2017 Arctic Cat ATV & UTVs: The First Wave

(7/1/2016)

2017 Arctic Cat ATV and UTV first wave

Arctic Cat just released the first wave of its 2017 ATV/UTV product line. A quick glance at the offerings shows an emphasis on MSRP price reductions on several key models; bold new graphics; and a re-emphasis on the so-called 2017 models that it had already released a few months ago.

Arctic Cat also pared down its model line-up for next year, dropping several models (including many of the 1000 engine-equipped machines) as well as package variations.

Notable in the release of information is that there is no mention of the full-sized Wildcat X and 4X models, two popular machines that have clearly NOT been put out to pasture.

In Cat’s letter to the media, it also mentioned that what we’re seeing today is just the first wave of new models, and that subsequent models will be released later this year (with no mention of what those machines might be).

I’m reaching for my calculator to figure out what 2 + 2 equals. In the meantime, click for some pix and details of this first wave of 2017 Arctic Cat dirt machines.

Moab, Utah, is THE off-road playground of all playgrounds.

Trails galore; some of the most rugged natural beauty you'll find anywhere in the world; and an open-arms policy towards people on side-by-sides, ATVs, Jeeps, motorcycles and mountain bikes.

Which are all reasons why the 2016 Rally on the Rocks was a great place to be last week.

Speedwerx and Arctic Cat made themselves heard loud and clear at the Highlifter Mud Nationals in Jacksonville, Texas, at which they unveiled a custom Wildcat Sport powered by a Speedwerx-tuned 170-hp Suzuki 800cc 2-stroke engine from an 8000-Series snowmobile!

Holy (two) smokes!

Amidst a veritable sea of lifted, jacked, blaring and otherwise custom side-by-sides and ATVs, the 2-stroke Wildcat turned more heads and elicited more dropped jaws than anything else that I saw during my three days there.

The explosion of views, likes and shares on that ol’ barometer of interest we call Facebook underlined the fact that this buggy captured peoples’ imaginations. Yep, it went viral, baby.

So what EXACTLY is this tire-smoking beast that Speedwerx built, and what’s its future?

Click and roost on.
