SportsmanĀ® ACE is Confidence-Inspiring and Fun to Ride


Minneapolis, January 22, 2014- PolarisĀ® Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles, today announced the company is defining an entirely-new type of off-road vehicle with the introduction of the SportsmanĀ® ACE. The vehicleā€™s architecture is completely new to the industry and features a revolutionary, sit-in chassis that is nimble and comfortable to operate. The design of the new Sportsman ACE provides a confidence-inspired ride, all while being trail-capable, offering an all-new off-road experience.


ā€œThe introduction of the Sportsman ACE is part of our strategy to remain the leader in the powersports marketplace by introducing innovative products that define their categories,ā€ said David Longren, vice president of Polarisā€™ Off-Road Division. ā€œIn creating the Sportsman ACE, we wanted to not only appeal to current off-road enthusiasts, but develop a vehicle that brings new customers to off-road recreation. We accomplished this by coupling an easy-to-use, nimble platform with a confident and secure ride that, together, provides drivers of all experience levels a new way to experience the outdoors.ā€


The revolutionary, new design combines the size and nimble handling of the Sportsman All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV), and the confidence and comfort of the RANGER and RZR side-by-sides, in a rider-centric design with a trail-capable and easily-transportable 48 in/121.9 cm width. A comfortable and confidence-inspiring centralized seating position connects the driver directly with the machine for a new off-road riding experience. To ensure a low center of gravity, Polaris positioned all the major components, including the driver, centralized between the four wheels for an incredibly responsive ride. Along with this low center of gravity, the Sportsman ACE boasts 10.25 in/26.04 cm of ground clearance and 9.5 in/24.1 cm of rear travel due to its fully independent rear suspension (IRS) outfitted with performance, twin tube shocks featuring adjustable preload. Seasoned riders will appreciate the overall vehicle performance, handling and smooth riding suspension, while novice riders will enjoy the secure riding position and the right amount of power to get them down the trail.

My '01 Polaris Sportsman 400 hasn't had one problem in 13 years.

I use it hard all the time. Plowing snow in my 2,000' driveway, skidding logs for my sawmill, elk hunting @ 10,000', Javelina hunting in the desert.

A little tlc, and a new battery, never a hiccup.

Got to finally drive one of the UTV's at a demo days for Arctic Cat for the first time, and boy are they fun. I ride motorcycles and dirt bikes and I could see myself getting into some trouble on one of these things!

Yeah it's hard to explain to someone who has never ridden a UTV how fun they are! The are lightening fast and smooth over the roughest terrain you can imagine.
