Let’s start with our definition of bad ass.

Start with a brand new bike that is very well suited to snow biking. 450 or 500 four strokes are the current “Mainstream” top pick.

Then, you have to choose a track kit. To be truly super bad ass in our builds, we chose the best of the top two contenders. Timbersled, and Yeti Snow MX. We bought the best they could send us.

So, now you have a dirt bike and a track kit. Bolt them together and go, right? Well, not really. Some adjustments are required, others fall into the “should have” category. We did everything that we think we should have, but none of the “Crazy” stuff like big bores, nitrous, turbos, or any of that other uber extravagant stuff. At least not yet. 😛

Here is what they cost us from our local dealer, who gives us nice price breaks for being top customers throughout the year.

Husqvarna FC 450 Timbersled Long Track Limited Edition “Helga”

  • Bike & Track $21,600 (Before Taxes)
  • Accessories $2,900 (Before Taxes)
  • TOTAL $24,500 (Actual w/ BC Taxes $27,457.94)

Husqvarna FC 450 Yeti Snow MX Long Track Limited Edition “Anna”

  • Bike & Track $24,000 (Before Taxes)
  • Accessories $2,900 (Before Taxes)
  • TOTAL $26,900 (Actual w/ BC Taxes $30,180.63)

OMG! That was scary! These numbers are huge. Keep in mind, we bought new bikes, and new top of the line tracks. You can get into snowbiking for a lot less than this. We went crazy on our purchase because we have filming plans for these Swedish Twins.

How Do These Bikes Compare?

Testing has started, but we’re not ready to film, or report, just yet. Stay tuned for video series – Timbersled VS Yeti!

How Do You Justify This Expense Over a Sled with a Turbo?

You could buy a brand new Ski Doo 850, put a turbo on it, and do some other mods for this price. it would be a monster! If you snowbike, you already know the answer. 😛
