BRP recently introduced two new Ski-Doo snowmobiles and a next-generation Rotax E-TEC engine. A limited-build MXZ 600R E-TEC features a new high-performance, lightweight Rotax E-TEC engine, and a new Expedition SWT directly addresses the need for a greater balance of capability and comfort for better days out on the snow.

The MXZ 600R E-TEC brings together the innovative Ski-Doo REV Gen4 chassis with 600-class efficiency and reliability. It features an all-new 600cc Rotax powerplant with 125-hp, along with premium shocks, upgraded track and high-performance steering for an extremely agile and fun ride.

“Ski-Doo MXZ models continue to set the bar with innovation and provide riders the best trail performance experience,” said Bernard Guy, BRP senior vice-president, Global Product Strategy. “The new MXZ 600R E-TEC is designed to establish a new standard with exceptional performance and great value.”


Rotax 600R E-TEC
The all-new, advanced Rotax 600R E-TEC keeps BRP at the head of the class in lightweight, high-performance snowmobile engines. Based on the same square engine principles (bore and stroke being equal) as the 850 E-TEC, the 600R E-TEC succeeds across the board, giving riders a precise and dynamic response at any throttle position. It has a 30 percent improvement in throttle response (matching the improvement of the 850) compared to the previous generation, and its central layout within the REV Gen4 platform gives the MXZ 600R E-TEC precise handling.

Expedition SWT
The new Ski-Doo Expedition SWT combines the traction and floatation of a 24″ track with the comfort and stability of an adjustable 38.4 – 40.2″ front suspension. The result is an improved rider experience so people can conquer more terrain more easily and more comfortably whether for work or for play.
