Snow Traveler

Recommended Posts

Just went out to the mailbox. Got my first Snow Traveler for the year. Based on a quick flip through the pages, it looks good. Seems thicker than past years. 

Grass drags are coming soon, season is on the way.

I looked at the inventory at Freedom Cycles in Concord. They carry Ski-Doo, Lynx, Arctic Cat, and Yamaha (?).   From Ski-Doo they have 29 2022 models ranging in price between a MXZ Sport 600cc EFI 2-stroke at $8.7K to 2022 Renegade Enduro 850cc E-Tec at $16K. For Lynx they had 2 2022 Boondocker 850cc at $15.7- $16.3K and 1 Rave RE 850cc at $17.6K. For Cat they had a couple 2022 sleds, a ZR8000 ES  at $15K and a ZR6000 ES at $13.4K. For 2021 Cat's they had a RIOT 8000 at $15Kand a Blast LT 4000 at $8.5K. They have 1 2021 Yamaha SXVenom Mountain at $8.5K.

That's a total of 37 new sleds, from $8xxx to $17xxx.  Sno-Traveler tested the Lynx Rave RE 850cc, which is the most expensive sled now at Freedom Cycles.

Scary new sled numbers, considering my first sled, 64 Ski Doo tin cab 10 horse cost $599. would do about 35 and almost killed me twice at 15 years old...

But just think how much more comfortably and efficiently a new 120 hp sled could kill you. That's what they mean by "getting more bang for your bucks".

More seriously, I agree that new sled prices have been climbing, but I'm wondering what's happening with used prices. I haven't seen many sleds for sale yet, but the few I've seen had asking prices pretty close to the original selling price. Maybe the sellers are just being optimistic. One ad I saw was for a 2017 Ski-Doo MXZ Sport 600 ACE 4-stroke with a price of $10,000. That sled listed for $8800 when new. That's optimism! BTW: 2018 was the last year for that model.

Already spoke with them .... 

It's not in their current inventory.

Dealer floor inventory will be last product delivered in late December, or January .....

Interesting. What they display on their web site as being in inventory isn't really in inventory. I've checked with another local Ski Doo dealer and they have zero inventory of new sleds, but their web site shows that. That dealer said his spring order was cut and his fall order is uncertain.

That's the same story where ever I call....  Just NO inventory in the pipe line.

No new Learjets
