The Arctic Cat stand was a buzz for all three days attracting visitors to the stand to learn more about this 50 year strong American brand. With almost the complete range of ATVs and Side by Side’s on display visitors were able to size up ATVs from 300cc up through the range to the popular 1000cc XT.
“The brand and product range continues to draw good feedback from the visitors” commented Arctic Cat Australia’s Shane Ladynski. “We have a solid line up of models offering a variation of specification throughout the range. The entry level 300 has been a huge success at its price and the mid range 550XT with power steering, electronic 2WD/4WD shift, front dif lock and class leading 10″ suspension is an all round winner.
We also sold a 1000cc XT off the stand after a brief test ride the new owner was blown away by the V-twin grunt and overall specification of the US built workhorse.” Added Ladynski.
Arctic Cat’s new local dealer, Toowoomba Bikes and Bits, was on site for the duration of the event and was impressed by the quality of visitors. “It’s great to be able to represent and offer a new product, having something new and different is very exciting and I suspect the new Arctic Cat’s are going to be a huge success” commented Toowoomba Bikes and Bits dealer principal Ian Watts. “Complimenting the line up of over 14 ATVs is a very impressive range of Side by Side vehicles.
Ranging from 550cc to the powerful V-Twin 1000cc XTZ the Arctic Cat Prowler Utilities are catching the eye of the purchasers. Our Prowler 700 HDX is the Side by Side everyone wants with its huge 473kg tilt tray payload and 680kg towing capacity coupled with a 3 seater bench seat, fuel injection, and high/low range 4WD and dif lock it really is the business for serious farm work.”
Walking past the Arctic Cat stand it was clear which vehicle was on the top of the wish-list, not entirely practical for hauling hay or carting fertilizer but the 1000cc Wildcat X sure looks like a lot of fun. The Wildcat X is Arctic Cat’s premium recreational side by side vehicle, featuring a thumping V-twin, 18 inches of travel across independent Fox shocks and race spec clutch, there isn’t more fun to be had on 4 wheels.
