As if the Polaris RZR and RZR-S hadn’t made a big enough impression in the side by side marketplace, the boys in Minnesota have created even more cold sweats for the competition with the intro of the new RZR XP 900.
This new-generation Razor is powered by an expanded version of the fuel-injected XP 850 ATV mill with displacement bumped up to 875ccs.
This engine is a 180-degree firing DOHC twin mounted transversely in like fashion to Polaris’ XP ATVs.
Polaris claims this new powerplant makes an amazing 88-horsepower – certainly top-of-the heap power for any 4-wheeler…in any class.
We can’t help but think this mill is a direct response to Arctic Cat and Can-Am’s brags about having the most power in the SxS market with their 1000cc powered Prowlers and Commanders.
For Polaris, this engine in this chassis is without doubt the most volatile combination money can buy without going to the aftermarket.
