LIGHTWEIGHT BUT POWERFUL

6000-SERIES C-TEC2 ENGINE

This robust, yet lightweight 125-hp class engine offers all the power needed for podium-level performance while keeping the sled feeling weightless. With an engine like this, it's no wonder the R-XC stands out as one of the best racing sleds available.

6000-SERIES C-TEC2™ ENGINE

The 6000-Series 599cc C-TEC2 Engine with Dual-Stage Injection (DSI) is the first clean technology Arctic Cat 2-stroke engine and the leader in 125-hp class performance, featuring:

  • ECM-controlled electronic oil pump
  • Batteryless EFI
  • Exhaust Pop Temperature Sensor (EPTS)
  • Knock Sensor
  • Engine Reverse Technology
  • An exceedingly robust, lightweight design

BUILT FOR SPEED

PROCROSS CHASSIS

The race-proven ProCross chassis offers all the speed and agility pro racers need to win. When you hit the trails on an R-XC, you'll be faster and more in-control of your ride than ever before.

NO ROUGH RIDES

129" R-XC REAR SUSPENSION

This 129-inch rear suspension is built specifically for the R-XC to offer the smoothest ride imaginable. By simultaneously engaging the front arm and compressing the rear arm, bumps in the path are imperceptible.

ADAPT CVT

SMOOTH POWER DELIVERY

ADAPT CVT SYSTEM

With its lightweight, narrow design that increases performance and belt life, as well as the market's only self-adjusting clutch, the ADAPT CVT system provides better throttle response and smoother power delivery.

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. 

UNRIVALED SUPPORT

FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3R SKI SHOCKS

These lightweight ski shocks are designed to move comfortably and adjust easily, offering you a plush ride with enhanced control. They easily neutralize any bumps in the trail, bringing out a snowmobile experience like no other.

EXTRA WIND PROTECTION

11.5" 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.

SHOWSTOPPING STYLE

SIGNATURE TEAM ARCTIC GRAPHICS

This snowmobile is as stylish as it is powerful. With signature Team Arctic graphics, black bodywork and medium green graphics that are Factory issue, this stunning vehicle will catch everyone's eye.

QUICK AND CONVENIENT

PUSH-BUTTON ELECTRIC START

The R-XC is available with push-button electric start. With just the push of a handlebar-mounted button, you'll be on your way. Also available with manual start for a lighter ride.

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.
