2014 Arctic Cat 550 Key Features:
550 H1 4-Stroke Engine with EFI
Pulling, accelerating and climbing. That’s what our engines are good at. And this one is no exception. The potent 550 H1 engine is a 545cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled single sporting electronic fuel injection.
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.
The digital gauge features 14 critical operation information indicators: clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, needle display, differential lock, drive select, high beam, temperature and oil pressure.
Duro 3 Star Kaden Tires & Powder-Coated Steel Wheels
The Duro 3 Star Kaden tires boast a 3-ply rating. This is a smooth riding tire. The tread pattern provides excellent grip in all types of terrain.
On-The-Fly 2WD/4WD with 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.
A noteworthy feature on this model: Once in park there’s no need to engage the hand brake. But we recommend you do anyway, especially when parking on steeper grades.
