Just look out there. Nature is calling you to come out and play. And to bring some of your favourite toys with you. In particular, toys with winch, huge ground clearance and great displacement. Aguility is a beautiful thing. I gets you through the small path in the forest and brings you to your perfect spot.  

The 450 is another Arctic Cat that sets the bar extremely high. In fact it’s the only machine in its class to offer a low- and high-range transmission with dynamic engine braking. Take note of the 450 with its powerful 443, single overhead cam, 4-valve engine. If you want a great all-arounder at a great price, this is it.

Transmission Automatic Duramatic

Our Duramatic™ automatic transmission is as bulletproof as they come. It’s made of a centrifugal clutch with primary and driven belt clutches. As RPMs rise, the centrifugal clutch engages, allowing the primary clutch to be engaged with the belt at all times, reducing belt wear and extending belt life.

Traction ATV

When you need to go places, over places and through places – traction is paramount. And Arctic Cat ATVs give you plenty of it. Articulation keeps all four wheels in constant contact with the ground. Even over rocks, logs and other big stuff you may encounter. Four wheels on the ground means better traction and an overall better ride. Hit the on-the-fly 2WD/4WD switch when you need to get out of nasty places. When you’re in even nastier places, push the switch up again and that engages the front differential lock
