If you're only considering skidoo and yamaha, I would buy a skidoo this year due to the fact that they redesigned the front suspension and r-motion rear suspension is fantastic. I just sold my 2012 XRS this year. I also am a die-hard yamaha guy and my good friend who owns a dealership told me when they merged with arctic cat, yamaha promised them new models within four to five years. I have a feeling yamaha will be coming out with a new model in 2016. But, if you plan on keeping the snowmobile for ten years, you can't go wrong with the viper. But if you're like myself and you get a new sled every two or three years, I would buy the skidoo this year. Happy shopping!

Snotrax TV rated the Arctic Cat Eltigre sled of the year, which is the procross chassis same as the Yamaha Viper.

Love it. A sled topic on a boating forum. Sledding in B.C. Is unreal. Sooooo many places to go. I would recommend the new Skidoo T3 163. Ride a 13 XM 154 with a Silber Turbo. Ya!!!
