ATV Reviews: Polaris RZR 1000
Harvey’s ATV reviews the Polaris RZR XP 1000, one of the most popular ATVs on the market. Strap in for a full rundown on the features and handling of this high-performance machine.
A brief history of the Polaris RZR 1000
The first RZR was a 2008 model, the RZR 800, (technically released in 2007) as a speedy sub-model of Polaris’s classic workhorse UTV. Faster and lighter than other side-by-side UTVs of the time, the RZR sparked a revolution in the ATV market. Subsequent models would strive for even more agility, more power, and more versatility.
It wasn’t until 2014 that Polaris released the RZR XP 1000, a 100 HP beast of a side-by-side that had a little of everything: a high powered engine, agile handling, sturdy suspension, easy maintenance, and an impressive cab interior. Well rounded and reasonably priced, there was something to appeal to every type of rider. Available in both two seat and four seat models, the RZR 1000 quickly became a market leader.
Polaris RZR XP 1000 Vs. RZR S 1000
As the S was only 60” wide, riders were able to handle tighter trails and corners with greater ease than the 64” XP 1000.
The S 1000’s lower ground clearance (12” compared to the XP’s 14”) and reduced HorsePower, however, makes tougher terrains difficult to traverse.
