Pretty boring on here right now. Any news on the 2014 sleds? Is cat going to finally tip their hand and show what they have up their sleeve for a new motor in the 600 2 stroke class?

I sure hope we see that new 600 this spring, I was hoping for a midseason release but with low snow my guess no way they will wait until March.

It's coming. In one form or another, it's coming. Be it DI technology or chassis swap and engine swap...it's coming.....

There will be better rumors out after the mags ride. But no articles until after the manus do their own reveals first.

well, how fast the info leaks in always the question. But seems someone always gets a "spy" photo or two during these events. Guess we will keep waiting......

Just a thought... how about fixing the chassis first? Look at these Procross threads and ask what it tells you?

ding ding ding we have a winnner!


cat cant make a sled right now that doesnt eat belts and or turn into a $10-14k brick. Some have been fortunate but others are far from it. They would be fools to release another motor without getting their chassis right first.
