2017 1000 XT EPS



  • 1000 H2 V-TWIN 4-STROKE ENGINE W/EFI: It loves to run in cold or hot weather. The 1000 H2 is a 951cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled 90° V-Twin with EFI. With features like a high-capacity radiator and thermostatically controlled cooling fan, you can count on EFI for cold weather starts and consistent fuel delivery in higher elevations.
  • RIDE-IN SUSPENSION: Double A-arms optimize wheel motion, translating into more responsive steering and better cornering. With 11 inches of ground clearance and 10 inches of suspension travel, our Ride-In suspension will stare down anything you put in front of it.
  • DIGITAL/ANALOG GAUGE: Knowledge is key. The digital/analog gauge provides critical operation indicators including clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, needle display, differential lock, high beam, battery condition, temperature and oil pressure.
  • ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING (EPS): Arctic Cat's electronic power steering (EPS) activates automatically at the moment of ignition. Steering your machine requires minimal effort, even at slow speeds and rock crawling.
  • MAXXIS BIGHORN 2.0 TIRES WITH ALUMINUM WHEELS: Excellent shock absorption, large shoulder lugs for added traction and a wide footprint make this tire a perfect match to all that power. Aluminum rims give it that finished look.
  • 2/4 WD WITH ELECTRIC FRONT DIFFERENTIAL LOCK: Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. Tackle more rugged terrain by locking the front differential with a flick of the switch.
  • REAR 2-INCH RECEIVER: Hooking up to your boat trailer, utility trailer, SPEEDPoint™ attachments or whatever you need to haul doesn't get much easier with this rugged, 2-inch rear receiver.
  • FRONT & REAR SPEEDRACKS: Rated for 100 lbs. carrying capacity on the front and 200 lbs on the back, these SpeedRacks are made from high-quality steel and have built-in entry points that make adding attachments a snap.
  • AUTOMOTIVE-STYLE PAINT: High-quality automotive-style paint looks as good as it holds up. Get it dirty and hose it off.
