The ZR 7000 series is based on the familiar ProCross chassis, but it has a power option that’s new to Arctic Cat riders: a Yamaha three-cylinder four-stroke that puts out about 135 hp. ZR models are the bread and butter of Arctic Cat’s 2014 snowmobile lineup, and ones equipped with the Sno Pro package are the ones you’ll most likely see on the trails. Suspension ride quality is comfortable, yet impressively capable for high-speed, aggressive riders. The new race master cylinder is a big upgrade for 2014 to deliver more stopping power.
