First up for a reworking in 2010 was the popular Polaris Sportsman Touring series.
For MY10 the Touring moniker gets an XP injection using a stretched XP chassis with 550 or 850 power, EPS power steering and a very unique, separately suspended rear passenger seat utilizing a mountain bike-style coilover shock under the seat frame.
The all-new XP Touring gives riders distinct, tangible advantages over the former design not to mention a significant power boost with either of the new XP longitudinally mounted motors.
The second 2-up vehicle moving to the XP chassis is the X-2, Polaris’s popular 2-up convertible ATV.
The X-2 XP is now available only with 550 power and does not include EPS steering.
We suspect previous 800 X-2 buyers will be begging for XP 850 power and EPS but, all things considered, this is one sweet package for 2010.
