    Need more than 1000cc? I drove a Prowler 1000 last year and that thing was insane. No wonder that every one my local dealer has seen have been rolled several times. The suspension just can't handle the umphh the 1000 makes. So, Cat brings out a machine that now has the suspension that can handle the 1000, but most of us don't have the skills to keep up with it. Ask your local Polaris dealer how many RZR's are coming in wrecked...it's a bunch this year.

    The most impressive spec is that 18 inches of suspension travel! I think it is going to need some huge aftermarket wheel flares to keep Alaskan mud out of the cockpit.

    This is not a big go cart. I think you will see it running the BAJA as is...........

    The suspension travel is for us old guys.

    As for the mud GO FASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!! The right tires and the right driver this thing should plane across the mud.

    This thing looks sweet. I bet it takes a healthy bite outta the RZR market. I've got a buddy who is a die-hard polaris guy and is toying with shaking the RZR to get one of these...

    Heard thru the grapevine of one dealer having at least 12 people trying to pre order. Price due to be released 15 Sept. If I remember correctly the snowmachines will complete their build here by next month or so and then ATV production will start. So 1st deleveries may be Dec/Jan timeframe.
