“We take great pride in addressing what consumers desire in our Sportsman ATV vehicles and going beyond the call to ensure each upgrade continues to raise the bar,” said Roger Hapka, Vice President, Off-Road Vehicles. “With each new offering, we are working to ensure our vehicles provide consumers with the ultimate riding experience.”
Here is how Polaris describes its three new ATV models:
Sportsman XP 1000 LE – Lava Orange Metallic – $12,799
The most powerful Sportsman ever built, Sportsman XP 1000 LE, is now available in an exclusive new Lava Orange Metallic paint with matte titanium accented cut-and-sew seats. Rack extenders, a third LED brake light, the Ultimate Series Front Bumper and a 3,500-pound HD winch provide added off-road capability. Also included are new color-matched matte titanium metallic wheels and 27-inch VIPR tires, making the Sportsman XP 1000 LE the ultimate vehicle for a big bore rider experience.
Additional features for the XP 1000 and XP 1000 LE include the proven 90 HP ProStar Twin EFI engine, exclusive 3-mode throttle control, more than eight gallons of weather-resistant storage and 11.5 inches of ground clearance. A high-clearance dual A-arm suspension and engine braking system (EBS) with active descent control (ADC) offer riders peace of mind on unforgiving terrain. Its industry-leading 575-pound payload and 1,500-pound towing capacity allow riders to tackle the toughest jobs.
Sportsman 570 EPS LE – Breakout Camo – $8,199
The limited edition features automotive-style paint, an upgrade for 570 EPS models, in an all-new “breakout camo” pattern with orange accents. The best-selling Sportsman 570 EPS LE offers Electronic Power Steering (EPS), a purpose-built 44 HP ProStar EFI engine with dual overhead cam, front bumper, and 2,500-pound winch. The vehicle’s legendary suspension and handling gives riders the ability to navigate the toughest terrains with 11 inches of ground clearance, improved EBS (Engine Braking System) and a digital display.
Sportsman 450 H.O EPS – Ghost Gray – $6,899
The new Sportsman 450 H.O. EPS in Ghost Gray has the same great features as the Sportsman 450 H.O. EPS model, one of the industry’s best value ATVs. Featuring a capable 33 HP ProStar EFI engine, 10.5 inches of ground clearance, massive 1,225-pounds towing, and industry-leading storage capacity, the 450 H.O. EP in Ghost Gray is built to conquer tough tasks and terrain.
