Everything in that says arctic cat is for sale. Chopped everything they could, very low inventory at atcual cat dealers (aka no skin in the game), we have sub contract work, no one will loose there job (aka factory is as lean as it could be with sub contract work).

I think this was on snowmobile.com and that website is trash Clickbate. AC doesn’t really help the situation with there “class hp” claims

It says Arctic Cat has removed unnecessary spending and needs to be smarter going forward, but I don't think its for sale or needs to be.
IMO Arctic Cat's dirt division needs to have its own moniker. Like Sea Doo for watercraft, Ski-Doo for snow and Can-Am for land. I think that's really helped Bombardier and its sub-companies clarify things with consumers, as simple and ridiculous as it sounds.

When you hear or read the name 'Arctic something' you think snow. They need a name that clarifies the dirt aspect and this would be the opportune time to do so...usually I am good at brainstorming names but so far all I got is 'Dirt Cat', which is dumb, but maybe 'Tiger Cat' with cool orange or green graphics and stripes emulating various tigers, and they could use various tiger names again to name products, like the Prowler.
Tiger Cat Jaguar, Tiger Cat Cougar, ext.
