2017 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 Review



Brutally powerful ATV gets refined

From the start the Polaris Sportsman has been a force to be reckoned with, but in the model year 2017 the new Sportsman XP 1000 will make any Polaris loyal drool.

In a brief visit to the mountains of Great Falls, Mont., we had the opportunity to get under the bars of this machine for a few hours. The looks are inspiring and the feel of the powerful 952cc fuel injected engine is empowering to say the least. It was a chance encounter on a long trail that allowed us to get more familiar with the ride that Polaris says is RAD! That is short for Rider Active Design and here is how it played out for us.

Knowing the biggest displacement ATV produced by Polaris would get some much due attention, it was our goal to not only search out the key features but to try and test, if only briefly, each one. The power delivery of the Sportsman’s engine can now be modulated in three different fashions. This is what Polaris refers to as its tri-mode throttle control. Most will never realize that this is also a throttle-by-wire system either…surprise!
