Default Potential Reasons for the Freaky colors on the 2015 Ski Doo’s?

Based on HCS and other sled forums it is pretty well unanimous of the disaster on the freaky colors for the Ski Doo 2015 release.


So why did it happen? Well here is Letterman's Top 10 list on this:


1. Was the marketing department and BRP executive on drugs or did they stop taking their medication?

2. Is Toronto mayor Rob Ford the new head of the Ski Doo marketing department, if so Ski Doo has an excuse as he likely was in a drunken stupor and high on crack?

3. Is Ronald McDonald working for Ski Doo now or did BRP invest in McDonald’s stock?

4. They must have done extensive market research study’s and focus group testing of current, past and former Ski Doo owners and other brands customers. Were the demographics skewed to younger crowd (Standup, Backpack Wearing Brap Brats) instead of traditional riders? Maybe more Russia and Scandinavia people (who like pastel colors) instead of North American riders who like bold traditional primary colors?

5. Was it a strategic marketing, finance or executive decision to force customers to pay $200 more for optional normal traditional colors like black and thus reap even more profits from customers especially traditional Canadians and Americans?

6. Does BRP hate being referred to as the bumblebee sled maker?

7. Has the marketing department gone overboard on being politically correct by hiring more McHappy staff?

8. Was BRP the target of elaborate Industrial or Political espionage by China to make the #1 or #2 brand lose market share so they can launch their own cheaper copydoo brand and dominate the sled market?

9. Are Doo customers much more liberal than the general population? Is the BRP marketing department planning a Doo Pride day in 2015?

10. The younger crowd (Standup, Backpack Wearing Brap Brats) grew up with Barney the Purple and Green Dinosaur so the new Freeride colors are Barney colors but in reverse with pale lime green main color and purple minor accents. If you don't believe me go check it out yourself or view other posts on this subject with Barney pictures.

I am so with you on this. I was down to a couple of sleds and one was a freeride. When I saw that fugly beast it was immediately crossed off the list. I'm color blind and they made me nauseous. Is it insanity, neuropathy or arrogance, I don't know. But it's frigging hideous. And to who ever designed these color schemes I have this for you

I know YOU are in love with them, that's all you been talking about on here since Tuesday.

Which one you getting??

You get a free Big Mac and a fries with them .

With the cats you get a secondary, 3 belts, and 10 updates you got to PAY for.

The Poo, you get a swift kick in the ass of your sled, to save weight.

(imagine SkiDoo McGay dancers in the new Ski Doo snowmobile onesies singing and dancing to this tune, lettering BRP and XRS like they did at the 2015 unveiling aka the coming out party)


"B..R..P..., Ski Doo X..R..S.. Ski Doo Freeride"


Young man, there's no need to feel down.
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground.
I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town
There's no need to be unhappy.

Young man, there's a place you can go.
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough.
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.

It's fun to play with the B..R..P…
It's fun to play with the B..R..P...


They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys ...

It's time to buy the Ski Doo X..R..S..
It's time to buy the Ski Doo X..R..S...

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel...

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams.
But you got to know this one thing!

No man does it all by himself.
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf,
And just go there, to the B..R..P
I'm sure they can help you today.

It's fun to play with the B..R..P
It's fun to play with the B..R..P..

They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys...

It's time to buy the Ski Doo Freeride..
It's time to buy the Ski Doo Freeride...

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, I was once in your shoes.
I said, I was down and out with the blues.
I felt no man cared if I were alive.
I felt the whole world was so jive ...

That's when someone came up to me,
And said, young man, take a walk up the street.
There's a place there called B..R..P
They can start you back on your way.

It's time to buy the Ski Doo X..R..S...
It's time to buy the Ski Doo Freeride...

They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys...

X..R..S......you'll find it at the B..R..P..

Young man, young man, there's no need to feel down.
Young man, young man, get yourself off the ground.

Freeride....you'll find it at the B..R..P..

Young man, young man
, there's no need to feel down.
Young man, young man, get yourself off the ground.

B..R..P....just go to the B..R..P..

Young man, young man, are you listening to me?
Young man, young man, what do you wanna be?



It is so obvious due to the wild colors of the 2015’s that Ski Doo’s demographics are Happy Young Men who grew up watching Barney, idolized Ronald McDonald and loved eating McHappy Meals.
