The TRV line up is quite versatile with two engine size choices and the option of buying the LE edition Limited Edition. Arctic Cat likes to call this unit the 3 in 1 ATV, just think, you can ride tandem, or remove the seat and replace it with either a SpeedRack or TBX style cargo box. The TRV is standard with double seating. The two other options must be bought separately from an authorized Arctic Cat dealer. Power levels and price are always an issue and maybe that’s why Cat has produced the TRV with a 400cc model and the 650 H1 model. Both models are outfitted with in and out 4 wheel drive, Electronic choke, start in gear feature and single lever hand operated hydrologic disc brakes. The 400cc model is an air/oil cooled, four stroke, engine. Now the 650 H1 is a four stroke, four valve, liquid cooled powerplant, and transferring power to the wheels of both models is done by a Duramatic automatic transmission with hi and low forward ranges along with reverse. A big change for this year is the TRV gearing, this year they reduced the gearing to 4. 0 in the front and rear differentials to give more low end power. Don’t think the TRV is a pushover, you’ll find all the big machine features in this work/play unit, such as push button in and out 4 wheel drive, and full under belly protection.
