Arctic Cat 500
The Arctic Cat 500 ATV is a very formidable machine that has been a longstanding choice from the work and recreational rider alike. The affordable Arctic Cat 500 offers great styling, performance and low maintenance if you want a top-rated ATV that won’t empty your wallet.
Powering the Arctic Cat 500 is a Suzuki 499cc, 4 stroke, liquid cooled engine that maintains consistent performance in hot, cold or inclement weather. The wide fenders on the Arctic Cat 500 protect you from water and mud sprays and the “Cat-Eye” headlights and full floorboard are integrated into the body. You get a large storage compartment and a big and wide seat for comfort. The seat is easily removable which gives you access to the tool tray underneath.
When you need that extra traction, just flip a switch. The locking front differential is activated from the handlebar mounted lever so you can quickly engage and disengage the front wheels. This complements the electronic 2WD/4WD switch for making power delivery changes.
The Arctic Cat 500 has a standard slim SpeedRack on the front and back. The 6.5 gallon capacity of the fuel tank means you can ride all day without re-fueling and the tank is rear mounted.
You can choose between a Duramatic automatic transmission that feature engine braking or the auto clutch 5 speed manual transmission with a Hi/Low range.
The 500 offers 12 big inches of ground clearance, 10 inches of wheel travel and a 100 pound capacity on the front rack and 200 pounds on the rear. Standard is an automotive style receiver hitch and suspension brushings that are maintenance-free.
The digital instrument panel gives you 14 display indicators including speed, odometer, hour meter, clock, fuel level, dual trip meters, oil level and more.
The Arctic Cat 500 ATV is a big favorite among thrill seekers, hunters, fishermen, and at the jobsite as well. It is versatile, powerful and rugged and perhaps best of all, it is affordable.
