Will future Arctic Cat snowmobiles look anything like this?
I doubt it. But it does beg the question: Why aren’t there wild custom snowmobiles, built primarily to LOOK unique, like there is with motorcycles and automobiles?
I suspect that part of the reason there aren’t many wild, custom sleds, is that the number of snowmobile enthusiasts is far less than motorcycle enthusiasts, which means there are probably fewer customizers, thus fewer possibilities for such sleds.
I also suspect there are a fair number of people willing to spend $100,000 on a custom motorcycle that can’t be ridden any further than the one-mile from the trailer to the bike show, but not so many snowmobilers who are willing to spend that kind of dough on a trailer queen.
Maybe the short snowmobile season is also a factor?
For sure it would help if snowmobiling had a “reality” TV show of a dysfunctional family, constantly fighting about some project build they’re trying to finish, and are running low on time and patience.
There are many custom snowmobiles, of course, but they seem built for performance rather than show. Maybe it’s in the DNA of snowmobilers to focus on performance rather than style?
Do you agree with me that there aren’t so many wild, custom sleds? If yes, got an opinion why?
