REV-XS Platform Expanded
The striking style, improved wind protection, added storage,
easier serviceability and more aggressive ergonomic of the REV-XS platform moves
to several new models for 2014, including the the MX Z X-RS, MX Z TNT, Renegade
Adrenaline, Renegade Backcountry, GSX LE and Expedition Sport sleds.
REV-XM Platform Expanded
The REV-XM platform and its mountain-specific features make
their way to the 2014 Freeride sled and more Summit SP models. Also included
are the revised Pilot DS 2 ski and ski spi8ndle combination for
tMotion rear suspension/FlexEdge track technology expanded
Fresh thinking in the mountain sled category makes powder
riding easier on the Freeride 154, Freeride 146, Summit SP and Summit Sport
models. tMotion suspension enables the rear suspension to flex laterally inside
the tunnel and the outer two inches (5 cm) of the FlexEdge track bend; together they
make carving and sidehilling easy and predictable.
Rotax ACE 900 engine with intelligent Throttle Control
This is the next member of the advanced combustion
efficiency (ACE) family of four-stroke engines. A triple-cylinder variant of
the ACE 600 engine, the new ACE 900 mill achieves up to 23.3 mpg* (10 L/100km)
while producing 90 horsepower in ECO mode. It also meets U.S. National Park
Service Best Available Technology (ATC) requirements.
It is operated with the industry’s first electronic
throttle-by-wire technology—intelligent Throttle Control (iTC). iTC technology
delivers new functionality and performance improvements to snowmobiles:
driving modes: Sport (quick acceleration and response), Standard, ECO
(improved fuel economy and a more relaxed response)
Key: Alternate D.E.S.S. (Digitally Encoded Security System) tether limits
top speed and acceleration. Some options are dealer-programmable.
rMotion rear suspension expanded
Expansion of the rMotion skid brings the ultimate in
control, capability, adjustability and comfort to additional segments. A 137-inch
(3.4-cm) version accommodates GSX SE, GSX LE, Grand Touring SE and LE models.
Silent Drive System
BRP engineers took a fresh look at the drive system to
significantly reduce noise, vibration and harshness. Silent Drive uses advanced
16-tooth internal drivers, longer rails and unique track designs to reduce
sound to the riders that can be clearly noticed as well as reducing the
vibration level by 70 percent compared to a typical sled. The system debuts on
the Grand touring LE sled with ACE 900 engine.
Redesigned handlebar control
Sleds with the REV-XS platform sport a new left-hand control
that is simpler and more intuitive to operate. On sleds with the multi-function
gauge the control has backlit buttons and additional mode/set buttons.
New designs add style and protection for the REV-XS based
sleds in three sizes: 6
cm) and 18 inches (46 cm). Also available as
eDrive 2 expansion
The eDrive 2 drive pulley is equipped on all 4-TEC and ACE
powerpacks for 2014.
LinQ accessories line grows
The BRP-exclusive LinQ system is a simple, fast, secure way
to attach accessories on a sled tunnel. A saddlebag system joins the fuel caddy
and storage bags in the LinQ line.
Many 2014 models feature enhanced gauges to increase the
information they convey and premium styling. All X models feature a digital
Gauges on models equipped with E-TEC engines and the premium
gauge have an LCD display indicating the percentage of new engine break-in
completed. LCD also indicates “OVER REV” when the sled is limiting the rpm to
Standard on all REV-XS and REV-XM models is a new indicator
for hand and thumb warmer intensity. The parking brake pilot light beeps and
flashes if the brake is engaged for more than five seconds while driving.
2014 Ski-Doo Summit
2014 marks 20 years since the debut of the original Ski-Doo
Summit snowmobile, recognized as the first sled from a manufacturer designed
specifically for the unique character of mountain snowmobiling.
Then, BRP was touting the lightweight F-2000 chassis and
mechanical High Altitude Compensator.
Today, we are talking about the BRP’s very lightweight
REV-XM platform. A tMotion rear suspension that flexes in the tunnel and
FlexEdge track technology to ease roll-up. Body panels specifically sculpted to
slide through powder. Mountain-specific ergonomics.
The original Summit
sled was a 583-cc engine, followed by a limited 670-cc mill. For 2014, BRP
again showcases its signature engine technology, E-TEC direct injection for
unmatched performance, light weight and efficiency in 800 cc and 60 cc sizes. E-TEC engines even prepare
themselves for summer storage.
With the precise, easy handling of the REV-XM platform and
tMotion/FlexEdge technologies combined with the power and instant response of
the Rotax E-TEC 800R engine, mountain sledders do not have to compromise
anything. With the 2014 Ski-Doo Summit sled, they can have it all.
New for 2014:
platform variation for Summit SP with E-TEC 600 H.O. engine
rear suspension for Summit Sport model
DS 2 ski and spindle for Summit Sport model
- New color
(Spring only): The ultimate mountain machine with BRP’s highest performace
- SP: An
excellent mountain machine for any rider
For riders who want a value-priced mountain sled
For some riders, venturing off the beaten path is just not
enough. They need to push it to the limit and do it in style. That’s where the
2014 Ski-Doo Freeride sled comes in.
It’s not just about going your own way off the trail or in
the steep and deep, but going big. That’s why BRP equipped the Freeride with
stout KYB Pro-40 shocks all around.
The 2014 Freeride model is reborn on the REV-XM platform
variation with new tMotion rear suspension for the 137 version. Its ergonomic
package—from the running boards to the handlebar controls—is designed around
the driver specifically for off-trail maneuvers and powder play. Its RS
chassis, developed for snocross racing sleds, includes key reinforcements for
taking big hits with ease.
Add in the Rotax E-TEC 800R engine and you have one of the
most specialized snowmobiles for deep snow extreme riding the industry’s ever
With 154-, 146- and 137-inch track lengths available, there’s
a Freeride model for every riding style and terrain.
Knowing the Freeride crowd is more free-thinking, BRP gave
the 2014 sled a contemporary coloration with a techy gray complemented by
bright white and eye-popping manta green accents that make it stand out as it
comes from the factory or make it an ideal base for radical wrap kits.
New for 2014:
REV-XM platform variation
rear suspension on 146 and 154 models
rear suspension on the 137 model
track technology on 146 and 154 models
