2000 Engine: The value-focused 565cc, 2-stroke, fan-cooled carbureted engine is powerful, durable and efficient. Push-button engine reverse is a favorite in the utility segment. This engine is revered around the world for its simplicity and dependability.
ACT Diamond Direct Drive with Arctic Cat Clutches: The ride-proven ACT™ Diamond Direct Drive™ planetary gearcase produces efficient transfer of power from engine to track, delivering a smooth ride. The Arctic Cat® clutch system engages at lower RPMs without sacrificing top speed.
AWS VII Front Suspension with Hydraulic Twin Tube Shocks: Arctic Cat’s legendary AWS™ VII front suspension utilizes strong, durable A-arms, providing great handling and cornering. Hydraulic twin tube shocks smooth out the chatter, mile after mile, for an even more comfortable ride.
SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension with Arctic Cat Hydraulic Twin Tube Shocks: The SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension™ brings race-day technology to everyday riding. Our U-shaped slot fits over a fixed shaft to allow a crucial half-inch of sliding movement. As the rear transfer blocks are engaged, the free-acting front arm follows the terrain, keeping your skis firmly planted over bumps, and during aggressive cornering and acceleration. This significant detail controls ski lift during acceleration. Arctic Cat® hydraulic twin tube shocks smooth out the chatter, mile after mile, for an even more comfortable ride.
Digital Analog Gauge: Choose between digital and analog speed and tachometer readouts. There’s also an odometer, two trip meters, engine hour meter, reverse indicator and warning lights.
