The term is “economy of scale”. What it means to a manufacturer like Honda, Kawasaki, or Can-Am is getting the most out of their design, tooling, and testing dollars by using the same parts on as many different models as possible. In the ATV world no manufacturer takes that concept to heart more than Polaris. It’s a good bet that if you own any given Polaris ATV or Side x Side there will be a bunch of parts that are found on several other models as well.

Trail & Race Tested - A Checkered Past

I’ve often questioned the logic in large displacement ATVs - especially ones close to or north of 700lbs. on the scale.  Yeah, we all like to have bragging rights when it comes to having the most horsepower, but when does it just become too much of a good thing?  When Polaris released their Scrambler 1000, it was no exception to those thoughts.  And even though initial ride impressions were that it was extremely nimble and forgiving for a one-liter titan of an ATV, it was still a heavy, extremely fast monster.

The Polaris ACE marked a different direction in the development of Side x Sides. The ACE wasn’t exactly an ATV, although it did appear to be the offspring of a mating between the RZR 570 and a Sportsman ATV. It wasn’t exactly a Side x Side either; even though it has a steering wheel, roll cage, and a bucket seat. One thing we knew for sure is that we needed to spend more time on, or maybe we should say “in” it.

When a weekend off-road event draws more people than almost all NBA teams, it’s clearly something special. After last year’s record turnout at the wildly popular Polaris Camp RZR event held at Tennessee’s Brimstone Recreation, promoters Mark Love, his daughter Erika, and the Polaris team really mashed the throttle to the floor for an even bigger and better event this year. Goal achieved!

When Polaris introduced the ACE platform a year and a half ago, we knew it was only a matter of time before they would follow it up with additional single seat models. It wasn’t a long wait. Later in the year came the ACE 570, and most recently they’ve unleashed the new ACE 900 SP.
