 :eek7: That is a lot of horses from a 450 4stroke single!! :thumleft:

They keep mentioning a "snowbike", what is that, something tuned for high altitude, or racing in actual snow??

Also, those riders need to keep up the hours to maintain pilot's licenses. :eek7:

On the proper snow bikes the tour operators use at ski resorts they actually fit turbos on the 450's, it's insane!

This is the one I would buy tomorrow if I lived in an area which snowed. Then again i'm a Honda slut

That 450 is insane.. you can see how it pulls.
