Many front locking differentials deliver traction--and nothing else. Enter Visco-4Lok, an integrated part of Outlander X mr 850/1000R & Renegade X mr 1000R models. New, rider-lockable performance for outstanding grip in extreme situations in addition to automatic locking for all-around handling in everyday use.
In normal riding, Visco-4Lok retains an on-the-fly limited slip front differential for unmatched handling and control in all riding condition. Select 4WD LOCK for terrain, obstacles, and situations that demand the most grip and control...anytime.
Happy anniversary--10 years of X mr riders and X mr models. With new Visco-4Lok, the next 10 will be even muddier. Send equal power to all four wheels, with direct mechanical torque transfer, progressive locking and natural throttle feel. Yeah, it's the locker you've been waiting for.
Engage the Visco-4Lok LOCK function at any moment, and everything changes. The manual locker sends power directly to the front wheels while delivering unmatched feel and control through the handlebars. Feel the pull forward through the deepest obstacles in your path.
When terrain takes hold and you start to lose traction, it's simple: release the throttle and engage Visco-4Lok rather than coming to a stop.
Go... then tow the others. Ensures maximum traction and enhanced slow-speed maneuverability especially on muddy terrain. 4WD LOCK mode engages equal power delivery to all four wheels. Instant, direct torque transfer & progressive throttle feel.
Two-wheel drive is exactly that: power is sent 50/50 to the rear wheels for confident handling and consistent, predictable power transfer. Perfect for casual trail riding, gravel roads, and everyday rides.
Four-wheel-drive sends power to the front wheels for superior grip in mud, snow, hillclimbs, hill descents, rocky terrain, and so on. Engine torque is varied as-needed between the two front wheels using the limited-slip function built into the Visco-4Lok front differential, giving riders total confidence in a wide range of conditions.
When off-throttle, before coming to a complete stop or becoming stuck, Visco-4Lok can be engaged to help power through challenging mud and across difficult terrain.
What is Visco-4Lok? A full, mechanical locking function added to the Visco-Lok limited-slip 4WD system. When the conditions call for a locked front differential, riders can manually LOCK the front differential.
Is Visco-4Lok a mechanical system? Absolutely--when engaged, power goes directly to the wheels from the main gear. The OVERRIDE function allows full 4WD lock to remain locked even under full throttle. When equipped, it's fully integrated into the ATV systems, including rider controls, ECU, DPS, and drivetrain calibration--Visco-4Lok was created for riders, by riders as the next evolution in extreme off-road traction.
