    "the first production snow bike that you can actually buy" I don't think it's thru. I remember riding a dedicated snow bike at least 10 years ago called "the Snow Hawk" manufactured in Quebec Canada. And we bought two of those at the time. But hey! Only the legal language is deceptive. Not the legal statement... :D

    Only one question remains, how much do they cost? There's no pricing on their website so maybe you guys can fill us in? Even if it's just a general idea, given how government lockdowns are screwing everything up.

    Sorry guys but the arctic cat SVX 450 was the first purpose built snowbike that you could actually buy. That was like 5 years ago. Granted, it was simply a marriage of a Camso kit on a Sherco bike, but it was sold as OEM arctic cat, ready to ride on the snow.

    @robfn that's a toss-up. It's really more like a basic snowmobile with a single, large front ski. A matter of opinion and details, and a subject of possible argument.

    Enough torque/power to pull a snowboarder? Looks like a yes Pulling the dead one. Long term health of engine from pulling is a good question though.
