CFMOTO C-FORCE 600 ($6499)
The 594cc version of CFMoto’s two-up ATV is downsized
in most ways. The motor is a fuel-injected, single-cylinder,
SOHC four-stroke that is said to produce 33 horsepower.
The wheels are smaller, and you don’t get top-end paint,
but it still has standard features that are usually
upgrades, like alloy rims and a 2000-pound winch. The
price makes it the most affordable two-up on the market.
CFMOTO C-FORCE 800 ($8399)
CFMoto is a Chinese company that’s small in the U.S. but
well-known in Europe and Asia. The C-Force 800 is the company’s top-of-the-line ATV, and it has all the features of a premium two-up ATV at an excellent price. The 800cc V-twin motor
is similar to a Rotax 800R and produces a claimed 61 horsepower. In standard trim, it comes with high-end features like
power steering, automotive paint, alloy wheels and a winch.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN TOURING 850 EPS ($10,999)
Polaris gave all its premium Sportsman 4x4 models
power steering as standard equipment this year, and the
Touring 850 is about as premium as it gets. The wheelbase
is only 4 inches longer than that of the single-seat
Sportsman, but the passenger still gets posh surroundings
with suspension built into the rear seat. The Bronze Mist
LE model gives more upgrades and sells for $13,399.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN TOURING 550 EPS ($9299)
Like the 550 single-seater, the Touring two-up version
gets electronic power steering as standard equipment for
2014. You get a front storage compartment below the rack
with 8. 2 gallons of space. If you want to go solo and gain
more room for stuff, you can remove the passenger seat
and install an optional Polaris Lock & Ride accessory box
with 2. 5 gallons of space.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN X2 550 EPS ($9699)
When you get fed up with people and want to run
away, the X2 is willing to be your only friend. It converts
from two-up to solo in seconds and gives you a 400-pound
dump box where the passenger used to sit. You also have
enclosed storage for 8. 2 gallons of Wilson soccer balls
with faces (or whatever) in front. For 2014, electronic
power steering comes as standard equipment.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN TOURING 570 EFI ($7699)
It isn’t often that a company offers its newest motor in a
budget-oriented machine, but that’s what Polaris did with
the Touring 570. It has the 44-horsepower 570 motor in a
MacPherson strut chassis, similar to that of the older 500.
The bodywork is slimmer and more modern than the 500’s,
and it has more range thanks to a larger, 4.6-gallon tank.
A power steering version isn’t available. ;
