Arctic Cat Sold!

With Arctic Cat being sold I bet replacement parts for our older rigs will get even harder to find.

Hope this means lots of fresh/new money to our brand, and that they will invest in more spare parts for our old Prowlers!

Sounds like they are keeping the brand, but they already have the Bad Boy UTV, I get the feeling they want Cat for the sleds and sport side by sides. Just a personal opinion.

Next concern is what happens to the dealers, Bass Pro is about all we have around here and they carry Bad Boy so that shouldn't change.

Hope it turns out better than the Harley/Davidson to AME did! Talk about piss poor products! I'm not worried about spare parts, my garage is full of AC Stuff!

I think us square tubers are doomed no matter what. I HOPE you round tubers don't pay the price for this. I hope I'm wrong, but it's never good when a company basically buys a competitor. They may combine the 2 SXS's into something fantastic, but with Polaris and Can Am dominating the market, it might be an uphill battle. Be fun to watch this channel for awhile!

Yep square tubers have been doomed for a while, when I needed a new header pipe I found out AC quit making them, got lucky and found a good used one. I would expect more of our stock parts that aren't used on the newer models to get hard to find.
