    What in the actual f@$& is going on?

    No more Arctic cat wildcat it's textron wildcat. No XX no RG Pro to speak of. I think this is a dark day for us. I hate to say it but textron is making me want a Polaris just to be spiteful.

    My gut tells me you're right. I never thought Arctic cat was perfect but I liked how they took care of the customer. I don't get that feeling about Textron. It's like a big crap sandwich I just got to take a bite of.

    hey at least we don't have to listen to people talk about some sxs that doesn't even exist that we have been hearing about for the last couple years and the for the people who have been waiting can actually move on and buy something else.

    The irony is this site isn't even blowing up... seems most are spinning it to be positive or in denial. IDK ... it's bizarre.

    The worst thing you can do when you buy a company is change the name. You make point to advertise "under new management" or something but you don't change the name it becomes something no ones heard of and no trusts new stuff like this.

    Yup, all the character in the brand just went out the window. Cat has earned a reputation for having some seriously loyal customers. "Bleeding Green". Textron would have done well to be a bit more creative if they wanted to try and appeal to non-snow belt customers. I think Wildcat for the entire dirt line up would have been a great way to acknowledge the history within the brand.

    Now we can see it for what it is. Generic ATV company inc.

    So I bought an 05 rhino brand new when they were released. Drove it till it died in '13. I had planned on doing the same with my 14 4 limited cat. Are the parts going to be there when they are needed? Do I need to consider going to a new machine x3 max soon?

    Yes I totally agree. I'm pissed! I have been a loyal Cat customer for decades. Textron is going to find out what brand loyalty means. I think they lose sales over this. I know I've gone from being excited about waiting to buy a new CAT XX to looking into X3 or YXZ.
    What does this do to the value of our AC Wildcats?


    Just a thought....gotta change all our names on here....fasttron, fasttex, uhh never mind... yuuchh!!!

    I had noticed they dropped the Bad boy name. Well it sucked anyway. Smacks of immaturity or something to that effect. But to dump Acrtic Cat????????? A name that has been recognized for decades and was just beginning to make a strong headway into the SXS field. Textron got no recognition what so ever, and the fact their management is this stupid, clearly means this line is going to die.

    Want a really good stock tip. Short sell Textron stock, because they just shot themselves in the foot and the 4-wheeler and UTV lineup that AC had made good inroads on will begin to be market losers. Only the snowmobiles will make the shell of old AC any money now.
