Hum "all new v-twin motor" that got my attention. Something smaller than 951cc maybe. Something that will also make it into the ATV's.... I dunno

Regarding a 50" wildcat- IT'S ABOUT TIME AC.

I missed that. They are really taking the bull by the horns at St. Cloud plant. New 600 Two Stroke sled and now this. Makes me proud to be a cat only owner of sleds and wheelers. Oh, wait, I do have a Polaris but I did give that to the step daughter. Does that count?

This isn't the wildcat x we are talking about, there have been rumours about a new smaller V-twin floating around for quite some time, as well as a new quad chassis with wildcat style suspension.

I talked with a guy at a mud run this summer who said he worked in St. Cloud and he said it was a 750ish v-twin. Just a rumor though. I really hope they don't wimp out and put the 700H1 motor in them. This thing will need to compete with the popo's 50 inch.

What if Cat was gonna use a smaller V-twin that was turbo'd? I know a guy with a 800 turbo'd RZR and a 900XP turbo'd and the 800 puts 125hp to the ground and the 900 puts 180hp to the ground. I think the Webber motor that I would like to swap into my RZR4 is 130hp stock and that's a 750 turbo from one of Polaris's sleds I think. It would be pretty cool if Cat was the first to have a stock turbo'd motor in one of their Wildcats.

they have a blacked out wild cat limited build coming. It will come with super aggressive bead lock tires, aluminum doors, yoshi pipe, Top of the line fox shocks (appeared to be kashima coated) and some other changes. They had it at the cat show. My dealer showed me pictures of it. Looked pretty nice

they need that 50"model to be built like the full size wildcat just smaller, 1000 lbs or less and under $10000 to compete with a RZR 800! In nys thats all there is because you cant be over 50" wide and over 1000 lbs to register

This is great news, I've been wanting to buy a WC but they are no use on the trails. This along with a new engine, AC is finally stepping up their game. Let's hope they revamp all of their engines as Can Hams are just beasts with their heavy HP engines they offer. I am in the market for a side x side and just last weekend I went to a Can Am dealer and drove the Maverick X rs and that thing is a beast. With a 102 HP it's fast and I like the handling and ride better then the WildCat. I own a AC atv and am a die hard AC owner but the Hams a better performer so I hope the new 50" stands up to the Maverick.

Haven't heard anything in a while. I can't wait though. I think this new 50" model is going to be popular, depending on price. As 98woody said, if they can keep it under $10k it's going to be a home run!
