2019 Arctic Cat NORSEMAN X 8000
8000 C-TEC2 ENGINE WITH DSI
The 8000 — efficient, responsive and fresh out of St. Cloud, Minnesota. This 2-stroke engine features noticeably faster throttle response and acceleration compared with our previous 8000, plus up to 30% reduction in oil consumption below 7000 rpm, 36% increase in low-end torque and 18% increase in midrange torque. Delivering a rare combination of increased power, reduced emissions and ultra-low oil consumption, the overall crispness sets new standards for performance and rideability in the 160-HP class.
NEXT-GEN BODY PANELS
Arctic Cat’s Next-Gen body panels are designed to seamlessly cut through the air with as little atmospheric tension as possible. With only a quarter-turn of the two quick-release tabs, the side panel comes off and provides easy access to the engine compartment for general maintenance.
ARCTIC DRIVE SYSTEM
The Arctic Drive System features CVT drive and driven clutches for a combination of smooth shifting, optimal performance, maximum durability; great serviceability; and reduced weight. The new drive clutch features a roller bearing on the shaft that enables an auto-adjusting belt tension design and delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5 percent lower effective starting ratio (while maintaining the top ratio) for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed, with more evenly distributed force for lower belt pressure. It’s a design that’s unique to Arctic Cat.
ARCTIC RACE FRONT SUSPENSION
ARS (Arctic Race Suspension) combines tall ski spindles and widely spaced A-arms for the greatest torsional rigidity and strength. The lower A-arms mount to the chassis at an angle from the chassis centerline, with optimal caster/camber angles to improve comfort and cornering traction while reducing bump/steer. The one-piece spindle construction with balljoints eliminates the added weight and stiction of spindle-in-housing designs.
XTRA-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION
This articulating system allows the rear of the suspension to move up and down as you ride across rougher snow, making your machine more maneuverable and more versatile. Backing up in the unlocked position allows the rear of the frame to lever up, rather than dig into the snow. For more traction, just lock the skid and you’ll have a straight-rail suspension that takes full advantage of the track.
DELUXE DIGITAL GAUGE
This dual configurable LCD screen gauge allows to you check all the vital information about your snowmobile and more. 14 different readings to be exact. There’s an odometer, speedometer, max RPM, 2 trip meters, engine hours, low oil light, coolant temperature, exhaust temperature, intake air temperature, battery voltage, fuel level, clock, reverse indicator, hand warmer and thumb warmer.
Made of strong, lightweight aluminum, our rear rack gives you the room you need for that extra bag.
REAR BAG STORAGE
No matter if you are on the job or on the trail, convenient, out-of-the-way storage is a helpful thing to have. The rear storage bag on the Norseman give you all that and more with its heavy-duty construction.
153-IN. POWER CLAW TRACK WITH 2.25-IN. LUGS
This lightweight, 153-in. single-ply track sets the standard for deep snow performance. Stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won’t fold over. 2.25-in. lug height lets you go deep with confidence.
Need to charge your phone or another electrical device? We’ve got you covered. Just plug in and power up while you ride.

PROUTE - 10/8 SKIS
