Rumor mill is they are ditching the different platforms and going to a single platform with different motors like the other sled makers do.

"IF" the info I got was even close, they are calling for between 60-100lbs of weight gone. I think they are keeping the 2 motors they have now and adding a 4 cylinder back to the lineup like they had in the Apex.

Haven't heard if they will be offering power steering in the mountain lineup yet.

I agree.

actually, I was chatting with a guy that has some connections and that may be true.

There have been talks of a "merger" of sorts between yamaha and cat.
Cat already makes the yamaha 120's.

Wonder how a M8 chassis would do with a turbo 4 stroke in it.

Yamaha keeps deleting the pic off of their FB page which makes me think it could be real.
