Looks like thsi thing is a little piggy at 1305 lbs dry weight. They have it on the site.
Well then shorten it up, remove the power steering and the doors, and kill off that spectacular suspension. Those huge shocks have to weigh something along with all that steel in the suspension.Weighs more than the commander! With the design of it I really expected it to be around 1100-1200 lbs.
plus the Wildcat has a better suspension...Since it already has power steering and doors I would say the weight is about right.
It is only 115 lbs over the XP . . . . . add power steering to the XP and doors . . . ..
The math says 96 horses is dead equal to the XP power to weight.
the quality of the build has me concerned also.Shit Adam the first one that come sin im taking apart to see what up with everything. How the clutching is, where the wiring harness lays and so on. Before i buy one there have had made alot of changes. Ive been down thsi road wayyy to many time with ac and before i buy another one i wanna be sure it is what it is.
the wildcat is as light or lighter than the XP and commander. the commander,
although can-ams website says it weights 1300, is a lie. i weighed a commander new out of the crate no accessories, no fluids, 1532lbs.
i also weighed a new XP900. their site claims somewhere in the 1200lbs range right? somehow the brand new unit i got my hands on was nearly 1450.
anybody wonder why??? its because the polaris and can-am are both imports and claim a lighter weight than they actually are to save money on import duties. nice try imports. the wildcat is made in USA and their weight is more on target with what it actually weighs. the wildcat is faster than an XP and commander in a straight line, corners, and everything in between. dont let numbers on a paper fool you. the wildcat for now will be king of the hill. mike give it a little time. when you get to ride one you will know. its stats that have been posted as of now may be a little shy of what you wanted, but believe me this machine is a bad bish
