Sport UTVs that take wildly different approaches
Like all of you, we’re all waiting to hear more details on the hot new Arctic Cat Wildcat XX. Sneaking in under the radar, though, is the new Wildcat X Limited, that has all-new suspension designed by Robbie Gordon that should make it an awesome off-road monster. And in the other corner, let’s take a look at the new Yamaha YXZ1000R SS SE. A machine that is already turning heads with manual shifting, the YXZ gets sport paddle shifters.
There are some basic similarities between these two powerhouses, both being 1,000-class Aport UTVs that don’t have turbo chargers. And there is a connection between Arctic Cat and Yamaha, being that they develop their performance snowmobiles jointly, and the new XX is running a Yamaha powerplant. But that’s about it. Where they go from there is in wildly different directions.
