The 2011 Arctic Cat M8 162 is a mid-range snowmobile similar to the 2011 Arctic Cat M8 153. The M8 162 only sports a couple of improvements over the M8 153, most notably being an improved lightweight seat design and a 162" Power Claw track (as opposed to the M8 153's 153" track). Otherwise, the two snowmobiles sport the same basic features, including a Coil-Over rear suspension system and lightweight running boards.
The M8 162's improved lightweight seat design is even lighter than the seat featured on the M8 153 while its tapered shape improves maneuverability whether sitting or standing. Its 162" Power Claw track provides the M8 162 with optimal traction in even the most extreme icy conditions. Meanwhile, the M8 162's Coil-Over rear suspension system improves ride quality and consistency by absorbing most bumps and falls.
