The hcs guys were talking last spring about how things weren't rosy between cat and Yamaha. I guess it make sense. Will be interesting to see what the plastics look like and the packaging.


Polaris has had their own set of chassis problems these days. People have figured it out but I'm going wait till about 2029 before I pick one up. I will go where the 998 goes.
HCS. That’s a reliable source.

There has been a few plausible rumors on hcs that have been confirmed here

-things not rosy with ac/Textron and who runs the ship
-possible collaboration with Polaris
-ac brininging out a t-cat as in a turbo cat and dropping the 998
-textron possibly making a new four stroke via Weber.

Yamaha supplies engines to the sled and sxs for ac. It would be interesting to see them cut ties but I wonder what happens to the blast/venom and the zr200/snow scoot. Those thing sell like mad.

Also rumours BRP will have Cat build their 850 and under sleds. So really who really knows until it happens.

I wouldn’t doubt anything right now, maybe come Haydays things will be more certain.

Well it would not be a bad thing seeing yamaha in 3 of 4 sleds.yamaha just launched a handfull of patents for an electric sled!!Its just crazy there is ZERO info about there new 998 turbo engine on there corporate website in japan,its almost like they want nothing to do with it!!I am a stock holder for them and they never post financials on there sled divisions even know they still build onsite.Someone ask jaret about that!?
