2018 ARCTIC CAT ZR 6000R XC
Arctic Cat is set to defend its cross-country championship titles with a new 2018 ZR 6000R XC snowmobile that features key improvements for the upcoming season.
The newest consumer-available machine builds on wins in the 2017 USXC I-500 and Iron Dog events with FOX ZERO QS3R shocks, a new lightweight tubular driven shaft system, race-bred seat design, the auto-adjusting TEAM Rapid Response II drive and TS-273 driven clutch combination, as well as improvements in engine calibration mapping.
It starts with the lightweight, ultra-tough Pro-Cross chassis that delivers championship-winning rigidity and ergonomics.
It's matched by the combination of the ARS front suspension and the 129- SLIDE- ACTION rear suspension (with 7-position rear coupling adjustability) effortlessly carves corners and swallows bumps. A new four-wheel rear axle design increases track support in high-load racing conditions.
New coil-over FOX ZERO QS3R shocks on the skis and rear suspension provide premium performance in all terrain conditions via their simpli ed adjustability and Kashima coating.
The high-tech, Arctic Cat produced 6000-series 600 C-TEC2 2-stroke engine delivers class-leading horsepower and fuel economy thanks to Dual-Stage Injection (DSI), batteryless EFI, APV electronic exhaust valves, exhaust pipe temperature sensor and electric oil injection.
Revised engine mapping for 2018 increases performance. It also features the no-compromise convenience of push-button engine reverse.
Racers will appreciate the reshaped seat, which features a cut-down shape up front to maximize cornering ef ciency and rider ergonomics. Likewise, race-ready features like tether switch and hand guards come standard.
It's matched by Next Gen bodywork with improved air ow for better under- hood heat management, plus easy-to-remove side panels and hood quick and simple access to key components.
The 15 x 129 x 1.25-in. Ripsaw track features clips on each track window for maximum performance in all snow conditions, and comes ready for traction products with the removal of the Quiet Track bumps.
Its RMC hydraulic brake system features a race- bred master cylinder and lightweight disc for enhanced braking performance.
