Deep in the confines of its Thief River Falls Engineering Department, Arctic Cat surely must be working on a Direct Injection 2-stroke program.
Would a clean 600 DI 2-stroke be the most cost efficient way for Cat to get through the 2012 barrier?
The company has been saying its Z-1 platform is a 600 class /120 horsepower contender and we won’t disagree. However, with the arrival of the Ski-Doo 600 E-TEC engine the 4-stroke sales freight train has slowed.
Buyers now know they can have 2-stroke lightness, amazing fuel economy and enjoy these virtues well past 2012.
