With these new pieces of hardware, the Sportsman presents some impressive figures. It gets 20.8 cm (8.2 inches) suspension travel on the front, 24.1 cm (9.4 inches) on the rear, as well as 34 cm (13.3 inches) of ground clearance.
“The inclusion of Öhlins suspension technology enhances ride quality with optimised damping characteristics and a monotube shock design, providing better response and durability. The Öhlins dampers also allow for quick and simple spring preload adjustment with three different setup options on both the front and rear to suit any riding condition,” said the company in a statement.
The partnership with Öhlins for the development of the special edition extends beyond the said hardware. The Swedish company makes its presence felt through the signature yellow spring color and dedicated decals on the vehicle’s body. Additionally, a new color exclusive to this ATV has been launched – called Turbo Silver, it is sprayed on the Sportman’s plastic surfaces, and is offset by the matte black 14-inch aluminum wheels.
As standard, the ATV comes equipped with electric power steering (EPS), an engine braking system (EBS), integrated LED work light, built-in battery charging port, and a fully sealed ignition switch.
Polaris says the new Sportsman is coming this autumn, which in effect should mean this week. Prices have not yet been announced. Full details on the new ATV as released by the Americans can be found in the press release section below.
