Polaris launches ‘breakthrough’ snowmobile
Polaris Industries launched its 2010 600 RUSH snowmobile that is a breakthrough for the industry, the company said.
“The progressive-rate rear suspension has been proven in Motocross; Polaris has now become the first company to bring it to snowmobiles,” Scott Swenson, vice president of the snowmobile division, said in a press release. “This innovative suspension combined with the new super-rigid PRO-RIDE chassis provides riders with an unprecedented level of rider-active control, including improvements in acceleration and cornering.”
Boasting the 600cc Polaris Liberty engine, the 600 RUSH is designed with improved chassis rigidity and engine mounting to deliver more power to the ground. Polaris says the 600 RUSH also delivers aggressive styling, weight reductions and improved reliability.
The RUSH will be available at dealers in the fall and will be offered as part of the 2010 Polaris Snow Check program in March. psb
