The Polaris All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are at DefExpo again, probably making the show cooler than Auto Expo, also being held at the same time at Greater Noida.
Polaris is displaying the RZR®SW, the Sportsman® MV 850 and the Widetrak LX (Snowmobile).
Here’s how the company describes them:
Side by Side: The RZR® SW comes with a powerful 800cc twin EFI engine which cranks out 55HP and a top speed of 109 KPH. An on-demand All Wheel Drive (AWD) engages all four tires when the rear wheel slips and forward traction is required, making it ideal for slippery and hard-to-maneuver terrain.
ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle): The Sportsman® MV comes with a powerful 850cc 4-stroke SOHC Twin Cylinder Gas Engine that cranks out 77 hp. It has the capacity to carry 91 kg of gear on the front rack and up to 181 kg of gear on the back. This makes it the only ATV in the world with the highest rack capacity.
Snowmobile: The Widetrak LX is purpose-built to tow, haul and get to where the work needs to be done. Full featured sleds with Hi-Low transmissions, cargo racks, reverse and of course, like the name says, an extra wide track — 20″ of flotation to be exact.
You know you want one.
Pankaj Dubey, Managing Director, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd., said in a company statement, “RZR®S 800 model, in India is currently being used by the Gujarat Police and we have received very positive feedback regarding the utility of our vehicles.”
The company also said it has donated ‘one Sportsman® Big Boss 6X6 800, one Sportsman® 550 Hunter EPS, one RZR® S 800 EFI and two Ranger® 900 Diesel’ to the government of Uttarakhand.
