Re: new sleds

To me it sounds like redline offers the greatest threat. It has the looks, the economical 4-stroke and the power (from what I hear). The model that amazes me though is the 1300 revolution (2-stroke)that supposedly has 200 hp. That'd be nice try out.

Re: new sleds

I think the new Scorpions have got an excellent chance.

Re: new sleds

I think that the only company that has the resources is Redline... this is just a side-job for them (they build baja vehicles and such). As for the other companies, snowmobiles are their main source of income so a couple bad years--they're through! Not to mention the price difference. Redline is way more competitive than any of the others ($12,500 vs $17,000).

My opinion...

Re: new sleds

My opinion is that until they can come up with some sleds that the general snowmobiling population can afford, they really won't be a threat. The average new snowmobile buyer is going to pay between $4k and $7k for a sled, and that is what the big offer. I think that a very small percentage of riders are going to be willing to pay evan $12k for a sled, yet alone $18k or higher. I'm sure that companies like redline, Scorpian, etc. aren't considered a threat for just that reason.
