Advantages of the Arctic Cat Electronic Power Steering are:

Provides appropriate assist to the steering column through an electronic motor allowing steering assistance to the ATV before it even starts to move at idle.

Huge benefit to conserving the riders input energy when in 2wd, 4wd or 4wd lock.

The variable assist system is driven by an electronic control unit (ECU) that measures steering input force versus tire resistance and vehicle speed.

The Arctic Cat power steering ECU program is designed to maintain a light steering input effort, but maintains enough feel so you have a better understanding of what the tire contact patch is doing in relation to the terrain after sustained riding.

The system utilizes a sealed, brushless motor for longer life.
The sport-inspired Prowler 700 XTX receives an all-new round tube canopy design and Electronic Power Steering with a tilt steering wheel.
Next, the ultimate in sport UTVs is the Prowler 1000 XTZ with an all-new round tube design canopy, Maxxis Big Horn 2.0 tires and Electronic Power Steering.
