Polaris’ $3799 Phoenix 200 sport quad is back with a new
color scheme and graphics. Its air-cooled, 196cc engine is
mated to an automatic PVT transmission. It’s shaft-driven for
The $3099 EFI Outlaw 110 is a great machine for riders
10 years old and up. It has a speed limiter and new Lime
Squeeze and Pink Power color schemes. It’s fully automatic
with forward, neutral and reverse.
SPORTSMAN 850 AND 850 SP
Like its bigger brother, the
Sportsman 850 is redesigned
and shares a lot of the nice features of the XP 1000. It uses a true
850cc ProStar engine that produces
78 horsepower and a new stainless
steel exhaust for 2017. The only option
that it doesn’t share with the 1000
is the Matte Copper color and the
Bluetooth gauge. The base model is
offered in two colors: Sage Green and
Indy Red. It retails for $8799. The SP
model comes in three color options:
Titanium Matte Metallic Black/Blue,
Matte Sunset Red and Pursuit Camo.
The SP models all retail at $10,299.
ACE 900 XC
The all-new Ace 900 XC looks like it
should be a killer little single-seat UTV
and is the most exciting single-seater
Polaris has offered. This single-seater
has the new 78-horsepower ProStar
900 engine that can tackle virtually any trail. The new long-travel
Walker Evans multi-position-adjust-able shocks offer 12. 3 inches of front
travel and 12. 6 inches of rear travel.
Until the 900 XC, all Ace models used
MacPherson-strut front suspension,
but the 900 XC features dual-A-arm
suspension (front and rear) that supplies 13 inches of ground clearance.
A-arm suspension makes long-travel
numbers far easier to achieve. This
Ace is also 59 inches wide, which is
11 inches wider than the standard
Ace models. Being this wide gives it a
more stable stance for better off-road-
ing capability and a smoother ride. It
also offers 10 percent more legroom,
over a gallon of cockpit storage and
all-new digital instrumentation with
Bluetooth capability. Other features
include 27-inch GBC Commander
tires, variable-assist power steering,
quick-access quarter doors, Cut &
Sew high-back bucket seats, and a tilt
steering wheel. This model comes in
one color—Matte Silver Pearl—and it
retails for $12,999.
The Ace 500 is a new model for
2017. It replaced the Ace 330, so the
500 is now the starting model and
at $500 less than the 330. It offers
the 32-horsepower, 500cc, EFI ProStar
engine, which creates 30 foot-pounds
of torque. It offers true On-Demand
all-wheel drive/two-wheel drive to get
you through any sticky situation. It
uses the MacPherson-strut suspension that offers 8. 2 inches of travel
in the front and 9. 5 inches in the
rear with its dual-A-arm IRS setup.
It’s offered in Indy Red only, and it
retails for $6999. That makes it the
least expensive Ace yet. ❏
We can’t wait to drive the Aee 900xc!
This new single-seater promises vastly
improved suspension and handling performance in the rough and at speed.
