PostSubject: artic cat "wildcat sxs" 2012   Fri Mar 25, 2011 6:40 am

Saw this on the internet this morning...looks awesome.

Hi Tech Motor sports- Latest Scoop I can find: - The machine you see in the videos is very close to production. The marketing supply guys might try to change a couple little things, but other than that, you are looking at a very near production machine.

64 inches wide, 16-17 inches wheel travel, 95+hp, steering box and tie rods are front design ( in front of a-arms fro strength),tube chassis, doors, reservoir shocks and more....

As for release, you can look for orders to be opened up after the dealer show in August, with deliveries being from October to January. MSRP will be very close to $15,900. Less than the RZR XP900. Arctic Cat knew very well about the XP last year and built this machine to annihilate it....

Here is some more info on it.


ARCTIC CAT WILDCAT 1000 HO

Race-Inspired, Pure-Sport ROV Made in America



Inspired by the unforgiving terrain of the Baja 1000, engineered to attack the gnarliest obstacles with precision and control, and crafted in America by a company dedicated to performance and quality, the all-new Arctic Cat Wildcat V-Twin 1000H.O. debuts as themost potent pure-sport recreational off-road vehicle (ROV) ever built.

With industry-leading suspension travel, 13 inches of ground clearance, a full-perimeter frame and the largest displacement engine in its class, the Wildcat is a full-production version ofwhatwas previously reserved for off-road race vehicles.

“TheWildcat has no equal. Period,” said Claude Jordan, Arctic Cat President and CEO. “Our customers asked for a high-performance side-byside, andwe happily responded with a no-compromise, pure-sport hot rod that redefines what’s possible with a production off-road vehicle.”

SUSPENSION Ultimate Long Travel

The Wildcat can effortlessly hammer through whoops and dunes thanks to a front and rear suspension combination that rivals those used on off-road race buggies.

At the rear is an industry-first 5-pointmulti-link trailing armsuspension that keeps the tires' contact patches flatwhile the suspension moves through its industry-leading 18 inches of travel. The unique 5-point multi-link minimizes camber and axle plunge to soak up the harshest terrain without compromising handling and steering.

The double-wishbone front suspension boasts a best-in-class 17 inches of travel,with geometry that’s optimized for stability and control. Both the front and rear suspensions are dampened byWalker Evans Racing shocks.

Designed from a lifetime of off-road competition and experience and also made in the USA, these remote reservoir shocks are machined frombillet aluminum and feature 17-position compression dampening adjustability, dual-rate springs and preload adjustment. They’re calibrated with ample ride-in to keep the Wildcat’s tires on the ground,with consistent dampening for hours of hard riding.

The all-new Duro Kaden 14-in tires were developed specifically for the Wildcat, utilizing an elongated tread pattern designed to extend to the tires shoulder, providing excellent cornering, traction, performance and durability in rough conditions.

Full-Perimeter Exoskeleton

The foundation for the Wildcat’s suspension is a full-perimeter frame that sets a newstandard in strength, rigidity and durability. Usually found only in off-road race trucks, the chassis is constructed from High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) steelwith a full-perimeter exoskeleton design that’s a first in the ROV class.

With a 40/60 front/rearweight distribution, the Wildcat’s front end remains light for optimal handling when tackling gnarly terrain. Occupants in the cockpit of the Wildcat are positioned close to the low center- of-gravity (CG), leaving them less affected bymovements of the suspension and chassis and producing a more comfortable and confident ride.

1000 H.O. ENGINE

Built in St. Cloud,Minnesota The 1000 H.O engine that powers the new Wildcat is the largest displacement engine in the Pure Sport category, and the idealmatch for the industry-leading suspensions and chassis combo. Built in the USA by Arctic Cat, the 951cc V-Twin, SOHC 4-stroke with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) has proven itself on the Prowler XTZ.

On the Wildcat, the 1000 H.O. has been tuned to deliver even stronger acceleration thanks to the extra torque and horsepower provided by heavy breathing 50mm throttle bodies, a new 2-into-1 ceramic-coated exhaust and an all-newair intake system. The close-coupled, mid-chassis engine location neutralizes the Wildcat’s handling, maximizes the rider/passenger volume and reduces cockpit noise.

