– A Budget Friendly Trail Sled
Great winter experiences with friends and family don’t have to cost a lot. Riders looking for a comfortable, confident ride down the trail or off the beaten path need look no further than the new Renegade Sport. With its hard-to-miss sweet spot for riding comfort and capability, the Sport offers riders all the fun at a price that keeps life balanced.
With addition of the Renegade Sport 600 ACE into the REV Gen4 platform for 2020, riders of this budget-friendly snowmobile get all the benefits of the industry’s most advanced platform. The open cockpit concept lets riders choose how aggressive or relaxed the ride should be, and the intuitive handling gives riders incredible precision through any trail terrain. The incredibly responsive nature of the REV Gen4 platform inspires confidence in every rider from beginner to expert and allows them to tackle new terrain as their skill grows.
Features like the multiple driving modes in the 600 ACE and easily added LinQ System 1+1 seat allow the Renegade Sport to convert to any riding ability or style in seconds. With advanced features like iTC (Intelligent Throttle Control) with selectable driving modes on the 600 ACE, the 2020 Renegade Sport has a broad appeal to a wide range of riders.
Designed to be the ultimate handling trail snowmobile, the trail version of the 4th generation REV platform is designed around the rider with a narrow, compact design giving the rider more freedom to move and influence the sled. More centralized masses (especially side-to-side) make the vehicle ultra-responsive to rider input, delivering more fun per ride.
Adding to the stability and confidence of this model is the longer 137” track length and capable SC-5M rear suspension. The added length bridges bumps, enables occasional off-trail rides and offers a great balance of comfort and performance. Traction is via a soft lug Cobra track, adding to the overall capability is a variety of snow conditions from hard packed to fresh and fluffy.
With the transition to the REV Gen4 platform the Renegade Sport 600 ACE is now fitted with the latest RAS 3 front suspension. It delivers precise, predictable handling and outstanding bump absorption, even in harsh conditions, with state-of-the-art unequal length A-arm front suspension. Rider favorite Pilot 5.7 skis up front are a dual-keel/single runner design for aggressive bite in corners and virtually no darting.
Helping keep costs down are Ski-Doo’s Motion Control shocks, front and center. These are sealed low-pressure gas cell shocks that are high quality, high value and known for their long-term dependability, reduced up-front cost, reduced maintenance and extended long term consistency. On the rear arm we find a high quality KYB high pressure gas shock in this critical location for excellent bump absorption and more consistent rider comfort.
Adding to the ride comfort is a new Trail Performance Seat, narrow at the front for easier rider movement during aggressive movement and cornering while wider and flat at the back for improved comfort over the long hauls.
Other key features include a one piece hooked aluminum handlebar and a new for 2020
4.5-inch digital display LCD gauge cluster with flatter viewing angle for an easy-to-read info center whether standing or sitting.
Now for the real reason why this is one of the industry’s very best snowmobiles offered at ANY price – the legendary Rotax 600 ACE engine. This is the industry’s fuel economy leader at up to 28 mpg. The in-line EFI four-stroke twin is now up to 62 horsepower and delivers ultra-smooth and quiet power delivery. Long term it is an ultra-low maintenance design, and runs perfectly fine on cheaper 87-octane fuel. Includes drive-by-wire intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) with three driving modes (Sport, Standard, ECO) and a throttle block that can be rotated on the handlebars. You can select a throttle mode to best match the skill and experience level of a new or youth rider, making this machine perfectly suited for families or those looking for the latest in technology without breaking the bank.
The 2020 Ski-Doo Renegade Sport 600 ACE is perhaps the very best trail snowmobile ever offered in the history of snowmobiling. And with a retail price of only $9,549 it is a sled that most anyone can afford.
