Features

Capabilities

  • SERIOUS POWER: The 8000-series, C-TEC2 twin cylinder, two-stroke engine is the heart and soul of the Norseman. This heavy-duty engine is designed with the most difficult tasks in mind- hauling, towing and climbing through the snow. It delivers enough power to get the job done every time.
  • VERSATILE DESIGN: The adjustable ski stance allows the Norseman to adapt to whatever conditions it may face. This exceptional versatility makes it simple to switch from task to task, regardless of how different they may be.
  • STRIKING APPEARANCE, INTENTIONAL DESIGN: Just because the Norseman is designed to work hard doesn’t mean it can’t look good in the process. Keep your snowmobile looking top-notch with a painted chassis. Not only does it look striking, but this paint also prevents corrosion, keeping your vehicle in excellent condition over time and reducing standard wear-and-tear.
  • SMOOTH PERFORMANCE: 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.
  • HEAVY-DUTY SUPPORT: The XTRA-ACTION Adjustable Rear Suspension is built to tackle any challenge or condition you face. The adaptable design can be locked for increased traction while towing heavier loads or unlocked for improved flotation when backing up in deep snow.
  • QUICK, EASY START: The convenience and ease of electric start lets you get up and moving right away.
