2020 Backcountry X-RS 850 E-TEC®

Description

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.

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.

KYB PRO SHOCKS

PRO-LEVEL SHOCKS

Designed to the same high standards as the MXZx 600RS race sled - so you know they're extremely capable and durable for control in the toughest conditions. Remote reservoir design for performance and they are rebuildable/revalvable. Easy Adjust compression damping knob requires no tools; rebound adjustments are standard on front shocks also.

S RUNNING BOARDS

ROOM TO ROAM

Designed for aggressive stand-up riding, they are flatter for most of their length, wider and strong. Thicker aluminum sheet (3 mm vs. 1.8 mm), plus front and rear reinforcements to withstand tough landings.

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.

PDRIVE CLUTCH

QUICK, EFFICIENT, EASY

A major factor in the quickness of REV sleds is the new pDrive clutch. Fast and friction-free dual rollers transfer torque in place of traditional sliding buttons on this 100% 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.

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).

ULTIMATE COLOR

EYE-CATCHING BODY ARMOR

Striking Lava Red glossy coloration with high-end protective panel wrap to resist scratches and blemishes keeps your sled looking showroom new.

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.
