10-YEAR COMPARO: 2007 Polaris 600 H.O. RMK 144 vs. 2017 600 RMK 144
2007 600 H.O. RMK 144 Price: $7,999
Inflation adjusted 2007 price: $9,408
2017 600 RMK 144 Price: $10,699
Changes: A new RMK chassis that’s better designed for mountain riding compared to the 2007 version, and the 599cc Liberty engine now features SDI, electronic oil pump, bypass thermostat and lightweight integrated mounts. The front-end went from the IQ RMK to the AXYS RMK. The back-end went from the RMK suspension to the IGX 144 rear suspension. You now have LED lights, and the sled weighs 17 lbs. less than it did 10 years ago. That is quite a few improvements.
Bottom line: Would you argue all the above is worth the $1,300 price difference, or not?
