Hoping sooner than later. While Polaris is facing supply shortages. I think it was just their turn to have an article published about issues. Have the article I think was written on info from last year. All we can do is hope!

I read that article last week and a "aw crap" feeling came over me, quality built sled...not sure? Also, this paragraph didn't give me a warm fuzzy. Was really looking forward to the 7S display, hope it doesn't get glitchy with the substituted chips.

Polaris said it devised workarounds to ease the company’s reliance on the hardest-to-get components, including semiconductor chips used in vehicle gauges. The company said its engineers redesigned the gauges on the fly to operate with different chip sets that are more readily available than the chips the company had been using.

They're probably having to go with other than the lowest cost bidder.

If we will get our 22 Spring Order Matryx sleds Nov.1, Dec.1, Jan. 1 or later?

We should all be grateful to be living in a world where (computerized) manufacturing technology allows a builder like Polaris to switch relatively seamlessly between product lines in very short order. This would not have been possible 40 years ago. Covid has served up lemons, Polaris (and others) is making lemonade

Some folks will get them in February, and Polaris will give you an extra year of warranty to make up for it.

Its the main reason I ordered a doo this year. Last year my dealer had almost all of his doo's in before he got his 2nd Matryx. And this year parts are more scarce and orders are way up so what do you think is going to happen? The riding season was hardly 2 months long last winter... can't sit half of it out. I was at my dealer today and he already had one Indy 600 SP in. It was a snow check; he's not getting any floor models.

You're gonna be waiting longer for a Doo this year. Remember Quebec is still shut down and has limits on gathering sizes. Factory's and all their suppliers cannot work at full capacity right now.... This is all besides the parts shortages. Good luck

God only knows? Who ordered a lynx? I gotta believe they would be ok simply from the limited sleds they are building compared to Poo and Doo...Limited models, limited colors, limited quantities.
