1000 H.O. Engine - Wildcat X

The 951cc, H2, liquid-cooled V-twin EFI engine is a torque monster. The race-tuned motor on X models ups your output to 90+ horsepower. The Wildcat power plant features a Pentroof Hemispherical Combustion Chamber. The design features 4 valves per cylinder, the key to creating more efficient combustion. There’s also a 2-into-1 tuned ceramic-coated exhaust and an air-intake system with 50mm throttle body.

13'' Ground Clearance

The limits of articulation are stretched even further with 13" of ground clearance. Rocks, logs, even downed trees are there for your climbing enjoyment.

18'' Rear Suspension Travel

Our theory is this: give ’em tons of suspension travel and they will find a way to use it. Industry-leading 18" of travel allows you to hit the sand dunes at your own dominating pace.

Maxxis Bighorn Tires

Maxxis® Bighorn tires with their wide footprint, excellent shock absorption and large shoulder lugs provide great traction on all types of terrain. In deep sand these tires make you feel right at home. Standard on X models. 

TEAM Rapid Response Clutch

The rugged TEAM® Rapid Response™ clutch gets high marks. It’s lightweight, tough and designed to create minimal friction. But without a doubt the best thing about it is how effortlessly it transfers power.
