The all-new 2005 Arctic Cat 500 4x4 ATV is the best all around 500 in its class that offers outstanding performance and off-road capability. I had purchased my brand new 2005 Arctic Cat in August 2004 and I have rarely been disappointed with this bike. Every time I ride this ATV, I put through its paces and every single time the bike comes out smiling. I use this ATV year-round in the deep snow, plowing my driveway, hunting, and just playing in the mud. The only two things that I have to say about this bike are: if you're looking for an alright fast and agile 500, buy the Suzuki Vinson 500 4x4 and, if you want the best ATV in its class that has outstanding towing and off-road performance, then buy a 2005 Arctic Cat 500 and hit the trails with off-road confidence.
