2017 Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport SE

2017 Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport SE

Arctic Cat has updated its midsize Sport UTV lineup with the introduction of the 2017 Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport and Trail Special Edition models.

Each model comes equipped with a host of goodies to set them apart from their base model brothers, including 3,000-pound WARN winch with synthetic rope, polycarbonate half windshield, aluminum wheels, and premium shock packages. Arctic Cat says the Wildcat Sport SE is the only UTV in the industry that features KING single-speed adjustable aluminum gas shocks.

A recent trademark application by Honda is the latest clue that a new Honda UTV is on the horizon. Honda applied for the “Talon” trademark on July 15 – specifically for a “Side-by-Side vehicles and their structural parts.” You can see the Honda Talon trademark application here.

Polaris RANGER is the industry’s No.1-selling utility vehicle (UTV) lineup, offering the hardest working and smoothest riding family of vehicles for hunting, farming, trails and mud. The Model Year 2017 lineup continues to offer more innovation with new features and models across every price point and consumer application.

The Polaris GENERAL set a new standard in off-road comfort and refinement – built to work hard and play harder – when it was introduced this past November. With class-leading features needed to tackle the trails and a work ethic to handle tough jobs, the Polaris GENERAL has become one of the hottest side-by-side offerings on the market.

We thought you’d be interested in this modified Volkswagen Passat.

An inventive Finn turned his Passat into an impressive snow-capable machine. In the video, available after the jump, we see the Passat tearing through the snow like it was nothing.

We suspect this wouldn’t be allowed on your local trails, but it might not be a bad idea to take it to work after a particularly bad winter storm. Just don’t take any corners too sharply…this thing looks a little top heavy.

We found a video recently of snowmobilers scaling a steep reservoir wall and it left the lot of us absolutely stunned.

The video features two snowmobilers in Iceland playing around in a reservoir. The first thing we wondered was how they were going to get out. The walls are high and steep and there doesn’t appear to be a logical exit.

The first shows us the easy way out. The second took a much more difficult approach. We can’t do it justice with mere words, so check out the video below the jump to see for yourselves.

When I see an ATV repair video produced by “Marty’s Motorized Mayhem” you can bet I’m going to watch it.

Unfortunately, Marty has a hole or two in the exhaust can on his Honda four wheeler. This can certainly ruin a day of riding, but Marty wasn’t having any of that. First, he wrapped what looks like tinfoil around the holes for a quick fix so his ride wasn’t spoiled. Later, he offers a more permanent solution with a piece of tin and some wire.

It’s far from pretty and we’re not sure how long it will hold up, but if you don’t have a lot of extra cash lying around for a new exhaust, Marty’s solution could get the job done. Backyard mechanics rule! Check out the video after the jump.

It’s not exactly an ATV, but if you’re looking for an off-road vehicle that can get over just about anything than take a look at the Hexawheel concept.

Designed by Iranian mechanical engineer, Siyamak Rouhi Dehkordi, the three-seat Hexawheel is intended for use on the gnarliest terrain. Setting the Hexawheel apart is the flexible frame, which is united with a six-wheel layout and powered by an all-wheel drive system.

Take a look below the jump for more photos of this very cool concept vehicle.

We love backyard mechanics and their creations. Recently we found some photos of a very cool snowmobile project built by a retiree from the Russian city of Korov.

The machine is powered by an old Yamaha engine and the rest is made up of scrap. The fiberglass seat comes from an old carousel and the gear shift lever appears to some sort of Coca-Cola collectible.

What really sets this machine apart is that it uses a big wheel instead of a track. Check out more photos after the jump.