The engine transfers power to the driveshaft via the Duramatic automatic CVT transmission. The addition of the Spike Load Dampener (SLD) allows the driveline to slip for a millisecond under harsh spikeloads, reducing the torque load to the systemfor optimal durability.

A console-mounted shifter allows quicker gear selection between Reverse, Neutral, High and Low gears. Likewise, a dash-mounted switch activates 2- or 4-wheel drive with differential lock. Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes provide strong, enhanced braking.

Electronic Power Steering

Yet another first-in-class technology, the addition of Arctic Cat’s Variable Assist Electronic Power Steering (EPS) on theWildcat delivers even greater steering control and ease.

The EPS systemis amanaged electronic control unit (ECU) thatmeasures steering input force, tire resistance and vehicle speed, and then provides the appropriate assist to the steering column through an electricmotor. Steering assistance begins at idle, and varies based on the above inputs.

The result: Light steering input effort at speed while maintaining the right amount of driver feedback to feel the limits of traction and control. The power assist is particularly noticeable at low speeds and when in 4WD (especially with the differential locked), where its reduced steering effort eases changing direction or navigating tough obstacles like washouts, rocks ormud.

INTERIOR

Comfortable and Controlled Arctic Cat engineers designed the Wildcat’s interior for optimal occupant comfort, control and visibility. Contoured, high-back bucket seats with upper body supports deliver exceptional comfort and body stability, and rival any aftermarket suspension seat on themarket.

The cut and sewn design cradles theWildcat occupants tominimize fatigue. A 3-point seat beltwith an anti-cinch design keeps you in place and comfortable through the harshest terrain. Getting in and out of the Wildcat is quick and easy thanks to a tube-frame doorwith integrated nets.

Pivoting fromthe rear and latching at the front via a simple one-latchmechanism, the doors open quickly and easily, swinging out of theway for hassle-free entry/departure. An infinitely adjustable tilt steeringwheel allows you to adjust your steering preferences.

A new 5-inch digital/analog round gauge provides great readabilitywith itsmid-dash location. It displays up to 14 critical operations including: clock/hour meter, fuel level,mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, differential lock, drive select, high beam, battery condition, temperature and oil pressure.

A locking glove box offers ample, convenient storage,while two easyto- reach cup holders are located where beverages won’t interferewith driving controls or arms.

PREMIUM FEATURES

The all-newWildcat is richwith premiumfeatures startingwith two automotive- style painted color choices: BlackMetallic or Arctic GreenMetallic. Class-leading LED headlights and taillights project a light that’s clearer than an HID,with two times brighter Lumens than a halogen system(while utilizing 50 percent less wattage).

The Wildcat’s rear cargo bed has the largest capacity in its classwith a 300 lb. payload to carry a cooler and additional fuel containers. A 12V accessory outlet is located in the center console for GPS or cell phone adapters.

The alternator capacity has been increased for accessory lights, radios orwinches. The underside of theWildcat features full-protection HDPE skid plates to glide over protruding obstacles, while the chassis utilizes maintenance- free bushings for hassle-free durability.

ACCESSORIES Simple Customization

Arctic Catwill offer more than 50 Wildcat-specific products for the ultimate in customization. These easy-toinstall parts, accessories and upgrades can be used to personalize and compliment the lines of the ultimate pure sport ROV.

An array of trick lightweight aluminum protective accessories will be available, like front and rear pre-runner bumpers, rock sliders, A-arm guards and skid plates.

A contoured half windshield with a dust management system will divert thewind up and over the rider while the stylized T-top style roof with integrated rear spoiler and built in headliner has roomto install your tunes.

Look for other items like a gas can holder, spare tire carrier, cooler holder, fender flares and a box cover to arrive shortly among a host of other products.

Yeah really...Its seems the last two SxS's i looked at was $12K plus. If I buy anything new I guess it would be a new 2011 King Quad 750 or 500. I seen a new 2011 Blue 750 With Power Steering for $7395 yesterday.
