Just looking for a few opinions on if it’s worth snow checking a 2021. I have a 19 6000 RR I bought at the end of March last year, looks to me like the only thing I would be gaining is the new front end, unless I’m missing something. And if I wanted to stay with the RR I’d have to go up to the 800.

There is a new carbon fiber engine mounting set up now on the 2021. The front shock mount for the skid was also changed with new front end.

If I went with R-XC, I’d be loosing electric start, but getting the 1.35 cobra track along with new front end & engine mount. Missing anything else ?? I’m just going what I can read on Cats web site.

And there has been very little chatter on here about the new front ends. The only good thread on it is for a retro fit. I really thought we'd be hearing more from the 2020 owners about the handling benefits. Makes you wonder if there's very little difference.

I'm considering a 2021, but would like to hear more on the front ends

With the RXC you’d also be getting a much better rear skid. Longer front arm, beefed up components, 7 position coupler, better shocks, lightweight muffler, better clutching, and revised ecu mapping... and more! Go for it! Lol

It works! Stock carbides feel like aftermarket expensive! My experience is zero ski lift. All stock settings. Huge improvements over my 2018 that handles really good.

My sled corners flatter, is more stable and steers easier with the new front end.

Wow, didn’t realize the XC had that much more than the RR, I’ll have to talk to my dealer tomorrow when I pick my sled up. Very curious as to what type of trade value he’ll offer with the current prices.

agree with OP on the total lack of 600's for 2021 which is three models, why not offer the 600 in the Riot X or M sleds if they are all going to be built to order and not shoved down dealers throats?

and less weight because who really needs electric start? the notch cut seat looks funny to most that don't get it and might turn some off, so they should make the actual race seat an option imo. have seen plenty of pics of RXC owners put the std. seat on them. they should just ditch the entire RR model moniker and offer the RXC in 600/800 like the XCR 600/800/850 or MXZRS 600/850 - silly to call it a race replica when there isn't an 800cc race sled.

confirmed this in person, the C&A skis also help imo.

The rxc has so many up grades. It is IMO the only 600 worth buying for performance. The slipper gear in the chain case and not using the boss is huge
