of course it doesn't, but it's not 'new' like the rx-motion and pro-CC which are highly regarded by the media.

high tech sensors and shit that can fail, which you won't be able to work on yourself.

Fake News! That's the problem, too many opinions by a bunch of zeros. Get out and ride, enjoy whatever you have, just be safe!

nope, cuz Luke says so.

watch out for me in a few years on the trail, I'll be the guy staring down at my Nav/Tach/Fuel Gauge, emailing my fault codes all while I'm picking out music, sending a text and figuring out which bar to drink at next at 97mph, because t-e-c-h-n-o-l-o-g-y.

Say what you want but it sells it's all about marketing and the Snowmobiling community eats it up. Cat needs to find a gimmick they can't keep running on Racing and the old green and black.

What would it take for Cat to get 10% more of the market? New chassis?? New 900?? New GPS gauge??

Bring back the old three holer in an EPA forum and a new chassis they would kill the competition. Just wishful thinking but if they did I would break out my old Black and Green leathers. Cat was fun as hell in the 3 cylinder days.

Problem is, all the guys with the passion have being axed. Anyone thatís left is more concerned with keeping their job than innovating.

Congrats to Doo on the release. They just made the ugliest sleds on the snow uglier. What a great BNG year for them!
