Arctic Cat 500


When a thaw to West Virginia in winter, it mountains of sloppy, soupy, mud. So when I stepped out my door to a balmy 40 degrees January to test a lineup of the

sportsmen-aimed ATVs, I knew I was in for that would separate the vehicles from the tenacious.

and ready for action were the 500cc-class automatic 4×4 from Honda, Arctic Cat and and a semi-auto 500cc-class 4×4 from Bombardier. (Also here is a surprise entry Kawasaki, which we tested in at its first showing.) So, after through snowdrifts and icy streams and up slippery slopes backward and we’re ready to give you the on the newest ATVs.

You’ll also see that included

a list of the smartest new ATV In case you’re wondering, of these also was tested the same trying conditions as the in fact, during some trail running the Fin Grip Pro my bow in place even when I was thrown.

Arctic Cat 500

Last year Cat introduced its first big-bore with an automatic transmission. For the Arctic Cat 500 is available in a Hunter’s

Edition, which includes a from Warn, a gun scabbard, camo covers and a rear-mounted cargo bag. Driving rig into the West Virginia felt more like the of a serious hunting excursion a test (this rig would fit right in on the set of Road Warrior).

The run wasn’t long under however, when we realized although this ATV looks it has

a soft touch. The Arctic smooth suspension system maneuvered over logs and Its 11-foot turning diameter be average for a 4×4 of this but its steering is surprisingly light, when it’s in four-wheel-

drive. The 493cc engine and transmission deliver good (especially on the low end) and the vehicle’s braking, which is critical to descents down steep is excellent in 4WD mode.

We found the lights, starter button/kill reverse override and choke are located on the left handlebar. The lever is the smoothest we’ve yanked and the shift pattern is in

fact, we’d go so far as to say that

the high-mounted position is ergonomically

One of the features we didn’t care for was the of the 4WD/2WD lever. Its placement low and of the gas tank is a bit awkward. Another was the protruding transmission case which crowds the foot and provides scant foot when the gun scabbard is installed. while the camo covers are a permanent camo treatment is appropriate.
