Polaris Introduces 2009 ATV and RANGER Line Up

Sportsman 800 6x6

Sportsman XP 850
Model year 2009 introduces a new era for Polaris ATVs and RANGER side-by-sides. As the Polaris Sportsman welcomes its one-millionth customer, the ATV line introduces new Sportsman models that are 99 percent new and reinvent the legendary Sportsman ATV with more power and an even better ride. Polaris also is introducing an all-new, ultra-tough Sportsman 800 6x6 Big Boss and a redesign to the high performance Outlaw sport quads. Model year 2009 brings the most significant product launch in Polaris RANGER history with the introduction of the next generation RANGER utility vehicles that work EVEN harder and ride EVEN smoother. The new models include the ruggedly re-designed RANGER 4x4 and RANGER XP and the all-new, heavy duty RANGER HD. The RANGER recreational line up includes improvements to the red-hot RANGER RZR, and the addition of the pure-sport RANGER RZR S.

The Sportsman line with its legendary ride and handling, welcomes the Sportsman XP models as part of its Premium 1-Up Line of Sportsman ATVs. With an even better ride than the classic Sportsman, the Sportsman XPs are built for “Xtreme Performance.” Ninety-nine percent new, the Sportsman XP is available with a new, more-powerful 850 twin EFI Polaris engine or morepowerful, 550 EFI engine. An upgraded suspension including Dual A-Arm front suspension and Rolled IRS in the rear makes the Sportsman XPs’ ride smoother and more controlled, with the highest suspension travel and ground clearance. To further enhance the ride, the Sportsman XPs offer patented, anti-kickback steering to decrease rider fatigue and Polaris also is offering two additional models, the Sportsman 850 XP and 550 XP with electronic power steering, for added steering ease. The models also feature better clutching, highest pulling and towing, and biggest rack capacity. Along with more power and a better ride, the Sportsman XPs have an updated look that includes better ergonomics, new wheels and a better fit and finish.

The “Big Boss” is back and bigger than ever! The new Sportsman 800 6x6 Big Boss has an 800-class engine, six-wheel shaft drive with six-wheel independent rear suspension. Known as the workhorse of the Sportsman line, the 2009 Sportsman 800 6x6 Big Boss provides more power and a better suspension making it the ultimate work ATV.

Polaris’ 2-Up offering is the best selling line of 2-Up ATVs. The most-versatile Sportsman X2 line reintroduces the Sportsman 800 X2 and will continue to offer the Sportsman 500 X2. “The World’s Most Comfortable ATVs,” the Sportsman 800 EFI Touring and Sportsman 500 EFI Touring also will be available for 2009.

The Value Line of 1-Up ATVs include the Sportsman 800 EFI H.O., Sportsman 500 EFI, Sportsman 500 H.O., Sportsman 400 H.O., Sportsman 300 and Trail Boss 330.

“Hitting the one million mark with our Sportsman line is a true testament to the staying power and popularity of our Sportsman models,” said Mike Dougherty, VP and GM of Polaris’ ATV Division. “The addition of the next-generation Sportsman XP models is part of our commitment to continue to innovate our ATVs to meet the ever-changing needs of the ATV enthusiast.”

Outlaw 525 IRS

Polaris’ High Performance Outlaw line gets redesigned for 2009 with updated styling on its three Outlaw models, the Outlaw 525 IRS, Outlaw 525 S and Outlaw 450 MXR. Along with a new look, the models feature a six-pound weight reduction, lowered the center of gravity, adjustable brake lever and aluminum heel guards and bumper. While Polaris improved the appearance of the Outlaw and added key premium features, its performance is retained with the high performance KTM power plants, 5-speed transmission with reverse and hydraulic clutch for smoother engagement. For the consumer that prefers a sportier ATV at a great value, Polaris will continue to offer the Scrambler 500 4x4, Trail Blazer 330 and Phoenix 200. The easy-to-use Phoenix has improved run quality, braking and shifting for 2009.

Youth riders can choose from three different, 4-stroke models from Polaris’ best-selling line of youth ATVs, the Sportsman 90, Outlaw 90 and new Outlaw 50. For 2009, Polaris reduced the shifting effort, improved the durability, ride, turning radius and cold-starting, and added a running tail light on all Youth models.

The “Hardest Working, Smoothest Riding” RANGER side-by-sides will work harder and ride smoother in 2009 with the introduction of the ruggedly re-engineered RANGER 4x4, RANGER XP and RANGER HD. To work harder, the new RANGERs were redesigned with heavy-duty, front end protection including the most-armored front end ever designed for the protection of critical components and a redesigned bumper for added durability. Other hardest working features include 50 percent easier steering, 46 percent more dash storage than the competition, and new, workenabling ergonomics including more seat and leg space, reoriented gas and brake pedal, new angled-back seat, relocated brake lever for operation inside and outside of the vehicle and a redesigned steering wheel with standard tilt steering.

