BRP introduces the 2019 Ski-Doo MXZx 600RS E-Tec racing snowmobile with a new look, lighter weight and longer track designed specifically for snocross racing in North America.

The 2019 MXZx 600RS E-Tec, which is based on the Rev Gen4 platform for superior rider ergonomics and handling in rough conditions, features significant changes designed to provide better race starts, faster turning, better bump absorption and a weight reduction.

The Gen4 layout retains the narrow design featuring centralized mass for agility and responsiveness while the Ergo Step side panels and beveled tunnel gives racers enormous freedom to ride the way they want—without interference from the chassis. New this year will be a 137-inch track length for more traction and better holeshots, a lightweight hood, new lighter LED headlight and larger and newly-Kashima coated KYB Pro shocks. Additional refinements to many systems result in more power at the track, a lower center of gravity and even sharper handling.

The RAS 3 front suspension will feature a new longer, stronger spindle that allows higher cornering speeds and a unique power steering system that provides ultra precise handling with less effort so racers can change lines easily. The Pilot R ski, first introduced last year, is further reinforced in 2019 for more durability and features a very aggressive profile.

The Racing rMotion skid frame in back is completely redesigned for the 137-inch length track with new motion ratio geometry for both front and rear arms. All four KYB Pro shocks (40 mm front and 46mm for both rear) will be Kashima coated for less friction, longer life and consistent performance. All shocks have new calibrations and the rear shock adds rebound adjustment to the high and low speed compression adjustments.
