Well, I feel privlaged to be one of the few that has rode this beast, My good friend and riding buddie works for a well known Ski-Doo dealer here in wisconsin, they got a 08 REV2 800powertech tuesday and I was able to take it for a ripp. All I can say is WOW, a powerhouse to say the least, I could pick up the rear of the sled with one hand all the way to my chest (6'6) and the front wasn't much heavier. It was not a "production" model but a prototype so there may be some bit of changes but the only complaint is that it wasn't as smooth as my F7 for sure, but it did carry the ski's the whole time I was on the flipper. I did not ri[pp it to much maybe 4-5 second bursts cuz a dealer in Colorodo wreked on and Doo charged them $45,000 for the sled since it was a proto. But my buddie said at 60 or so it feels like a turbo kicking in. Rider possition is pretty daamn good, I feel very comfortable and tons of leg room. I hate to sound like a Ski-Doo slaesman but I just thought I would shed some light on the new rev.
