A New Arctic Cat Side-X-Side?


3/10/2011 3:03:00 PM

Shown (briefly) at the Arctic Cat snowmobile dealer show this week, was a Prowler-like side-x-side that looks WAY sportier than a Prowler.

Yep, Arctic Cat has been pretty busy lately!

Final Sneak Peek Video for Arctic Cat's 2012 Snowmobiles?


3/2/2011 1:27:00 PM

An 1100 Turbo for 2012Arctic Cat gives us yet another tidbit about their 2012 Model line: An 1100 Turbo in the new chassis.

The vented center portion of the hood is clearly different than the pix that people have been posting in the forum, which suggests...multiple engines. Plus, as the spy photos indicated, the sled appears in both long and standard track configurations.

Part Deux: Arctic Cat's 2012 Teaser Video


2/24/2011 4:43:00 PM

2012 Arctic Cat front suspension

This is a screen-capture from the newest Arctic Cat teaser video for their 2012 snowmobile line.

I see a one-piece spindle w/ball joints, and wide spacing between the A-arms, just like on the Sno Pro 500/600. But definitely a more sculpted spindle.

I couldn't see the dingle-arm but I think I see the turbo encabulator.

Arctic Cat's 2012 Snowmobile Tech Video


2/23/2011 11:33:00 AM

Ski-Doo released a new video about their 2012 rear suspension (interesting, but terrible voice "talent").

Polaris released a vid about their three new-for-'12 sleds (lots of sizzle, not much steak).

After taking a beating on this site for NOT releasing more info on their 2012 machines, I needed to post this video detailing some important technology for their 50th Anniversary Arctic Cat snowmobiles.
