Suspension: More than anything else, the Wildcat 1000i H.O. is about suspension performance. With 17 inches of travel on the double A-arm front and 18 inches on the 5-link rear (both dampened by 16-click compression adjustable Walker Evans units featuring spring preload adjustability), this is a machine that soaks up the wicked stuff on a level similar to the custom side by side racing machines (having price tags equivalent to a fleet of Wildcats!).
Electronic Power Steering: Effortless steering control is a beautiful thing, whether it's when you're in 4wd and crawling or flat out through ruts, dips and whatever else.
Cat-Like Landing: In the feline sense, the Wildcat 1000i H.O. lands on its feet. Despite being nearly sideways at roughly 30 mph, several feet high in the air, rest assured the Wildcat 1000i H.O. will land safely and instantly correct itself for rapid onward travel
Cockpit comfort: The adjustable-tilt steering wheel, contoured cut-and-sewn seats and 3-pt. "anti-cinch" seat belt are comfortable and secure, whether you are cruising or riding stupid-fast over the harsh stuff.
Power: The 1000 H2 EFI V-Twin, SOHC, 4-stroke, 4-valve engine has been tweaked with 50mm throttle body and ceramic-coated twin pipes for increased performance. Mid-range is good. Throttle-control is wonderful, with smooth modulation and transitions. And there's a powerful throatiness sound that matches what this side by side is all about.
Doors: Simple to use (opening from the front and swinging rearward) and add peace-of-mind when tapping into the performance possibilities of the Wildcat.
4-Wheel-Drive: The Wildcat 1000i H.O. comes with selectable 2wd/4wd (with full differential-lock). In sandy or muddy conditions, with the 40/60 percent front/rear weight bias AND power steering, there is no downside to going 4wd all the time, but lots of upside.
Bonus points for the Peak Torque Limiter (PTL) on the rear end, which allows a brief "slip" during torque spikes to prevent drivetrain carnage and enables the driver to stay on the "gas" in situations that would otherwise cause all sorts of nastiness.
Low C of G/Rider Position: The Wildcat's low centre-of-gravity combined with a low seating position means that the occupants don't get pitched around (either side-to-side or fore/aft) like you do on EVERY other side-by-side. This is another reason why you feel so in control and part of the machine.
Braking: Strong braking performance with good pedal "feel" translate into confident deceleration.
Cool Stuff: The LED lighting, automotive paint, thoughtful door latch, tilt wheel, exoskeleton chassis, Park-in-transmission (instead of the normal parking brake), 300-lb. rear storage (with integrated tie-down hooks) and powered-up stator (for a host of electrical accessories) are cool, smart features that push the Wildcat 1000i H.O. into new territory.
