2016 Alterra 500 XT



Plus taxes-fees.


  • 500 H1 4-Stroke Engine with EFI


The 500 is an industry favorite for a reason. The 443cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine delivers smooth, consistent acceleration. Electronic fuel injection enables a wide torque curve and effortless power delivery by constantly tuning the engine for any temperature, elevation and humidity changes.


  • Ride-In Suspension


Double A-arms optimize wheel motion translating into more responsive steering and better cornering. With 11 inches of ground clearance and 10 inches of suspension travel our Ride-In suspension will stare down anything you can put in front of it.


  • Digital Power Sport Gauge


The Power Sport gauge packs one heck of an informational punch. The digital gauge features all the essential operation information indicators: RPMs, speedometer, trip mileage, gear indicator, digital clock and fuel indicator.


  • Electronic Power Steering (EPS)Arctic Cat’s electronic power steering (EPS) activates automatically at the moment of ignition. Steering your machine requires minimal effort, even at slow speeds and rock crawling.
  • Duro 3 Star Kaden Tires with Aluminum Wheels


The Duro 3 Star Kaden is a great all-purpose tire. Smooth ride and grip for days. Combining them with aluminum wheels only made sense.


  • Dual Halogen with LED Accent Headlights


With the Alterra™, luxury comes standard from front to back. Literally. The front features an LED light bar that shines with pure style, day in and night out.


  • Dual Rear LED Taillights


Rear LED taillights are fast becoming a favorite feature on the trail. The bright LED lights let people behind you know exactly where you are.


  • Front & Rear Speedrack II


Constructed from high-grade rubberized, impact-resistant material on top of a layer of reinforced steel, you can pile heavy loads on it without it breaking down, even in freezing temperatures. It also features 14 SPEEDLock™ attachment points for easy-on, easy-off accessories.


  • 2/4 WD With Electric Front Differential Lock


Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. Tackle more rugged terrain by locking the front differential with a flick of the switch.


  • Large 1.44 Gallon Water-Resistant Rear Storage Compartment


A 1.44-gallon rear storage compartment is larger then you might think. Go ahead and see how much you can put in there. Plus, it’s water-resistant.


  • Rear 2-Inch Receiver


Hooking up to your boat trailer, utility trailer, SPEEDPoint™ attachments or whatever you need to haul doesn’t get much easier with this rugged, 2-inch rear receiver.
