2006 Outlander 400 H.O.:
Innovative ATV for Heart of Market

2006 Outlander 400 H.O. Highlights:

  • Innovative rec-ute with the most power in its class
  • New sophisticated styling
  • New steel racks with 10% more cargo capacity
  • New 35% brighter headlights
  • New digital info display

How do you stand out in a crowd? You do more, do it better and with more style. That’s how the Bombardier* ATV Outlander™ 400 H.O. stacks up to the competition in the industry’s most ferocious segment.

With its powerful Rotax™ 400 H.O. [High Output] engine and light weight, the Outlander 400 H.O. is the most powerful ATV in its class. Add in innovative Bombardier Recreational Products [BRP] chassis and suspension designs made for nimble handling and total control and you have an ATV that’s more than mere “appliance” – you have a machine that puts a smile on the face no matter if it’s used for work or play.

For 2006, The Outlander 400 H.O. is refined with a new steel racking system, restyled front fascia, brighter headlights and digital information display.

“The Outlander 400 H.O. is for enthusiasts that don’t want the same old ATV,” said Pierre Arsenault, BRP Vice President and General Manager Snowmobiles, Watercraft, ATV and Sport Boats. “Yes, they want more features, they want it to be easy to use, they want it to be dependable. But they also crave that adrenaline surge when powering out of a corner and handling that feels like an extension of the rider’s body. Only Outlander can deliver that.”

Powering the adrenaline surge is the Rotax® 4-TEC™ 400 H.O. four-stroke engine, which puts out the most horsepower and torque in the class, thanks to a full 400cc of displacement, four-valves, an efficient laydown configuration and Rotax ingenuity. It’s power is instant and linear, and is snappy even when the Outlander is loaded with gear. In terms of reliability, the 400 H.O. has also proven itself “bulletproof.”

Other Key Outlander 400 H.O. Features:

Trailing Torsional Independent [TTI] Rear Suspension – The trailing arm design, with single pivots positioned ahead of the wheels on a torsion bar, allows the wheels to travel straight up and down, delivering constant, straightforward travel and better overall handling. Plus, it can decrease tire wear by as much as 90% versus conventional designs.

Surrounding Spar Technology [SST] frame – The unique steel frame of the SST surrounds the engine, with less material, fewer welds and less weight than conventional ladder-type frames. Its narrow centre spar provides ski-like slide-and-glide action for getting over obstacles more easily.

Visco-Lok Auto-Locking Front Differential – Delivers true all-wheel drive by monitoring speed at all times and progressively adjusts torque without having to push any buttons. It delivers all the needed traction when it’s needed, without compromising steering and handling.

Continuously Variable Transmission [CVT] – Quick engagement “get-on-and-go” capability and instant performance. Engine braking is standard for improved control on descents.

Inboard disc brakes – Front and rear disc brakes are located at the differential, inboard along the chassis axis. So they are protected, plus, there’s less unsprung weight at the wheel. Bottom line – more effective, fade-resistant braking when you need it.

New! Steel Racks – New steel racking system increases capacity by 10% [100 pounds [46 kg] in the front, and 200 pounds [92 kg] in back] and adds lashing versatility.

New! Digital gauge cluster – In addition to indicator lights for many functions, a highly visible digital display shows critical information at a glance. The new gauge includes speedometer, gear position, 2x4 or 4x4 mode, trip meter, engine lights, and high/low beam indicator.

New! Front fascia – Restyled for a more sophisticated, yet aggressive look.

New! Clear lens headlamps – Sophisticated style and 35% brighter.

Subtransmission – Features high, low, neutral, reverse and park settings.

Transfer Case – Choose either two- or four-wheel drive to match performance to conditions.

Aluminum rims with 26-inch [66cm] Badlands tires

400 Watt magneto – standard to drive a host of accessories.

Service centre – Accesses key service components easily through the front storage compartment.
