2020 600 Switchback® Assault® 144 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 638.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything the Reviews Stated and More! I've only put 146 miles on my 2020 Switchback Assault 850 since purchased buy that one rode so far was fantastic and proved that I bought the right snowmobile. The dealer experience is great too as I had a couple of warranty issues right after the first ride and everything was taken care of without hesitation. Great sled, tons of power, the uncoupled skid means tons of fun, even if it might sacrifice a touch of that fantastic cornering prowess of the Indy XC. Overall I'm very happy and can't wait for snow to fly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2020 850 Assault What a great sled! It performed exactly as it claimed. Smooth and snappy engine, nice fit and finish, handles great on and off trail. I will get another Assault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with sled if battery would only start it New assault has much improved geometry in front end. Ride is smooth, new 850 has great response and is more quiet then 2014 model we own. Design changes to allow access to engine are great. Has same problem as 2014 model. Battery that came with the sled would not start the sled at less than freezing temps. Polaris batteries (multiple) failed to start sled in winter conditions. Switched to no Polaris batteries in both sleds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Had a 2012 assault 144” prior to my 2019. The 2019 assault is a total animal compared to the older assault . Lighter , feels more nimble , more power on tap at all times .
