When you stab the throttle from a standing start, the Ace 900
XC leaps forward. If the front wheels kick off something, the
front will jump into a full wheelie.
Polaris added legroom to the Spartan single-seat cockpit. It is easier to enter and
exit the machine as well.
❏ We may have mentioned before
that one of our industry friends has
quipped that the Polaris Ace is for
UTV enthusiasts who don’t have any
friends. With the Ace 900 XC, your
friends are very lucky you don’t have
room for them. The 900 XC mixes wild
performance with a laugh-factory fun
factor. It allows (and encourages) you
to drive with speed and aggressiveness that is simply not compatible
with the image and capabilities of its
shorter-travel, narrower-tracked and
wheelbase-limited smaller brothers.
In horsepower and suspension travel,
the Ace 900 XC is most closely related
to the popular RZR S 900. The S 900
is plenty powerful, but the Ace XC is
close to 200 pounds lighter and has a
wheelbase that’s 11. 5 inches shorter!
If you have the front wheels against a
rock or log, full throttle from a standing start will end in a big wheelie!
