Everyone I have spoken to that has been on one has had nothing but good things to say.

I will throw a leg over soon and decide for myself.

Easiest sled I have EVER ridden in tight trees and sidehills like a mongolian sherpa. If I had the cash I would snow check one for sure. A friend of mine rode the new Poo also and chooses the new XM all day long and he wears Polaris underwear.

I really liked it. Now I just need to figure out how to pay for one. They did more than just change the stickers. It works really well, sidehills really nice and you can move around on it really well. The new steering angles seem to make it easier to steer also. Its not leaps and bounds ahead of the 2012 ski- doo but it is moving in the right direction.

Finally got to spend some time on the XM today.

First impression: not impressed. However, it seems that most of my lack of being impressed was due to poor calibration from the factory. Terrible ski lifting, bars to far forward etc.

The dealer demo'ing the sled was good enough to let us make some changes and they were HUGE. Sucked up the limiter strap one hole (should have gone 3) and rolled the bar riser back in alignment with the post.

Sled gets on top of the snow like nothing else. Sidehilling is effortless. Rides much lighter than the published weight.

A 163" with proper suspension and clutch calibration is going to be a weapon.

I would have to agree with all of the above.
