Polaris has produced a limited number of two powerful new 2007 snowmobiles so riders can see â€“ and ride â€“ next yearâ€™s performance sleds earlier than ever at Polaris dealerships and dedicated demo ride events across the snowbelt.
Polaris conducted a pilot build (an early, low-volume production run) of two all-new 600 HO engine-powered 2007 models â€“ the 600 HO IQ and 600 HO RMK 155â€. The two models will be available for demo rides at select Polaris dealerships, snowmobile rallies or races, and demo ride events in February, March and, weather permitting, April, 2006.
â€œThe response to our new 600 HO engine this winter has been tremendous,â€ said Polaris Snowmobiles General Manager Eric Lindquist. â€œBut some riders havenâ€™t yet experienced this new level of 600-class performance. So weâ€™re producing a limited number of these two 2007 models to give more riders the chance to experience the power and quickness of the 600 HO engine as well as get a taste of the many improvements and enhancements to two of our 2007 models.â€
Besides sporting a fresh aggressive look, the new 2007 600 HO IQ will be built on the innovative Polaris IQ Chassis, and will once again feature the industry-exclusive variable caster front suspension, the IQ IFS.
Other improvements include enhanced skis and mounting geometry to reduce steering effort while further sharpening the bite and handling of the IQ IFS. The 2007 600 HO IQ is also more purposeful in design, shedding pounds and focusing on the needs of the performance rider through such changes as true performance ergos which include fixed steering with standard riser and hooked bars and a digital gauge package.
The dramatically new 2007 600 HO RMK 155â€ provides more of what the mountain rider wants. With its completely revamped â€˜rawâ€™ look, the all-new 2007 RMK features a redesigned tunnel and chassis along with an innovative new cooling system â€“ the design of which is an industry first. Thereâ€™s also a fixed steering system, purpose-built ski and a whopping 25-plus pound weight reduction. Add it up, and deep snow riders will get to experience a dedicated factory mountain sled unlike any other before. Whatâ€™s more, the incredible combination of the IQ RMK Chassis, 600 HO power and all new Series 5 deep-lug 155â€-long track will make the new RMK one of the most exciting mountain sleds of the 2007 model year.
