PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT AND SAVING YOUR MONEY.
Alpina Sherpa is the world's only utility snowmobile equipped with EFI, a catalytic converter and dual oxygen probes; this advanced emissions control technology gives Sherpa both Euro-automotive and EPA conformity: truly a worldwide leader in clean air on the snow! Forget about exhaust smell, no more pollution, no more noise and no more carrying extra fuel for your thirsty snowmobile.
However, you'll get much more than ever with 75 real hp, a very-high peak torque of 82 lb-ft (111 Nm) at only 3400 rpm, and a savings of up to 50% fuel consumption. The TCMS (Torque Converter Monitoring System) together with the high-efficiency variable transmission, will make your v-belt last much longer, leave less rubber-powder along the trails, and will again save you money in operating costs.
POWER UNDER CONTROL.
If the Sherpa gives you 1365 lb-ft (1850 Nm) of torque at the drive axles for your work, it doesn't mean it only has muscles. The Sherpa's engine is assisted by a reliable brain or ECU (electronic control unit). The ECU makes the engine run smoothly with power at every temperature and every altitude, adjusting to the emission parameters and saving fuel. Last but not least, the ECU monitors all the engine running parameters, informs you of any potential problems, and stores the history of the engine in its memory.
The transmission has its own brain too, which is a simple and reliable micro-computer (TCMS) that reads and processes information about the entire transmission, helping you to choose the right speed for your work, or alerting you in case of inefficient operations. No more burned belts or wasted power since your dual-track receives all the power generated by the engine.
A professional instrument panel is the "interface" between the machine and the driver, with 13 alarm lights plus a temperature and fuel gauge, hour meter, tachometer, speedometer and a digital odometer. On request, all the controls for the grooming equipment and work-lights are now operated through an electronic keyboard with can-bus connection; until now, similar instrumentation was an exclusive privilege of the big snow-cats.
