    How is it more gizmos?

    It is simple ECU programming, no more parts required. Hence why it is even on the entry level models.

    I guess you're right, I guess it has its benefits; but from what we are seeing on the forums, I just don't think consumers care about more electronic "modes," rev limiters and computer crap taking over their skis; they want it sweet and simple (K.I.S.S.). Now the new RXT-X requires you to select a F#$%@ "sport mode" in order to get top performance; I'm sorry it's getting ridiculous and I don't think consumers are buying it. Get rid of all that crap and drop your MSRP by $1,500, that would be a step in the right direction.

    LOL! Good idea... I guess that's BRP's way of saving you the $1,500 over the long run [by saving on the fuel]. Oh well... I did find the smiling gas pump amusing though.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the brand; just not the trend...

    I think it is OK. BRP needs to find a way to justify price increases, which keeps their profit up which allows for innovation. I'm not sure what the eco mode does though. I think every model has an eco mode already. If you don't pull the throttle lever as hard, they all get better fuel economy.
