Efficient, durable engine design
Powerful liquid-cooled 475 cc engine is longitudinally mounted, allowing direct driveshaft alignment to both front and rear wheels for maximum drivetrain efficiency. Liquid cooling provides consistent engine operating temperature in extreme conditions for maximum power output and long engine life. Overhead-valve design provides compact engine dimensions for improved ground clearance while maintaining a broad, easy-to-use powerband. Rubber-cushion engine mounting and gear-driven counter-balancer reduce vibration.
Easy and efficient
Convenient electric starting, with an automatic internal-decompression system, gets you going quickly and easily. Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) improves power delivery and throttle response, and increases fuel efficiency for extended range.
Advanced transmission with three drive modes
Rugged five-speed transmission features manual foot shifting with an automatic clutch. One-handed reverse shift mechanism allows you to select reverse without ever taking your hand from the handlebars. Super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with low-rpm engagement for excellent drivability and towing capacity. 2WD/4WD system offers three drive modes: 2WD; 4WD with torque-sensing front differential; and 4WD with locked front differential to optimize traction. The system also features a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked to allow increased wheel speed under severe conditions, such as deep mud.
A sub-chamber in the air cleaner reduces resonant noise for quieter operation.
Stainless-steel exhaust system includes a USDA-qualified spark arrester/muffler designed for quiet operation without servicing for long-lasting performance.
High output 470 watt alternator has extra capacity to help power electrical accessories and to keep personal electronics charged.
