Robust, Adventurous, Practical, Powerful, Comfortable
It's that sense of undiscovered, the thirst for adventure that takes you to places where few have tread, and that's exactly where the Alterra 600 TRV from Arctic Cat wants to take you. Built to withstand the rigors of an untamed world, this rugged, full-sized, two-rider ATV is an embodiment of power and reliability.
Riding this beast, with its monstrous 600cc, 45HP engine under the hood, is a symphony of throbbing power and controlled precision. This mean machine will take you on a joyride you'd want to relive again and again. And with 600 class EFI engine designed in St. Cloud, MN, it promises an adrenaline surge like never before.
But what truly sets the Alterra 600 TRV apart is its remarkable balance and poise. Thanks to its electronic power steering, you get to experience effortless handling. Every twist, turn, and curve on the trail feels smoother, as the enhanced suspension system absorbs the shocks of the uneven terrain.
The variety of models ensures there is something for everyone, from the explorers and sightseers to the tough terrains lovers. Alterra 600 TRV EPS, XT, and the LTD are all robust, reliable, and ready for the long haul. The LTD model, with its extra ground clearance, 26-inch tires with aluminum wheels, and selectable front locking differential, is quite the showstopper. It's designed for those who seek a little more – more adventure, more thrill, more challenge.
For a passenger, riding in the Alterra 600 TRV is as thrilling as it is comfortable. With a longer wheel base, multiple hand grips, a backrest, and foot rests, it promises a ride that's as memorable for the companion as it is for the driver. The large footwells ensure that comfort isn't a luxury, it's a given.
The Alterra 600 TRV is also remarkably practical, with a cargo capacity of 300-lbs. The driver-accessible storage space is ample and convenient, so whether you are on an expedition, a rescue mission, or a simple joy ride, you are always prepared. Plus, with the front and rear racks, you don't have to leave anything behind.
Should you find yourself stuck in a challenging situation, the 3,500-LB WARN Winch on the Alterra 600 TRV LTD can help you maneuver out with ease. And with a towing capacity of 1,050-lbs, this machine is equipped for work as much as play.
For those who love to stay connected and navigate effortlessly, the dash-mounted Garmin Tread Off Road GPS is a boon. While sold separately, it takes your journey to the next level, helping you keep track of routes, music and group members' locations.
To sum it up, the Alterra 600 TRV is not just an ATV; it's your partner in adventure, your comrade on the trail, your beast of burden when the going gets tough, and your joyride when you just want to let loose. To put it simply, it's a helluva ride!
