NOTHING RIDES LIKE THE NEW
SPORTSMAN XP.
We took our already-legendary Sportsman and reevaluated,
retooled, and reengineered everything from top to bottom,
front to back. It’s 99% new and sets new standards for
Xtreme Performance, ride and handling.
AVAILABLE
ELECTRONIC
POWER STEERING
While our competitors were rushing to offer power steering,
we made sure that ours could deliver the same level of
Xtreme Performance as the new Sportsman XP. And
with 30% more power assist than the competitors have,
plus Variable Assist for easier steering effort at lower
speeds and more responsiveness at higher speeds, it’s
the best power steering on the market. Hands down.
(Polaris EPS also features an exclusive, long-lasting
brushless motor for more torque and less current draw
and sealed, self-contained, one-piece construction for
long-term reliability.)

MOST INTELLIGENT AWD
The Polaris exclusive On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system reacts
automatically so you don’t have to, engaging all four wheels when you need more
forward traction and reverting back to 2WD when you don’t. Other ATVs use
limited-slip, engaging only three wheels.
SUPERIOR ERGONOMICS
By rotating the engine 90 degrees, we were able to widen the floorboards
by 33%, as well as make the machine 8.25 cms narrower at the knees
and 12.7 cms narrower at the ankles, reducing leg fatigue and giving you
a more nimble, sporty feel.

WARNING! ATVs can be hazardous to operate. For your safety, always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing and never carry passengers unless the adult ATV has been designed by the manufacturer
specifically for that purpose. Polaris adult models are for riders aged 16 and older. Polaris youth models of 90cc are for riders aged 12 and older. Polaris youth models of 50cc are for riders aged 6 or older. Be sure to take
a safety training course. For safety training contact Stay Upright, www.stayupright.com.au. Never ride on public roads, and always avoid paved surfaces. Never engage in stunt driving. Riding and alcohol/drugs don’t mix.
Avoid excessive speeds. Be particularly careful on difficult terrain. Remember, ATV riding is more fun when you play by the rules. All ATVs shown in action photography were ridden by professional riders in designated
off-road areas. Local laws vary. Please check your local laws before riding on trails. All pricing, specifications, claims, and information contained in this brochure are based upon current knowledge and printed competitive
