Thumbs up

I started this thread for realistic Rumor Mill style information. Its about that time of year when Arctic Cat should be letting loose some info about a late release new sled.

Over the past few years we have seen big innovations such as the Firecat Introduction in 2003, The Turbo Introduction in 2004, and the Direct or Diamond drive.... so Whats Next? Thanks guys

2002 Pantera 800 (BIG BERTHA)
2002 ZR 600 (CJV)
2005 T660 ST
2002 Z71 Tahoe
1987 Silverado 3/4 Ton (Project Plow Truck)
1996 Pro-Line 201 Walk Around

CAN YOU EVER HAVE TOO MANY TOYS?

Too easy. 1000cc (or better) 4 stroke in a 'lightweight' chassis for the single-rider touring crowd (you know, the 30+ guys like me). GSXR1000 motor seems to be the rumour of choice, but what do I know....??

The dealer meeting is the 4 days prior to their "Snow Blast" March 11. The Snow Blast is in Yellowstone. Are 2 strokes allowed in YS anymore?

I can't imagine they'll abandon the new F series engines as it had to be a huge investment, but it is interesting that they're rolling out the new models in a place where (I think) only 4 strokes are allowed to operate.

My vote would be an M7 (15" track) style sled with an F8 motor (already in racing) set up for performance trail, that's with the float shocks, sway bar, wide stance, 160hp (for doo conquering) and all the titanium parts (King Cat style).

I like the "or better" aspects of what Suzuki has in their arsenal. Why not adapt the Hayabusa mill?
