WTF is Polaris thinking by dropping the Pro-X line and not offering the new Fusion in anything smaller than a 900? Are they retarded? Do the unchanged '05 Edge XC's suddenly posess better handling and suspension simply because of the BNG? other thing, if this Fusion chassis has been in development for 5 years like they say, then why the he11 didn't they race test it like Ski-doo? I bet it isn't up to the task. So basically if you want a new Polaris you either pony up $9000+ or buy a '01 Edge with BNG!

Who would have guessed Polaris would fall from grace so hard, so fast. It's like they are aiming for Yamaha's position in sales! They better hope the quads keep selling.

I think they are trying to make an "all-in-one" type of machine with the Fushion. Seems like they are worried more about production costs of making many different types of sleds for different riders. They seem to be trying to appeal to everyone with one sled. I will wait to see how this thing performs before saying anything negative, but I have to agree with you that it appears to be a mistake.

I'd be willing to bet, though, that the future will see this sled offered with other engines and performance packages. It almost has to be.

And that's fine but what do they plan to sell this year?

Polaris is full of poop with the 5 years in development line. Had it been around for that long then it would have been intro'd with some more engines than just a 900. Cat did it with the Firecat, not that hard.

Really.. that's funny because weren't we all told by Polaris that the fallig rate front suspension, and longer wheelbase on the XC were based towards cruising and stability? Couldhave sworn that is why the Pro-X was designed in the first place, you know, all that stiffer, more durable chassis talk. Oh, and that the first two year Edge based 440's kept folding in half. But hey, if BNG's and the salesman's word works for you then have at it!

Ya Rider the Prox's were even better at it..but unessessary for what's required to beat the competition which consists mainly of guys like Loud who spends most of their Bighorn trip staring at the aftermath of a miniature sno slide.....he looked mesmerized
