Standard Features

  • 500 H1 4-Stroke Engine with EFI: The 500 is an industry favorite for a reason. The 443cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine delivers smooth, consistent acceleration. Electronic fuel injection enables a wide torque curve and effortless power delivery by constantly tuning the engine for any temperature, elevation and humidity changes.
  • 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.
  • Duro 3 Star Kaden Tires with Powder-Coated Steel Wheels: The Duro 3 Star Kaden is a great all-purpose tire. Smooth ride and grip for days. The powder coated steel wheels add that no nonsense 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.
  • Digital Gauge: The digital gauge features large critical operation information indicators: clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, differential lock, high beam, temperature and oil pressure.
  • Front and 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.
