How about 2 up with heated seats and all the bells and whistles.

Put the 2 up kit on the thundercat. The kit comes with warmers and a heated seat

Still not even close to a true two up luxury touring machine. Reference ski doo's offering.

Polaris has the Titan, and that's it for dedicated 2-up seating. Not exactly luxury touring.

I asked a Polaris factory rep about that and he suggested a convertible backseat option on the Indy XC, similar to what Cat is offering.

Looks like Ski Doo is the ticket for you.

I don't even like ski too but they are the only true touring option. I have 2 t660 le's, the green ones that I will likely drive until I die. One is a two up and the other is a single seater. FWIW I caught a ride in a p-51 once.....way cool.

Find a new non current Pantera, dealers still have some but after the 2020 line up was introduced and people found out they discontinued the 7000 touring they started buying up the 2018 & 2019's.

your 660 is a whopping 110 hp, the pantera 7000's are 125-130, and do everything light years better than the 660 could dream of doing.
lighter, faster, more powerful, better riding, better handling, and on...


They didn't build any 2020's because there are so many leftovers in the field.

Average price of Pantera xt limited is 15k. It doesn't have the turbo punch of the t660. It's certainly not lighter. It's good it's a triple. On a relatively smooth trail ride quality would not be noticeably better. No remote start that I currently have. Yea, it's a better machine than I had given it credit for being but I think there MAY be major changes in cat's product line soon so I will wait to see what happens unless the 19 deluxe Pantera's become deeply discounted.
