Last weekend, the new 2014 CFMOTO SNYPER 800EX made its official launch. And what better way than to participate in an endurance competition to make an undeniably excellent first impression!
Indeed, the 2014 SNYPER 800EX was intensely challenged in its first participation in the 12 HOUR ENDURANCE DE LA TUQUE side x side race which took place on May 18th and 19th. In retrospect, the competition consisted of two (2) rounds of one (1) hour each, drivers traveling at an average speed of 80 km/hr on a very demanding course, testing the capabilities and limitations of both drivers and their respective vehicles!
Cumulatively, after the two (2) rounds of the endurance test, the two (2) 2014 SNYPER 800EX vehicles registered in the competition finished in fourth and fifth place overall. At the same time, they were winning the first place and second place in the 850cc and less bracket.
“The main objective of our participation in the 12 HOUR ENDURANCE DE LA TUQUE races was clearly to demonstrate the performance capabilities and reliability of CFMOTO products. With flawless runs, although our competitors had for the most part side x side vehicles with engines of 900 and 1000cc, the 2014 SNYPER 800EX undoubtedly showed the fans that this vehicle is more than ready for the Canadian trails.” said Francois Hamel, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for CFMOTO Canada.
The new 2014 SNYPER 800EX is equipped with a V-TWIN 800cc engine developing 63HP, ELKA shock absorbers and a CV-TECH transmission. Highly anticipated, the SNYPERs performance will meet the expectations of the most demanding customers in terms of power and agility. It comes with an exceptional standard equipment package, a limited 5-year warranty and a brand new sporty design.
