Arctic Cat unveils the updated ZR 6000 R SX (snowcross) and the all new ZR 6000 R XC (cross country) sleds at the annual Haydays Grass Drags & Swap Meet.

The ZR 6000R XC cross country racer now uses the ProCross chassis and C-TEC2 600 DSI engine instead of the custom race chasis. It is hoped that this will attract more race participants on Cat, maybe those who never considered racing before.

The ZR 6000 R XC is available to purchase through your local Arctic Cat dealer.

Standard Features
Handwarmer, thumbwarmer, check engine temp light, tether switch, V-Force reeds, adjustable timing-select module, sway bar included, ACT Hot start system, C&A PRO XT Snocross skis or C&A PRO ADX cross country skis.

Optional Features
VIP Data Acquisition System
