The 2-stroke is not dead! If anything Polaris believes it is healthier than ever in the snowmobile biz. It’s betting on it!The newest technologically enhanced version of the iconic Indy brand will go viral for 2014.
Last year saw the intro of the 600 Indy and Indy SP, but now there are 8 additional Indy models. These are all 2-strokes and Polaris says they can easily meet the EPA regulations with the amount of credits and clean EFI sleds in its lineup.
The most anticipated new 2-stroke trail sled is the new 800cc Indy and there are Limited Edition models that come with the 1-inch lugged HackSaw track, Fox shocks and one-piece hooked handlebars. But on the other end of the engine spectrum there is also the new 550 Indy 121-inch, the top value trail sled in Polaris’ line, replacing the Shift that sold for $6,399. This one gets a new CVTech primary and secondary clutch system. There’s a bevy more Indy sleds including an all new crossover Voyager line that has both the 550 fan and 600 CFI motors available.
Both the 600 and 800 Rush will also still be available and these and several other sleds will be available in Limited Edition spring models. The Rush Pro-R comes with the WE compression and rebound adjustable shocks and a deeper 1.352 lug Cobra track and Rox riser below the bars too.
Don’t forget to check out the new for 2014 Switchback Assault 600 with the same W.E. needle shocks and lightweight rotor and jackshaft as the 800 as well as many more new updates from Polaris.
