Latest Polaris Sportsman ATV brings a new level of power
The well-known Polaris Sportsman 500 has been the line's flagship since 1996. Now Polaris claims to have taken what is the best-selling 4x4 ATV of all time by making it better with the launch of the Sportsman 570.
The addition of electronic fuel injection takes the Sportsman to a new level with an additional 20pc power. There is also enhanced comfort and a number of new features, but the new Sportsman is still keenly priced in its class.
Polaris will offer two models, the Sportsman 570 Forest, which comes with a winch, mirrors and lights, and the 570 EPS with power steering.
At the heart of the Sportsman 570 models are the new liquid-cooled engines delivering smooth, efficient power for work and recreation. The engine features dual overhead cams and four valves, together with the automotive style electronic fuel injection.
The engine also lives up to the Sportsman's well-earned reputation as a workhorse by offering 555kg of towing capacity.
With the new engine now transversely mounted, Polaris claims ATV ergonomics have also been greatly improved for added comfort.
The front of the seat and side panels have been narrowed by over three inches and the floorboards have deeper heel pockets to allow riders to move their feet back an additional two inches.
The width between the rider's feet has been reduced by one inch, with the result that mounting and dismounting the ATV is much easier, with improved mobility while riding.
