After seeing a need in the market for a machine that seamlessly pairs performance with affordability, Polaris has introduced the new RZR XP Turbo S Velocity and RZR XP 4 Turbo S Velocity. At 72 inches wide, the Velocity models will come with two and four seats, respectively, and a price tag of $25,399 and $28,399.

Though the Velocity’s looks are reminiscent of the existing RZR XP Turbo S models, there are several upgrades made in the interest of performance and strength. Each Velocity model will be built with stronger axels, a reinforced chassis, high-clearance control arms, and a stronger drive system that Polaris asserts is 3x stronger than the system in the standard XP Turbo S models. This is all in addition to new, 3-inch aluminum Walker Evans Velocity Shocks that will be featured on every Velocity machine.

The changes Polaris is making with the Velocity are impressive, but they aren’t discrediting the value of the original XP Turbo S models. The new Velocity machines will still have the 168 horsepower, four-point harnesses, and 32-inch stock tires that made their predecessor so popular.

Along with the performance enhancements, Polaris will also be introducing some new colorways to their lineup. The new Velocity will be available in an all-new Titanium Metallic, and that scheme will become available for all XP Turbo S and XP 4 Turbo S models as well. The new Velocity machines and new colors will be shipped to Polaris dealers late January.

Polaris Press Release

Polaris RZR®,the world’s #1 selling sports performance side-by-side lineup, introduced two new machines today with the 72-inch RZR XP®Turbo S Velocity and 72-inch RZR XP® 4 Turbo S Velocity. At $25,399 and $28,399, respectively, the new two- and four-seat Velocity models deliver an unmatched combination of performance and value amongst the 72-inch side-by-side segment.

Like the performance-leading 72-inch RZR XP® Turbo S and 72-inch RZR XP® 4 Turbo S, the new Velocity models are built with stronger axles, high-clearance control arms, a three-times stronger drive system, a reinforced chassis and a more robust drivetrain with improved cooling; these machines are designed to dominate any terrain. Additionally, the Velocity models maintain the same features of the RZR XP Turbo S that make it a beast – 168 horsepower, a 72-inch stance, 32-inch ITP Coyotes, 16 inches of ground clearance, and four-point harnesses.

Each new model will feature race-ready 3.0-inch aluminum Walker Evans Velocity Shocks with high- and low-speed compression adjustment. Drivers will experience a plush ride through the small chop and increased stability through high-speed whoops. And, to create the best value within the 72-inch vehicle landscape, each Velocity model received a simplified fit and finish when compared with the premium offerings.

“We designed the Velocity models in response to drivers seeking the ultimate combination of performance and value,” said Kyle Duea, Vice President of ORV Marketing for Polaris Industries. “Along with this new offering, we’re excited to add an additional paint scheme to the current XP Turbo S and XP 4 Turbo S lineup for a wider range of styles and designs.”

As is standard in all category-leading RZR models, Polaris pushed the limits of engineering when designing the Velocity models. The result – high-performance vehicles capable of taking on the most demanding terrains at a higher value price point.

The RZR XP Turbo S Velocity models also feature 25 percent more assist in power steering and a better feel at high speeds. Additionally, each Velocity model keeps the driver focused on effortlessly maneuvering through the terrain, without forcing on the wheel. Recalibrated throttle mapping gives the driver more immediate and improved control, while the redesigned clutch box allows for better air flow and decreased belt temperatures.

The new XP Turbo S Velocity and XP 4 Turbo S Velocity will be available in Titanium Metallic. The RZR XP Turbo S and XP 4 Turbo S in this new paint scheme, as well as both Velocity models, will begin shipping to Polaris dealers late January. XP Turbo S Velocity and XP 4 Turbo S Velocity will be available in Canadian dealers at $30,999 and $34,499, respectively.
