BRP introduced the new 2012 Ski-Doo line at today. What’s new?

rMotion rear suspension: All-new rear suspension. Reduced transfer enhances sled handling even further. Its motion ratio, additional travel and separate spring and shock motion ratios mean the rMotion is supple in small and medium bumps while maintaining extreme capacity in large ones. Plus, new adjustments have a greater range of effect. (Available on MX Z X-RS and MX Z X models.) rMotion Quick Adjust system: Rear spring preload and rear shock compression damping controls are moved to the running boards to quickly and easily fine-tune for riding style, load and trail conditions. The spring preload adjustment has infinite settings and increases the range of adjustment by 40% over the standard rMotion.

Freeride offering expanded, promoted to model: 2011 Summit Freeride is a full 2012 model with three packages: 154, 146 and 137. All feature the REV-XP RS chassis, KYB Pro 40 shocks. With riders’ input, BRP improved the SC- 5M-2 rear suspension: it has an even more progressive motion ratio and trenches less.

Expanded availability of the Rotax E-TEC 800R engine: With the limited first year build in the books, BRP is expanding the availability of the E-TEC 800R engine to several more sleds.

Added engine options for GSX SE model: In addition to the 4-TEC 1200 engine, the 2012 offers two new engine choices, the E-TEC 600 H.O. and the 163 horsepower E-TEC 800R.

REV-XP X Narrow and REV-XP X seats with storage: Adds 1.3 gal. (5 L) of storage to performance- oriented seat on all X-package and select Summit models.

New Spring Build Your Own Sled choices: Spring buyers of popular models can now further tailor their sleds for their riding and personal styles. New choices include track type, graphic wrap design and the rMotion Quick Adjust system.

Skandic SWT model on REV-XU platform: The Ski-Doo work sled moves to the REV-X platform and gets all its benefits, including a 52 pound (23.6 kg) weight reduction, more flexible riding position, advanced features and sophisticated styling. 100% of the 2012 Ski-Doo line-up is built on the REV-X platform.
2.5-inch (6.4-cm) lug PowderMax track. Easy Adjust on KYB PRO 40 shocks: New single knob controls compression damping on all four shocks. No tools are needed to make adjustments, even when wearing gloves.

Ski-Doo will have the 2012 snowmobiles on display in New England March 2-6. View Schedule
