Trail Blaze with Advanced Features like iACT Adjustable On-the-Fly Suspension

Some riders want to tame the trail. But for those who want to dominate it, ZR Limited adds an easily adjustable suspension calibration to our legendary ZR.


  • FOX ZERO IQS SHOCKS: No matter your riding style — or what the day brings — FOX ZERO iQS shocks will be ready. Featuring three compression settings (Soft, Medium and Firm) that can be easily adjusted with a dial mounted on the remote reservoir, FOX ZERO iQS shocks are built for changing terrain. Their remote reservoir delivers fade-free runs, while coil-over springs even out the bumpiest rides. Available in 1.5 inch diameters.
  • 8000-SERIES C-TEC4 ENGINE: New for 2020, the next generation 8000-Series-C-Tec2 engine delivers a new level of clean Arctic Cat 2-stroke engine performance and technology. This new 794cc C-TEC2 twin features: New cylinders, pistons, combustion chamber, flywheel, and fuel rail. New fuel calibration strategy and Arctic Power Valve system with 3-stage control of the auxiliary exhaust ports via side valves. ECM-controlled electronic oil pump. Batteryless EFI. Exhaust Pop Temperature Sensor (EPTS). Knock Sensor. Engine Reverse Technology. This advanced new technology designed by Arctic Cat and built in St. Cloud, Minn delivers: Ultra-clean, more responsive performance. Enhanced power in the 165-hp class of engines. Precision oil injection. Exceedingly robust and lightweight design.
  • ARS II FRONT SUSPENSION: The next level of Arctic Race Suspension (ARS) is here. ARS II gives you better bite on corners and increased ground clearance to deliver more confidence on- or off-trail. We made the forged aluminum spindles 1.5 inches taller from the ski to the lower arm, and gave it more rigid upper A-Arms. Plus, a revised geometry delivers a new roll-center and adjustable cambers, and a swaybar makes for flatter, more predictable cornering on hard pack trails.
  • 137 IN. SLIDE-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION: Unlock the true potential of a coupled suspension with our unique SLIDE-ACTION design. The front arm fits into a U-shaped slot that allows 0.5 inches of sliding movement, so the front arm won’t collapse whenever the rear arm compresses. That unique design gives you the full benefit of coupling: controlled ski lift during acceleration and the complete use of the front arm at all times. SLIDE-ACTION suspension also allows a lower and more consistent track tension with its Torque-Sensing Link, plus three-position rear coupling block adjustability, adjustable spring preload and a durable 3-wheel rear axle assembly.
  • PUSH-BUTTON ELECTRIC START: Get the convenience and ease of electric start with a handlebar-mounted button.
  • GOGGLE HOLDER: Mounted right in the dash for quick access, this integrated goggle holder keeps a key piece of gear safe and sound.
  • LED HEADLIGHT: When the high beam is activated, the low beam also stays on to deliver an LED light pattern with great range and width.
  • 11" MID-HEIGHT WINDSHIELD: Added protection from the wind lets you enjoy more of the ride.
  • ADJUSTABLE 42"-43" SKI STANCE: Easily adjust your ski stance — From 42- to 43-inches wide.
