If Textron’s takeover of Arctic Cat wasn’t news enough, the industrial, military and commercial vehicle giant is going into 2018 on a terror with the release of the Havoc X. Based on the Stampede platform, the Havoc X is more sport oriented and looks to be aimed right at the Polaris General. We have put these two machines side by side so, you can see for yourself if any of the specifications meet the needs for your next recreational UTV.
