Is Yamaha spring order only like the Cats or will the dealers have sleds on the showroom next fall?

Idk about Yamaha doing the mapping. The blast was fine but the riot x 800 was really bad . Huge miss in the midrange and a bad spot around 5000-5500. I’m hoping there was something wrong with that particular sled.

I'd love to buy my 10yr old a Venom, but the price is not inline with the machine.
Well it is not meant to be a kid's sled. It is a starter/ smaller rider sled, and the price on that for the non almost purple replica , is about right. I know of several buying. Replacing old Polaris from the rumblings. Two blast for the price of one 850 hand grenade from my internet reading. I can buy a turbo cat with ATACK for less than a grenade. Tough choice.

There are alot of snowmobilers that have big money. Especially mountain riders. Alot of people won't blink at 8k and like the guy on the video said, they will hold their value decently, total cost of ownership over a couple years might be 3k which isn't bad for a brand new sled. There is nothing else like it in that segment, if you have a kid or gf newbie, m blast would be far and away the best sled nothing even close to it. 3k for a couple years ownership is nothing

In the showrooms..Yamaha isnt stupid like Cat
WOW @dskofich you sure have a hardon for Cat.

Now that Textron cleaned up all the Cat hold over sleds maybe they will have a few sitting on showroom floors next fall if dealers even want any sleds, my local dealer liked not having the expense of sleds sitting.

exactly
Told my son back when he was on an 600 crossfire (small for his age) i would have bought one of these on the spot.

troy city garage 7399 plus a free cover and a 300 visa card .. way better deal then blast
I would rather have the AC version and i have a good cat dealer.
