Having ridden Cats until this year, I have to say buying this sled was the best decision I have ever made. I only made three trips to Michigan and put on 1100 miles in what was a short season. This sled is the best ride I've ever experienced. The torque of the 1200 is what this sled is all about. Corner to corner acceleration is just what I was looking for. Gas mileage was 15-17 mpg. Noticed the rpm was falling off after my last ride, but I have a new Dalton primary spring to install for next year as it has been noted in this forum the OEM spring starts to give up after a thousand miles. Looking forward to next year and a lot more smiles per mile.
