Is the skid slide action or is the front arm bolted up??? Arm looks longer. Don't ask the Lester that did the video on the 23 9000 RIOT. He called that skid a slide action which it is not. Kinda wondering how close the new skid is to the RIOT Crossaction?

Why is this discussion in the Polaris Matryx forum?

From the side it looks like an ugly green painted IQR. Didn’t Polaris quit making IQR’s 5-6 years ago? Only 600cc.. Polaris went 650cc in 21. Cat is sadly still behind.
LOL, so if they went 700 that would mean Polaris is behind? Building a "cheater" sled (which is what the 650 is in terms of the existing 600 cc class) is hardly paradigm shifting, lol (despite it being a stellar performer, it's still a cheater sled in the eyes of many, just as the original 850 Doo was)

Manufactures did this dance years ago……500, 521 Doo, 530 Cat, 550 Cat, 570 Yamaha, settled in at 580, then to 600. 650 Poo then 700 Cat…..750 storm and vmax then 800.

Amazing to think they some years had 440’s 500’s 600’s 700’s 800’s and a 900.

Right you are, but the current class structure has been in place for some years now (not carved in stone, I know). Alas, the main thing was that a mfr choosing to adhere to this structure hardly makes them obsolete or outdated simply due to the fact that another chose not to. Kudos to Polaris for going to a 650, but that doesn't make Cat's decision to stick to a 600 (as Doo has done) necessary a bad one. I have been thinking for some time that we will eventually settle on 700s and 900s (before everything inevitably goes electric), time will tell
