My buddy has a 2000 MXZ 800... I absolutely love riding it. I don't know what the top speed is on it, but I can verify it goes at least 110+ mph.

Honestly, right now I have a 99 Zr 500, and I am debating whether to make my next sled either a yellow mxz 600 or an 02 Zr 600 cross country.

The real debate is between the Cat's AWS front suspension or the Rotax 600. I don't know which I want more... the cat suspension or the ski-doo engine... but either way both sleds are great for trail riding.

The first 700 twin was in '97. Either in the Indy 700 SKS (teal green) or the mid-year release of the XC700SP (white).

I think the first 700 triple/triple was also in '97 as an XCR (white or purple) with the "Aggressive" hood.

'98 treated us to a full production XC700 (white) and the RMK700 (blue). Same motor, a real "stump puller".

yea if you wreck goin that fast thhatd hurt.... bad!
I saw that happen first person. Me and one of my buddies were racing across a resivour around Redfield, NY. Well He was ahead of me and I was doing 110 and he was slowly so I'm not sure how fast he was going but he hit a huge chunk of ice above the surface of the ice, the snow covered it and he only saw it right before he hit it. The momentum of the hit put his feet in the air and he couldn't hold on, he fell of and slid 1/8 of a mile, the sled somehow stayed upright and coasted to a stop 1/4 mile from where he hit the big chunk of ice. 2 other guys that we were with saw it from a distance and came over to help. With a huge snowstorm getting real close, we could start seeing it come onto the resivour and getting a foggy white, so we knew we had to get him out of there. This wasn't a smart idea since he said his back hurt but it was the only thing we could think of. We just helped him on his sled and we slowly drove to the nearest inn and someone called 911 in, it ended up he had 4 multiply fractured vertebrea.

Ah, next time I might suggest you check out the "drag strip" before you go racing on it. ;) I hope your friend is doing alright now. He is very lucky he didn't injure himself any more.
