Read This: Arctic Cat Sno Pro 500 Named “Best Sled” by American Snowmobiler
M8 HCR Named “Best Mountain,” TZ1 Turbo LXR “Best Touring”
The season’s first snowmobile magazines are just hitting the mailboxes and already Arctic Cat has earned the highest praise by industry journalists for its 2010 model line.
In what is the first of many anticipated awards and first-place finishes, the all-new Sno Pro 500 was named “Best Sled of 2010” by the editors at American Snowmobiler magazine in its Buyers Guide issue. Likewise, the M8 HCR was named “Best Mountain” sled while the TZ1 Turbo LXR was honored with the “Best Touring” award.
“We infused all types of new features and technologies into our 2010 line of snowmobiles,” said Roger Skime, Vice President of Engineering at Arctic Cat. “We know there are many great snowmobiles in the market, but it’s especially gratifying to be recognized for being the best.”
One of Arctic Cat’s World’s-Fastest Snowmobiles, the all-new Sno Pro 500 combines the championship-winning Sno Pro chassis with a 85-hp, oil-injected 500cc 2-stroke engine featuring batteryless EFI.
The result is a snowmobile that impressed the American Snowmobiler editors with its over-achieving performance and low price. They wrote, “This thing’s so nimble, so light and feels so racy and rugged that, unless you’re on an open lake, you’ll outperform most of your buddies. Plus you’ll be smiling all the way to the bank watching them try to keep up with you on trails or through rough stuff.”
Similar praise was given to M8 HCR, with its pumped-up, 160hp, 800 H.O. 2-stroke engine, Fox Float shock-equipped rear suspension, new 5-lb. lighter seat and Telescoping Steering system. One of Arctic Cat’s Expert Grade Mountain Sleds, the editors had this to say about the HCR: “King of the Hill? You bet. The M sled, which in its new HCR version, is the highest performance sled a consumer can get for the mountains.”
About the ultimate-performance and comfort TZ1 Turbo LXR with the turbocharged Z1 4-stroke engine, the editors wrote, “This turbo two-up runs faster than most short tracks and is as luxurious as any tourer, heated seats and all.”
From its Body-Saving Ride Technology and World’s Fastest Snowmobiles, to its Expert-Grade Mountain Sleds and Industry-Leading Horsepower, the 2010 line of Arctic Cat snowmobiles offers award-winning fun for all snowmobilers.
