2014 Recreation ATV Overview

If you want to know the one thing that makes Arctic Cat ATVs great, it’s everything — everything working together in perfect harmony. From the riding position to engine power to ground clearance and suspension travel, Arctic Cat riders around the world covet their wheelers for the freedom and abilities their wheelers give them.



Ride Tech



You’re here to see what these machines are made of. We can tell you that you’ll find a lot of good strong components and proven technology. The rest is in the details.

550 H1 4-Stroke Engine w/EFI

Pulling, accelerating and climbing. That’s what our engines are good at. And this one is no exception. The potent 550 H1 engine is a 545cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled single sporting electronic fuel injection.

Ride-In Suspension

To achieve better cornering we lowered the center of gravity. That’s the thinking behind our Ride-In suspension. To accomplish this we lowered the profile and seat design without sacrificing ground clearance and suspension travel. Double A-arms prevent deflections during cornering, resulting in ultra-responsive steering.

Digital Gauge

The digital gauge features 14 critical operation information indicators: clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, needle display, differential lock, drive select, high beam, battery condition, temperature and oil pressure.

Duro 3 Star Kaden Tires & Aluminum Wheels

The Duro 3 Star Kaden tires boast a 3-ply rating. This is a smooth riding tire. The tread pattern provides excellent grip in all types of terrain.

On-The-Fly 2WD/4WD
w/Diff Lock

You're in control. When the going gets aggressive, flip a switch and you're in 4WD. For maximum traction, lock the front differential.

Rear 2-Inch Receiver

You’ll be using your ATV every chance you get. So we outfitted it with a stout 2-inch rear receiver, just like the one on your pickup. Gone are the days of multiple hitches. Hook up to your boat trailer, utility trailer, your SPEEDPoint™ attachments. And start racking up the accomplishments.

Front & Rear SpeedRacks

Our racks are steel, not plastic. They’re strong. They’re durable. What’s more, built-in entry points make it super easy to add attachments. Racks are rated for 100 lbs. carrying capacity on the front, and 200 lbs. on the rear.

Electronic Power Steering

Arctic Cat® gives you a true variable assist system by measuring not only vehicle speed but also steering torque at both the handlebar and the wheels. The electronic control unit measures input forces, resistance and speed, alerting the motor to deliver turning forces at predetermined levels.

Automotive-Style Paint

High quality automotive-style paint looks as good as it holds up.


A noteworthy feature on this model: Once in park there’s no need to engage the hand brake. But we recommend you do anyway, especially when parking on steeper grades.


There's a lot to know about Arctic Cat® wheelers. Most importantly, we want you to know that there's one for you. We're here to help you find it.
