What is everyone going to order for 2024?

I wasn't planning to order a 2024 but I have not been in love with my 2023 XRS 137" since I picked it up. I have spent far too much time on 146" + sleds to ride a 137" anymore and I do not wish to own another R-Motion sled.

So I have ordered a beige Backcountry X with 10.5" display. I will save the money over a Backcountry XRS and instead purchase a 42" ras X upgrade kit and add my own shocks.

Not exactly what I want but it will be close. I really wanted a backcountry Turbo 850 as my primary sled but they didn't put the turbo on it. Likely for 2025 just to soak me for more money lol.

I am ordering parts for my 500ss to keep indefinitely because the price to mile ratio on these sleds in these winters is insane!

Why not the Xterain? it comes with the 42" front end? I have the 10.5" display and not happy with it.

Scored a 2023 Renegade for a nice discount just before the spring model release. I paid my $100 deposit to wait and see if anything crazy awesome came out for the 2024 lineup. But since it’s pretty underwhelming for renegade, I’m going to complete purchase of the 2023. Very pumped to pick it up tomorrow.

Nothing. I’ve been wanting a turbo 850 for several years now, and they’ve FINALLY come out with one that I literally couldn’t be more disinterested in. One color choice (that I dislike), in one model, that comes with a bunch of other crap that I don’t want or need. The last thing I’m doing is buying another 137” sled too. I know some people like them, but it’s a hinderance for me for trail riding. Yes, I’ve ridden both back to back several times and the 129” clearly handles and performs way better.


I’m still disappointed with how my ‘22 Renegade rides and performs after every ounce of advice taken. I believe my best course of action to actually have fun riding again, without feeling like I’m riding a bulldozer, is to sell this sled- buy a pre-RasX sled, and put a turbo on the dang thing if I really want that. Clearly Doo is only interested in selling this new sled to people who can afford the best of the best. I’m not that guy, and not willing to spend $24k on a sled just to get a turbo that they should’ve put into a sled with much less frills.

With that said, good luck to those who buy one. Meanwhile, I’ll just sit here and stew about my disappointments in all of this. Does the Polaris Boost come in a non-long track?
