Features

Features

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • PUSH-BUTTON ELECTRIC START: Get the convenience and ease of electric start with a handlebar-mounted button.
  • GOGGLE HOLDER: Mounted right in the dash for quick access, this integrated goggle holder keeps a key piece of gear safe and sound.
  • RETRO DECAL: 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.
  • LED HEADLIGHT: When the high beam is activated, the low beam also stays on to deliver an LED light pattern with great range and width.
  • 60TH ANNIVERSARY DECAL: Celebrate 60 years of Arctic Cat with this commemorative decal.
