Touring & Utility
The 2010 Touring and Utility models are versatile long-track sleds. Two of the three Touring models are built on the IQ Chassis and have the IQ 136" Comfort rear suspension. Features like 2-up pillow seating, adjustable backrests, electric start and heated passenger handgrips increase long-haul comfort. The three-model Utility lineup includes the new 600 WideTrak IQ, powered by the Liberty 600 HO Cleanfire engine and outfitted with numerous utility features.
Finally, for young riders, the 120 Dragon has a key ignition and safeguard systems that stop the engine if the rider walks away from the sled or the hood is opened. It also looks just like a “grown-up” Dragon with its independent front suspension and sharp-looking Dragon graphics. (Continued)
