In 2007, Polaris introduced the RZR 800, which revolutionized the sport UTV market by giving us the first pure recreational sport UTV designed to fit OHV trails with 50-inch width restrictions. This year, Polaris again went big with the release of 20 new models! Obsessed with purpose-driven innovation, Polaris has completely revamped the RZR 800 with more power and better ergonomics, showing that they are listening to customers and are doing everything they can to deliver the best performance and off-roading experience possible.

2015 RZR S 900 EPS on a Trail

Introducing the 2015 RZR 900 and RZR S 900

This new re-engineered 900cc class boasts a 40% increase in power over the former RZR 800 thanks to an all new 875cc ProStar™ engine, which puts out an impressive 75HP. Each model is optionally equipped with EPS and comes standard with factory-installed doors that enhance comfort, style and protection. Both machines ride on a new, longer chassis to help smooth out the riding experience. The improved suspension setup features dual rate springs which offer increased suspension travel and allow the RZRs to be equipped stock with bigger tires for even more usable ground clearance. Polaris rounds out the performance upgrades with high performance on-demand AWD, the same technology already found in the RZR XP 1000.

Step inside the cockpit and you will find yourself sitting with increased legroom and comfort-improved bucket seats that feature increased bolstering and better cushioning, providing premium comfort for every ride. Each model also features an adjustable seat and tilt wheel steering to better fit your driving preferences. Simple yet well thought-out improvements, like the all new-removable floor drains which make it easier to clean out your machine after a ride, truly show that Polaris is hyper-focused on setting the bar in this industry.

Take a detailed look at what each model has to offer!

Whole New Approach to 50-inch Trail Riding

The RZR 900 comes with more power and better suspension, taking trail-width-restricted riding to new heights. All of this power required upgrades to the suspension for a smoother, more agile driving experience and up to 11″ of ground clearance. To optimize corning abilities, the new chassis design gives an additional three inches of track width while still keeping the overall machine width at 50″.

New Vision on RZR S 900

The updated RZR S 900 comes with an impressive power-to-weight ratio (6.2) and is able to hit 40 mph from zero in just a little more than four seconds. The 60-inch width still keeps the RZR S 900 on many trails while enhancing its cornering ability compared to the narrower RZR 900, and it adds 1.3 inches of track width compared to the 2014 RZR S 800. It has 26-inch tires, Fox Performance Series 2.0 Podium X shocks and over a foot of ground clearance. It also sports improved steering with a remarkably tight turning radius.
