Ski-doo 74. One in a million. Engineered to keep its leadership in dependable performance.
The slide suspension equipped Élans were the heaviest at approx. 320 - 330 lb. The main reason were the slide suspension and the SS muffler. The suspension alone is 60 lb! While heavier the ride was a huge improvement. Regarding ride the bogied élans in the 70s were among the softest because the 3 and 4 wheel bogies were only a single spring, aka the were setup for one person. Later the Élan recieved a double spring setup.
