- Cowling redesigned with two rectangular headlights and grill in between (except SM-Racer and Mini-Sno)


- Backrest no longer says "Moto-Ski" and seat style is white w/blue center stripe on Capri, Zephyr, and MS-18.  Cadet uses a seat similar to the 1968 models with "Moto-Ski" embossed but all blue.  Grand Prix, Mini-Sno, and SM-Racer use an all black sport seat.

- Skis have rounded and more pronounced handles

- Flat/square tubular front and rear bumpers

- Introduction of 2 lens tailight to be used through 1972 


- Grand Prix prototype was a 1 seater with a huge trunk
 
- There was a reverse option offered on some MS-18 models but few were made and less survive.

- Mini Sno introduced mid year and is basicly the same as the 71's except 1970 had a white engine cover, a chrome bumper with a slightly different shape, and a fiberglass belly pan.
Both years used 1969 full size sled handlebar grips (only black), runningboard mats, and tail
light lenses.  Another case where it was cheaper to use existing pieces than engineer new.
