The Bombardier years - During my 18 years at Bombardier, I had the privilege to work as a product designer, member of a team, on several projects. Designs in production: 1990 Safari sled, 1991 Formula , 1995 S-2000 sled, modular helmet, 1997 CK3 sled, 199 ZX sled, 1998 Islandia jet boat, Challenger 2000, 2002 Rallye, 2003 Outlander, Speedster 200, and Can-Am Spyder roadster prototype. Advance design Embrio mono-wheel bike.
2 years on CRJ 200 interior design furnishing group
Most of the sketches were done on vellum, some on a Bainbrige illustration board.
Hommage a Sam Lapointe (In memory of Sam Lapointe) - Drawing in memory of my mentor Sam Y. Anselme Lapointe.
Sam liked good aerodynamics and sleek design.
1994 concept illustration (adjustable windshield sled) - Low profile performance sled for Ski-Doo
The Bombardier years - Rallye ATV evolution
The Bombardier years - Rallye ATV sketch on vellum
circa 1999
1995 - Concept illustration, 1995
4 strokes implementation
Bio Sea-Doo - Gouache rendering circa 1991
At that time, my vision of a Sea-Doo was a Bio machine. Note the adjustable steering mechanism for stand-up riding.
F1 twin track concept sketch 1995 - Inspired by F1 cars, pod push pod architecture
TNT revival - Before leaving to work on Can-Am Spyder Roadster I drew these sleds (TNT revival: for track and trail)
1993 forward driving position sled - This drawing was done from the comments of a mechanics that was asking to position the driver forward. This might have influence partially the REV platform architecture.
SIR, for Sit in roadster.
Sketches proposal for a side by side that was later put in production as the Summum sled. My version was not accepted because it was too low and a bit too long for crossing bumps. 1997
V8 snowmobile... 1995 - This is kind of a joke relative to
power in a sled and nostalgia for the machine age...
1996 sled concept sketch - A sled with side padding for extreme cornering (ergo feature)
Enclosed snowmobile - Circa 1998
April 27, 1997, Concet illustration

  • Thank you Rob, I agree! Those drawings were done for BRP in 2002. Since that the project is gone public, (Search BRP Embrio on google) I can show the concept sketches, but the rights belong to BRP .

  • A concept ahead of it's time. The kawi X2 was out at this time (fixed bars). The Yamaha Waveblaster was not out yet. The SeaDoo HX was not out either. Interesting blend of standup and runabout. Did this concept lay the foundation for the last generation XP with the 3 modes?
