Thanks for the update as I had not heard that. Personally, I love the new black graphics versus the snowmagadden ones, I'd welcome the change.Actually all of the snowmagadden R-XCs produced this year will be in a 129" with a 1.25" track. My dealer called me this past summer and told me that AC had informed him of the changes. He said that AC was allowing customers to change or cancel their order if they didn't want the new version. I believe my dealer said that the graphics were going to change as well.
