2013 Team Arctic Racers Pilot Fine-Tuned Sno Pro 600


Huge Gains Made in Durability, Precision Cornering and Unmatched Suspension Control


Thief River Falls, Mn (10/29/12) – Arctic Cat is constantly at the forefront of race development and has a winning history that’s as long as the company is old. As a result of their relentless testing and focus on building the most well-rounded race sled, a fine-tuned 2013 Sno Pro 600 will stick it to every competitor where it counts; with improvements to durability, precision cornering and unmatched suspension control.

Listed below are the winning key features of the 2013 Sno Pro 600 in the ProCross chassis. In addition, please read the list of updates that our racers have been raving about while testing in the off-season:

• 600R race engine with Heated 40mm Mikuni rack style TM carburetors w/TPS
• Front Arctic Race Suspension (ARS) – with Fox Float X Evol Shox
• Race Slide Action rear suspension equipped with Fox Racing Shox
• 1.7-in. Snocross track or 1.25-in. Cobra 2-ply Cross Country track
• Arctic Drive System (ADS) with magnesium chaincase and Torque Overload Sensing (TOS) bottom sprocket
• Torque Control Link (TCL) - Links the drive to the driven clutch
• Radial Master Cylinder brake system
• 5-gallon Snocross or 13-gallon Cross Country fuel tank

Question

Will Arctic Cat release a mid year (2012-2013) production of this 600 or wait until 2014?

I think they MSRP them at 11,999. No the general public cant get one unless one ends up at a dealer someplace.
