is a lightweight utility variant of the REV-X platform and comes standard on the Expedition model.
