For those of you with the 3000 series engine; I was just contacted by my dealer for a few updates: New headlight is on order since this one accumulates condensation and there is a recall for updated intake boots and ECU re-flash for better cold start.

?

On Wednesday, I make my decision whether or snowmobile to bearcat 3000 LT, or one of BRP's snowmobile?
Bearcat is 2,500 euros € more expensive than the Ski-doo renegade 600 ace.
It is priced much higher than BRP ace snowmobiles!


Is it worthwhile to pay more Bearcat ??

The 700cc Kymco is rated at 65hp while the 600 Ace is 60hp. In most reviews it seems the Kymco pulls harder than the Ace, but 5hp is not a big difference and both engines are known to be reliable.

The Renegade platform is just as good or better than the procross/pro-ute; for that reason I would take the cheapest of the two if it was me.

Over here, the BRP's are usually 2k$ plus than the Arctic Cats and Polaris.

I must add: if you are looking for a true off trails machine, the Bearcat is a 146 track and 10 inch skis. I dont think the Renegade is available stock with a long track and wide skis. So upgrading the track and skis might make them pretty much even in price$.

I remember reading somewhere that Cat has increased its prices?
It may finally be time for a bad thing, if you can not compete against the prices snowmobile manufacturers responsible?

Bearcat charmed me test drive. I think it was much more appropriate than the Ski-doo renegade ace.

I think I buy still Bearcat, when it seemed appropriate.

... But it is considered an intermediate which I have to pay money solves a lot.
It may be that the Arctic Cat dealer to pay my Ski-doos more?

I am not sure I get everything your are saying but...

The Arctic Cat is more on their website, but here once at the dealers you can take at least 2K off the price.
Skidoo are always more expensive, and reflect the website price much more.

To give you an idea, I paid 8.999$ for my Bearcat and the Renegade was 11.999$ ... at the dealers.

Price.

For example, in Finland the price Ski-doo renegade 600 ace 10490 €
Arctic Cat Bearcat 3000 LT 12990 €
Prices are exclusive of delivery charges, + 200-300€.
Sorry for my bad English.

What's a 900 Ace Renegade worth in Finland?

Because that would be worth the extra $.

Between the Renegade 600/900 Ace and the Polaris Voyageur, the Bearcat was the best deal when counting everything you get for the price.
(Good 4 stroke,long track, deep snow skis and good performing skid.)
The BRP and Polaris were either too pricey or did not have everything I was looking for.

ace.

900 ace makes the snowmobile too heavy.
We have to use every day snowmobile, and frequently the terrain is very difficult and rocky.
Therefore, those who had a ski-doo expedition sport 900 ace have given up on them.
