FIRST RIDE: 2011 ARCTIC CAT TURBO TOURING
Cat's new Turbo touring is essentially the same sled as it was last year, but this year we actually have one in our Supertrax press fleet all winter.
We rode this sled 2-up the other day on a 70 mile run and we continue to be impressed with it.
After the ride, one of the editors commented: "I'm glad we've given this sled high status in our Best in Class Awards the last couple of years. It really is an amazing piece of equipment."
Incidentally, we like this sled in its non-turbocharged 2-up iteration just as much as the Turbo - but, WOW, does the turbocharger ever make this thing fast!
Frankly we think most 2-up buyers will be completely satisfied with the 123 hp EFI version but this one with 175-plus ponies is a rocket ship!
The comfort amenities, like seat heaters and easy-to-adjust hand heaters front and rear certainly add to the level of comfort but it's the overall handling of this chassis and the great ride that make it a perfect choice for long rides with two onboard.
We especially like the removable seat and long cargo area at the rear for single passenger riding and pick-up truck sized room for bags.
