    Standard Features

    Hardest Working
     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.  
     Paint  
        5-layer metallic automotive-style finish is 9 times more scratch-resistant than standard plastic  
     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 360 lbs. on racks, plus the ability to accessorize in seconds with the Lock & Ride cargo system.  
     Huge Rack Capacity  
        Lock & Ride front and rear racks can carry an industry-leading combined 360 lbs. and boast 100 tie-down points on strong, rust-free composite racks. Letting you carry all of your gear securely and easily.  
    Smoothest Riding
     Electronic Power Steering (EPS)  
        The smoothest, most responsive power steering available, with 30 percent more power assist than the leading competitor, plus Variable Assist for easier steering at lower speeds. Our EPS let's you ride all day with less fatigue from steering.  
     Anti-kickback Steering  
        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.  
     Ergonomics for your Comfort  
        With the engine rotated 90 degrees, riders enjoy 33 percent wider floorboards and narrow vehicle width at the knees and ankles. The narrower seat reduces leg fatigue and increases rider comfort.  
     Class-leading 12 in. Ground Clearance  
        With 12 in. of ground clearance, clear bigger rocks, navigate deeper ruts, and go where other ATVs can't.  
     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.  
    More Features
     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 rack, it's easily accessible and easier to clean.  
     Carlisle 489 II tires are standard and give you more traction to the ground, improved cornering, and increased durability out on the trail.  
     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.
