2018 TEXTRON ALTERRA 300
The Alterra name says it all, with the class- leading combination of suspension, load capacity, horsepower, comfort and quality for an overall experience that exceeds expectations for a two- wheel drive machine.
The sculpted fenders, headlights and grille maximize ergonomics and durability, and are narrow enough to maneuver through the tight woods yet protect you from mud and water spray. Composite front and rear racks are impact-resistant and provide 50-pound/100-pound front/rear capacities. Full- length composite floorboards enhance surefooted traction while the low seat height increases rider comfort and control.
The heart of the 300 is its spirited single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 270cc 4-stroke engine, which, combined with an automatic transmission and lightweight chassis, delivers an unstoppable force of fun. A backup engine fan delivers consistent cooling. And automatic CVT transmission provides High, Low and Reverse for maximum ease and usability.
The ultra-tough chassis is lightweight in comparison to its mid- and full-sized competition, which translates into rider-friendly handling. It features dual A-arm front suspension and a swingarm-style rear, each boasting 5 inches of suspension travel. Ground clearance is 10 inches, which coupled with 22-inch front and rear Kenda Path nder tires on 10-inch rims, give riders the con dence to tackle any terrain.
Standard equipment includes a 500-pound towing capacity; dual halogen headlights; hydraulic disc brakes; digital instrument pod and Start-In-Gear capability.
