- 450 H1 4-Stroke Engine With EFI
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.
This mid-sized machine provides big performance with 10 inches of ground clearance and seven inches of suspension travel. Trail bumps are what this machine eats for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The digital gauge features large critical operation information indicators: clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, differential lock, high beam, temperature and oil pressure.
Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. Go from 2WD to 4WD with a flick of a switch.
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.
