Valcourt, Que` August 5, 2008 – BRP is introducing the 2009 Ski-Doo MXZx-600RS with a host of changes and refinements designed to make this the most race ready snowmobile offered to the racing community. Last year the MXZx600RS debuted on the all new REV-XP platform with great results across North America, winning several championships.
This year the Valcourt Engineering and Race Shop team has taken things even further with dozens of improvements to enhance rider control, handling, suspension and durability, all of which will result in faster lap times. “Our goal was to make the snowmobile easier to race – for both the driver and their mechanics,” said Ski-Doo Director of Marketing Francois Tremblay.
“The changes reflect our priorities of easier handling, better cornering and better suspension at race speeds – along with the need for extreme durability to keep racing costs lower”. “Many of the changes were also the result of direct feedback from X-Team racers and mechanics, from SuperTeams to the grassroots.” There will also be renewed Race Schools conducted this fall to support racers on the new MX Zx600RS.
