Testing a Prototype 2016 ZR6000R XC


6/1/2015 10:32:00 AM

Dateline: Feb. 24, 2015

Location: Near Island Park, Idaho

Rider: Arctic Cat engineer/racer Brian Dick

Machine: Prototype 2016 Arctic Cat ZR6000R XC race sled

Purpose: Evaluate suspension performance in hard packed, sharp edged bump conditions for possible calibration change for 2016.

Conclusion: "This is an improvement. But we need to progress to the point where we could ride this same section, at this same speed, with just the throttle hand on the handlebar and in complete control."

Action: Continue development.
