Cool! It will be fast enough for me and I like the functionality. I've never been one to care what others think of looks. If the utility of it works I will be happy. It will be well suited for hauling stuff into cabin in winter. I wasn't really thinking about buying another sled but wife brought up idea about getting a new one. I'm tired of tuning the old Yami's.I sat on a 600 wide track the other day at the dealer. What an awesome machine!!! If you're not concerned about looks or speed like most of the throttle jockey snowmobilers it's surely a versatile sled. The underwear storage and huge battery are nice as well as that big track and massive suspension. Also has a heated glovebox in front of the handlebars. Like you said a dual range gearbox as well. Not bad for a machine that can be had for 9-10 grand.
A buddy of mine uses this type of sled a lot. He has 2 Ski doos. He is thinking of switching to Polaris model, because as he put it " They fixed everything I dont like about my Ski doo"Ski Doo has some price competitive options but don't seem to have the additional storage of the Popo. I'm making full circle back to the Polaris.
