Default Arctic Cat putting stickers on Yamaha made snowmobile



Okay, so only 1-in-500 people reading this care about the utility segment. For those of you who do, Arctic Cat brings the new Bearcat XT into its palette of choice for 2018 and featuring a 540cc fan-cooled twin with single carburetor; Hi/Lo tranny; TSS front suspension; 20 x 156 x 1.5-in. Cobra track; 37.8-in. ski stance; E-start and revers; ample under-seat storage; and a 400-watt output. Yes, it’s a rebadged Yamaha Viking.

Maybe Textron will buy out the Yamaha sled portion of Yamaha.

Now wouldn't that be a great rumor to start.

Well Cat killed almost all of their 2 stroke fan sleds, so I guess is just to keep the few customers that wanted that.

I sat on a VK last year at the spring show and that seat is horrible.

Yamaha just updated the plastic on them recently. I saw one at the dealership before they did that and thought it was a vintage sled they had on display

Jesus fucking Christmas this joke partnership has had more turns than, As the World Turns! Even if these are The Days of our Lives, it's gonna put someone in the General Hospital.

Why in the hell would Yamaha build a few hundred of them and ship them here when they could just ship the motor over and throw it in a bearcat. Wife was skiing in the french alps this week and sent me a pic of the AC bearcats at the ski hill...made me smile.
