1-UP AND 2-UP VERSATILITY IN SECONDS
Switches from work to play in seconds. Rear dump box features a 400-lb. capacity and, in three easy steps, goes from 1-up work mode to 2-up play mode in less than 10 seconds.
NEW! PASSENGER SEAT DESIGN
We added 21% more seat foam for a total of 4" of seat padding, to increase passenger comfort on those long rides.
HUGE FRONT STORAGE
Huge Front Storage Box With 8.2-Gallon Storage Capacity.
ON-DEMAND TRUE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE (AWD)
WITH VERSATRAC TURF MODE
True AWD keeps you moving, automatically engaging all four wheels when you need more forward traction and reverting back to 2WD when you don't. When in 2WD, the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch unlocks the rear differential for easier, tighter turns to minimize damage to sensitive terrain.
Placing the steering axis near the neutral center of the tire and having the long Dual A-Arm Front Suspension dramatically reduces kickback and minimizes rider fatigue that comes with jolts to the handlebars from trail and ground obstacles.
ACTIVE DESCENT CONTROL (ADC) AND ENGINE BRAKING SYSTEM (EBS)
Work together to monitor and control downhill braking to give you optimum control and smooth, even deceleration during descents.
ROLLED INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION IRS
With 10.25" of suspension travel, our proven Rolled IRS is angled rearward to keep the ride smooth for you and your passenger and reduce squat while accelerating
