can't say for a grand touring but my renegade x 1200 never lost to a fst last year in any race.

you wont get as good of gas mileage as the fst but its close.

it should also out handle the fst easily.

I didn't think the FST got very good mileage. I know of a couple guys who have FST's and they don't like them. Too many issues with them. They say they will never buy another 4 stroke again. I tell them they need to give the 1200 a try before giving up on 4 strokes. I don't think Polaris puts much effort into their 4 stroke sleds. They are very heavy and don't ride and handle nearly as well as they should.

Any experience out there running a 1200 against a reprogramed FST?

I have a 2008 FST Dragon and a 2011 MXZ-X 1200. They are pretty much the same on fuel. Hard running the Doo is a little bit better than the Poo on fuel. They both have their good and bad points.....

If the fst or the turbo lx was all there was to ride my sleddin days would be over....By far and away the worst new era sled available imo.....If polaris can have a wicked sled like the rush for the 2 stroke market....its obvious they dont care at all about the 4 stroke market....
