  • 1000 H2 EFI Engine - This fuel-injected 951cc V-Twin is the largest displacement in the industry. Single overhead cam, 90 degree V-twin cylinders and hemispherical-shaped heads deliver mind blowing power, acceleration and an adrenaline rush like no other. The smooth, deep growl from this bad boy is a warning for others to back off.
  • 14" Aluminum Rims - Heavy-duty polished aluminum rims with painted black inlays. Yep, they look as fast as this machine is.
  • 18" Of Rear Suspension Travel - The rear suspension has a first-ever 5-pt. multilink system that keeps the tire flat while the suspension fully cycles through an industry-leading 18 inches of travel. The 5-pt. link reduces camber and axle plunge to soak up harsh terrain.
  • Automotive-style Paint
  • Electronic Power Steering - A smoother, more confident ride is yours with our electronic power steering (EPS) system. Its variable assist measures steering input force versus tire resistance along with speed, providing reduced steering torque and the ultimate power steering assist.
  • LED Lighting
  • Tilt Steering
  • Ultradurable Exoskeleton Frame - Inspired by sand rail racers, the exoskeleton frame of the Wildcat is one to be marveled. The full perimeter frame is an industry first on a mass-produced vehicle.
