Ski-Doo snowmobiles are built on the Rev-X platform, a strong, lightweight chassis that is reinforced in critical areas and equipped with wide running boards, extra legroom and seating that adapts to all riders for all types of riding. Ski-Doo can customize frames for extreme uses, such as racing and deep-snow riding.

Rotax 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines incorporate E-TEC and Power T.E.K. technology to deliver up to 160 horsepower. Fuel economy averages 19 miles per gallon, which is a five percent improvement over previous models. Both engines offer improved fuel efficiency that reduces oil consumption with virtually no exhaust emission, smoke or odors. The iTC throttle controls enable the engines to start on the first pull every time. These lightweight engines have low maintenance requirements and deliver best-in-class performance that exceeds industry standards.

Ski-Doo snowmobiles also feature Pilot TS skis that provide precision steering and adjust to all snow conditions with the turn of a dial. The combination of a lightweight RAS 2 front suspension and a T-Motion rear suspension with lateral flex offers precise handling and improved rider comfort, even in extreme conditions.
