Standard Features

Hardest Working
 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.  
 On-demand True All Wheel Drive 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.  
 Unrivaled 550 Engine  
    The liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 550 engine delivers smooth, efficient power and plenty of it for working, hunting and trail riding.  
 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 (less than 15 mph).  
 Maximum Power and Functionality  
    With the power to tow 1,500 lbs. and carry a total of 120 lbs. on the front rack and 400 lbs. in the box, plus the ability to accessorize in seconds with the Lock & Ride cargo system.  
 Standard Front Storage  
    Huge front storage box with 8.2 gal. storage capacity let's you pack all your gear for those long rides, and keep it secure and out of the elements.  
 High Capacity, High-mounted Radiator  
    The radiator is raised high to keep it out of the mud. Its large surface area provides more cooling capacity to your machine. And with removable Lock & Ride® front box, it's easily accessible and easier to clean.  
Smoothest Riding
 Legendary Smooth Rolled IRS  
    Years of innovation and relentless tuning have refined the ride to a level unmatched in the industry. Rolled Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) angles the shocks rearward for 10.25 in. of travel leading to a smoother ride and less squat during acceleration.  
 Anti-kickback Steering  
    Placing the steering axis near the neutral center of the tire and having the long dual A-arm 9 in. front suspension travel dramatically reduces kickback and minimizes rider fatigue that comes with jolts to the handlebars from trail and ground obstacle.  
 Passenger Seat Comfort  
    4 in. of seat padding, to increase passenger comfort on those long rides.  
More Features
 Two lights are located in the front bumper and one mounted in the handlebar pod. Maximize your lighting with the ability to have all three on at once for 150W of power.
