ROTAX 850 E-TEC ENGINE

MORE POWER YOU CAN FEEL

The most powerful 2-stroke engine in the industry. It pumps out 10 more horsepower (165 hp) than its predecessor, but its responsiveness is what really shines. With the new pDrive primary clutch, it’s 30% quicker responding than the 800R E-TEC giving you the instant control you demand.
Observed HP measured on internal dyno test in optimal conditions for 2-stroke engines.

E-TEC SHOT STARTER

EASIEST STARTING

Push-button starting with almost no added weight. After an initial pull-start, the engine charges an ultracapacitor. Pushing the handlebar SHOT button for subsequent starts uses energy stored in the ultracapacitor to turn the magneto into an electric motor that rotates the flywheel, and with E-TEC technology, starts the engine. Eliminates nearly 20 lb. (9 kg) compared to conventional electric start. SHOT starting is only possible with Ski-Doo-exclusive E-TEC technology.

PDRIVE CLUTCH

QUICK, EFFICIENT, EASY

A major factor in the quickness of REV Gen4 sleds is the new pDrive clutch. Fast and friction-free dual rollers transfer torque in place of traditional sliding buttons on this 100% new clutch. The oversize rollers with needle bearings, wide flyweights and shaft-on-shaft design emphasize smooth operation and long life. Ultra-responsive shifting, impressive RPM consistency and 2.8 lb./ 1.3 kg lighter than the TRA VII.

REV Gen4 PLATFORM

NEXT GENERATION OF A LEGEND

The 4th generation of the REV platform is designed around aggressive trail riders with a narrow, compact package giving the rider more freedom to move and influence the sled. More centralized masses (especially side-to-side), light weight and industry-leading suspensions make the vehicle ultra responsive.

CMOTION REAR SUSPENSION

CROSSOVER CONTROL AND CARVING

Crossover-specific suspension uses best principles of the rMotion trail and tMotion mountain skids for confident cornering and agile boondocking – such as rigid front and rear arms with excellent weight transfer. It also features a rising-rate motion ratio, like the latest generation of Ski-Doo rear suspensions, to provide superior control and comfort. Tipped rails enable better cornering, boost top-end speed and fuel efficiency.

RAS 3 CROSSOVER FRONT SUSPENSION

CROSSOVER PRECISION

Unique geometry and steering on the RAS 3 for capability and light steering on and off trail. Optimized for crossover usage, two ski stance positions dial in handling: 40.1 in. (102 cm) or 38.4 in. (97.5 cm).

KYB PRO 36 REAR SHOCK

RACE-PROVEN CAPABILITY

Race-proven aluminum shock with no-tool compression damping adjustment. Rebuildable/revalvable design.

15 X 146 X 1.6 COBRA

EXCELLENT TRACTION ANYWHERE

This track features combination of flexible cupped lugs for superior off-trail performance and more rigid lugs for added traction on hard-packed snow.

MULTI-FUNCTION ANALOG / DIGITAL GAUGE

INFORMATION HUB

Sharply-styled analog speedometer and tachometer are complemented by a multi-function three-zone LCD screen packed with data.
