Arctic Cat returns to the mountain 125-hp 2-stroke class for 2014 with a lightweight, high-performance M6000 Sno Pro featuring the powerful, new C-TEC2 599cc

engine with Dual-Stage Injection. Equipped with premium Sno Pro-package components, the all-new M6000 is aimed at boondocking excellence, with lightweight and easy handling for maximum fun-factor in all deep snow conditions.

The 6000-series C-TEC2 599cc engine debuts as the first 2-stroke snowmobile engine designed and built by Arctic Cat. Thanks to Dual-Stage Injection, batteryless EFI, APV electronic exhaust valves, exhaust pipe temperature sensor and electric oil injection, this high-tech, laydown-style engine delivers instant throttle response and low emissions. It also features the no-compromise convenience of push-button engine reverse.

Equally innovative, the ProClimb chassis complements the 6000-Series engine's light weight and instant power delivery. The combination of lightweight-yet-ultra-rigid construction and optimal rider ergonomics make the ProClimb chassis the ideal platform.

Up front, the 38-inch ski stance is matched by a vertical steering post and a 153-inch PowerClaw track for outstanding sidehill maneuverability and deep snow performance. Likewise, the ARS front suspension with Fox Float 3 shocks handles the full range of mountain conditions with control and comfort in equal measure. At the back, the M rear suspension is repositioned lower and rearward compared to previous years, delivering improved maneuverability and ability to stay on top of deep snow, with minimal trenching.

All mountain riders will appreciate the easy adjustability and versatility of the M6000's Telescoping Steering system, as well as the enhancements to its RMC hydraulic brake system. A new seat shape for 2014 results in a lower and shorter perch for improved ergonomics, while a built-in storage compartment and 11.5-gallon fuel capacity are even more rider-friendly.
