Features

Capabilities

  • LEGENDARY POWER - 9000-SERIES C-TEC4 TURBOCHARGED ENGINE: With a Thundercat, there's no settling for second best. You need the biggest, most powerful engine on the trail: the 9000-Series C-TEC4™ turbocharged powerhouse. With this much power, no other snowmobile will even come close. 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.
  • INTUITIVE HANDLING - ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING: Now with Electronic Power Steering (EPS), this is a next-level experience. Unmatched control, easier turns, and intuitive handling will upgrade your ride more than you could imagine.
  • SMOOTH POWER DELIVERY - ADAPT CVT SYSTEM: With its lightweight, narrow design that increases performance and belt life, as well as the industry's only self-adjusting clutch, the ADAPT™ CVT system provides better throttle response, smoother power delivery, and a ride like no other.
  • ADAPTS TO TERRAIN - FOX® ZERO IQS SHOCKS: Designed for any terrain and any riding style, these premium FOX® ZERO IQS shocks are easily adjusted to fit your needs. With shocks like these, you'll never go back. Available on select models. 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.
  • NO ROUGH RIDES - 137" SLIDE-ACTION™ REAR SUSPENSION: Rough rides are a thing of the past. With this industry-exclusive design that keeps the front arm engaged while the rear arm compresses, you'll hardly feel a bump in the trail. 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.
  • CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING CONTROL - ARS™ II FRONT SUSPENSION: This innovative front suspension is built to optimize handling. With increased cornering bite, it's easier than ever to tame the trails. More control means less fatigue, so you'll be able to go farther on the Thundercat. 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.
  • EXTRA WIND PROTECTION - 11" MID-HEIGHT WINDSCREEN: Don't let the cold wind slow you down. This mid-height windscreen provides additional protection from harsh winds, letting you get more out of every ride.
  • QUICK AND CONVENIENT - PUSH-BUTTON ELECTRIC START: The convenience of electric start is just one of the countless things that sets the Thundercat apart. With just the push of a handlebar-mounted button, you'll be on your way.
  • EASY ACCESS - GOGGLE HOLDER: Never lose your goggles again. The integrated goggle holder mounted directly in the dash keeps a critical piece of gear safe and easily accessible.
  • ADJUSTS TO TRAIL CONDITIONS - ADJUSTABLE 42"-43" SKI STANCE: With an adjustable 42-43 inch ski stance, you'll be able to customize your ride even further. Easily set your ski stance based on trail conditions and immediately feel the difference.
  • ENHANCED ACCELERATION - 1.25" RIPSAW II™ TRACK: The Ripsaw's angled lugs helps the Thundercat grip the trail. The chopped design provides unbelievable levels of handling and acceleration.
  • BRIGHTEN ANY RIDE - LED HEADLIGHT: A premium LED headlight is crucial for those night rides. Equipped with both high and low-beams, the headlight casts an LED light pattern with great range and width.
  • INSTANT SUSPENSION CONTROL - ATAC ON-THE-FLY SUSPENSION: No more getting off your snowmobile to adjust your suspension settings. Easily switch between soft, medium, and firm suspension settings with the push of a handlebar-mounted button and watch the system immediately adjust your suspension. Available on select models.
