2012 early unveiling

Just found this on AC's website as I am looking to go down today and buy a new cat.
ARCTIC CAT - Prowler XTZ 1000i
Don't want to miss any big ride trying to figure out this motor issue I am having.

Only thing I can see is they added a i to the end of the displacement.
Wonder why?

Oh yeah and new paint jobs.
Also the hdx has the new cage.

Last yrs prowler owners will be happy to know they didnt change anything (that I can tell) other than paint. I like that dark green on the HDX. Riddler Im curious if your getting the 1000. Seems like that HDX would be more worthy for the terrian up here in Alaska. Have you been debating between the two or you need that power. Also if there hardly no change between years are going to get this years or last.. save some $. Whicha thinking.-

I think the 1000 XTZi has more testosterone than the 700. That could be why he chooses it over the HDX.

Yeah I like the hdx really contemplated buying it.
Held off thinking if I did then they would release a 2012 1000cc HDX.
My inlaws just bought the 2011 hdx and it is sweet. I would love to build a cage for the kids in the back of that it is huge.
I am too much of a power junkie, no I do not need the extra power as the old 650 motor did all that I asked of it last year.

But I love me some power!

Gonna go get a 2011 xtz today.
Then have the old mutt machine to plow and play.

I am promising I will not get all carried away with the 2011. It is gonna be the family machine. My wife is tired of me always tweeking and tuning right up till we leave.

Heck I did not even go to sleep the night before our Memorial weekend ride.
I was building a airbox and intake tubing among other things.
She was pissed. As I always used to work all night before the mud drags then load up and go. This will be a machine always ready to go and for the family.

The other will be for me and the boy to rally, hunt and plow snow. Oh yeah and it dont matter how loud it is for him and me.

I like your line of thinking. Looking back at the mess I got into with my garage queen I wish I had another one that was always ready to go. Good luck with the new xtz.
