my buddy ordered a lynx, i see a few 900t's on the trails.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.
Snowbike only works in deep powder, not on trails. What is interesting is a quad (not ATV) converted into a sled.I was thinking of making a snow bike out of my old Honda 250.

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

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.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.
