Arctic Cat Introduces the 50-inch-wide, 60+ HP, Wildcat Trail.

Story and Video by: Arctic Cat

Behold the Wildcat Trail. At 50 inches across, this narrower Wildcat widens your riding horizons. Any competitors? NOPE. The RZR® tries and fails – in power and in suspension travel. Plus it’s nowhere near as fun to ride.

Powered by a brand-new engine, the Arctic Cat designed inline twin pounds out 60-plus horsepower, beating the RZR’s claimed power-to-weight ratio by more than 10 percent (watch them race). What’s more, thanks to something the RZR doesn’t have – premium FOX® nitrogen gas-charge shocks and sway bars front and rear – the tightest curves are straightened out with confidence.
