Large struts operate the upper A-arms on the unusual double-A-arm
front suspension. A front sway bar fights body roll.
The engine moves with the swingarm and rear axle, which gives the
shocks plenty of weight to control. Even so, the suspension works well
for this kind of machine.
HOW DOES THE SUSPENSION WORK?
It’s a little bouncy, but it handles
bumps well. The Ace 150’s suspension
keeps the machine comfortable
and in control on ruts and rocks,
and small jumps aren’t out of the
question. The Ace 150 has an inch
more rear travel than the RZR 170.
HOW DOES IT HANDLE?
Just the way you’d want a learner’s
machine to, with plenty of stability and
predictability. The Ace 150 is 48 inches
wide, just like the RZR 170, and its low,
centered seating position makes it feel
securely stuck to the ground around
turns and on uneven terrain. Steering
effort is a little higher than we expected
on a small 2WD machine, but there’s
almost no harsh feedback through the
steering from bumps, which is nice.
HOW IS IT FOR HILLS?
It makes the grade. In its full-
power setting, the 150 has enough
power to tackle hills on average
trails. There’s no engine braking
feature, but the transmission stays
engaged momentarily when you
lift off the throttle. The strong
hydraulic front and rear disc
brakes slow the machine easily.
HOW IS IT FOR MUD AND WATER?
You can have some fun splashing
around, but don’t follow any big RZRs
into deep, rutted crossings. The Ace
150’s engine and transmission intakes
are above the rear tires, but the
engine-fan intake and the transmission
exhaust are several inches lower.
Thanks to its taller tires, the 150 has
more ground clearance than the RZR
170, but ground clearance at the rear
sprocket is only about 6 inches.
HOW ARE THE DETAILS?
Impressive. For safety, the Ace 150
comes with a youth helmet, safety flag
and daytime running lights. The seat
slides to adjust, and the steering wheel
has four tilt settings. The range selector
The Ace 150’s fun power and sure, stable handling give young drivers the real UTV excitement
they want with the safety parents want.
Fuse position sets the speed limiter to 10, 15,
22 or, our favorite, 29 mph.
