Most Xtreme Performing ATV. It's 99% new and 100% Sportsman. Featuring class-leading power, quicker accelleration, easier steering and the smoothest rider in Sportsman® history.
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 knee and ankles, for a more nimble feel. Floorboards are 33% wider for extra comfort.
14 in. Aluminum Wheels: Largest wheels on a stock ATV. Premium 14 in. cast-aluminum spoke wheels, with 26 in. Carlisle Terrathon tires. (Black stamped steel wheels on camo model.)
Rolled IRS: New rolled IRS features shock with a 4° tipback, and long travel (10.25 in. (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 respons and back shifting. Higher "Low" gear, with speeds up to 39 mph in low range.
Dual A-Arm suspension: New front suspension has longer control arms, class-leading travel (9 in. (22.9 cm)) and geometry that creates anti-kickback steering.
20% larger Radiator: Larger radiator enhances performance, is almost 5 in. higher to keep it out of the mud, and angled 5° steeper for easy cleaning.
Active Descent Control: Provides 4-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 and consistent performance in varying altitudes and temperatures.
