2015 Performance Overview
Why do Arctic riders RIDE MORE™? Some say riding lets us be heroes of our own adventures. From the moment we fire up our engines and take to the trails, we become the thrill‑seekers we were born to be. With great power and great cornering ability comes great responsibility. You see, when we’re not hammering the throttle on the racetrack, we’re hammering it in the workshop. Figuring out ways to improve on 50 years of refinement - one breakthrough at a time. That’s how we move the speedometer forward. Always have.
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 129-in. track propels you down the trail.
6000 C-TEC2™ Engine
This clean technology 2-stroke is powerful, durable and 10 pounds lighter than the old 600. The electronic oil pump accurately meters fuel/oil ratios by RPM and by altitude, dramatically improving oil and fuel consumption. Dual-stage injection provides a clean burn with low emissions.
This chassis excels at bringing weight-saving technology to the performance-obsessed rider. The ProCross™ features a tapered two-piece tunnel design. Narrow at the top, wider at the bottom. A forged steering housing ties together many of the load-bearing chassis components.
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.
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.
Push-Button Engine Reverse
The push-button reverse is all about quick, easy activation. This feature reverses the direction of the engine rotation. In addition to being smooth it's also a weight savings.
ProCross™ Front Bumper
These lightweight aluminum bumpers add superior protection and a bold, stylish look. They are scratch resistant and have a powder-coat finish.
Sno Pro Brake Lever
The Sno Pro® brake lever is made from anodized aluminum and extends the whole width of the left handlebar grip, allowing you to reach the lever no matter what position your hand is in.
Snow spray being thrown up on your back on a wet day is sure to cut your day short. These tunnel flares keep the wet snow away and extend your day on the trail.
Just enough protection for the comfort you need when the going gets really fast.
This is the bag to have. Heat from the engine dries your goggles while you ride, so you always have a dry, warm pair of goggles waiting.
Rear Storage Bag
The mid-capacity rear storage bag holds anything from gloves to water bottles. Secure, easy-to-use quick-fasten straps and semi-rigid construction add plenty of needed strength.
1.25-in. Ripsaw™ Track
Features aggressive angled-lug profiles for outstanding forward and lateral traction on groomed trails. Its “chopped” lug design delivers excellent handling, acceleration and braking on hard-packed surfaces.
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.
