Today's the day, anyone interested?
It was quite here for the reveal, I did think Polaris has been hitting a home run with their new product.
Nice sleds, turbo mtn sled will be a hit.
Why didnt they go to a Turbo for he trail?
They didn't even really do a full release in the RMK, quantities were very limited and sold out within hours. I'm sure they are limiting exposure in case there is first year teething issues.
Quite possibly giving it boost at sea level is a trial run for a flat land sled . 16 percent more power at sea level and elevation. That’s not bad when your starting off with 165-168 stock . I saw a video that made a lot of sence also. They were saying because it’s same power so same clutching also cuts down on a lot of tinkering. I honestly didn’t even think about that angle of it.
10% at sea level, then carries that same power all the way past 11,000 ft.
Oops your right I git my percent and power mixed up. It should be 16 or so Hp. So 184 - 186
Sounds about right, be interesting to see once one is on the dyno this fall.
Also saw a youtube video from Eric Woog at VOHK tuning talking about the NA 850 mountain motor having much more snap out of the hole vs the current 2021 due to the new ECM. Curious what they did since I havent really heard anyone say this about the VR1 which already has that ECM this year?
I saw that video also. I’m not sure what to make out if it. I was listening and doing other shit at same time. I’ll have to go back and watch it again and pay better attention.
Anyone have a Video of it in action or on the Dyno?
Historically dont they put the new tech on the mtn. sleds the first year?
Not really. Pro Ride, Axys & Matryx chassis all debuted as trail sleds. The 800HO debuted with the Axys trail sleds. 850 was the only recent debut that went to the whole lineup at the same release.
I can see why the turbo went to the mtn sleds though since they knew there was a HP starved audience eagerly awaiting its arrival.
Even so, the 850 RMK is hanging with, or beating the 850 turbo BRP's around here in the mtns. The Boost is just gonna lay more of a smackdown!
