Arctic Cat released its 2015 ATV and ROV (side-by-side) line last night at its dealer show in Las Vegas.
There are 15 new models, most notably a new XR ATV line, new Prowler XT models and a new 60-in. Wildcat Sport.
Here is the quick download of all the new features on the XR 700 (all three packages), XR 550 (three packages) and XR 500 ATVs:
*All-new SpeedRack II composite rack system is constructed from extra- durable plastic with a rubberized anti-slip TPE surface mold, which provides a stronger and more stable payload platform.
*Front and rear SpeedRack II racks feature the new slide- and-lock SpeedLock and SpeedBuckle attachment system for integrated accessories, as well as convenient integrated spots for hook-type accessory attachment.
*New chassis design features a 52-in. wheelbase (compared to the previous 50-in. wheelbase) for improved ride quality, yet with an overall length that’s more than 1-in. shorter.
*The engine has been mounted further forward in the chassis, which results in 3 inches of additional foot space in the footwell.
*New full-LED headlight system features LED projector-beam headlights and LED accent lights for the strongest and most effective lighting output and bulb longevity. (Limited)
*New LED/Halogen headlight system features a combination of halogen headlights with LED accents for excellent lighting performance. (XT EPS)
*New dual, rear LED taillight system for powerful lighting performance.
*New reduced-effort steering features a steering post angle that has been moved rearward by 5 degrees for easier-to-turn cornering.
*New geometry on the double A-arm front and rear suspension provides more shock travel in relation to suspension travel, delivering an improved ride over all terrain. It also features an integrated rear swaybar for enhanced feel.
*Revised rider position places the feet approximately 2-in. closer together for improved comfort.
*The airbox has been relocated under the seat, making it more accessible, with a round motorcycle-style filter with a replaceable paper element that easier to service.
*New multi-function digital gauge now located on the dash, rather than the handlebars.
*The 333-cu.-in. (1.44 gallon) storage box has been moved to the rear of the machine, underneath the rear fenders, for simplified access.
*New engine sound reduction system featuring a rubber- isolated outer cover and new gaskets delivers an 8 dBA reduction in operation sound. (700 and 550 models)
*New closed-loop EFI system with catalyst exhaust provides 25 percent improved fuel economy and lower CO emissions for optimal performance in all conditions.
*Dual integrated front tow hooks offer more useful attachment options.
*New cast aluminum wheels (XT & Limited)
*Automotive-style painted?panels provide a luxurious finish. (XT & Limited)
