Default Is the Rush done?

Will there be a Rush offered in 2021? My local dealer (who I bought a Rush XCR from back in 2018) shows 31 2020 Polaris sleds in stock but no Rush models and only two Switchback 137's. They have no leftover Rush models either.

sales numbers will dictate that. the writing is on the wall. two dealers here said they didn't order any for the floor and one was snow checked. at one of these. so that will pretty much tell the tale. i bet there done at this point?

Was just in at the local dealership and they told me Polaris was phasing out the rush style sleds and going to be focusing back on the suspension in tunnel style sleds. I love my Pro-x SB so I was a little disappointed to hear that.

I think the Rush Axys is amazing, unlike anything I've ever ridden. Made my XS Ski-Doo boring. The Rush stays flat, rides great and feels like a dirt bike at times. Power of the 800HO also unlike anything I have been on. Spins like a 600 with way more snap.

Maybe in a few years there will be a following for them and they will be worth some money

Funny thing is when I try to explain to a non Rush rider why I like this sled so much. Words like "feels like a dirt bike" or "is just so much freakin fun" fall on deaf ears of those that have never ridden one or can't get past the looks of the rear suspension. Also conventional tunnel makes it a bunch easier to make top end MPH plus is way more friendly for strapping on bags. I do however thing Polaris missed the mark by not making a 128/129 Rush, best combo of the shorty n Switchback me thinks but with manu's n media pushing 136+++ as being the norm for trails, suspect the shorty will soon be extinct..........hope not though.

I'd step into a 129 version for sure. Heck I'd still like to jump off mine and onto a 129 XC to see how different it is. My most modern experience on a conventional tunnel machine is our old XLT

I hope they keep it. I think it's a fabulous chassis. I don't think I'd ever buy a shorty though. The 136 is a good combo for me.
