Riding the 6000 is an experience you should not deprive yourself of.
The power from the new DSI mill is exceptional and maybe a little elusive. Running up Kevlar Lake at 50 mph then whacking the flipper hard produces an instant, urgent backshift that’ll push you back in the seat while pulling briskly to the C-note.
We felt the DSI was every bit as fast as the 600 E-TEC and stronger than the Liberty 600. The Pro-Cross chassis does the fingerwalk at the big end and thus we expect it’ll be the top end king in the 600 class this winter.
Plying the El Tigre into a twisty trail is not just fun but confidence inspiring. The flat and level attitude the chassis displays approaching a turn allows the pilot to set-up the sled with the brake for a quick run at the apex and a hard charge on exit.
The 129-inch track is transparent. Instead of creating understeer it offers a settled, comfortable and linear feel in turns.
Here’s our take: You’re gonna like this snowmobile even if you hate Arctic Cats.
