Wildcat Trail vs. RZR 800

The 50-inch trail legal market segment has been dominated by the Polaris RZR 800 and Arctic Cat is aiming for a chunk of the market with the new Wildcat  Trail. Both vehicles come it at 50 inches wide and under 1000 lbs. Let’s  look at how some of the other features stack up:

As you can see, the specs line up pretty close. The Wildcat Trail’s longer  wheelbase, 1 inch more wheel travel and premium FOX nitrogen charged shocks will  give it an advantage, but the numbers are really close.  I do really like doors  instead of nets.

The biggest difference comes in the Wildcat Trail’s new engine. The new  Arctic Cat designed 700 parallel-twin features EFI puts down over 60 horsepower  which translates to the industry’s lowest power-to-weight ratio. The power is  delivered through a new Team Industries clutch that hooks up well. And the  packaging of the engine and clutch is very compact.
