Did AC pass Polaris?
« on: December 28, 2009, 11:51:19 AM »
Browsing through the latest Snow Tech, and in two separate mini-articles they give sales ($) figures for Cat and Polaris for the '09 model year, Cat's was higher.  Did Cat sell more sleds, or just higher priced ones? Anyone wanna speculate?

I'm not sure, but the 800ho will sell a ton, heard it was already sold out for the season.  I bet with the rush possibly coming in 800 flavors and a switchback version, they will sell a good amount of sleds (PII) next year.  Doo will BNG it next year with maybe the intro of the summit 1200 and the etec 800r(maybe, it seems to be the unicorn of snowmobile engines).

I think trail riders may be realizing the benefits of the CAT lower CG and subsequent better cornering/stability.  I bet that better looking bodywork on the f would be a huge sales boost.

They are not as easily found out as BRP isn't public and Yam tends to bury their numbers along with all their other powersports financials.
