4 WAYS CAT COULD CHANGE THE FUTURE
We think Arctic Cat has a very bright future and will have a big effect on the snowmobile industry over the next ten years.
Here's four reasons why:
The largest selling engine segment appears to be the 800-850 2-stroke category. There's a reason this engine size is included in so many models and Arctic Cat has wasted no time getting its new slot-injected engine into as many models as possible. If the new 800 proves to be as strong a performer as we think it will be, it will change Cat’s image in the industry in a big way.
There's tremendous focus on the mountain market and with a new engine and a thoroughly modified Ascender mountain platform, Cat could make big strides in that market segment, converting over both Polaris and Ski-Doo hardcores. Believe us, this new sled has the props to change perceptions.
ZR 200 SERIES
This new model segment is in its infancy and maybe sales numbers won’t knock the earth off its axis, initially. However, every new 200 sold will create a new enthusiast - probably several more, as riders share rides on these sleds. This is a big deal for the industry and bodes well for the future of snowmobiling.
Cat's alliances with Yamaha, Kymco and Textron are providing a very diverse and secure set of resources for the future. Textron's deep pockets and financial resources add a ton of security to the company. The engine alliances are fantastic because they allow Cat to produce a huge selection of very EPA clean engines in various segments without investing millions in R&D.
