What do you think of the look of the new f-series cats? Personally i think they are ugly and wont be buying one until they change the look. How long do you think they will keep that styling? I bet it wont last 2 years!!!!

I dont like them, then again I didnt like the look of the rev when it first came out.... funny how things grow on you. The headlight area looks kinda funny, it looks like a really bulky sled in the pictures I have seen.

I agree with ArcticInc. The sleds look a lot different in real life also. I looked at a "Ugly" phazer in the magazine and boy when I tried a new one out in person it was a completely different feeling and I loved it. They make them look differn't in the the screens not in real life. I mean I'm sure they all are "nice" its just we have been changing so rapidly but thats just my opinion. The new F series will all look great in a while. But the Crossfires look graet right now in my opionion.

I couln't look at the green/black one at the dealer a few weeks ago as I was kinda hungover and was almost throwing up everytime I did. But I do like the red/black and silver/black ones. The color plays a huge role in how a sled looks IMHO. I don't like the yellow Doo's, but the ones that have real colors look nice.

Ive seen them all in all colors in person alot sat on them and studied them for long periods at my dealer! Maybe its just me but they look huge bulky and i cant stand the head lights they look like they cost about 2 dollars to make compared with last years firecats. Not sure how they ride as i have not had a chance to ride one yet. But i will soon! Must say the fit and finish is nicer. and like that they put knee/shin pads on the gas tank. Saves your legs alot of abuse!

I love them, now..... When I first saw them in a magazine I thought they where ugly but now, as said earlier I love them. The adjustable handlebars are wicked, and the rider positioning/stance is awesome IMO. ;)

I don't think they'll last that long to tell you the truth, because too many people want to spend they're hard earned cash on something that atleast looks good and wont give them a chance. Why do sleds these days look so bulky? the new f cats have like no windsheild and are rediculacely tall. All I can say is they look way better in person but there is no way I'd fork out 10 large on one.

I think they look better in person as well as the Phazer but I will take functionality over looks any time.

I think they look pretty darn good. They have a muscular look to them. Havent ridden one yet but they feel comfortable and the adjustability will make most people happy no matter how big/small they are. And for the record they arent Firecats. They are F-Series sleds.

What does the F stand for then?? I thought it was short for firecat just like the F5, F6, F7.

I'm not crazy about the nose on the new F series, but I would still buy one (in a couple years) if they ride as nice as it feels just sitting on them. From what I hear, they do.
