That makes two of us. 200hp 153" viper with a narrow stance would be perfect for me.

It would take a demo ride at least to get me too. As far as weight, power, and reliability all the factors are there, but I HATED the '12 proclimb. Got on a '13 an it was better but didn't spend enough time on it to know if I like it or not. My gut tells me ill like the viper better than the cat though.

Looks like more then that, the Pro has bags, tools,gear food loaded on where the viper is stripped..i would figure 60-80 pds difference if both packing same rider gear....

That is true, but the viper also had a longer track. At the end of the day, if its more reliable than my turbo pro, feels similar weight I may have to try one out one day. I would love a reliable 250hp sled that doesn't kill my back.

I went to my local yammie dealership to have a look see at the viper on the floor...

I tried to lean it over...willikers , better luck having an elephant jump hurdles..

maybe the shocks were set up way to hard..

I have no issues with any other mtn sled..

You said you have no trouble with any other mountain sled...the viper is a trail sled. Along with installing a longer track guys are doing narrower front ends too.

Remember, the tool kit won't need to be nearly as large as the pros so I think his estimate was close, haha. regardless, it's not the 100+ pounds that it use to be just a year or so ago. It's a step in the right direction and I'm excited to see how these turn out for us this season.
