Where I live I don't see many Arctic Cats but after reading about and watching videos of this new trail it looks pretty good.  60+ hp, 10 inches of travel and only 50" wide, I bet it is crazy in the woods.

Kevin I got to look and set in a 1000 when I was shopping. Very impressive ! I have yet to see one on our trail or talk to someone that has one. Interested in hearing what people have to say.......

It's crazy that they are as small as they are and running 65mph from the factory.  I would like to sit in one and check it out.  I don't know that my 265lbs would fit very well in one.  If it was a single seat with everything in the middle, that would be awesome.

The seating is tight in them, for sure ! That is the first thing I'm not crazy about on my RZR...inside the cab is narrow and when You sit in it, it is like You are starring at the A post....Rhino had me spoiled !!!

All I hear around here is no one can keep all the parts together, always something coming loose or falling off, just not dependable for very long, guys traded them off, mainly the 1000's, not much history on the 50''

A teryx or viking is huge compared to one of these though.  The thing I like about it is how compact it is and still has good suspension.  One of the reviews I watched said that this was the best fit and finish he had seen out of arctic cat.

990 lbs : 60 HP = good power to weight ratio = feel good factor

i think the rzrs have better suspension.

Yeah, I was talking to Rodney about that earlier today.  I don't think I could bring myself to buy an Arctic Cat but I figure the other manufacturers will make something similar soon.  I would be interested if Polaris made one.  I went and looked at an XP 1000 in person yesterday, holy crap those things are huge.

I like the styling, wish the new Yamaha would have been a little more to this sizing.  Looks to have more capacity than a RZR in the bed.  Not crazy about the arctic cat machines that i've ridden with and on, but to each his own.  My Rhino is mechanically stock with a few cosmetic additions and I am happy with its ability...just gotta get it a little more sport.  Waiting on the happy funds to come in.  The price point is not bad on the machine though, should put a dent in the RZR market if it proves to be dependable/capable.

And I'll also say that I looked hard (HARD) at the Vikings befor I picked up the Rhino.  Had a dealer ready to go with a good price (under retail) but the sheer size pushed me away.  And I'm glad to say I didn't pull the trigger on it, because the trails in and out of some of my hunting spots this year, and some of my riding trails...tight on the Rhino, impossible with the wider Viking.  Which brings me to why I bought the Rhino, size, capability, durability...No bushings wearing out every few hundred miles, etc.

The Wildcat Trail, is pointed well at the trail market by size, speed, power, bed capacity....

The Viking should have been called the Viking Farm Use.

Polaris makes an RZR 800 XC that's 55" wide with 26” Maxxis Bighorn tires, Walker Evans shocks, PRP Seats, power steering. but its also $15,299 compared the $11,999 Artic Cat.

For $3300 I can do a lot with the Artic Cat like PRP seats , Elka or any other shock , Trail Bright Led lights  Cool , roof and a bunch of other stuff.

I dunno it was big but when Fat Boy backed into the hole that bubba and scott where stuck in and ripped it!!! He sprayed mud everywhere I mean had no problem turning the tires, and I was impressed… Until he splashed me and the kids with water LOL You had to be there. Tommy would understand he got it to.

they deff have the looks that's for sure but that's all they have my buddy bought a 1000 wildcat an it wouldn't run after 26 miles so he brought it back an bought a rzr s an so far he hasn't had a problem with the rzr other than a arm bushings an the front cv guards would hit the caliper when he turned hard an he would loose his brakes until he pumped them up an those were dealer add ons

I hate to say it but I have been looking very hard at the 800s and the 900 xp. And seems with just a few little tweaks they can be very good machines.
