Riders looking to make a leap in backcountry performance will find their sweet spot with the 2020 M 6000 centered around the Alpha One single beam rear suspension system. And it’s available at select dealerships now!
What? A 2020 in dealerships? Yes, that’s right. I’m not buzzin’ on an eggnog hangover folks – A limited number of 2020 M 6000 sleds are available at select dealerships now.
This model wasn’t available during the 2020 Snowmageddon launch, and is not in the current Model Year 2021 lineup available for pre-order. This special offering is outside of the Snowmageddon sales event, so with the snow falling, I’d suggest heading to your dealer soon.
Here’s the lowdown on the 2020 M 6000 Alpha One:
Alpha One consists of a lightweight and rigid single-beam rear suspension constructed from extruded aluminum and magnesium. It runs in the middle of a specially designed lightweight Power Claw track featuring a single row of track windows, a deep snow-specific design with 3-in. paddles and a 3.5-in. pitch, plus unique internal-track construction.
The 154-in. length bends and conforms to the snow, whether the sled is on a side hill, flat surface or going straight up in powder. With maximum side flex, riders can maneuver the Alpha One to a degree not possible with conventional snowmobiles, carving circles well inside the kind of tight turns conventional snowmobiles are incapable of. The suspension is light and stiff, allowing the track to flex and conform to the snow and riding surface.
M 6000 Alpha One delivers lightweight mountain performance and maneuverability with narrow-profile bodywork in the Ascender platform. The lightweight Arctic Mountain Suspension (AMS) with mountain-specific spindles, geometry and a 35.5-in. to 37.5-in. stance for better side hilling, reduce drag in the snow and optimal handling.
The M 6000 Alpha features Arctic Cat’s IFP 1.5 ski and track shocks, dual halogen headlight, a vertical steering post, 1-in. mountain-height windshield, 11.7-gal. fuel tank and a front mounted heat exchanger for reduced ice buildup and includes skid frame-mounted ice scratchers.
The high-tech, Arctic Cat 6000-Series 600 C-TEC2 2-stroke engine delivers class-leading horsepower and fuel economy thanks to dual stage injection (DSI), battery-less EFI, Electronic APV Exhaust Valves, Exhaust Pipe Temperature Sensor, electric oil injection and convenient push-button electric start and engine reverse. Revised engine mapping for 2020 increases overall performance. That performance stays consistent with the quick acceleration and auto-adjusting design of the TEAM Rapid Response II drive clutch, Rapid Reaction driven clutch and the entire Arctic Drive System.
The M 6000 Alpha One is available in Charcoal/Green
