ZR 200 specs

I'm interested in the 2018 ZR 200 (or the new Sno Scoot) for my wife to use. She is less than five foot/100 pounds and tends to putt along slowly on the trails with our 2-seat 550 lxt, so we think she will be more comfortable on a small sled. She has driven an older 2-stroke Phazer in the past, but even that was a bit heavy for her to operate. Something that is more than 350 lbs is probably a deal killer; something that heavy / expensive and equipped with a modified 9 HP power washer engine is over-priced in my opinion.

The trouble is the manufacture's website is a poor source of information and while the local dealer has promised me info on basic stuff like dry weight, they have so far not come through.

Anyone know anything about these new sleds other than the little info they have online? Thanks.

I've read about it as well as the Premirer, both were 3/4 sleds and the Premierer had a 300cc 4 stroke!
It was more of a yard sled than trail!
I can't wait to see them at Hay Days in September!

I was thinking the ZR200 is far better suited to the trail than the yard, unless your yard is a park with hills and deep snow.

The thing is my wife wants a light weight sled and she will probably never break her current land speed record of 30 mph, ever. This means she does not need a 400 plus pound sled with more than 50 HP. Anything that is only 9 HP is far less than a 3/4 sled.

Something as simple as the weight of the sled should not be too hard for a dealer to obtain.

Usually, if weight is not listed, the company isn't proud of it...

It's good to see them making machines like this again. There's a pretty big gap between the youth sleds and the full size sleds. These fill that nicely.

From what I've read elsewhere, the engine is a modified version of this one; Yamaha MZ200 192cc OHV Horizontal Engine 3/4" x 2-1/2" #MZ20AAIA61

This is fine as long as it is not attached to a heavy chassis. My wife and I are in our 50's and only get two weeks riding max each year so we stick to trails like Munger or other places that don't have deep powder. The last time I was in 18" of powder with a heavy machine it felt like I was riding a dirt bike in deep sand; I failed to stay upright several times. Until we live in a snowy climate long term, it is sticking to the trails for the most part for us.

The snow scoot is a fun little toy, saw a lot of people riding them around on trails, but they do seem a little cramped for even a small adult if riding for extended amount of time.

Just watching my kids and grandkids through the years, they love to ride my 1999 Jag Deluxe. It has a 340 motor and electric start. This sled is, in my opinion, the best trail sled for people around that size. My sister likes driving the Touring 380, but it is a bit heavier with the long track. Plus the electric start was pulled off a long time ago and it is a tough pull.

1999 Arctic Cat Z 370F (son's) - needs track

Currently working on:
Kiddy Caboose - older Nila sled.

My wife is 4"8" and 100 lbs. I think she'll fit it okay. We're hoping to get a test drive this winter, but the dealer is not responding to that request either.

I have 2 Sno Scoots and a Sno Sport as well (larger 120cc instead of just 80cc)

They are very small and tippy!
The Sport on the other hand is a very nice machine!
