I didn't realize that Subaru owned Polaris. According to Wiki, Fuji (the owner of subaru) used to make engines for polaris but no longer due. Polaris has some relationships with KTM but from what I read they are there own corporation. But in terms of corporate sales, Polaris is by far the smallest. Quick wiki search found that honda, kawasaki and suzuki measure their profits in the tens of billions and total sales in the trillions. Arctic Cat by belonging to textron has joined this club. The future will be interesting as Polaris continues to drive the industry in atv and snowmobile in terms of unit sales and marketing. It does seem that their drive for unit volume has come at the expense of quality. But time will tell. Many consumers seem to overlook the cost of ownership short term vs. long term.

No issue for me yet other than possible name changeÖ All about what changes the new owners may make but who knows yet. Time will tell IMHO. So name change seems to be coming quick but who knows on the rest.


FYI in daily life LOTS of my life is touched my foreign owners
- Tim Hortons is majority owned by Brazialian Company called 3G and I didnít care when I picked up my morning coffee
- Land Rover is owned by Indian Company Tata Motors and when the start button was pushed this morning it fired right up and drove just fine.
- I bought gas the wifes pickup this morning at Esso and its owned by American company Exon Mobile
- Tonight I will drink a Labatt Blue or two at the cottage and itís owned INterbrew which is Dutch.


Air Canada.....well this is still Canadian owned as no one else in the world is stupid enough to try and touch her. (haha)



So sad that not much in Canada is owned by Canadians or even produced in Canada anymore.

Arctic Cat was foreign owned by an American Company and made in USA. Today it is still owned by foreign American company and still made in USA. Really no real change from this arm chair I sit in.

Have a great weekend all!! its a long weekend on this end.
