So, who's interested in a high-tech, 90 horsepower four-stroke? We had a big internal debate about the potential draw for this motor when we got a sneak preview, and who might buy it. Your toughts?

Clearly Doo has no intention of ever offering a 4 stroke that will compete with its precious etecs.

A high tech 90hp triple? I realize the Phazer market is low hanging fruit, but really...is that what the people are looking for?

Oh well, glad mine only has 10,000 miles on it...not going to be in need of a replacement any time soon anyway.

Looks interesting for high mileage trail riding if it falls into the entry level price range....i've talked to a couple of dealers that would like more lower price point offerings.

yep, believe it or not, there are a lot of folks out there that feel running our trails at a safe manageable speed is easily accomplished with 90 hp. It was a good move to fill in a certain niche in the market. And with gas prices rising everytime someone burps, it's nice to see a manny put extra effort into that.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

BNG's and a heavy slow 3 cyl with 10 more hp than Yamahas twin and the doo faithful mess the front of their boxers. Seriously, who buys a sled for mileage? Ski-Doo. The Prius of sleds.

I think there are more than a couple of smurfs here who buy sleds based on some kinda mileage reasoning...

Not nearly as gay as a nytro... can't even think about being seen on one of those ugly fukkers.

I love my 2007 renegade 19 mpg, never a problem.120 hp is enough.
90hp not enough
