2019 Summit 600R E-Tec & More Changes

SKI-DOO 2019


Ski-Doo’s 850 E-TEC engine took the mountain market by snowstorm last year and it has proven to be reliable, powerful and silky smooth. Rotax took that success and technology to create the new 600R E-TEC, Ski-Doo’s newest powerplant. We expect the same results in this smaller package.

Ski-Doo has spread out other changes, refinements and features across its mountain lineup including a myriad of track options, an updated pDrive primary clutch and new colors both in the Summit X and Freeride lineups.

And we’re still enamored with Ski-Doo’s SHOT engine starting technology. It is worth significantly more than its weight in gold.
