Polaris has a Turbo 4-Stroke mountain sled under 500lbs?

Ya, it's just so fast you can't see it


What I'm talking about is their all "new" spar chassis (looks like an XP frame to me)
their "new" tapered tunnel(been around for years)
their "new" 2 piece tunnel(Polaris was using that since the edge chassis)
using a chaincase instead of DD(by golly batman that would be an improvement....that's also already been around forever)
"new" adjustable skis stance

I don't know if you cat guys are just so used to running outdated technology that you don't notice it's already been in the market for years or if this new-to-cat thing is some sort of really bad marketing scheme.

I guess we'll see what kinds of numbers it puts down, see how it performs and then we'll revisit this.

Are you stupid and don't know how to read? How about a turbo 4-stoke with 177hp? I heard it is under 500lbs.

I doubt it is under 500 lbs. They would have been advertising the hell out of that if it were. Flatty said he heard/read 545 I think. Not sure where he heard that. Weights will be out soon enough but not from Cat.

been spending some time on the artic cat webpage reading and watching there big show. if you have nothing else to do let it down load so you can fastforward to 8 minute mark.

other than 10 different options of the same two sleds they have nothing to offer. no 600 as of yet. will that be there mid season suprise? an 800 that is nothing to brag about. and a good running 4 stroke, they have there flagship and pretty much made that there line up.

I'm not going to upgrade my 2011, when you have a good sled there is no reason to get caught up in the hype. I am AC loyal for life though. I used to always ride Polaris until I broke my ankle, but now that I need extra ankle support when riding, I pretty much have to stick to Arctic Cat no matter what I think about the performance.

We're all very sorry to hear that, it's unfortunate that cat has brainwashed another one.
