2020 Arctic Cat Riot 8000 146"/1.60" ES Charcoal/Electric Blue
The True 50/50 Crossover
Both Riot and Riot X deliver ruthless crossover versatility, with available ARS™ II front suspension and CROSS-ACTION rear suspension. For deeper and steeper riding, Riot X is built to handle mountain riding.
- Riot 8000: Our powerful 8000-Series C-TEC2, 794cc engine, with FOX rear shocks to provide a smooth ride anywhere.
- CROSS-ACTION Rear Suspension: CROSS-ACTION blends the increased weight transfer of an uncoupled rear arm with the optimal cornering and bump absorption of the patented SLIDE-ACTION front arm.
- FOX® ZERO QS3 Shocks: Easy to adjust, and built for any terrain and riding style. Our premium FOX ZERO QS3 shocks are available in 1.5- or 2.0-inch diameters.
- ARS™ II Front Suspension: The new Arctic Race Suspension (ARS II) puts everything we learned about conquering tough terrain onto your Riot.
- G2 ProClimb™ 7 Mountain Ski: This lightweight ski is contoured for easier steering, and integrates with the AMS spindles for better deep-snow performance.
- Adjustable Ski Stance: Easily adjust your ski stance —from 42- to 43 inches on Riot and from 39.5- to 41.5 inches on Riot X — for maximum adaptability.
- Reinforced Running Boards: Big air means big impact, which is why Riot's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for added rigidity.
- Rear Rack: Haul more gear for an all-day ride with this standard rear rack.
