Features

Features

Collapse
Anti-Kickback Steering: Takes the bite out of rocks, ruts, and stumps because it has the longest A-arms and largest-diameter wheels on the market, so we could move the steering axis to near the neutral center of the tire.
New Ergonomics: Longitudinally mounted engine allows XP to be narrower at the knees and ankles, for a more nimble feel. Floorboards are 33 percent wider for extra comfort.
14 inch Aluminum Wheels: Largest wheels on a stock ATV. Preminum 14 inch cast-aluminum spoke wheels, with 26 inch Carlisle Terrathon tires. (Black stamped steel wheels on camo model.)
Rolled IRS: New rolled IRS features shocks with a 4 degree tip-back, and long travel (10.25 inch / 26 cm) for the smoothest Sportsman ride ever.
On-Demand AWDS: Automatically engages when the rider needs more forward traction, delivering full torque to all four wheels. Reverts to 2WD when AWD is no longer needed.
NEW Digital Instrumentation: Digital speedometer, tachometer, odometer, two trip meters, hour meter, fuel gauge, clock and service indicators.
New Roller Clutch: New roller-driven clutch reduces friction and provides smoother, faster clutch response and back shifting. Higher “Low” gear, with speeds up to 39 miles per hour in low range.
Dual A-Arm Suspension: New front suspension has longer control arms, class-leading travel (9 inch / 22.9 cm) and geometry that creates anti-kickback steering.
20 Percent Larger Radiator: Larger radiator enhances performance, is almost five inches higher to keep it out of the mud, and angled five degrees steeper for easy cleaning.
Active Decent Control (ADC): Provides four-wheel braking when vehicle is in AWD, works together with Sportsman’s Engine Braking System (EBS) to give you optimum control when moving down hills.
550 EFI Engine: Most powerful 500-class engine in Sportsman history. 550 cc Single, rubber-mounted for low vibration, with EFI for fast starts and consistent performance in varying altitudes and temperatures.
