RUMOR: Ski-Doo to release a limited build 800 (twin or triple??)

Post by Kip Za » Wed, 18 Aug 1999 04:00:00


There is a strong rumor floating around that Ski-Doo will be releasing a
limited build 800 this fall.  I wonder if it will be an 800 triple
somehow mounted into a modified MxZx chassis, or will it be an 800 twin
in the MxZx chassis. Damn, wouldn't that be sweet!!! There have been
rumors about an 800 twin for a quite a while now, I wonder if they will
do it?  I sure hope they DOO!  Anyone have any info. or ideas about this
one?

Looking back at Ski-Doo tradition I would tend to believe it
will be in the form of the Summit. They did it with the
original 670 and the 670 X. The 700 came with both trail
and mountain versions but that was expected. It would
give the altitude crowd something other than the RMK
800.

I heard that a 800 Ski-Doo will be released in December. It will be a twin.
Don't know what track it will have.  Hope it is a 2x141.

I heard it will be a Summit with a 151 track option.

The 670 introduced in a Summit? maybe I am mis-understanding your
post.  S/D introduced the 670 in a limited build '92 Mach 1X, had many
crankcase problems, modified the design to the current
configuration.The Summit debuted in '94 with the F-2000 chassis fitted
with either the 470 or a 583.

Yes, rumors are flying,
Typically S/D has been trying to hone in on clutching the monster twin.
If they do release it, I don't think they will limit it to just the
Summit, S/D wants to know how the engine will perform under multiple
conditions from a relibility standpoint. I would tend to speculate a
Summit 800, and a Formula Z 800. S/D also doesn't want to throw the new
700 off the map, so I don't think you will see an MXZ 800, (just yet)
Keep in mind, I haven't heard any hard juicy facts, but I will be
waiting to foreward the info.

Whatever it is, I bet it'll be shown at Haydays....Remember a couple
of years ago when they brought out the MXZX by helicopter there?
