Arctic Cat
ZR 6000 ES (R XC 129)



  • Next-Gen Body Panels: Arctic Cat’s Next-Gen body panels are designed to seamlessly cut through the air with as little atmospheric tension as possible. With only a quarter-turn of the two quick-release tabs, the side panel comes off and provides easy access to the engine compartment for general maintenance.
  • 6000 C-TEC2 Engine with DSI: This 599cc 2-stroke DSI is the unmodified version of the engine that’s been launching Team Arctic down the racetrack since 2012. This quick-revving, 125-class horsepower C-TEC2™ power mill is the product of a world-class engine assembly plant — ours. Whether you’re riding a ZR® an M or a Crossover, the 6000 is one of the most satisfying engines found in a snowmobile.
  • Arctic Drive System with TEAM Rapid Response II Drive Clutch: The Arctic Drive System™ features a lightweight magnesium chaincase. The new TEAM® Rapid Response II™ drive clutch features an auto-adjusting belt tension design that delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5% lower effective starting ratio while maintaining the top ratio for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed.
  • Deluxe Digital Gauge: This dual configurable LCD screen gauge allows to you check all the vital information about your snowmobile and more. 14 different readings to be exact. There’s an odometer, speedometer, max RPM, 2 trip meters, engine hours, low oil light, coolant temperature, exhaust temperature, intake air temperature, battery voltage, fuel level, clock and reverse indicator.
  • 12V Outlet: Need to charge your phone or another electrical device? We’ve got you covered. Just plug in and power up while you ride.
  • Electric Start: This is just the thing for consistent, reliable starting. A simple turn of the key is all you need to get up and running.
  • Hand & Thumb Warmers: Say goodbye to cold hands. Our hand and thumb warmers provide plenty of warmth and comfort on long rides.
  • 129-in. Cobra Track with 1.25-in. Lugs: The cupped lug design on the Cobra track provides superior handling, acceleration and braking on soft, loose snow.
  • Tether Switch: Standard on the ZR 6000 R XC, this tether switch has safety in mind. If you ever get separated from your machine while riding, the tether disengages and turns off all power to your machine.
  • Lightweight Brake Disc: For improved performance, we’ve made the rotor 12% larger, yet 60% lighter. That translates to more confidence behind the handlebars.
  • Hand Guards: These hand guards not only help keep your hands warm, they’re made of durable, injection-molded plastic to stand up to tough conditions.
  • ProCross - 5 Skis: Exclusively on our ZR 6000 R XC, the ProCross™ 5 is our narrowest ski and is specifically built for speed.
