Standard Features

Hardest Working
 New! Integrated Front Storage  
    The most integrated storage of any ATV. The 6.5 gal. capacity lets you stow-away loads of gear and still have access to it, even with items tied to the deck.  
 On-demand True All Wheel Drive  
    Still the best automatic 4 x 4 system out there, the AWD engages all four tires when the rear wheels slip and you need more forward traction. Reverts back to 2WD when you don’t.  
 Proven Powerplant and Chassis  
    We took our Sportsman 500 H.O. — the best-selling automatic 4 x 4 ATV of all time — and gave it a longer wheelbase and a plush passenger seat to create a value-packed, 2-up touring machine.  
 Raised Radiator Placement  
    Radiator is mounted 3 in. higher in the chassis an angled rearward to keep it out of mud and you on the trail longer.  
Smoothest Riding
 Aggressive Design with Lock & Ride  
    An aggressive looking body style gives the Sportsman an intimidating look and enhanced sight lines for the driver. The Lock & Ride composite front rack system and matching rear rack make it easy to carry gear.  
 Passenger Seat Comfort  
    The ultra-comfortable seat and backrest are fully padded and contoured for full support, with a slightly raised position so you can see down the trail.  
 Rolled Independent Rear Suspension (IRS)  
    Starting with 8.75 in. 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.  
 Engine Braking System (EBS)  
    Works to monitor and control downhill braking to give you optimum control and smooth, even deceleration during descents.
