For the riding we do 100 hp is enough. I'm looking for good accessory integration (Pro-Fit cage is spectacular but Polaris dropped the ball on the fitment of some parts), 12"+ of suspension travel (who doesn't love a cushy ride), and good initial quality for the price-point (hellooooo...Polaris...anybody there?).*
Arctic Cat has never even been on my radar because they seemed to have limited dealer support in my area. I'm with Alaskan on this though, I'll definitely give it a good lookover when it hits the dealer floor.
*Hyundai cranks out Accents every day. They come with a 5 year 60k mile initial warranty, 7 year unlimited mile perforation and 10 year 100k limited powertrain warranty. Ten...freaking...years!!!
Not 6 months.
It comes stock with radio, heat, a/c, power windows, doors (4), front and rear windows, multi-speed wipers, 137 hp, roof, headliner, turn signals, mirrors, bumpers etc, etc, etc. Did I mention it's priced at $5,000 LESS
than a General Deluxe 2 seater that only comes with 3 of the above (1 bumper, roof and radio)? Maybe Dirt Every Day should buy one, drop $5k on a winch, suspension and tires and see how it stands up to a day on the trails.
