I am in the market for a new sled and am looking at a F8 LXR or a Z1 or a Z1 turbo. Aside of the price what is the major pros and cons of the 4 strokes. I know the noise and fuel mileage but what about the weight and performance offsetting that or a total handling and comfort.
I bought my wife a F5 last year(in pink) and the ride and weight and handling are great but is it worth the extra money for the Z1? I currently ride a 2000 Triple touring and love the machines ride and performance but after riding a friends F8 and a 800 renagade ski doo the technology is far superior to mine and an update is due.
So which one???????????????? I am a cat person so the Ski Doo is out and beside I can rib the friend that rides a ski doo if i don't, althou my second choice is a Rev chassis. I perfer a 600 but cat saw no reason to improve their 600 and only have 1 choice in a 600 Sno Pro. The 600 E-TEC is a great choice and cat will lose people if they do not address this next year. I waited for a mid season 600 but did not appear so maybe I should hold off till next. I need to stimulate the economy and Obama has not offered any help to the snowmobile industry. That another thread. Please any input is good.
