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.
Bearcat 2000XT Rear Suspension: This articulating system allows the rear of the suspension to move up and down as you ride across rougher snow, making your machine more maneuverable and more versatile. Backing up in the unlocked position allows the rear of the frame to lever up, rather than dig into the snow. For more traction, just lock the skid and you’ll have a straight-rail suspension that takes full advantage of the track.
Electric Start: This is just the thing for consistent, reliable starting. A simple turn of the key is all you need to get up and running.
Push-Button Engine Reverse: With just a push of a button, you can reverse the direction of the engine smoothly, quickly and easily. What’s more, this technology also reduces the machine’s weight.
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.
Passenger Footrests: Passengers have feet, too. These footrests not only provide comfort, they also offer stability and support on bumpy terrain.
Passenger Hand Warmers: Cold hands? Not with these. They’ll keep your passenger’s hands toasty and warm.
Passenger Seat: When you’re riding solo and need room for gear, the passenger seat can be easily removed by flipping two levers.
20-in. Wide Track: For towing, touring, grooming or patrolling the ski slopes, the 20-in. wide track, with patented Quiet Track technology, gets the job done. The hardworking articulating rear suspension benefits from a long 154-in. track featuring 1.375-in. lugs and a 2.86-in. pitch.
Hand & Thumb Warmers: Say goodbye to cold hands. Our hand and thumb warmers provide plenty of warmth and comfort on long rides.
Heavy-Duty Front and Rear Bumpers: Got some hard riding or a tough job to do? These heavy-duty, steel-tube construction bumpers take a beating while protecting your sled.
16" High-Height Windshield: The extra-high windshield tames the wind out in the great white open.
