Standard Features

  • 450 H1 4-Stroke Engine with EFI: 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.
  • 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.
  • On-the-Fly 2WD/4WD: Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. Go from 2WD to 4WD with a flick of a 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.
  • Kenda Pathfinder Tires with Powder-Coated Steel Wheels: Directional and widely spaced lugs provide a smooth ride and the grip you want when spending the day on the trails.
  • Front and Rear Impact-Resistant Racks: Strong and durable. These impact-resistant racks are rated for 75 lbs. carrying capacity on the front and 150 lbs. on the rear.
