    Did this sled sell out to consumers or rental sled providers ?

    Yes but Cat is where it's at.We hear alot of chatter that cat isn't moving fast enough but they have the best mountain sled,they release a more affordable single and a new 800 in the last few seasons.The backlog of inventory should be gone they could be in a good position for the future.

    I certainly hope Cat is able to continue. If we lose them then Yamaha will probably just drop out of snowmobiling as well. I'd really like to see our government slap a hefty tariff on sleds coming in from outside the U.S. That would really help our domestic manufacturers stay in business.

    Like the Harley Davidson thing in the '80s for any import motorcycle over 700cc? That was really popular . . .

    Yeah that import thing really made 90's Harley's good and reliable didn't it
    As someone that has worked on many no it didn't it actually did the opposite.
    Restricting sales to only a couple companies basically turns off innovation like a light switch and no competition is a very bad thing for buyers who want a good product.

    The engine in this sled is the most interesting part of the sled for me. my first thoughts were how great this motor would be in a light weight classic era styled sled.
    That's the best thing about it imo.  In 5 years buying those sleds cheap just for the engine.. lots of fun things you could do.

    Hey Ovals ;

    https://nhsa.com/arctic-cat-blast-test/

    Here is one I had a chance to test for a day. I was surprised at how much power there was on tap.  At the end of the day I wasn't tired at all because of the light weight. Considering its 8000 bucks you can buy two for the price of one. I think Cat has got a winner here.....

    Hope this helps, Teamgreen

    The price is pretty out there I think.   But!!  Then again the R&D on a ground up sled.   People have to remember all the people and time involved in building a whole new sled from the ground up.   Who?? Pays for that?   Simple the customer does.    I heard about the 400 cc engine about 3 or 4 years before it came out.   There was a drawing of one I had seen.   Single cylinder case reed, power valve and engine rev engine.    Then a few years later the Yamaha and Cat sleds came out.


         Cat also released a Snow Bike at Hay Days a few years back.   Heard nothing on it since.    What is the cost on R&D on that?   Price itself out of the market?   Plus the state trail rules in Minnesota will not let any thing on a snowmobile trail other than a snowmobile hurts.    It wasn't a timberline or whatever Polaris has.   Cat built a whole snow bike from the ground up.  Engine and all.  If they where smart get rid of the Snow bike part and build a moto cross bike.  Get a American company back into building Moto Cross.    You got Yamaha and Textron help/backing.    You got a few guys riders could put it on the map.  Tucker ran pro moto cross a few years.  He is getting to the too old age now.    Think it would create some buzz.   There is a few pro really good pro riders in/from Minnesota.   The Martin boys  and Henry Miller;)     Henry was a  pro private rider lead the race 2 years ago Spring Creek.  Until he crashed.  Ripped his clutch finger about off went from about last all the way back up to like 12th.   You get Minnesota grown pro riders on your bike.    I think there would  be room for another moto cross bike company out there.

    I agree on the cost of R&D but will add that in some cases, there is money wasted trying to prove something to have value which has already been proved not to. Some push for something that isn't really fiscally smart, like sno-bikes for their customer base, same thing happens in all business I'd imagine. History shows us many cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. that didn't make the customers pull out that wallet. Sno-bikes? I don't know anyone who'd buy one.
    If you can't look back on your younger self and realize you were an idiot, you're probably still an idiot.

    The Rumor Mill Had It: The new Cat snow bike was a good machine but they could not get the thing certified. By that I mean get it to meet the safety standards all new sleds have to meet. That was a non-starter. They were sold as competition machines, as I understand it, the few that were sold. Race machines I guess you can sell so many without meeting the regs. To me this another example of not clearing the deck before you build something. I work for a consumer products company. We make DARN SURE a new product will not hit a regulation brick wall before we invest big bucks and cubic time. Cat was hoping to sell maybe a 100 protos then create a market and get things certified. You could do that in 1965. But not today. Sad deal there.
    I have one very special sled.
    I no longer claim to be omniscient because the rules are more like guidelines.
    Thank God I have more than one hobby.
