Heavy but yeah they're great sleds. Don't know the top speed.

I have a 95 vmax 500. Very reliable. The gas milage isn't as good as most sleds. I ride at around 9000 ft. elevation and have it geared low. Goes about 65 - 70 mph. It's pretty quick. Not much travel on the suspension. I like it.

I've got one. Heavy, gas hogs, bad suspension, reliable engines, my son's MXZ is a lot better.
