The 1000 H2 is a 951cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled 90° V-Twin with EFI. The H2 operates at consistently cool operating temperatures thanks to Arctic Cat’s liquid-cooled system featuring a high-capacity radiator and thermostatically controlled cooling fan. EFI is great for cold weather starts and consistent fuel delivery in higher elevations.

Ride-In Suspension

To achieve better cornering we lowered the center of gravity. That’s the thinking behind our Ride-In suspension. To accomplish this we lowered the profile and seat design without sacrificing ground clearance and suspension travel. Double A-arms prevent deflections during cornering, resulting in ultra-responsive steering.

Digital/Analog Gauge

The digital/analog gauge is extremely forthcoming when you want information. It features 14 critical operation indicators including clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, needle display, differential lock, high beam, battery condition, temperature and oil pressure.

The Maxxis® Bighorn 2.0 is the lightweight version of the legendary Bighorn. Coveted for its high-quality ride and great traction courtesy of its nondirectional tread, this tire, with its 6-ply rating, is ideal for heavy loads. Expect outstanding durability.

On-The-Fly 2WD/4WD w/Diff Lock

You’re in control. When the going gets aggressive, flip a switch and you’re in 4WD. For maximum traction, lock the front differential.

Rear 2-Inch Receiver

You’ll be using your ATV every chance you get. So we outfitted it with a stout 2-inch rear receiver, just like the one on your pickup. Gone are the days of multiple hitches. Hook up to your boat trailer, utility trailer, your SPEEDPoint™ attachments. And start racking up the accomplishments.

Front & Rear SpeedRacks

Our racks are steel, not plastic. They’re strong. They’re durable. What’s more, built-in entry points make it super easy to add attachments. Racks are rated for 100 lbs. carrying capacity on the front, and 200 lbs. on the rear.

Electronic Power Steering

Arctic Cat® gives you a true variable assist system by measuring not only vehicle speed but also steering torque at both the handlebar and the wheels. The electronic control unit measures input forces, resistance and speed, alerting the motor to deliver turning forces at predetermined levels.
