Polaris Sportsman All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) are known as the hardest working, smoothest riding ATVs on the market. New to the Premium Line for 2015, and leading the Big Bore category in power and performance, are the Sportsman XP 1000 and Sportsman Touring XP 1000.
Based on the revolutionary XP chassis, the Sportsman XP 1000 and Sportsman Touring XP 1000 offer the smoothest, most-refined ride in the industry coupled with the highest performance in their classes.
The vehicles’ 88 horsepower ProStar single overhead cam 1000 twin engine is based upon the proven 850 twin. A new high-performance close-ratio, On-Demand, true AWD system provides improved traction while the EPS makes it easier to muscle over anything that stands in the way.
For more controlled descents, the units also feature Polaris’ Engine Braking System (EBS) with Active Descent Control (ADC) to control downhill braking for optimal control and smooth, even deceleration to all four wheels.
For a smoother ride on the Sportsman Touring XP 1000, the unit features an improved driver and passenger seat with more contour and bolstering for increased passenger comfort and security.
To work harder, the units feature the highest pulling and towing power at 1,500 lbs./680.4 kg and biggest rack capacity at 120 lbs./54.4 kg front and 240 lbs./108.9 kg. rear with a total of 100 built-in, tie-down points to ensure plenty of room to carry extra cargo.
The units also feature a Polaris HD 2500 lb/1133 kg winch and plow accessory integration to get the job done quicker and easier, and a new headlight pod with improved visibility to instrumentation for easier operation.
The Sportsman XP 1000 will join Polaris’ Premium ATV line, and will be available in Black Pearl Metallic Paint and Polaris Pursuit Camo. The Sportsman Touring XP 1000 will be available in Bronze Mist Paint and joins Polaris’ Premium 2-Up ATV offering.
