2013 Ski-doo Renegade Review
My second favorite brand of sleds is definately Ski-doo, they have some great machines that perform amazingly. recently tested the new 2013 renegade X 1200. heres a piece from the article.


Lets be honest here, if we were going to opt into Ski-Doos stretch track Renegade family, wed spec out an 800cc E-TEC two-stroke. It has greater power and the latest XS sport chassis with the rounded edges, which would let us move better through off-trail snows. But, for overall everyday versatility, it would be hard to beat the solid performance of Ski-Doos Rotax-powered 1200 4-TEC triple. Whats not to like about an engine that can push close to 20 miles per gallon on the trail and offers extremely smooth low end and midrange performance?
The 2013 Ski-Doo Renegade X sits atop the stretch-track four-stroke hierarchy. It enjoys a claimed 130-horsepower ranking from its 1170.7cc triple cylinder engine. Designed and built by Ski-Doos longtime engine partner (and subsidiary) Rotax, the four-stroker has proven itself to be one of the best all-around engines in the snowmobile line up. It has ample torque, which works well in the Renegade as a hard-charger out of the corners and equally as well when breaking trail. Drive away power at its 2500-rpm engagement is smooth with strong midrange performance. Its at the top end that you feel the limits being reached, although the engine always seems willing to race up to its 7800-rpm maximum engine speed.

is 7800 rpm normal for a sled?

depends on the engine.
peak RPM for WOT on mine is somehwere in the 8000's depends on clutching and gearing.
