9000-SERIES C-TEC4 TURBORCHARGED ENGINE
ZR Thundercat doesn't mess around, with our biggest, most powerful engine. The 9000-series C-TEC4 turbocharged three-cylinder engine delivers max horsepower in any conditions.
The ultimate 4-stroke powerhouse, it produces 200HP-class performance at 8750 RPM. This 998cc engine features ultra-quick throttle and turbo response from an intercooled turbo, plus a DOHC design that’s matched with 4-hole fuel injectors to create maximum performance with minimal weight.
You also get engine braking control via an idle speed circuit and engine mapping, lightweight aluminum cylinders, and a press forged crankshaft.
Equipped to deliver easier turns and more control for a ride like you’ve never experienced.
ADAPT CVT SYSTEM
Lightweight narrow design that increases performance and belt life. The all-new Arctic Cat ADAPT CVT system provides improved throttle response and smooth power delivery.
FOX ZERO IQS SHOCKS
No matter your riding style — or what the day brings — FOX ZERO iQS shocks will be ready.
Featuring three compression settings (soft, medium and firm) that can be easily adjusted with a dial mounted on the remote reservoir or with a push of a handlebar-mounted button (on models with ATAC), FOX ZERO iQS shocks are built for changing terrain. Their remote reservoir delivers fade-free runs, while coil-over springs even out the bumpiest rides. Available in 1.5- or 2.0-inch diameters.
137" SLIDE-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION
Unlock the true potential of a coupled suspension with our unique SLIDE-ACTION design. The front arm fits into a U-shaped slot that allows 0.5 inches of sliding movement, so the front arm won’t collapse whenever the rear arm compresses. That unique design gives you the full benefit of coupling: controlled ski lift during acceleration and the complete use of the front arm at all times. SLIDE-ACTION suspension also allows a lower and more consistent track tension with its Torque-Sensing Link, plus three-position rear coupling block adjustability, adjustable spring preload and a durable 3-wheel rear axle assembly.
ARS II FRONT SUSPENSION
The next level of Arctic Race Suspension (ARS) is here. ARS II gives you better bite on corners and increased ground clearance to deliver more confidence on- or off-trail. We made the forged aluminum spindles 1.5 inches taller from the ski to the lower arm, and gave it more rigid upper A-Arms. Plus, a revised geometry delivers a new roll-center and adjustable cambers, and a swaybar makes for flatter, more predictable cornering on hard pack trails.
11" MID-HEIGHT WINDSCREEN
Added protection from the wind lets you enjoy more of the ride.
PUSH-BUTTON ELECTRIC START
Get the convenience and ease of electric start with a handlebar-mounted button.
Mounted right in the dash for quick access, this integrated goggle holder keeps a key piece of gear safe and sound.
The 2022 Thundercat 9000 features a graphics package that displays our rich heritage of arctic cat icons.
ADJUSTABLE 42"-43" SKI STANCE
Easily adjust your ski stance — From 42- to 43-inches wide.
1.25" RIPSAW II™ TRACK
Ripsaw’s angled lugs grip the trail, while the chopped design provides unmatched handling and acceleration.
When the high beam is activated, the low beam also stays on to deliver an LED light pattern with great range and width.
ATAC™ ADJUSTABLE ON-THE-FLY SUSPENSION
Switch between soft, medium and firm suspension at the push of a button, with handlebar-mounted controls that automatically and immediately adjust your suspension FOX ZERO iQS gas shocks. Available on select models.
