Arctic Cat

All-New 425 4x4 Has Big Features And Competitive Price





Arctic Cat introduces another market leader to one of the best selling segments of the ATV industry with the all-new425 4x4. At $5999, the 425will go head-to-head with what used to be “The World’s Best Selling Automatic 4x4” and beat it on features versus price.

The newly styled 425 bodywork is an obvious upgrade that calls attention to the sculpted fenders, headlights and grille – still narrow enough to maneuver through the tight woods, while protecting you from mud and water spray. Integrated full length plastic floorboards enhance sure-footed traction. The seat is low for increased comfort and rider control, while the handlebars aid in steering precision and comfortable ergonomics.

Designed for easy starting along with a smooth, consistent power delivery, the 450 H1 engine has a potent 443cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder with a wide torque curve via Electronic Fuel Injection that tunes the engine for any temperature, elevation and humidity no matter what the riding condition.

The ultra-tough chassis is feather weight with A-arm fully independent rear suspension (FIS) and double A-arm front, with preload adjustable shocks and 7 inches of suspension travel. Ground clearance is 10 inches which coupled with 25-in. front and rear Kenda tires on 12-in. rims give riders the confidence to tackle any terrain.

Standard equipment includes an enlarged front rack to compliment the new bodywork and the rear Speed Rack offers dozens of accessory attachment options. A 2-in. “automotive style” receiver hitch, digital instrument pod and Start-In-Gear capability complete the package.
