2017 Arctic Cat Alterra 400


Arctic Cat
Alterra 400



  • Ride-In Suspension: This mid-sized machine provides big performance with 10 inches of ground clearance and seven inches of suspension travel. Trail bumps are what this machine eats for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
  • 400 H1 4-Stroke Engine: There’s nothing mid-sized about this single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled, 366cc 4-stroke engine. The combination of this mighty motor and the 400 chassis will bring an instant smile to your face.
  • Digital Gauge: The digital gauge features large critical operation information indicators: clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, differential lock, high beam, temperature and oil pressure.
  • Kenda Pathfinder Tires With Powder-Coated Steel Wheels: Directional and widely spaced lugs provide a smooth ride and the grip you want when spending the day on the trails.
  • On-the-Fly 2WD/4WD: Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. Go from 2WD to 4WD with a flick of a switch.
  • Rear 2-Inch Receiver: Hooking up to your boat trailer, utility trailer, SPEEDPoint™ attachments or whatever you need to haul doesn’t get much easier with this rugged, 2-inch rear receiver.

ATVs can be hazardous to operate. For your safety always wear an approved helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never engage in stunt driving; riding and alcohol/drugs don’t mix and could cause serious injury or even death. Avoid excessive speeds and be particularly careful on difficult terrain. Arctic Cat recommends that all riders read and understand their operator’s manual before operation. Along with concerned conservationists everywhere, Arctic Cat urges you to “Tread Lightly” on public and private lands. Ride only on designated areas or trails. Preserve your future riding opportunities by showing respect for the environment, local laws, and the rights of others when riding. Do not shoot from or lean firearms or bows against the ATV. Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV. Only ride an ATV that is right for your age. Supervise riders younger than 16. The minimum operator age for ATVs is 16, 14 on the 150 model and over 12 on the 90 and DVX 90 models. Arctic Cat recommends that all riders take a training course. For safety or training information in the U.S., call the ATV Safety Institute at (800) 887-2887. In Canada, call the Canada Safety Council (613) 739-1535 or see your dealer. ®™ are trademarks or registered trademarks of Arctic Cat Inc. ©2014 Arctic Cat Sales Inc., Thief River Falls, MN 56701.
