Default Everything looks perfect except the cvt

https://www.snowmobile.com/blog/2019...-snowbike.html

At least its a 2stroke so might still be fun even with the cvt. If it was a single cyl 4stroke cvt, it would be like riding on a one ski Polaris Rzr....

Makes a conversion kit look pretty silly to me.
Click the patent link and it also shows a 2 ski version with no running boards kinda looks like a phazer.

If anyone can pull it off it would be Cat as they co-own the patent on the monorail design with Camso which is how Cat was able to develop the Alpha.

All CVT transmissions scrub power, They are not efficient, Those who have sled background and knowledge know how temperamental dialing these in are and with changing elevations its a moving target, Not to mention all the weight , With limited HP it will not pace with a properly geared bike..

Wonder if the intent is to share similar power plant families as the "kid sled" patent?

Hopefully its at least half an 800 at 400cc!

1/2 a 800 is still 80 hp on a cvt fuel injected will eat any current snow bikes for lunch. the loss in the cvt will be more than made up by the gain in correct gearing = max HP at all times. The proper weight and balance of the bike and rider would be an other big plus. Even my die hard sled buddies agree that a proper factory snow-bike with some power would spell the end of Mountain sleds as we know them--it will take more than 80 HP for that to happen, we were talking more along the line of a proper 600 or 800cc sled engine.
