Well.......it looks like this thread is progressing along quite nicely...
Owning a Mach Z is like having a totally hot girlfriend,................ all of your friends want to see it and check it out, they all want to know what it is like to ride it, but if they only knew how much time and money it takes to keep one up, they would call you a fool!

I in no way want a turbo.  Sacrificing reliability and longevity.  850 is pretty sweet so far

Heck, I don't think I've put the trigger to the bar in three years on my 600ACE.   Turbo rocket don't interest me....but I still like to see the go-fast sleds for those crazy enuff to use them.  Still don't think my nephew got that brown stain off his seat when I tried out his 800Ptek thing.

I'll wager doo does at least 2 years current power level, bumps hp by 5% , a whopping 8 hp, for year 3, then year 4 is the year the force fed option rolls out., with a twist, force fed sleds are lower displacement. right at 200 hp.

Just bring back the Mach Z............

They repurchased the patent for the name a few years ago for a reason.




Guys want a factory turbo....why?

If ya want one, go out and buy an aftermarket set up.....I don't see any of you doing that yet....

So why should Ski-Doo do it?

Guys cry about zip ties on the limiter straps, color options, and other lame things..... imagine the crying that will be done if they release one


I say keep the reliability up, and if guy's want a big H
P sled, they should build one, not buy one

19k for a sled?? Didn't know the price sheet was out? Let's keep this simple guys. I'm sure a lot of Can Am owners said they didn't need a turbo model also but guess what they got one.

Sidewinder and T Cat come to mind. Factory warranty is nice to have.

Doo swung towards reliability vs big HP the past couple releases.....that is a good direction to go as it keeps guy's being brand loyal when the product they purchase lasts.....

Guys complain about the price of the new sleds as it is, imagine the cost of a boosted sled..... guy's claim they will buy, but 90% won't open their check books
