2019 Arctic Cat M 8000 Hardcore 153, 2019 Arctic Cat® M 8000 Hardcore 162
Features may include:
AWARD-WINNING ASCENDER PLATFORM WITH LIGHTWEIGHT ASCENDER BODYWORK
The 1.125-inch dropped driveshaft features an increased track-to-tunnel clearance of 3 inches allowing us to use 8-tooth drive sprockets on this model, giving you a flatter approach angle with more floatability and maneuverability. In addition, you’ll also notice a huge difference in your sled handling. This update delivers a more efficient power transfer to the snow, letting you enjoy more horsepower when climbing, carving, side hilling and boondocking.
THE HARDCORE FEATURING FOX® SHOCKS
FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 shocks feature three compression settings that correspond to soft, medium and firm shock calibration. A dial mounted on the remote reservoir can easily and quickly be turned to customize the compression calibration for riding conditions and intensity. They utilize a remote reservoir for fade-free performance, while coil-over springs offer a plush ride in stutter bumps. They’re standard on the skis and rear suspension of 2019 M 8000 Hardcore models.
8000 C-TEC2 ENGINE WITH DSI
The 8000 — efficient, responsive and fresh out of St. Cloud, Minnesota. This 2-stroke engine features noticeably faster throttle response and acceleration compared with our previous 8000, plus up to 30% reduction in oil consumption below 7000 rpm, 36% increase in low-end torque and 18% increase in midrange torque. Delivering a rare combination of increased power, reduced emissions and ultra-low oil consumption, the overall crispness sets new standards for performance and rideability in the 160-HP class.
ARCTIC MOUNTAIN DRIVE SYSTEM
The Arctic Drive System features CVT drive and driven clutches for a combination of smooth shifting, optimal performance, maximum durability; great serviceability; and reduced weight. The new drive clutch features a roller bearing on the shaft that enables an auto-adjusting belt tension design and delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5 percent lower effective starting ratio (while maintaining the top ratio) for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed, with more evenly distributed force for lower belt pressure. It’s a design that’s unique to Arctic Cat.
DELUXE DIGITAL GAUGE
This dual configurable LCD screen gauge allows to you check all the vital information about your snowmobile and more. 14 different readings to be exact. There’s an odometer, speedometer, max RPM, 2 trip meters, engine hours, low oil light, coolant temperature, exhaust temperature, intake air temperature, battery voltage, fuel level, clock, reverse indicator, hand warmer and thumb warmer.
