New 2.6... and I assume Atac will be available on the 154”, I’m sure it’s just a website screw up (crazy, right?).Damn no 154 ATAC no sale for me, Ill keep my 19s for another year for my primary mountain sleds. The 154 is actually where you want the lockout so it doesnt wheelie back on you. 165 is a tank in comparison and not a wheelie machine, which I like even in CO/WY. Honestly I was gonna get a 146 riot x this year for a low pow mountain/trail sled for fun factor when the snow sucks. But next years riot x with a 2.6 and mono rail looks sweet. I also want a mid size sled for around my cabin. Almost bought a 200 this year for that. Think about how sweet a Blast mid sized would be with a Garrett sized 25 series turbo. 100+ hp at 10k feet and what about 375lbs??? I want too much though so cant afford all that.
Still nice that Cat mixed it up. I didn't expect an all new mountain sled after looking at the early darked out pics cat posted. And i dont feel they need an 850+ cc motor. The alpha will destroy the same sled with a dual rail climbing in pow. So it will destroy doo and poo 850s getting traction and climbing in pow as well. Yes my axys with 3" powerclaw and turbo would kill it, but even though the 3" powerclaw was my favorite track ever, the alpha 3" came out and killed it combined with the mono rail for traction and climbing in pow.
I wonder how they did the riot x with a 2.6 and mono rail. Did they redesign the 2.6 like when the alpha came out, or is it the same 2.6 from old? Figure theyd beef up the track edges, but maybe not with a shorter skid/track length...
