2011 Arctic Cat XC450 I Crossover Motor

The all-new2011 XC450i 4x4 is a new entrant into a category Arctic Cat likes to call – Crossover. This growing segment is for consumers who demand the capabilities of 4WD, but also want a sport-inspired ATV without the premium price.

Powered by the smooth, consistency of the potent 443cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, the XC has the ultimate mid-range performance via Electronic Fuel Injection that tunes the engine for any temperature, elevation and humidity no matter what the riding condition.

Dominating the trails is effortless via the ultra-tough, featherweight chassis featuring A-arm fully independent rear suspension (FIS) and double A-arm front, with 5-way preload adjustable shocks and 7 inches of suspension travel. A rear-mounted swaybar keeps the rear of the XC450i planted during aggressive cornering while ground clearance is an industry leading 10 inches so any performance trail rider can tackle gnarly terrain with confidence.

An electronic 2WD/4WD switch on the right hand control makes going in/out of 4WD an easy process while the sport inspired painted bodywork provides ample mud protection and is available in metallic black.

Standard equipment includes attractive, 12-in. cast aluminum wheels, 2-in. “automotive style” receiver hitch with a 1,050-lb. towing capacity, digital instrument pod and Start-In-Gear capability.
