It looks AWESOME! Problem is it's way to wide at 64 inches. It's wider than the Prowler which makes it useless on the trails. Your not going to pass through any gates with that thing. It's built for the dunes out west. My only hope is that they are going to have other versions of this that are not as wide.

That is pretty cool looking. More on the sport end like a razr than the teryx. I'd be nervous too about fitting through trails; the rex is tight as it is.

Yeah, 64 inches won't pass through the bollards at state trails nor SSRT. That machine wouldn't be too useful around here.

There are rumors of a narrower version and a Jan 2012 release date. I think this one was only a concept because it was rolled out onto the floor. I will be pumped to have an all CAT garage again!

I wonder how accurate those specs are, especially the width? You Cat guys remember how huge they said the Thundercat was going to be. Everybody was worried that it wouldn't fit on the state trails. I've had quite a few people comment on mine that they thought it would be much bigger. I don't think they'd try to market something that would be useless right out of the box. I bet the actual machine will be about the same size as the RZR or no bigger than the Teryx or Prowler at most :grin:

It looks like the new big bore SXSs are set up more for the dunes. The trailing arm suspension for the new AC SXS also suggests this.


The can-am commander and Popo RXR S are too wide for PA State trails, well the ones with bollards anyways. The teryx is listed at 58.3" wide and you need to be less than 58" for state trails, so you would have to do the get skinny mod.

So really the RZR and the rhino are the only ones allowed on state trails.
