The Rugged Radios is proud to announce the new 100 Watt VHF radio, the RM100-V. This is a true 100 Watt radio, boosting transmit range to 40-50 miles. Not only does this radio pack some serious power, it’s the same size as the RM60-V which means it conveniently fits the same mounts as our RM60.

Long distance off-road adventures rely on clear communications, which is why Rugged Radios continues to develop the best in 2-way radios for offroad racing, recreation, and trail riding. Packed with a variety of features that will make your off-road trips much more enjoyable, the RM100-V comes pre-programmed with X channels, but can have up to 200 channels if needed. The front digital display is bright and colorful allowing you to view and operate the radio into the late night hours. This impressive display also can have 4 of your favorite channels readily available. With the press of a button you can quickly tune into any of these 4 channels without scrolling.

The RM100-V is offered as a standalone radio, a car-to-car package, and base camp kit to meet any long distance communication needs.

100-Watt Radio Delivers the Distance
ARROYO GRANDE, California (October 2, 2017) - More horsepower. Bigger engines. Faster speeds. For everyone who appreciates bigger and better, Rugged Radios is excited to announce the new RM100-V 100 Watt VHF Mobile Radio. This remarkable radio boasts a full 100 watts of power to reach distances up to 50 miles on your favorite VHF channels.
The new RM100-V is sure to rise to the top of the desert racing scene where communications are key over long distances. Not only does this radio pack some serious power, but it does so in a small compact unit that is significantly lighter and requires less amp draw than the old, big-box 100 watt radios of the past. It is easy to mount in any UTV, Desert Truck, or Buggy and being the same size as the 60-watt RM60-V leaves you just a few screws and a couple of wires away from upgrading to 40 more watts of power.
Packed with features that will make your off-road trips more enjoyable, the RM100-V comes pre-programmed with our favorite off-road channels and has the ability to hold up to 200 channels. The digital display will have your 4 favorite channels readily available at the press of a button and is bright enough to operate well into the night hours.
100 watts can be the difference between success and failure on a long-distance, off-road adventure. More power, more efficient and more affordable...this is the radio you need for your Chase Truck set-up before you head down to Mexico or take that adventurous trail ride into the deep unknown.

Textron Inc. acquired Arctic Cat in March 2017, adding another powerful brand to its portfolio that includes Bell Helicopter®, Cessna® and Beechcraft® aircraft, Greenlee® professional tools, Jacobsen® professional turf-care equipment, and Dixie Chopper® zero-turn mowers, among many others. Most Arctic Cat side-by-sides and ATVs, including the popular Alterra™, Prowler™ and Wildcat™ product lines, will now carry the Textron Off Road brand name, joining the Textron Off Road Stampede™ side-by-side to form a robust 2018 model year lineup.
“With Textron Off Road, we are marrying Arctic Cat’s legacy of high performance, reliability and innovation to Textron’s powerful combination of engineering expertise, manufacturing know-how, and Fortune 200 resources,” said Kevin Holleran, president and CEO of Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. “Together as Textron Off Road, we are creating a new leader in off-road vehicle performance.”
The Arctic Cat brand name will remain on all snowmobile product lines.
Side-by-side and ATV production will continue in Thief River Falls, Minn., with the manufacture of Stampede models relocating there from Augusta, Ga. Production of the Textron Motors engines that power the Stampede will move from Germany to the company’s St. Cloud, Minn. production facility, which already produces several four-stroke off road engines for ATVs and side-by-sides, and two-stroke engines for Arctic Cat snowmobiles.
Some Alterra and XC ATVs, and HDX and Prowler side-by-side models, will retain the Arctic Cat brand while inventory lasts.
To avoid product overlap, the Textron Off Road Recoil® and Ambush® side-by-side product lines, as well as the Onslaught™ ATV, will be discontinued.
