BRP's Ski-Doo MX Z X-RS Named 2012 Best Sled for Second Straight Year

VALCOURT, QUEBEC – September 12, 2011 – (Motor sports Newswire) –  American Snowmobiler has named BRP’s Ski-Doo MX Z X-RS as the “Best Sled” for 2012 in its annual Best of the Best awards. This marks the second straight year this model has been chosen for the magazine’s most prestigious award.

In reviewing the Ski-Doo MX Z X-RS American Snowmobiler stated “after our test rides of all the new 2012s we didn’t find anything that could outright steal the crown from this trail king.” They went on to say “This Ski-Doo still corners better than any 800 … and now has the best suspension in the industry,” referencing the new rMotion rear suspension.

There were other Ski-Doo models recognized too. The Ski-Doo MX Z TNT snowmobile grabbed the “Best 600” and the GSX SE model was named “Best Luxury Touring” snowmobile for 2012.

“Ski-Doo has been innovating and pushing new technology forward at a torrid pace the past decade, replacing great products and features with even better equipment,” said Mark Savage, editor of American Snowmobiler. “The MX Z X-RS with rMotion and E-TEC exemplifies this with great performance in all aspects valued by hard core riders.”

“In the powersports world it is unusual for the same manufacturer, and especially the same model, to win an award like this two years in a row,” stated Robert Lumley, vice-president, Sales and Marketing, Ski-Doo and Sea-Doo. “This is a testament to the lightweight razor-sharp handling of the REV-X chassis and to the powerful, efficient Rotax E-TEC engines. These are the kind of technologies that separate Ski-Doo snowmobiles from the rest of the pack.”
