❏ Hisun lists its Sector 750 UTV as a
utility model and prices it like a base
model, but the specifications and
equipment are more in line with a
well-equipped general-purpose recreation machine. Like the Hisun Forge
750 two-up quad Dirt Wheels tested
recently, the level of standard equipment is impressive for a machine that
retails for a tick under 10 grand. For a
base-price machine, it has a quality
look to it, ample comfort, aggressive
tires on cast-aluminum wheels and
fully adjustable shocks. It also comes
stock with A-arm guards, a roof and
a 3500-pound-capacity winch. On top
of that equipment are safety features
like a horn and turn signals. You can
buy a machine from one of the big
brands at this price. One example
is the Polaris Ranger 570. It is the
same price and has approximately
equivalent performance at the same
price, but at this price the Polaris has
steel wheels, no roof, no suspension
guards, no winch and no mirrors.
Flip up the dump bed and you
will see a big single-cylinder engine
with a single overhead cam and four
valves. It has electronic fuel injection and transfers the power through
a CVT. It is a willing engine that
fires instantly and runs very cleanly.
Throttle response is quite good from
very low rpm. As the revs climb, the
engine feels less content, though our
unit was brand new and seemed to
run better and better with more miles
We tried a variety of compression
damping settings, and they do make
a difference. Less damping gives a
smoother ride but turns suffer.
We don’t know why all UTVs don’t
come stock with mirrors. They make life
much easier when you need to back up.
Inside the machine you do feel
vibrations from the big piston going up
and down. A twin would be smoother
but likely more expensive. Our testing
was conducted in high heat, and the
cooling fan ran fairly often, even after
the engine was turned off. We never
saw any heat problems aside from
the fan running as it is supposed to.
The Sector’s CVT doesn’t have park.
Reverse, neutral, high and low are
your shift options. When you park
the car, there is a foot-operated parking brake high on the left side of
the machine just under the dash.
The parking brake—a disc on the
Despite moderate suspension travel numbers, the Sector 750 has enough articulation to handle angled ledges and jumbled rocks.
We see a lot of Yamaha influence on the engine design. Our machine started easily
and ran extremely clean at all times.
