#23526345 Bring back the triples!

Posted by Skipperbath on 22 October 2020 - 08:38 PM

Bring back the 1200 triple by adding 1 cylinder to de 850. Shave down a couple cc for rounding purpose and you would get a 230hp mill.

I too miss my triple days... and day dreaming in class.

As for a 1200 triple, you’d be looking at an engine making between 232-250HP based on Ski-Doo numbers. It would be absolutely nuts haha. Stuff it into the widebody Gen-4 platform and call it a day.

There has been tripples available since at least 2009. The new tripples are infinitely more reliable than the old 2 bangers. :)

In all seriousness why ? Any more tightening of the emission regs 2 strokes are done they barely get by today.

If I was running the ship I'd be looking advancing light weight 4 strokes that can be used across platforms.

New four stroke triples more reliable than old two stroke triples? Obviously. However, they don’t have the same sound, same power delivery, same ease of maintenance. Pretty much nothing else compares. A new triple could have similar reliability to a new 600cc twin engine, a lot of which get 10000+kms. Two strokes will not be done anytime soon regarding emissions. They are always finding ways to make these machines cleaner. Until a four stroke comes close to the weight of a two stroke at a similar displacement, and can produce the same power reliably, there will always be a demand for two strokes.
