Features

Legendary Performance

  • PRO-RIDE® CHASSIS: The INDY® LXT is built on the PRO-RIDE® chassis that is 300% stiffer for precise, intuitive handling. The ideal choice for a nimble handling sled that is fun to ride.
  • COIL-OVER REAR SUSPENSION: Designed for better flotation and deep snow performance with improved on-trail ride. By eliminating the torsion springs and redesigning the torque arms, the skid weighs substantially less.

Proven Value

  • 550 FAN ENGINE: The proven, durable, fan-cooled 550 snowmobile engine provides reliable performance at a great value.
  • CVTECH POWERBLOC50 / INVANCE CLUTCHING: All INDY® models that feature the 500 Fan Engine use the CVTech PowerBloc50 drive clutch paired with the Invance driven clutch. This clutching delivers smooth engagement, enhanced low-speed drivability and quieter operation. These durable clutches have a maintenance-free design and are easy to tune while installed on the sled.
  • ELECTRIC START: Start your sled with the turn of a key. Nothing beats the ease and convenience of electric start.

Simply Fun

  • LIGHTER WEIGHT: The INDY® LXT is 75 lbs. lighter with the PRO-RIDE® chassis.
  • CARGO RACK AND SEAT: Whether you are riding 2-up with a passenger or solo, enjoy the convenience of the large cargo area - which can accommodate a 5 gallon pail. The INDY® LXT features a fixed backrest and passenger hand grips for added comfort and security.
  • HANDLEBAR AND STEERING POST ANGLE: The INDY® LXT design has a 15 degree flatter steering post angle developed for sit-down and standup riding comfort and flexibility.
