POLARIS SPORTSMAN XP 1000 ($11,699)
The Sportsman XP 1000 has a powerful 88-horsepower
ProStar, twin-cylinder engine and On-Demand all-wheel
drive. Power steering comes standard on this powerhouse,
and independent suspension softens the ride up front and
in the rear of the machine. Cast-aluminum wheels come
standard on this ATV as well.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN 850/850 SP ($8,499/$9,999)
Another strong contender in Polaris’ ATV lineup is the
Sportsman 850. A true 850cc, liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder
powerplant rests in its frame. Power steering doesn’t come
standard on the 850. Electronic power steering, aluminum
wheels and active descent control come on the 850 SP.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN 570/570 SP ($6,599/$8,599)
Just like the 850 and 850 SP, the Sportsman 570 and 570
SP share many of the same features, like a 44-horsepower
ProStar engine that is liquid-cooled, but they are also different. The SP version comes with active descent control
and an engine braking system. Power steering and aluminum wheels are also standard features on the SP model
of the 570.
KYMCO MAXXER 450i ($6,999)
The Maxxer 450i is Kymco’s take at a sporty 4x4 ATV,
and they did a great job. The suspension is fully independent in the front and rear with five-way adjustable shocks
with dual-rate springs. The transmission is an automatic
CVT style, and the machine has engine braking for more
control down hills. The 443cc four-stroke engine is electronically fuel injected.
POLARIS SCRAMBLER XP 1000/850 ($13,299/$9,499)
Polaris’s Scrambler line holds their pure-sport 4x4 ATVs.
The XP 1000 holds a 952cc, liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder
four-stroke engine that is electronically fuel-injected. Dual-A-arm suspension is found in the front and rear of these
machines. Power steering comes standard on both, and
an On-Demand AWD/2WD system rotates the wheels of
POLARIS SPORTSMAN XP 1000/850 HIGH LIFTER
For fans of mud sports, Polaris teamed up with High
Lifter to bring two full-on mud wranglers to their 2016
lineup. They both have snorkel kits for diving deep into the
muck and relocated radiators that rest on the front racks
to reduce debris getting lodged in them. The XP 1000 has
sturdy front and rear bumpers, high-clearance suspension
and a 3500-pound winch.
