“During Q1, we also launched the new Rotax 900 ACE snowmobile engine which was well received by the network and we registered strong spring orders of snowmobiles to be delivered during the second half of the year. In addition, our Spyder retail sales performance has continued to outpace the on-highway motorcycle industry.”
