I see arctic cat released info on the new wildcat 50'' wide model. I wonder if can-am will do the same???

It would have to be a "from the ground up" redesign, as they will never get to 50" with the V-twin between the seats. I sure hope they do come up with something...

hard to say, i would not expect to see it, or anytime soon, but who knows, im simply guessing. reason is most trails are now 60 + inches wide since that has been the fastest growing leg of sxs in last 4 years. many trails have been enlarged, many more planned, and almost all new trails are 60 plus inches. so the under 50 inches trails are becoming fewer and fewer. sure there will always be some, but its again about the masses in buisness. i may be wrong, guess we will see.

Michigan has been expanding the width of their trail systems throughout lower and upper peninsulas. These wider trails are designated as "Routes". The definition of a route - "These are 72 inches wide and open to all types of ORVs from motorcycles through full size vehicles".

So that is good news for folks buying the wider sxs's.:smile:

If they did come out with a 50" maverick i wouldn't buy one that thing would flip over with one touch of the throttle! I don't see how they could make it so that it was not hard to handle or keep the wheels on the ground with that Hp with cutting the width down by 14 inches.

Highly doubt they would put a 101 in a 50

Amen play doh. I'll make mine fit anywhere I wanna go. I have noticed the trails are a little tighter but so far nothing I can't get thru. Also the wildcat needed to have a smaller engine maybe this one won't puke oil everywhere or blow up!
