I think I fell in love with a ski-doo too.

It does get pricey but so worth it.
I’m toying with selling the wife’s 17 Renegade 850 since used prices are going so well. She’ll get my 18 Rene 850 and I’ll likely Spring Check if I can decide which one.

Has anyone tried an Exosled? Seems to have some of the fun of a snowbike but should be trail legal as it bolts onto a sled. Kind of expensive unless it really ratchets up the fun (~$3000 USD)

EDIT:
It looks really fun. Not sure how it would feel going fast or in a chopped up trail.

Cool idea, :sneaky: a sled you can lean, I wonder if I could do that to a sno-scoot

Does this post belong in this thread or EV's? Taiga is taking pre-orders for their electric sleds. Half of the pre-orders for the $20,000 sleds come from people that have never owned a snowmobile before. Maybe that's because they are 650 lbs with a max range of 140 km which likely means a realistic range of <50 km. Ugh. I'm glad they're trying and canadian, but that is going to be a crap experience for the buyers.

Snowbike only works in deep powder, not on trails. What is interesting is a quad (not ATV) converted into a sled.

I don't think I'd like that thing. Get it in any snow and you will be stuck. Not enough traction or float to run hydro cuts. No way the clubs will let it on the trails.

Well not quite. Take the Atlas for example as that's the 137" trail sled: 544lbs for base or 597lbs for "performance" higher range model. That's ready to ride. A comparable gas model 4-stroke lets say a G4 Skidoo Renegade 900T is around the same power ('22 is 180hp, older one is 150hp) and is easily 550lbs, then you're adding another 60+lbs for fuel. A 137" Yamaha or Arctic Cat turbo 4-stroke rated at 180hp (does more like 200hp though) doesn't list weight but is commonly known to be over 600lbs, plus again another 60lbs of fuel.
I often ride 250km+ days but many many riders don't break the 140km daily range Taiga states. They also state the range is in ideal conditions but also it's been tested to often be around that much even in bitter cold.
So really, it's a solid decent attempt in my opinion. Personally I smash the Ontario moguls most rides and won't be leaving a 2-stroke because of that but I'm not their market.
