HOW IS IT ON THE ROCKS?
Plush suspension and plenty of
ground clearance take most of the
punishment out of rocky sections of
trail. The Polaris 4WD system makes
the Sportsman tough to get stuck in
rocks, but you have to remember to

more power and comfort and doesn’t
cost a dime more than the 500 did 18

better machine and a better value than
the legendary Sportsman 500. q
