The Outlaw is powered by an air-cooled, two-valve, four-stroke mill. It
starts easily using a push button. It’s
easy to access and service.
Up front the Outlaw is suspended by
independent arms and travels a full 3
inches. For the speeds this 50 travels,
they work fine.
The rear of the Outlaw 50 has a standard swingarm with 3 inches of movement. The small muffler keeps noise
levels ultra quiet.
Polaris equips all of their youth ATVs
with a safety ignition tether, a safety
flag and a free helmet.
It’s no secret kids grow fast. Polaris
knows this, so they put a second level
of floorboards on the Outlaw 50. This
way, you can remove them and keep
them when the time comes.
This little Outlaw has a safe top-speed limit of 15 mph. That may sound slow, but in
a small neighborhood field, that’s plenty fast.
The little Outlaw comes equipped
with a 1.2-gallon gas tank, which is
good for an hour and a half of non stop
riding, or about 20 miles of easy flat
trails. Polaris puts a label near the gas
cap, warning dads not to use ethanol-based gas. The quad will run fine on it,
but the ethanol will eventually create
sediment in the tank that can clog carburetor jets. The smaller the machine,
the bigger this becomes an issue. If
you have no other choice, make sure
you turn the fuel petcock off after every
ride and run the motor out of gas. This
way, gas does not sit in the carb creat-ing problems. Starbrite has an enzyme
fuel treatment that works perfect to
combat the effects of ethanol, see all of
their products at www.starbrite.com or

VP Racing sells an ethanol-free
fuel that would work well in preventing these problems that Polaris is
warning against. In fact, you should
be aware of this in all of your ATVs.
We see problems in larger machines
too. The VP fuel can be shipped via
UPS to your door through
We liked that Polaris equipped the
Outlaw 50 with two sets of floorboards.
The upper set can be removed as your
kid grows. Kawasaki uses this same
feature on their 50. We had riders
under 4 feet tall comfortably sit and
control the Outlaw. Like we said earli-
