Default 2015 sled rumors

Its awful quiet around here, usually there are plenty of rumors running rampant.

Anybody have dirt on whats coming??
Here's what I've heard.

Cat, bigger 2 DSI 2 stroke (not much of a rumor, pretty every one knows its coming eventually)

Doo 179 hp engine for the mountain sleds (been rumors of the supercharged engine going into sleds forever now though)

Poo something big up their sleeve.. maybe a 4 stroke, or reliable 800 that makes over 145 hp

New Polaris trail sled coming out for sure that will take over the current Rush,it has already been seen testing in Colorado. I think the MTN sleds will remain the same as 14 other then a 550fan RMK in the Pro chassis. There is talk of a new engine but I don't think we will see it till 16 as the current engines all still meet 15 EPA emissions.


Yamaha will have a new much needed MTN sled. Will most likely see a turbo sled with a Yamaha badge on it.


Cat a new 800DI and probably another yamacat model.


Skidoo- Talk of a factory turbo on the Ace engine.

Heard Arctic Cat will be making 2 600's, a suzuki version and Arctic Cat version. Will they do the same with the 800 a suzuki version and a Arctic Cat version. Maybe another Procross with some Yamaha stickers, a Limited Edition ZR big fin edition.

Cat is easy, DSI 800.

Doo, both the 1200 and 600 E-Tec are in their 6th full year of production so maybe a replacement for the 1200 (1330 ACE from the Spyder line) or a massaged na 1200 HO with 150ish hp. Hopefully in the new XS chassis with some goodies from the race sled like the revised front susp geometry and the new rack style steering system for " power like " steering effort. On the 600 E-Tec lots of rumors of an E-Tec II with a few more ponies and even better MPG. Course the base platform of that 6 has been around since at least 04 so maybe a 600R is in order.

Poo, are they gonna finally get in the 4 stroke game with a serious contender (na 3 holer)? Are we going to see a revised Rush chassis with a second generation Pro-Ride rear susp???

Yamie, are they finally gonna enter the modern / clean 2 stroke game or are they going to continue to ignore 75% of the market??? I would say new chassis / susp as they are long over due but it seems they're just gonna use Cat's Pro-Cross as their new chassis. Course maye they'll surprise us and the Cat thing will just be a stop gap measure. Kinda like Poo's Gen II chassis was simply a 2 yr bridge between the classic Wedge and the EDGE chassis.

Yammy could easily have the Ctec 2 800 in there new sleds. cats new 600 simply works, not one bad read up on them so far. hopefully the 8 is the same and yamaha uses it.

Only problem with that is that its Cat motor, Cat chasis, built by Cat. and the only thing yamaha is the styling and minor refinements.

BUT you never know if Yammy brings there own 800 to the table soon
