Anyone know what Rotax is?



I guess I need to do more reading -- this does not sound electric to me:

An Industry-First Technology

Turbos have intrigued the mountain snowmobiling crowd for years, but the hassle and costs of aftermarket installations, calibration, special fuel, maintenance, and elimination of the factory warranty have prevented most from modifying their sled. Designed and built by Rotax, the 850 E-TEC Turbo engine eliminates those concerns and delivers a powerful, seamless riding experience with a limited factory warranty, virtually no turbo lag, and impressive throttle response.

More than just an engine, the Rotax 850 E-TEC Turbo integrates seamlessly in the REV-Gen4 platform to retain the lightweight balanced handling and perfect drivetrain calibration that riders expect from Ski-Doo Summit snowmobiles.

And BRP’s complete lineup of two-stroke E-TEC engines use cleaner, direct-injection technology. They produce less hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions than carbureted engine.

The Summit 850 E-TEC Turbo is available this week at authorized Ski-Doo dealerships for delivery across North America. For more information, visit www.SkiDoo.com.
