INDY® LXT

Trail Touring

Starting at $9,899 CA MSRP
2020 550 INDY® LXT White Lightning is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from backfires, not smooth, reverse finicky I am not sure how these engines are supposed to run, but below 5000 rpm it constantly Below 5000 rpm, the engine constantly sounds like it is "engine braking when going down a hill", constantly popping and firing. This is tolerable around 3500rpm, and is really annoying around 4500rpm. It also backfires from time to time on startup, and idling rpm drops quite often drops below the point where the reverse gear can be activated. Apart from that, it works fine, but I would have preferred a smoother running engine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for your buck! So I bought this in January and live in northern Maine. It is a great overall seld I did upgrade the track to get some traction in powder conditions. So it now has 600 miles and I love it for several different reasons. It's a light sled that you can haul 2 people and its surprisingly has plenty of power for me I cruise about 55 mph. I would have love to seen it as a liquid cooled engine as this one is fan but I get it it's a price point sled.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s reliable and performs as expected I’m coming from a four stroke Yamaha so this sled is very basic, loud and smokey. But it starts and runs as it should and had the features I wanted such as 2 up and long track, it’s lighter and more maneuverable. I hope it’s more dependable because that’s all it’s got going for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for a basic 2-up sled Bought the Indy LXT 550 Northstar Edition to replace our old 1999 Ski Doo 500 SLE. We travel. 10 mi/17 km over ice and portages on Georgian Bay to get to cottage ..slush, deep powder, glare ice we get it all. This sled is amazing. Fantastic rider position, flies in the open and picks through the winding trails with grace. The 1.3 inch/144 Cobra track is like a Sherman tank going up hills even with two up and loaded with supplies. The fat Gripper skiis float and steer exceptionally well. I hope that Polaris can match the reliability of our old Rotax 500 but reviews of the 550 seem solid. If you have varying conditions like us spend the extra bucks and get the Northstar Edition..well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent ride quality, light weight I bought this last spring it was a great purchase ! Very happy as I bought it for ice fishing, back country riding in Ontario and taking my family out riding. The storage room is awesome for hauling gear to our camp. This winter I also tested it out in the deep snow and the 144 got through where other machines were buried. Many of my outdoor buddies were very impressed and are considering getting the same sled. For a 550cc it has an impressive amount of power. The handling is second to none.
