2015 indy 600 sp or 2015 renegade sport 600

before anyone chimes in, I am a polaris guy and I'm honestly giving the renegade a serious look. Looking for unbiased opinions on both sleds. The indy is the sp model, and the renegade is the 137" sport 600 model. I know the basics and specs of both sleds. Love the 137 in the renegade, and the price point of the renegade. Cheap way to get into the crossover market. Like that the polaris is the SDI 600, no carbs. Both appear to be great entry level sleds. Looking to snowcheck next spring so the skidoo warranty is definitely appealing. The snowchek models are 4yr bumper to bumper where as polaris is only 2 on the indy models. I know the more comparable model to the renegade would be the assault 600, but 8600 vs 11000. a lot of difference there. Never rode either the doo or the indy so looking for honest opinions on both from riders not readers. thanks in advance!!

2015 indy 600 sp or 2015 renegade sport 600

An assault Is 144" is it not? Not comparable to a 137". I'm partial to the polaris. A longer track is a nice upgrade though. Stick with the 600 motor size either way but vote is for the popo. Sorry can't comment on the new skidoo ride just older and prefer the polaris hands down.

Yeah. Sorry the assault is a 144. So it would be the switchback. But still over $2000 more than the rene. I also like the popo but I also like my money lol

The polaris is a 15" wide track and the doo is 16". The footprint is pretty much the same in the assault vs renegade.

I would go with the renegade based on the longer track. More fun off trail

For ski doo it's 4 years on mountain sleds and Rene doesn't fall in that category. Buddy ordered a xrs Rene and all he got was 3 years. I love my sb pro r but to each their own. If your snow checking for next year it's too early because 2016 is going to be a good year for skidoo and polaris. Skidoo will have a 1000 etec and polaris Indy chassis is going to be different I would bet. Sport models on skidoo are crap. Shocks don't last and not even rechargeable I think

I vote for the Polaris. it won't bend like a beer can like the doo. the 600 clean fire is pretty much bullet proof motor. some times light is too light in the doo. That's just my opinion.

Nothing against the cat, just not a fan of the look. Are the ski doos that bad for the bending and cracking issues? I know the Polaris isn't and I do agree on the Polaris 600 reliability record. Today was the first time I even considered anything but a Polaris and the only reason was the look and price point of that rene. I really want a 136 or 137 but couldn't find one new for under 10k. That was the biggest drive for the rene.

I rode a couple 600 indys last winter. The were absolute rippers for a 600. Love the chassis, front end rocks, rear well its really just an IQ skid.
Look at the year old new 600 rmk 144. It is pretty much a 600 sba without the fancy shocks. Not sure on price.
Also Polaris has some promo on rmk's. I think extra warranty, and 4% financing if that applied.

Warranty on the Doo is only 3 years bumper to bumper on a snow check. At least it was this year. It was 4 years in the US.
