AD Boivin Snow Hawk Top Gun

Quebec’s AD Boivin has one entry in the Performance class this year, the Top Gun.

The front and rear suspensions are the same as last year, but the machine got a heart transplant: it now uses the Rotax 800 H.O. PowerTEK engine.

The 800 puts out 140 hp, 25 hp more than the Rotax 600 H.O. engine used last year. It has a single tuned pipe with twin flat-slide carbs.

For the clutch, there’s a TRA III drive and a new HPV VSA 10 driven clutch with a dry cog belt.

The track also grew in length for this year up to 136 inches long and 12 inches wide. The lug height it 2.25 inches.

It’s a tall machine at 48 inches, 32.5 inches wide and 105 inches long. The narrow track has rounded edges for cornering.

The Snow Hawk, which is trail-legal, offers a unique ride compared to the traditional snowmobile. Its feel is much more like a motocross bike.


Front Suspension: Paioli Inverted Fork; Travel: 12 inches; Rear Suspension: Expert Xtreme; Shocks/Travel: KYB rebuildable gas/16 inches; Features: The front suspension is a motocross-style fork and the rear is AD Boivin’s proprietary suspension.
