MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Arctic Cat today unveiled plans to produce a 50-inch-wide, trail-legal Wildcat side-by-side.

Shipments to dealers will begin sometime in the company’s fiscal 2014 fourth quarter.

Arctic Cat is currently in its 2013 fiscal fourth quarter.

The narrower stance of the Wildcat model will allow riders access to authorized ATV trails.

“The new 50-inch trail model builds upon the success of our pure-sport Wildcat,” said Claude Jordan, Arctic Cat’s chairman and CEO. “Our 50-inch model will feature everything enthusiasts love about the Wildcat, including the styling, and will lead the trail category with an unmatched suspension and ride-in comfort. Combine this with an all-new twin-cylinder engine, and consumers will have an unrivalled Wildcat riding experience.”

The 50-inch Wildcat trail model further expands Arctic Cat’s Wildcat line, which was named Dirt Trax Magazine’s “Best-In-Class Extreme Performance ROV.”

Arctic Cat offers the Wildcat in Base and Limited models, as well as the recently introduced four-seat Wildcat 4 and high-horsepower Wildcat X.
