CANCUN - Arctic Cat dealers from the United States and Canada attending the manufacturer's business meeting in Mexico this week saw new 400cc and 650cc TRVs, four Limited Edition models, two concept vehicles, and a load of new parts, garments and accessories.
Arctic Cat's ATV line-up for 2007 includes the new 400cc and 650cc TRV PLUS, convertible with a two-up seat or a dump box; the 700 EFI; 650 H1; 650 H1 TBX; a 500 in automatic and five-speed; a 400 in automatic and five-speed; and the returning 250 2x4.
Also in the line-up are the DVX 250 and 400 sport quads; the 90 and DVX 90 youth machines; four Limited Edition models, the 700 LE, TRV Plus LE, 650 LE and 400 LE; and two Prowlers, a new standard model in addition to the returning XT.
The two concept vehicles shown included a Prowler loaded with accessories as well as a 700cc diesel-powered TRV developed with Roush Technologies, a UK-based company that is part of Roush Enterprises, Inc., Livonia, Mich.
Items not returning to Arctic's line-up for 2007 include the 500cc TRV and the Kawasaki 650cc V-2 engine.
“The main message is that the ATV industry in the U.S. is still good, but what is really good is that Arctic Cat is outperforming the industry again at retail,” Arctic Cat Chairman and CEO Chris Twomey told Powersports Business. “We've done it (out-performed the industry) every year we've been in the business. Last year we outperformed the industry in every category and this year we're up over last year.”
