NEWS FLASH March 11th 2011, Arctic Cat reveals a Sport Side by Side concept vehicle at their 2012 Snowmobile dealer show.
Two days ago, after presenting their very impressive line of 2012 snowmobiles, Arctic Cat officials gave their dealers from around the world a sneak peak at this awesome looking Arctic Cat green sport Side by Side concept vehicle at their 2012 Snowmobile dealer show in Nashville, Tennessee.
As you can clearly see on the image, it does have quite a long travel double A-Arm in front and a Rear Trailing Arm suspension that seems similar to the one on the new Polaris Ranger RZR XP 900. Unconfirmed reports circulating on the web mention some of the important features like a complete tube chassis that is similar to a sand rail, the most travel 'by far' of any side by side, power steering,
would be powered by the current Prowler 1000 drive system but with an HO version of their 1000 engine, equipped with powerful LED lighting, would be 64" wide, weighing approximately 1000 lbs. and might even be set at a lower price than the new Polaris Ranger RZR XP 900. Again, none of this if official.
We jumped on the phone to reach marketing manager; Kale Wainer, to seek confirmation of this exciting news, and he told us quite simply that for now anyway, this is, just a concept and not a production vehicle. We still asked for more information and more photos and we should be getting some by the end of this month. Come back and visit us regularly and we will do everything we can to provide you with more news on this cool looking ride and maybe reactions from other manufacturers to this Sport Side by Side craze that seems to be brewing. Polaris is yet to truly be challenged in this new segment they’ve created. We should be getting our Polaris RZR XP 900 test unit any day now and we already know it will be tough to beat performance wise, after only riding it once for a few hours, a little over a month ago when it was presented to the press in the Arizona desert.
