HONDA 4 Stroke SLED ??????

Postby waitingforsnow » January 23rd, 2002, 10:01 am

Heard a rumour last week that Honda has been building a 4 stroke, 1400 cc, 150 hp sled to be on the market next winter. This would be awesome competition for the new rx-1 Yamaha. Price is supposed to be in the $18000 canadian, range.
Anybody else heard anything?

I have heard that they are planning on coming out with a four stroke. I have also heard that they don't think snowmobiles are a good money maker and would never come out with one. One of these is correct. I guess we'll find out next year.
I want to ride every day, all day, as fast as I can.

Honda has had rumours for years & years. However they did release 2 four stroke PWC's over the Summer. Atleast they're getting closer.

I would love that if Honda gets involved in snowmobiling, it could be only engines for 1 of the 4...
I like the Honda products...I've had so many Honda street bikes, atv's, motocross etc...

I can see the CBR1100XX engine in a sled!!!maximum hp's at 9,200 rpm
Or a VTR1000 engine max hp's at 8000 rpm!!!

I can't wait...

I'll wait for a 2004 sled...only have 180 miles on my 2002!!!
Need snow (lot of it) and cold...

As long as you ride!!!

honda once replied, we wont make a snowmobile unless we know it is the best out there, when asked why they dont make them.
