2015 Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport

Arctic Cat expands its high-performance ROV line for 2015 with the addition of three new Wildcat Sport models with 60-inch wide dimensions that slot in-between the original Wildcat and the recently-introduced Wildcat Trail models, offering customers the widest range of vehicle sizes, trim levels, shock packages and performance.

The Wildcat Sport’s chassis is 110.5 inches long and 60 inches wide, compared to the Wildcat Trail’s 110.5″ x 50″chassis and the original Wildcat’s 128″ x 64″ frame.

Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport EngineLike the Wildcat Trail, the Wildcat Sport has utilizes a 700 parallel-twin engine that features EFI, 4-valves per cylinder and liquid cooling.  Modern technology brings you more horsepower, less weight, improved efficiency and long-lasting durability. The all-new Arctic Cat designed 700 parallel-twin features EFI, 4-valves per cylinder and liquid cooling. This next generation 60-plus horsepower engine was designed specifically for the Wildcat Trail and Sport chassis and the engine feeds into the TEAM Rapid Response clutches and electronic selectable 2WD/4WD with front differential lock.

The Wildcat Trail and Wildcat Sport feature some of the industry’s lowest power-to-weight ratio and help give these vehicles great acceleration.

The Wildcat Trail frame features a 40-/60-percent front/rear weight distribution for optimal handling at any speed. The driver and passenger are located 3 inches lower than the competition so you are seated near the low center of gravity, leaving occupants less affected by the movements of the vehicle with greater confidence and control.

Wildcat Sport XT Features

The Sport XT forgoes power steering. The powerful 60+ horsepower, 700 motor is part of the compact drivetrain positioned to create an exceptionally low center of gravity. The Sport model harbors a well-calibrated suspension, housing nitrogen-charged JRi ECX-1 shocks coupled with rear sway bars. Automotive style paint and sporty rims are of the head turning kind.

JRi Shocks
Just like it’s bigger brother, the Sport XT and standard models get the new JRi 2.5” adjustable shock. Fluid loss is eliminated by moving the compression adjustment to the shaft. You’ll experience instantaneous reaction times leading to a balanced ride in most terrain conditions.
