Spy Photo of a New Arctic Cat?

(2/5/2010)

The fact that the hood can’t be seen, in concert with the bright green spindles/A-arms and seat pattern, suggest it’s a 2011 model

I know it’s a few weeks before Arctic Cat releases information on its 2011. Anyone care to venture a guess about this sled?
