The Polaris Assault 800 tops out at 112 mph and the Ski-Doo 850 has a top speed of 118 mph. If you're an advanced cyclist, you might consider upgrading your snowmobile to achieve a higher top speed. This may be true to a certain extent, but discomfort when driving a snowmobile reduces the driver's concentration and makes it difficult to control the machine, not to mention causing fatigue. The top speed of 400 old snowmobiles varies greatly depending on the model and year, but they can typically reach top speeds of between 55 and 85 miles per hour.
For fun, we've also compiled the top speed numbers for some older snowmobiles in this table. The Polaris RMK 700 could go up to 106 miles per hour, which wasn't much of an improvement back then, but it was still a model fast enough to meet the needs of speed lovers. Polaris had a new snowmobile on the 800 Rush Pro-R and Ski-Doo returned with his MX Z X-RS, now with E-TEC direct injection that powers the powerful 800R engine. The first time I tried driving a snowmobile I was a little scared, but I was very excited.
And as a last word, do not forget that snowmobile speedometers are primarily for informational purposes. But it has a cruder feel because it has a firmer hit and pulls more abruptly than the Polaris and the Ski-Doo, which makes it seem faster than those sleds. After all, the people who buy these snowmobiles are “inveterate cyclists who care more about going fast and hitting bumps than about making sure that the seat, handlebars and foot spaces are made with the right durometer, curve or angle”. Similarly, the F8 Sno Pro is for snowmobiles that drive fast, but expect more comfort during longer days in the saddle.
Whether you're a professional driver or just a recreational driver, snowmobiles can be extremely fun and entertaining.
