    Just saw on the Country Cat site the 2018 Textron Havoc! Looks like the General is going to have some competition! The AC Prowler XTZ is a great machine, good HP to Weight ration and all, but really nothing new in the design except the appearance. Textron has shown that is about to change! They used the AC green, but little else! The engine is a 110 hp, inline 2 cylinder . This is all new to Cat! I've yet to see any pricing, but look forward to that shortly. The new Wildcat is schedule to have the 3 cylinder Yamaha motor! Hopefully we can see more shortly!

    My only fear is that the gov't will start stepping in when serious accidents start mounting up from all that serious HP. Just remember back to the old three wheeler days, when accidents started to climb the ole gov't restrictions kicked in.... When these machines get going as fast as automobiles on offroad trails then we will have more tearing up of the trails and more injuries and along will come gov't regs. I hate to see progress pushed back but after my number or years on this planet I can already see what will happen and it won't be good.

    Nice looking machine. 100+ horsepower works for me!

    Here is a pic I found online:

    I can't help but remember what they did to Polaris, sorta reminded me of Harley and AMF.

    Take a Bad Boy Stampede and add some longer A arms for a wider track and some big tires and some flares and some nice bucket seats and paint it AC green and raise the power on the Weber engine and and change the name to Textron Havoc and that is what you get. Not a Cat. But it is interesting and I will be checking it out when my dealer gets one.

    I notice they are offering $7700 off of AC's.

    I bought one of the last Polaris Textron sleds, and it was actually pretty good but Textron just kept making the same old style machines. heavy snowfall in 77-79 lead to over production in 1980 and didn't snow much for the next 10years, Textron was close to folding the brand when a group of their own managers bought them out, and the rest they say is history.

    Great to hear! Keep us posted on any mods and adventures you have with it! I'm sure many more people would love to hear about the Stampede and any of the other Cat machines!
