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.

450 H1 4-Stroke Engine w/EFI

Smooth, consistent acceleration comes courtesy of this potent 443cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled single-cylinder. Its wide torque curve and smooth power delivery are a direct benefit of electronic fuel injection, which tunes the engine for any temperature, elevation and humidity.

Double A-arm Suspension

Fun is the name of this game. The double A-arm suspension helps you rip through corners and hunker down in the straightaways.

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.

Maxxis Tires & Cast Aluminum Wheels

Maxxis® tires are a lightweight, aggressive tire. Expect outstanding durability.

On-The-Fly 2WD/4WD

You're in control. When the going gets aggressive, flip a switch and you're in 4WD.

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.

Dual Taillights w/Backup Lights

See and be seen. It's always important to let others around you know where you are. Dual taillights with backup lights are there to give everyone else a heads-up of your intentions.

Automotive-Style Paint

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


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.
