I don’t think you can get anymore high performance touring than the tcat.

The lean product lineup doesn't bother me. They said this was a rebuilding year and that they needed to clear non-current inventory. Their actions seem to be consistent with that.

I've ridden both the 2020 Thundercat iACT and the ZR 8000 Limited iACT and would consider them both excellent high performance touring sleds. I really enjoyed them both. The arm stretching, G-Loc inducing acceleration of the T-Cat was pretty cool. Breathtaking, actually. Yet, trail manners were outstanding.

People are rightfully concerned about the future, because they can't see what's coming next. That's understandable, but I'd worry if they could see it, because so could the competition. Not only do they need to impress riders and buyers in 2021, but they need to do something that nobody sees coming.

I believe Arctic Cat can do it, but more importantly that they will.

It will be fine. They did the same thing with the 600 but no one noticed because no cares about the 600.