New smoothest riding features for the new RANGERs include an exclusive, Dual A-arm, motion ratio and preload suspension adjustment. The new suspension allows for the maintenance of ground clearance and suspension travel when carrying heavier loads and using heavy accessories, and easy widening of vehicle for recreational purposes. It also reduces feedback into the steering wheel over bumps giving the operator a smoother ride while working.

For heavy-duty work applications, Polaris also is introducing RANGER HD which has the new RANGER features plus an exclusive Self-Leveling Suspension and Variable Assist Power Steering.
To complement the new RANGERs’ exclusive, dual A-arm suspension, the RANGER HD features the first-ever Self-Leveling Suspension on a utility vehicle. The exclusive Nivomat® shocks provide near-full suspension with maximum loads resulting in the highest loaded ground clearance of any side-by-side. The shocks automatically adjust for the weight of the load providing an optimal ride when fully-loaded and prevent rear sag when towing.

For easier steering, RANGER HD also features power steering with exclusive Variable Assist. RANGER HD’s power steering allows for one-finger steering at low speeds and eliminates feedback at high speeds so the operator can work longer and enjoy the ride. The system is perfect for plowing and as well as PURE Polaris’ new BOSS® Lift & Carry System that attaches to the front of the RANGER HD and can lift and carry up to 500 lbs.

Ranger Crew
“The RANGER utility vehicles are characterized by their power, ability to do real work, smooth ride and innovation,” said Matt Homan, GM of Polaris’ Side-by-Side Division. “We took the industry-leading RANGER and made it work harder and ride smoother, creating the hardest working, smoothest riding utility side-by-sides ever built.”
Polaris will continue to offer the six-passenger RANGER CREW with its 700 Twin EFI Polaris engine, 1750 lb. total payload and hardest working, smoothest riding features including exclusive Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), 44 MPH top speed, True All Wheel Drive (AWD) and massive, dual, under-seat storage, and RANGER 6x6 EFI with its monster traction as part of its “Hardest Working, Smoothest Riding” side-by-side offering.

Along with offering a full line of RANGER utility vehicles to fit every customer’s needs, Polaris now has the ultimate line up for the recreational rider. Last model year, Polaris introduced the trail-capable RANGER RZR, the only trail capable side-by-side. With its unmatched, razor-sharp performance, 50-inch width, fastest acceleration, lowest center of gravity for unmatched handling and ability to work, the RANGER RZR became one of the most sought-after side-by-sides. For 2009, along with the RANGER RZR, Polaris will offer the RANGER RZR S for those looking for ultimate sport performance.

The new RANGER RZR S is the ultimate, pure-sport side-by-side built for the desert, dunes and open spaces. The machine delivers unmatched performance using an 800 H.O. EFI Polaris twin engine that churns out a 63 MPH top speed and features Polaris’ exclusive, long travel suspension kit that widens the vehicle to 60-inches wide. Along with premium styling including custom Turbo Silver paint, wide fender flairs, extended rear cab frame supports and 26-inch Maxxis Big-Horn tires, RANGER RZR S has high-performance features not found on other side-by-sides such as Chrome- Moly upper front A-arms and adjustable Fox® performance shocks making it the ultimate sport sideby-side.

For the trail rider, hunter and sport rider who wants razor-sharp performance in a trail capable side-by-side, Polaris is making the red-hot RANGER RZR even hotter for 2009. Improvements for 2009 include smoother transmission shifting, a more-durable shoulder bolster, reduced exhaust noise, covered, under-seat storage, and a new heel pocket to limit motion on the gas pedal for improved low-speed driving.

With the introduction of the new Sportsman ATVs and RANGER side-by-sides, PURE Polaris is offering a full line of accessories for the new models. New Sportsman XP accessories include a variety of Lock & Ride items such as cargo boxes, windshields, brush guards, plows and cargo bags. PURE Polaris has a full line of plows, cabs, brush guards, winch kits and Lock & Ride accessories for the new RANGER models. Unique products for RANGER include the BOSS® Lift & Carry System that can lift and carry 500 lbs. Sport accessories for the Outlaw line include an Outlaw Cooler Rack and FMF Performance Silencer for use with the Outlaw 525 S and 450 MXR. New accessories for RANGER RZR and RANGER RZR S include underbody protection, several brush guards and bumpers, fender flairs, FMF slip-on exhaust, storage and Prospector Pro All-Season tracks.

For riding gear, PURE Polaris is offering a new line of riding apparel including jerseys, overthe-boot and moto pants, and jackets. Along with offering Men’s wear, the new apparel offering also includes Women’s and Youth. PURE Polaris also increased their protective gear offering that includes a new chest protector, safety jacket, boots, helmets and knee pads.
