Here’s the latest on the 3/4 sized snowmobiles coming this fall from Premier Recreational Products of Holly, Michigan.
According to Chris Bell, President of RPC, they have been setting up dealers across the snow states who are listed on their website as they become authorized. These dealers are currently taking orders on the 2010 Premier Enforcer 200 and Enforcer 300 models, for fall delivery. Some of these dealers currently have pre-production units on display, spread out across North America. You can check the Premier dealer locator on their website for dealers that have units on display right now.
The Enforcer 200 is a low 30’s mph performer and is priced at $3670.00 and the Enforcer 300 is a low 40’s performer and is priced at $4289.00. Both machines are liquid cooled and both use radiator/fan combinations so that these machines can be ridden in low snow conditions without overheating issues.
For 2010 there will be two performance options, the Enforcer 200 and Enforcer 300. There are 3 color options: A Candy-Apple Red and Black combination, an All- Black and a very limited Pink option.
Bell tells SnowTech their sleds are fully EPA certified, which was a non-issue due to their four-stroke design. Owners should expect great reliability, quiet operation and smooth power delivery with good fuel economy as well.
One of the biggest issues Premier has been dealing with is the impression that these are “China” snowmobiles. Bell tells us his own team completes the final assembly and conducts quality control themselves at their Holly, Michigan location using “Globally Sourced Parts and Components, including U.S. domestic content”.
How heavy of a rider can they handle, and are there any optional springs? Bell tells SnowTech his staff are all 230+ pounds and they have been riding the prototypes for two seasons of testing. These machines are designed to be a modern day Enticer, Puma type machine and experience, basically a smaller and less expensive machine that is designed to be enjoyed by the whole family. They currently plan to be able to accommodate riders ranging from 75 to 230 pounds.
