According to Arctic Insider it spans the trail, crossover, and mountain 2 strokes. Sounds like they're splitting the 2 strokes off into the new chassis, will the 4 strokes follow later? Or ride on a modified version? I'm betting the latter

But what will the engines be? 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900 ?

And will there be a new racemachine showed at Haydays?

If you like the way the straight on look you get from Doo you like the front end on this sled. The Montana testing the racers did was good and they said it does ride better, but they blew the belly pans off the sled (again.... common issue with the ProCross chassis too) and some other plastics but they got another year to figure that out. The seat also looked very different which is good cause it needed an upgrade, especially for taller riders. Looks like it will be a good package

Probably going to stay with the procross till the end of time or they drop big-Y in 2024.

Is this the place where we all start listing all of the possible things this new platform is supposed to include, so we can come back after it's released and show how disappointed we are in it when it doesn't have everything?

Honestly, I'm thankful they finally got something out there that we can all start pointing to. I just hope that this is not just some marketing job to drum up publicity.

Somehow, it seems like introducing a 650 and 850 would be one of the easiest things they could do. But this alone will not be enough. They have got to at least come up to 2018 standards and include a factory GPS, at least as an option.

I've been reading about Doo's new Gen5 chassis, and from what I read, it's impressive. I especially like the added 4th engine mount to smooth out vibrations at the handlebars.

There has to be something in this new package that we can't get from the other manufacturers. Everybody has been talking about lightweight, mass centralization, and ergonomics for years. What will Cat come up with that we will be the new "must have" feature of a new chassis?

I'm thinking with the intro of the 9000 riot for 23 that the turbo may stay unchanged for a bit longer. Doesn't seem they'd bring out a RIOT with that motor for one season then change it.

"introducing a 680 and 880", there, fixed it for you..
And we saw the early engineering test mules for the GPS screen a long time ago, during the past winter, before the 23 release. Only two more months until we see it unveiled!

I’m by no means an expert in Arctic Cat. Have not owned one since 2008. That said, it sounds like downsizing to me. One chassis to cover all of those market segments?
They have had one basic chassis since the procross came out. The mountain chassis is slightly different from the trail sled. The Blast is the mountain sled with a cheap tunnel on it and the skid mounted higher in the tunnel to make it sit lower
