Sled: 2013 Arctic Cat 1000 XT
The new sleds and SxS's look pretty legit for 2019. But, since I own neither and am an ATV enthusiast, the pickings are much slimmer. Guess they probably can't do the entire off road lineup at once, but the Textron selection for 2018/19 are certainly not inspiring. Guess we'll see what 2020 brings...although I'll probably be getting a new machine before then and it doesn't look like it'll be an AC/Textron.

Current Quad: 2013 Arctic Cat 1000 XT

But as far as trail line up. Cosmetic designers should be fired. Purple and green? Did they not survey the public of what they want and expect?
Only Cat green sleds are RR's? WTF. If not purple then only other option for trail models beside the RR's is a bland black one.
AC green is part of their brand. Even people who don't actively snowmobile but have heard of AC know those are the green ones.
Electronic on the fly suspension changes, is it a huge selling point, don't think so, could have put QS3 on all sleds and 90% of cat people would been fine with.
Electronic suspension on a dinisour dash board. 2 steps forward and 10 steps backwards.
Just my 2 cents
Purple is only available as one of 2 color choices on limited edition sleds.

The IACT suspension consists of QS3 shocks that you can switch on the fly from the bars, also when the sled is engaged into reverse no matter what firmness setting you have it in, the rear suspension shock automatically clicks into the firm setting to aid in stopping the compression of the rear shock and sucking the snowflap into the track.

Nothing wrong with purple. Fond memories of using Arctic Cat Purple Power Lube premixed with gas in Dad's 1972 Panther 399. Woo Hoo.

Just trying to make the young mans dreams come true.

His 120 is only a year old but every time he rides it he wants me to make it faster.

I was offered a ZR120 for my 7 year olds this year. I really had to think hard about it, they would have a ball for sure but it's *almost* to small for them already. My son sat on a 200 recently and it looked like a much better fit.

Just a little to much for my wallet at the moment.
