They claim 15% increase in power to weight so start there.
Current is 143/464=0.3082 hp/lb
15% increase would be 0.3082 x 1.15 = 0.354 hp/lb
We know 38 lbs lighter so new is 426 lb to find hp
X/426=0.354
X=0.354 x 426
X= 150.8
Your way makes sense to. You increased the power to weight ratio 15% and I decreased the weight to power ratio 15%. I just did it that way cuz whenever the mag editors write about power to weight ratios they always list them in pounds per hp eventhough that would technically be weight to power ratio. Guess we'll all find out soon enough when Polaris releases their hp rating.

And using the 146 number from the shootout puts it at 154 ... which would be on par with Cat & Doo. Polaris hasn't made a HP claim since 2009, and my guess is you won't see them put an official number on the 2015's either. It wouldn't be the first time I'm wrong though

This reminds me of when Doo released the XP. The 151+hp 2008 XP 800R X-Pkg weighed in at 425 lbs... All the Poo & Cat boys poked fun calling them " tin cans ". Well, it looks like you Poo boys are about to get your very own version of the proverbial tin can. Hopefully Polaris did their homework. It didn't work out so well for Cat when they introduced their version of a 50 lb lighter rider forward sled aka the Pro-Cross chassis.

What dream dyno are you guys getting 155 hp on?
I've only ever heard of one rush 800 making over 150hp without
Port work, compression etc. and we just did that two days ago!!
This was on a 2013 and it made 143 before we started making changes.

Exactly. Polaris made that hp claim then quickly retracted it the next year.

The thing also is you guys are figuring out hp with just weight savings. Anyone perhaps thought the 800 is revised and makes more hp also?

I remember the Doo ad with a guy holding two 25Lb weights and all the mags going nuts over how awesome of a feat it was. Then year after year they became heavier. Hope Polaris remembers that. I want durability before super lightness.

Be careful there my friend. I still whoop my 2008 MXZX 800R good to this day and she is straight and true. No tin can. Too much Internet BS becoming reality...

In all reality, the only reason I still ride it is because it is so light, and so powerful, and so dynamic (responds to rider input). Still have yet to find something like it. Which is why I'm so keen on this Polaris Axys....

From your picture it looks like the a Arms are higher. Mines more clear but not as zoomed in
