Been sorta out of touch the last few days, but was just reading that two (2) new side by sides have been announced recently.

First, a new RZR with a 570 cc single cylinder motor. Same basic size as the standard rzr, but a different clutch/transmission arrangement.

Second, Artic Cat has introduced their new Wildcat, a 951cc sport side by. It one ups the new RZR 900 announced earlier this year.

The side by side market is definately getting interesting.

And expensive. Did they happen to mention the MSRP on either? I see AC has not tendered a MSRP anywhere on the Web. At least I could not find it. And it can only be pre-ordered as of now. With other top-of-the-line UTVs going for $16,000+ ($10,000 more than I paid for the Rincon), I would hate to see the price on the Wildcat. I will not be buying one anytime soon, I am sure. Of course, I will not be buying anything soon. I own Hondas. LOL. :mrgreen:

Even a Honda will wear out, eventually. The Wildcat is predicted to list for $15,999, the same as the new RZR 900. The little RZR will be $9,999. Some rumors has the Wildcat coming in October, no word yet on the little RZR.

If you'd blow all the dust and remove the cobwebs from the coin purse, I'm sure you'd have more than enough for one each. I'll come help you break them in. :crazy:

Looking like "eventually" will be a very long time. I will be dead and buried by then I am sure. :lol:

$16,000 is way too much for a toy. Any toy. More than I paid for my truck, in fact.

The coin purse is a bit light these days, not much happening in my business. No one is willing to invest much money into their businesses with the Obama health fiasco being held over their heads, not to mention the triple whammy of potentially higher taxes, the floundering economy, and changing regulations of all types. Uncertainty is bigger job killer than high taxes. One of my printing customers announced last week that, due to stricter EPA emissions regulations, they are permanently shutting down one of their big presses and laying off the 12 people who run it. It would cost them $500,000 to comply with the new regs, which is more than what the machine generates in income per year. Couple that with the fact that the press is getting old and requiring more $ to keep it in production every year, it is not worth the investments. So it will become scrap metal. Which the Chinese will buy and turn into new Chevy parts.

Industrial controls field service and repair. A large part of the business is installation of new equipment and machines, which no one is buying these days. Have had two new installations all year, usually would have done 10-12 by now. So the troubleshooting and repair sector is all I am doing currently. Enough to pay the bills, but not to get ahead of the rising costs of living in this Obamaized Socialist country. He said he lowered the taxes on the middle class, but my tax burden has risen, since I am self-employed, and am a business of one. He is the most business unfriendly President since Carter.

My worst years ever in the net income category have been since he took office. He blames Bush, I blame him.

Best of luck. He should last only one term, as long as the other side comes up with somebody half decent.

I'm sure glad I don't have to worry about the job market any more.
