2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 POWER TO SPARE

165HP- or 200HP-Class Engines

Whether you want to cruise the trail or carve the backcountry, RIOT is available with a 794cc 165HP-class engine or a 988cc turbo-charged 200HP-class engine.

2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 Playful, Comfortable Ride

CROSS-ACTION Rear Suspension

The uncoupled CROSS-ACTION rear suspension provides unparalleled agility from powder to hardpack. The design enables the front and rear halves of the suspension to move independently, so riders enjoy excellent cornering and bump absorption on the trail, as well as off-trail weight transfer.

2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 SMOOTH PERFORMANCE

ADAPT CVT

The lightweight, durable ADAPT CVT System is the only self-adjusting clutch available on a stock sled. ADAPT has an idler bearing that keeps belt temperature down, helping belts stay tighter and giving you a smoother takeoff and consistent power delivery at slow speeds.

2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING HANDLING

ARS II Front Suspension

The race-proven ARS™ II front suspension delivers superior cornering and more ground clearance for an even better ride ride on- or off-trail. The forged aluminum spindles are 1.5 inches taller from ski to the lower arm, and it features rigid upper A-Arms for optimal control and durability.

2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 EASIER STEERING

G2 ProClimb Skis

The lightweight G2 ProClimb™ 7-inch mountain ski is tapered to stay on top of the snow. The ski works in tandem with the AMS spindles for easier steering and better deep snow performance.

2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 Go Wide or Narrow

Adjustable Ski Stance

An adjustable 41.5- to 43.5-inch ski stance provides the flexibility to ride in a wide variety of snow conditions. Narrow it up for better agility in the backcountry or widen it out for a flatter, more stable trail ride.

2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 Big Air-Worthy

Reinforced Running Boards

With new rugged styling and improved durability, the RIOT's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for extra rigidity and are designed to take the impact when you send it.

2023 Arctic Cat RIOT 8000 Versatile Suspension

ATAC Adjustable On-the-Fly Suspension

The ATAC Adjustable On-the-Fly Suspension immediately adjusts the FOX® ZERO iQS shocks with the push of a button to navigate changing snow conditions. Choose between two rider profiles, three firmness settings and engage lockout mode to ride your way. Available on select models.
