2015 Touring Overview
The experiences are epic. The memories are priceless. This year a new touring sled will begin racking up huge miles. The Pantera® 7000, also available as a Limited model, takes Body‑Saving Ride technology to the next level. Look for all the creature comforts like heated seats, hand warmers and plenty of storage for your gear. Looking for the perfect work, life, riding balance? Go touring.
No matter how you ride, where you ride or why you ride, there's a 2015 Arctic Cat® built for the way you ride. You've come to the right place to find out what makes Arctic Cat beat to a different drum.
Slide-Action Rear Suspension™
Slide-Action maintains a free-acting front arm while coupling under torque over bumps, and during aggressive cornering and acceleration. As the rear transfer blocks are engaged, the front arm follows the bumps, keeping your skis firmly planted as your 146-in. track propels you down the trail.
7000 C-TEC4™ Engine
Part of our clean technology family, the 7000 is a 1049cc 4-stroke, renowned for easily accessible midrange power. This quick-revving triple maintains optimal power thanks to EFI and a state-of-the-art engine management system designed to reduce engine braking.
The all-new ProTour™ chassis features a longer one-piece tunnel similar to the ProCross™ design. The signature Arctic Race Suspension™ (ARS), sporting tall spindles and widely spaced A-arms, creates sure-footed handling without compromising comfort.
The push-button reverse is all about quick, easy activation. Just hit the button and backward you go.
With a simple turn of the key, the new and improved electric start is reliable and effective. Not to mention the easiest way to ignite the fun.
Deluxe Digital Gauge
This dual LCD screen gauge has it all for the person who wants to know it all. There's an odometer, trip meter, speedometer, engine hour, low oil light, coolant overheat light, coolant temp, intake air temp, battery voltage, low fuel light, clock and reverse indicator.
Front Sport Bumper
These lightweight aluminum bumpers add superior protection and a bold, stylish look. They are scratch resistant and have a powder-coat finish.
Auxiliary 4.3 gal. Gas Tank
The Pantera® Limited features a 4.3-gal. auxiliary fuel tank. A separate fuel cap is located beneath the cowling just behind the passenger seat. The auxiliary tank is plumbed directly into the main 10.7-gal. fuel tank.
Detachable Locking Storage Cases
These easy-to-detach side cases give you the room you need to pack for the journey. Clean laundry in the left. Dirty in the right.
Heated Driver & Passenger Seats
Heated driver and passenger seats on our touring sleds keep the journey warm mile after beautiful mile.
Side Panel Wind Deflectors
This machine is ready for all the elements. Side panel deflectors push the cold air out and around you and your passenger, letting you sit back and enjoy your day on the trail.
Rear Storage Compartment
The Pantera® features incredible storage for anything you need ? water, snacks, gloves, you name it. It also features a belt holder that keeps your spare belt out of the way and secure.
Extra-High Windshield w/Mirrors
The high windshield is for when you're going forward into the great white open. The mirrors are for when you're backing up.
2-up Detachable Seat
Need more room for gear? The passenger seat on the Pantera removes easily with the flip of two levers.
Passenger Wind Deflectors
Cold hands could be the end of your day. These passenger wind deflectors will keep your passenger's hands nice and warm on those long trips.
Passenger Hand Warmers
Nothing keeps a pair of hands toasty like a pair of passenger hand warmers.
Driver & Passenger Heated Visor Plug-Ins
Got a heated helmet visor? We've incorporated outlets for both you and your passenger to plug in and fend off that annoying fogged-up-visor syndrome.
The small details make all the difference. A comfortable passenger is a happy passenger. The right foot position makes all the difference.
An Arctic Cat® is born. There's no question where its genes originated. It's time to learn more about the chassis, suspensions, drive systems and power plants that make an Arctic Cat look, sound and ride like only an Arctic Cat can.
