This is the fourth year that all sleds in Yellowstone and Grant Teton must meet BAT certification, which measures for sound and emission standards as set by the US Department of the Interior.
Polaris now has 11 sleds from the past seven model years that are BAT certified. The 2008 FS IQ Touring, which comes equipped with a liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine, has a displacement of 750cc and pumps out 80 hp.
Built on Polaris’ IQ chassis, the sled features the Rider Select steering system, which allows the driver to choose from five handlebar positions. Electric start and Polaris electronic reverse control (PERC) come standard, as well as digital instrumentation and hand and thumb warmers.
“We continually strive to develop engines that are both environmentally friendly and satisfy the performance desires of riders, and the BAT certification demonstrates we have succeeded with the 2008 FS IQ Touring,” says Polaris snowmobile division general manager Scott Swenson. “We are proud to have this model added to the list of Polaris 4-stroke snowmobiles certified for use in these scenic National Parks.”
