Best Value 800: When it comes to getting a powerful, hard working and smooth riding ATV nothing beats the value and performance of the Sportsman 850 on the trail, at work or on the hunt.
78HP ProStar 850 Twin EFI Engine: The High-Output 850 Twin EFI engine with a SOHC cranks out 78 HP. It delivers outstanding acceleration off the line with incredible power to the ground. Add-in a clean fuel burn and smooth power delivery with dual-balanced shafts and you’ve got the power you’re looking for to trail ride and hunt.
High Performance Close Ratio AWD: The high-performance close ratio AWD system is the fastest engaging AWD system available. The instant you need more traction the system engages all four tires to give you forward traction while working with the Electronic Power Steering system for precision handling. The system automatically reverts back to 2WD when you’re back on solid ground.
Engine Braking System: With our unique Engine Braking System (EBS), the engine assists with braking on hills and steep declines. Polaris Dual-Sensing EBS senses both engine RPM and vehicle torque load for smooth controlled descents.
163Kg Combined Rack Capacity: Carry more with a combined front and rear rack capacity of 163.3 kg (108.9 kg Rear, 54.4 kg Front capacity). Sportsman 850 features flat racks and over 100 tie down points.
Lock and Ride Storage System: The Polaris Sportsman Lock and Ride Accessory system allows you to adapt on the fly and accessorize your ATV to tackle any task you throw at it. Sportsman ATVs have hundreds of Lock and Ride accessories to convert your vehicle from a trail machine, to the ultimate work or hunt machine in just seconds. When you need an ATV that can adapt to any task, you need a Sportsman.
Legendary Smooth 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 26 cm of travel leading to a smoother ride and less squat during acceleration.
Dual A-Arm Suspension: 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.
Built for comfort: With the engine rotated 90 degrees, riders enjoy 33% wider floorboards and narrow vehicle width at the knees and ankles. The narrower seat reduces leg fatigue and increases rider comfort.
