what age riders are buying the freestyel, BRP says something like 18 to 24 year olds, when i started riding t age 16 i had a 440 srx, and it was to slow buy the end of the first year. if i bought a freestyle i would buy it for my son when he turns 10 or 12 years old ( hes only 3 know )

so what age of kids ( people ) are buying the freestyle

my kid is 6 and if i could get it past his mom and could afford it i would probably try and get him on it this season but it would be his last sled till he was atleast 15 or 16 i think the sled is ideal for a 10 - 16 yr old but if the kid has had it since 10 by the time they are 15 or 16 they would probably be bored with it

7 is probably a little to young but i couldnt justify buying a 120 and only get a season out of it im hoping he can ride the kitty cat one more season and then i ll see what i can find for him

I was thinking the same thing"age" I might get one next year if they are any good, I don`t buy anything the first year...I had my daughters sit on it at the Maine show Sunday and it fit them to a tee, They are 10 and 8 but they will be 11/9 by the time I get it. The ease of steering was the big thing they liked and you could fit 2 no problem... :div20:

i put my son on one this weekend and was actually surprised at the size of the machine, it's pretty big. My son who will be 6 in December will be bored with blasting around the lake on his Minirev by the end of this winter but I can't crank the speed up too much because of his sister wanting to also ride it so I was thinking the freestyle for his 7th bday but unless he grows a bunch I'm thinking Indylite instead since he doesn't need a real good suspension. I'd say ideal age is 8-12. At 12 I'd go 500ss to have it be a sled that would last 5-6 years.

i would buy you kids a freestyle around the ages of 8-10....i got a 440 when i was 11 and it was toooooooo slow....im at my 5th machine now..i've bought the last 5 of them but still. around 10-12 i would buy them a 500ss to keep until they're like 15 or 16 then get them a 600 h.o.

I NEED SPEED AND I BET MOST OTHER 16 YEAR OLDS THAT RIDE SNOWMOBILES WANT SPEED TOO......

TAKE CARE THOUGH....

You people dont get it. This sled is not ment for the speed freak, its just for skrewing around and having fun. It is sort of like the honda xr 50 thing! You guys dont know whats fun! It would not be good for long trail rides but for skrewing around town it would be great. It is narrow so it is easy to throw up on one ski and man handle, it also can take a beating. :luxhello:

My Daughter is 9 and I think it would be perfect. Just can't afford it right now. 18-24 yr olds would find it to be to small I think. I stepped up from my kitty kat at 6. I rode an alluette and a bravo then but my fav as a kid was a 250 colt. I could go anywhere and i could pull it out if i needed to at about 11.

I started on a kitty cat on my third birthday and got a 500cc Indy Trail on my 5th birthday and at 13 i got my 03 600 MXZ rev. :banana:

HOPE THIS HELPS

18-24 y/o is not even close.. when I was 17 I was already driving an 800cc sled. and I still have it. I would think the age would be around 10ish...
