950 Bigfoot MX8
WATER AND DIRT. AN AGE-OLD RECIPE FOR BLISS.
Here’s one for those who like rolling around in the messy stuff. The Aurora Bigfoot MX8. After all, this beast was born with mud in its veins. For proof, check out the strapping VX 950 V-Twin engine at the heart. It delivers the oomph you need to plow through the ugliest of pits.
The tires are equally resolute – they’re a robust 25" and boast unique chevron treads meant to provide plenty of clout in the quagmire. And the ARGO Progressive Steering (APS) makes it a joy to point toward the next mud pit. So, ready to get dirty?

VX 950 Engine
This VX 950 V-Twin Fan-Cooled engine is built to never let you down. Big Block™ performance that delivers our highest horsepower and highest torque available on the Aurora and Conquest Series.
Instant Torque Clutch (ITC)
The ARGO Instant Torque Drive System (ITDS) dramatically improves low-end torque and increases acceleration. The Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) is designed to provide the optimal gear ratio, shifting seamlessly throughout the full range to utilize the massive torque and power of our engines.
ARGO Progressive Steering (APS)
The ARGO Admiral transmission with ARGO Progressive Steering (APS) is an innovation in braking force application to the transmission steering differential. By adding a spring element between the handlebars and the brake system, we have achieved a progressive dual-rate steering system.
This development, combined with the Admiral transmission, is a technological milestone that gives the ultimate driver experience. Steering events are effortless and confidence-inspiring, offering the smoothest turning available in an ARGO XTV. An ARGO is as fun and comfortable to drive as any UTV.
ARGO Progressive Steering (APS)
APS is an innovation in the area of braking force application to the transmission steering differential. By adding a spring element between the handlebars and the brake system we achieved a progressive, dual-rate steering system. Steering events are now effortless with an increase of 4X wider range of steering motion, offering the smoothest turning available in an ARGO XTV. APS makes it as fun and comfortable to drive as any UTV.
AirLock™ Rims & Mud Tires
The 2020 Aurora Bigfoot MX8 has stepped up its mud game this year with new 25” XT119 ARGO-only mud tires with aluminum AirLock™ rims. The all-new innovative chevron treads maximize your power in thick mud pits and increase your propulsion in whatever waterway you decide to drive in.
Reduced Underhood Temperature
To ensure comfort for the operator and passengers, heat-reflective and absorptive material is integrated into the firewall. A composite exhaust shroud goes one step further and effectively redirects heat while producing a subtle note from the exhaust.
Winch and Brushguard
Pulling power for when you need it most. ARGO’s winch mounts on the front to assist with high-angle extractions of equipment or debris. Comes standard on this year's Bigfoot MX8.
