That's great to hear.


That amount of booth space at a large trade show costs a small fortune. Definitely not something a company would do if they were giving up.

Trying to put on a good face for potential for buyout? They sure are a mess behind the scenes
I wouldn't doubt that everything Textron owns is for sale if a buyer is willing to pay the right price. But, they're not done reorganizing yet.

I wouldn't look too closely for forward progress at Arctic Cat (snowmobile) until about mid- or late-snow season.

They need to stay relevant and keep people talking about Arctic Cat this season. They're not selling 2020 sleds any more and it's too early to sell 2021's.

If Textron wants Cat to be successful - and, make no mistake, they didn't buy the company to lose money - they will have a big announcement and 2021 model rollout next spring. Until then, they just need to keep the press happy and make sure people who bought 2020's say good things.

Attending trade shows and making noise at strategically advantageous times is very good. Attending this event is a good sign.

The important part of the event is snowmobiles, so Arctic Cat get's the fame and the BILL, more importantly for Textron is in the title "ATV & Powersports" Show. I find it strange that if you DIDN'T snow check a new AC, your going to have a hard time finding a 2020 sled at a dealer, but you could by a 2020 Textron ATV or SXS no problem.
90% or more of us not only have a sled but we also have other off road toys which could include ATV/SXS's, so this is a chance for Textron to try to rescue they're poor ATV/SXS market share in the Canadian market with the EXPENSE of the show on Arctic Cat books which will only add to the AC building losses vs Textrons other products.
Most Arctic Cat dealers are sitting on many to a plethora of 2017-2019 New sleds, (mind you so is Yamaha), maybe AC will offer a SHOW deal on their new left overs, kind of like a "Snow Check" deal on new left overs, which could help AC and their dealers to free up some inventory to be able to ramp up for the 2021 year.
I realize this sounds a bit negative for AC but I'm not trying to be negative in fact WE as sledder's can't afford to lose AC and or Yamaha, hopefully the AC engineers have already start working on major 2021 sled changes to recharge the market for AC and pull them out of this serious tailspin.

The leftover models have already been deeply discounted. I mean, they are in many cases 30% off MSRP. In a recent article where they talked about the reduction in dealerships that were not profitable for them, they referenced this aspect as being very costly and was behind the reason to snow check only sleds this year. Decrease the product in dealerships so they dont have to deeply discount them so dang much essentially making them more valuable.
I would imagine they will return to the traditional method of having dealers maintain inventories of sleds in the near future, but it was a smart move at this time to do it. Yamaha did it a few years ago along with a dramatic reduction in models, which AC did this year as well.
I do find it curious and it has me wondering, there is only 1 model for 2020 with a 4 stroke right? I wonder what is going to happen with the partnership with Yamaha? Anyone recall hearing how long of an agreement that was for?
Im sure Textron would be giddy about building their own 4 strokes to maintain more profit and cost reduction. They have a 1000twin that could potentially fit the bill, but in its current configuration its nowhere near the performance of the 998 triple from yamaha in NA form.

Love it!! I wish they would do this in the states near me, I'd love to see it! Best chassis on the market, even the other manufactures want to use it!!:buttrock: Textron is huge and have great success in what they do, its no wonder they wanted the best sled company as their own, the other manfacturers should consider getting wiser in what they are going to do now.

Now, just thinking out loud here.

Do you think, maybe, cats been in financial trouble since before 2014?

And maybe, just maybe, were the only manufacturer willing and needing to sell their chassis to Yamaha?

I mean building more sleds, even for someone else, can't be all that bad!!??

I'm sure Doo & Poo, being financially good, flat out shot Yamaha down on this type of thing.???

That being said. Nice to see Cat put out an effort here. I hope the second gen ctec is a winner and the Phoenix rises from the ashes!!

What I don't get is the ctech 800 was talked up so much and cat guys swear its the best thing ever why did they completely change it?
Poo has been doing the same since 01. Every year better, improved.

Doo, while better, never had a rock solid 800 from 01 till the etec came. Ptek was horrible!

They went bankrupt is why textron bought them not for there chassis :blink: Best chassis ever? With the biggest flaw using the jack shaft as a engine mount that has given them issues since they came out
