With the all-new Rotax 850 engine, BRP is launching the second generation of its now legendary E-TEC technology. This engine is new from the ground up. Key E-TEC engine technologies are refined, while new technologies are added to the most advanced snowmobile engine ever released bringing riders four key benefits: More power & responsiveness, greater efficiency & durability.
The Rotax 850 E-TEC II engine delivers a class-leading 165 hp (10 hp more than the 800R E-TEC) with over 106 ft-lbs of arm-stretching torque. The new powerpack’s responsiveness is what makes these sleds so much fun. Power comes instantly and forcefully, but can be easily modulated. You can lift or plant the skis at will. Pushing further, engineers integrated state-of-the-art 4-stroke and diesel technologies for new standards in performance, efficiency and reliability. New booster injectors enhance throttle response along with a shorter intake tract for wicked-fast acceleration.
