XF models with the 137-inch track are trail sleds with a few extra inches of rear suspension to bridge bumps and help during occasional backcountry excursions. The XF 8000 series is based on the familiar ProCross chassis, and the LXR package delivers a smooth ride thanks to the compliant suspension calibrations and comfort features like a protective, mid-height windshield to block the cold. Standard electric start makes it easy to get the adventure started. And speaking of adventures, a rear storage bag has space to stash an extra layer of clothing, gloves and snacks for a long day on the trail. The new race master cylinder is a big upgrade for 2014 to deliver more stopping power.
