2018 Polaris Sportsman 850 Review
2018 Polaris Sportsman 850 Review The 2018 Sportsman 850 is one of the hardest working, the softest riding sport/ATV SUV you can find. Powered by a high-performance, 78 HP, Prostar ® 850 twin EFI engine with a single overhead cam, the rider has some Get-up-and-go while the sportsman propels down the trail. The Sportsman 850 pairs this power with his active rider design to give the owners 30% better lines and a better ride in general. In addition to optimal lines, as well as a powerful engine that is ready no matter the time, the Sportsman 850 features on-Demand all wheel drive for traction you need.
While we look at the suspension and handling, the sporty Polaris ATV has also covered you. The independent rolled-back suspension (IRS) keeps you on all four tires on uneven terrain and makes it easy to drive around narrow corners and remove obstacles up to 11.5″ for comfort and control! Model 850 also includes a new and improved engine brake system (EBS) to keep engine speed drops smooth and constant under all conditions.
Although ATV’s are fun to ride, they often have a job to do as well, and the payload of the athlete and trailer is there to help you tackle the larger jobs and get more done on fewer trips. The 850 has a massive towing capacity of 1,500 lbs. and 575 lbs. Load-carrying capacity. To help with payload, the athlete includes the Lock & Ride ® General-purpose rack system that has up to 360 lbs. As an added bonus, the 850 comes with an integrated winch and plow mounting system for easy installation. And while you are working around your property, you will also have the convenience of 8 gallons of front integrated and back storage to help you carry anything else you need to protect from the items.
