Standard Features

  • 1000 H2 V-Twin High Output 4-Stroke Engine with EFI: A 951cc, H2, liquid-cooled V-Twin EFI engine provides the efficiency advantages of 4 valves per cylinder with its Pentroof Hemispherical Combustion Chamber. Oxygen enters the machine through a 50mm throttle body, and leaves through a 2-into-1 tuned ceramic coated exhaust with a new pipe and closed loop EFI system, improving your fuel efficiency.
  • JRI ECX-1 Suspension with 5-link Trailing Arms: Five linked rods work as one to keep the tire’s contact patch flat throughout all 18? of travel by reducing camber and axel plunge. 13? of ground clearance keeps you above almost any terrain below. The JRi ECX-1 shocks provide the adjustability you want for cornering through the trails or crawling over rocks.
  • Digital / Analog Gauge: Knowledge is key. The digital/analog gauge provides critical operation indicators, including clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset 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.
  • Infinitely Adjustable Tilt Steering: The Wildcat’s infinitely adjustable tilt steering allows you to position the steering wheel in that “just right” position for any rider.
  • Duro Powergrip Tires with Aluminum Wheels: New for the Wildcat™ this year, the Duro Power Grip tire provides excellent shock absorption while the innovative sidewall design adds to the production from punctures. Aluminum wheels are still standard on this beast.
  • 300 lb Box Capacity with Tie Down Hooks: We know sometimes you overpack for a day of fun. The rear cargo box carries up to 300 lbs. of whatever you need and has tie-down hooks to make sure it’s properly secured.
  • Race-Inspired Highback Bucket Seats: Aggressive feel, but comfortable. That’s what these high-back bucket seats are all about.
  • Dual LED Headlights and Tailihgts: Not only do they look cool, but the LED headlights and taillights are ideal for operation in hot or cold temperatures.
  • Automotive-Style Paint: High-quality automotive-style paint looks as good as it holds up. Get it dirty and hose it off.
