Polaris Introduces Revolutionary New Single Seat Off-Road Vehicle - The Sportsman ACE



Sportsman® ACE is Confidence-Inspiring and Fun to Ride

Minneapolis, January 22, 2014- Polaris® 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 Sportsman® ACE. The vehicle’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.

“The 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,” said David Longren, vice president of Polaris’ Off-Road Division. “In 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.”

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.

That is the funniest thing I have ever seen.
That is not suppose to compete in the same class as my Revolt, right?
"Create a whole new class of vehicle"
I can not stop laughing when I look at it. Make it stop, please!!!!!!!!

I don't think they will be very popular in the dunes. Its a big quad with a roll-cage.

They are funny looking.
I do not think they will sell very well.
Maybe they will sell a few to children's market...DOH!

Don't get me wrong, I like Polaris's I have a 2013 Ranger Crew and a lot of my friends have the RZR XP 900's, but this single seater that is so small with hardly any power..."Comon Man"!
They should have Resurrected the Revolt with a Polaris twist & 1000 motor, how fun would that be.

It's not what I expected from Polaris as a first single but I can see their targeted market.
If I wanted a hunting or back country ride that had more hauling capability & element protection & safety than that of a quad. I would seriously consider it.
