MINNEAPOLIS — Arctic Cat Inc. (NASDAQ:ACAT) announces its second wave of new 2017 model year ATVs and side-by-side recreational off-road vehicles (ROVs), including new Wildcat X and Wildcat 4X models that feature an all-new RG PRO rear suspension, and a value-priced Alterra 300 ATV.
“We are making rapid progress developing new product innovations and are pleased to begin delivering ROV models designed in partnership with Robby Gordon. This is the second of our three planned new ROV/ATV product waves to be introduced this fiscal year,” says Christopher Metz, Arctic Cat’s president and chief executive officer.
Headlining the latest 2017 models are three new Wildcat side-by-sides: 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 Arctic Cat designed with racing legend Robby Gordon. The RG PRO rear suspension is the same tested and proven design used by Robby Gordon in Stadium Side-X-Side races. The RG PRO suspension is aimed at professional-level riders who demand the ultimate big bump off-road performance.
The Wildcat X models also feature new race-inspired ROPS cages; KING aluminum gas shocks; custom cast-aluminum KMC wheels; and a host of chassis improvements for professional-level handling and performance.
In addition, Arctic Cat is introducing the new Alterra 300 ATV. High-value and low-price are the hallmarks of the new Alterra 300, which blends full-sized features, durable engine performance and rugged Alterra styling.
“We’ve expanded our 2017 line of Arctic Cat dirt products to provide the most innovative technology, maximum performance and class-leading value, and we’re not done yet,” says Greg Williamson, Arctic Cat chief marketing officer. “These models and subsequent machines will continue to deliver the ultimate off-road experience to every enthusiast.”
Arctic Cat’s second wave of new dirt products join the six new models introduced in June for an unprecedented rollout of new models in a single season. Arctic Cat now offers 30 class-leading ROV and ATV machines for all categories of off-road work and play.
