It's still a artic cat and the Only thing it's got going for it is the Yamaha motor.

It has a locker.

It will be interesting to see how the team rapid response cvt does. The belt is long compared to can am, might keep it cooler.

I'm intrigued.

To wide fit the woods . And at 77" wide it should have 36" of travel not 22". Just another fur ball coughed up on the trail.

Artic cats around my area have as much respect as the chinese utv's. Dealers don't want them and the closes dealer to me went bankrupt and now just does service work.

As Ed said if Gordon had his paws in there it will be a real
off-road buggy. I'm just not a cat fan. Not liking the look either.

Looks like it is a 64" unit with long travel that will take it to the wide 74" . I like the rear trailing arms . It all looks very heavy duty . All mounting points are double shear . The Yamaha engine will be better than a cat but on the Yamaha alphabet machine the rods are very skinny . I would like a 200 hp 64" unit

Just look at these rear arms . Damn , they are built

I like it , cat snowmobiles were total crap in the 90's but now are close to bullet proof . If they can give some reliability to the dirt segment it sure will help sales . The quads and sxs have been terrible for quality around here .

They are using single point with radius bars . Same as popo and the wild cat. Not a two arm. That's in a fixed position no way to adjust caster or chamber .

But the big question is ::: did they do a good job of building it and use quality material . Or is it stuff that needs to be covered in a litter box

It looks a lot like a general with a smaller non tilting bed, serious suspension and undercarriage. The company that just bought ac is a pretty big company so maybe qc will be up.

If it's long enough , it will be fine . If they are to short , it will be a choppy ride
