      Polaris RZR XP 1000

      After striking a sponsorship agreement with the Best In The Desert (BITD)Racing Series, the Polaris RZR has been named the official UTV of the off-road racing series. As well, Polaris will be sponsoring four BITD races, including the season-opening THR Motorsports Parker 250 which takes place Feb. 6-8.

      “Best in the Desert has been at the forefront of promoting desert side-by-side racing, and Polaris RZR is excited to support the series and its racers,” says Craig Scanlon, general manager of Polaris Side-by-Side Vehicles. “Our partnership with Best in the Desert will help us share the off-road racing experience with more people so we can continue to build interest in the sport.”

        Mitch Guthrie RZR XP 1000

        The King of the Hammers is known as the toughest off-road race in the world, and this year, the person who conquers the course will go home with a brand-new, 2015 RZR XP 1000 EPS.

        As part of Polaris RZR being the official side-by-side of the race, Polaris sweetened the deal by offering up a RZR XP 1000 EPS to the Pro Class side-by-side winner. Last year, 26 side-by-sides would vie for “The Hammer” with five-time Hammers Winner Mitch Guthrie winning in his RZR XP 1000 EPS.

          Top 10 ATVs and UTVs of 2014 Feature

          The world of off road has been turned on its head over the past 12 months. When choosing our 10 favorite ATVs and UTVs of 2014, we started with a list of 50 new and revised models and we hear rumors of more on the way almost weekly.

          Getting on the gas with several marketing moves, the sleeping giant, Honda, has been very active. This gives us proof that the industry is beginning to wake up even more. We have seen an inflating trend in the working side of the industry as many companies start to focus on the bread and butter of what fills the bank account for them.

          Hunting is a huge part of the Side-by-Side industry. Without hunters, ranchers, active farmers or land maintenance workers, we would not be seeing the evolution to the Utility side of this industry. In 2014, Yamaha brought out the Viking VI while rethinking and redesigning the way three people fill the front and back stretch of a working ride. And there are many more examples of manufacturers finding ways to make these machines better and more useful.

          That same forward thinking is perhaps even more evident in the Sport segment. The fight for power and suspension travel supremacy continues. Consumers want to go faster and jump Mount Rushmore with little more than a tickle on the seat bottom upon landing. Using shock packages that are made for what seems to be full size trucks, companies like FOX, Elka and Walker Evans have seen a spike in sales not only to consumers but also to manufacturers who use their equipment on specific models.

          As we look ahead to 2015, we are seeing an industry that is alive and well. This past year has been incredible for ATV and UTV fans. Now we’ll take a look at our 10 favorite machines unveiled in 2014.

            Polaris RZR Suzuki GSXR

            We recently saw perhaps the coolest Polaris RZR video in the history of the Internet. You need to see it too.

            Not convinced? What if we told you it involved a RZR racing around a frozen lake with a Suzuki GSX-R sportbike, both outfitted with studded tires? Is this still not enough for you? How about an angry ice fisherman lobbing grenades that result in explosions of fire and ice around the vehicles?
