Go to the swissauto website and check out the specs on the V4 500! 200 hp two stroke!!!
Here is the press release on the aquisition, http://www.supertraxmag.com/article.asp?nid=1520
More fuel for futher speculation.

If they already have a long working relationship, what will change? I doubt that Swissauto was holding anything back from Polaris.

If you look at the Weber MPE 750 engine you will notice that it is virtually identical to the engine that Polaris uses in the FS and FST sled. Reason is that PII and Weber-Motor AG/Swissauto co-developed it.

I agree nothing was being held back, and yes the weber 750 in the fs and fst is the exact same motor, just interesting to see what kind of powerplants might be in the works. the v4 500 gets some 200 hp's out of a 500cc 2s, sure it doesn't meet emmissions but that would make for a heck of a race motor, just sayin!

Although they could have some super secret stuff they were using in other areas that now become Polaris property.
