Go ride 250 miles and see how he feels afterward. You bought the ski-doo - you win the whole time you are riding!I believe my brothers XF7000 is a 2015. You guys are all right when you say it pulls hard at low and mid. I've ridden it a few times. I'm hoping the 600r has similar take off and pull. I'm confident I can take it at the top end. Thanks for your input.
Tops out way less than 90 mph. Rode a brand new ‘14 back in Dec ‘13, and it couldn’t get more than 80-82mph matted for a half mile or more, on a pristine hard packed groomed RR Bed in northern ME! Got there quick…but that 80-82 was it. 600R should top it easily.I put 5400 miles on my 600R.
I rode a 144" Viper for less than an hour.
The 600 is a quick little sled, but i only had IceAttack track while he had 144''long 1.5''lug track to grab so it was night & day traction wise.
600 is quick & responsive.
The Viper has tons of low end grunt & pulls awesome in mid range.
They are soooo different, i'm not sure what to say about it.
If we lined up, i'd say the Viper would pull away then the little 6 would come around.
Now some guys were able to do minor clutching to make the Viper a 95 mph sled, but i'd say it tops at about 90 or less.
For some reason Yamaha let Arctic Cat use their ECU on it so it's not dialed in as good as the Nytro's were.
That said, the little 6 will hang then overtake the "7000 class" 4-TEK or VIPER
