What you described is very similar to a sled in the Lynx lineup that I hope they bring over next year. The Xterrain RE Turbo is 43" stance, 900R, 2" lug, 145" track with PPS3 skidMy prediction is we will see very little change. The G4 and suspensions are solid and recently updated. The engines are again solid. As for a 650 I don’t see that. BRP has never hung their hat on being the most powerful. The 600R is smooth powerful reliable. I just don’t see it.
They could however be feverishly working on a new display. The past and current displays have been flops. In my opinion just go back to dial guages for the base with an optional new premium GPS display that can compete with Polaris.
As far as a new model. I would like to see a 137” 42” stance Backcountry. 1.75 lug C Motion. But I doubt that’s gonna happen.

The triples and 4 strokes can’t weigh any different I wouldn’t think. Yet no matter how much we dream the triple 2 strokes are definitely a thing of the past unfortunately. I think an 809 could be shoe horned into a wide body though! I have an old mach 809 and there is still nothing that sounds better at 0* F than a two stroke triple!Well my prediction or love to see, a 1000 cc 2 stroke triple e- tech with 240-250 hp in a gen 4 called a Mach Z .
That would be true legend. But I'm dreaming, I'm sure there are many out there like me that every time I hear a triple two stroke you get a little excited.
I started riding when a muscle sled had three carbs and pipes under the hood not a bunch of sensors. I know it's technology but it's not the same to us old folks. Give me a big triple with big power and I'll deal with it for trail riding no matter what it weighs.
YES!!! That sled sounds amazing; I have had my eye on it for some time. I have always thought a 4-Stroke BackCountry would be awesome and would not be all that difficult to build. But why build a one-off that might have unsupported issues when you can buy right from the factory?! Especially considering you can tune it and make a mean runner that can handle some deep snow. I have a RAVE on the way but would trade up to that in a heartbeat.What you described is very similar to a sled in the Lynx lineup that I hope they bring over next year.

Mountain riders don’t care about wind protection. Remember, the G4 was designed first and foremost to be a mountain sled, first of its kind. Now us trail riders get the “ conversion “.How about some plastics that actually are aerodynamic enough to keep us warm. The G4 MXZ is the coldest sled ever. Seems to me this was a terrible mistake. What do I know?
I’d love to see a 700. But I really doubt we’ll see it. The sales numbers just wouldn’t be there. Polaris still offers 600s right? Haven’t checked on the 22s…I can see doo revisiting the 700cc market now that the 800 class has become 850s, which widened the gap between the 6 and 8s. Technically, the poo 650 would be classed as a 700 anyway so why not put the poo to bed with a new 700 instead of a new 650 and keep the 600R to dominate that class on its own.
With the Mach Z a one year sled, for 23 it would be easy to continue that premium price segment with a 900T Lynx 137, which would really peak my interest.
I can't see doo continueing with their current attempt of a premium gauge setup. Put it to bed, and do it right learning from the competition. With a new bigger gauge setup could bring a few new plastics followed with a new LED lighting setup.
The difference between the 600R & 850 is more like 35-40 hp.Yeah I could be wrong, but thinking back into the 90s, the 700 class did have its day of popularity. This was in a time where the 800s were into a different class in the triple era so the twins were becoming a new trend of light weight into smaller packages. The new 700 twins were probably more driven from the 600 crowd upgrading then the 800s downgrading.....Few years later, the 800s moved to the twins and I recall not much difference between a good running 700 vs a run of the mill twin 800, which I think was the start of eliminating the 700 class.
Fast forward to today, there is probably around 50 hp difference between the 850 and 600R in the exact same sled chassis and almost same weight. Probably not a huge cost throwing in 700cc jugs just to fill a gap Poo is trying to fill and close in around that 140 hp range. Might not make total sense, but sometimes it doesn't have to and will still sell very well, so in that case it could make sense.
I don't think you can get a 600cc poo anymore in a premium model sled. Would need to move into their budget line, which is a pretty old 600.
I think we got that already with the flatter turning chassis but I could be wrong. I am guessing one more year at least with the current chassis, maybe 2024 or 2025 we will get a new chassis that sheds at least 20 lbs.1999 - ZX
2003 - Rev
2008 - xp
2013 - XS/XM
2023 - G5?
2026 - ?
Pattern looks clear to me. I think it’s gonna be another Rev-xs/xm case for 2023.
And that will be my last skidoo, likely sled in general. I will be 53 this year, have raced motocross for many years and flat out will not ride a four stroke sled, they are just too heavy in the whoops and corners. If we don't see four strokes at two stroke weight (like motocross bikes) I will buy the last year 2 stroke and ride it until I age out, it is a shame because ETEC has the potential to even be road legal, such is life.BRP said this will be the last of 2 stroke technology
What I think is going to happen is they’re going to release an electric sled for 2023 or 2024Its here. Prepare to have your arms ripped off......not.

Actually I hope ski doo does, I don’t really want a 600 again for my next, and my dad isn’t going to let me get an 850(which I get, as I am light, not that strong, and I’m still getting into the sport with my own sled, it’ll be my third season next year. So I would kill myself on it) so a 700 or 750 would be perfect for me. Though the 2 stroke era is coming to an end, the current E-tec and efi engines will likely be the last generation engine. When ski doo releases an EV, they’ll upgrade it until it has better range than the ICE, then all ICEs will slowly disappear. It would be weird seeing an electric mountain sled...Skidoo should skip the 650 route and simply add a 700 to compliment the 600 and 850, stop messing around, many of us have been waiting for a REV based 700 for nearly 20 years. A 145 hp 700 would be delicious, cat had a 140 hp 700 in 2003 I cant imagine 145 is not a reliable figure with modern tech. Heck make it spring order only even, bet they would move a bunch.
