NEW 2017 WILDCAT W/ ROBBY GORDON SUSPENSION


ARCTIC CAT INTRODUCES SECOND ROUND OF 2017 ATV & ROV MODELS
New Wildcat X and Wildcat 4x Models with RG PRO Suspension and Chassis Improvements; Plus All-New Alterra 300 ATV

Minneapolis, Minn. (Sept. 16, 2016) – Arctic Cat continued its foot-on-the-gas approach to new ROV and ATV model introductions by releasing its second wave of new-for-2017 models, including the new Wildcat X and Wildcat 4X models featuring the all-new RG PRO rear suspension as well as the re-designed value-priced Alterra 300 ATV.

Three new Wildcat side-by-sides headline the latest 2017 model releases: the two-occupant Wildcat X EPS and Wildcat X Limited EPS, plus the four-occupant Wildcat 4X EPS. All three models feature an entirely new RG PRO rear suspension package that was designed in partnership with racing legend Robby Gordon and aimed at professional-level riders who demand the ultimate big bump off-road performance.

The innovative X models also feature new race-inspired ROPS cage; KING aluminum gas shocks; custom cast-aluminum KMC wheels; and a host of chassis improvements for pro-level performance. The results deliver the most capable off-road machines available, with custom features and pricing that exceed previous standards.

High-value and low-price are the hallmarks of the new Alterra 300 ATV, a redesigned machine that blends full-sized features, durable engine performance and rugged Alterra styling.

These four machines join the six new models introduced in June for yet another unprecedented rollout of new models in a single season. Arctic Cat now offers 30 class-leading machines for all categories of off-road work and play.

“We’ve expanded our 2017 line of Arctic Cat dirt products to provide the most innovative technology, maximum performance and class-leading value,” said Greg Williamson, Arctic Cat Chief Marketing Officer, “And we’re not done yet! These models and subsequent machines will continue to deliver the ultimate off-road experience to every enthusiast.”

For the price point I think AC just nailed the entry level 1k market. Lots of value there with full doors, awesome tires, awesome shocks, best factory cage on the market... still could use a hp boost but for the money you can't beat it!

The SST Races at the Sand Sports Show featured a few Arctic Cats racing against Cheek and some other fully built / raced out RZRs.

I went on Saturday and had a great view of the both the front stretch launchers. There were two lines and separate consecutive jumps w/ landings for each line to create a rhythm. The RZRs and I assume their pilots were not enjoying the the landing in the last rhythm, at all. Pretty much a full case and hard impact.

The Arctic Cats would just eat it up lap after lap. It was pretty impressive actually. These Cats seem like they have a real total package platform where you dont have to dump tons money and upfit a truck load of after market parts.

Remember that the Wildcats that Robby, Sheldon and the others were racing weren't "exactly" the same as the off-the-showroom floor models that will be sold. I think those cars have quite a bit more suspension tuning and time on them set up for this racing.

With that said, I did see the same as you. Considering how much faster the RZRs were than the ACs, it was impressive to see how well RG and Sheldon can wheel those things.
