Arctic Cat Inc. unveiled the 2017 Wildcat™ X and Wildcat™ 4X models that feature an all-new RG™ PRO rear suspension. Commented Christopher Metz, Arctic Cat’s president and chief executive officer: “We are making rapid progress developing new product innovations and are pleased to begin delivering ROV models designed in partnership with Robby Gordon. This is the second of our three planned new ROV/ATV product waves to be introduced this fiscal year.”
Headlining the latest 2017 models are three new Wildcat side-by-sides: the two-occupant Wildcat X EPS and Wildcat X Limited EPS, plus the four-occupant Wildcat 4X EPS. All three models feature an entirely new RG PRO rear suspension package that Arctic Cat designed with racing legend Robby Gordon. The RG PRO rear suspension is the same tested and proven design used by Robby Gordon in Stadium Side-X-Side races. The RG PRO suspension is aimed at professional-level riders who demand the ultimate big bump off-road performance.
These innovative Wildcat X models also feature new race-inspired ROPS cages; KING aluminum gas shocks; custom cast-aluminum KMC wheels; and a host of chassis improvements for professional-level handling and performance. As a result, Arctic Cat is delivering the most capable off-road machines available, with custom features that exceed industry standards.
RG PRO REAR SUSPENSION
RG PRO rear suspension features a “wishbone” style, trailing arm design for true tracking throughout the 16.5 inches of travel, delivering professional level performance and stability.
KING ADJUSTABLE DUAL-RATE SHOCKS
King aluminum gas shocks provide compression adjustability and precise rebound damping with fade-free, race-proven performance.
ITP ULTRACROSS TIRES
27-inch ITP ULTRACROSS tires provide 6-ply radial construction, a tightly spaced and overlapping tread pattern that lowers rolling resistance and enhances ride comfort, and a durable rubber compound that delivers longer wear and enhanced resistance to cuts. Their super deep Rim Guard feature provides outstanding wheel lip protection.
DUAL LED HEADLIGHTS & TAILLIGHTS
Vibrant LED headlights, brake lights and taillights provide outstanding illumination and visibility in low-light and nighttime conditions. The headlights feature High/Low beam.
RACE-INSPIRED HIGHBACK BUCKET SEATS
High-back bucket seats provide an aggressive feel as you take your machine through the paces and comfortable enough to keep you in the saddle all day long.
FULL ALUMINUM DOORS
These large aluminum doors allow easy entry and exit from the vehicle. They also provide added protection from the occasional debris from entering the cab.
RACE-INSPIRED ROPS CAGE
An all-new ROPS cage on the Wildcat X models takes its Baja race-inspired design straight from the race machines used by Robby Gordon. It’s made from robust tubing, with additional front support braces aimed at delivering maximum rigidity and strength for driver who demand race-level performance.
1000 H2 ENGINE
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 though 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. Each H2 engine is assembled at Arctic Cat’s state-of-the-art St. Cloud, Minnesota, facility.
