The EPS is real nice for older guys like me with shoulder problems.

So today is decision day... My last concern about the touring model is the issue with the seat I have read about on here. For those who have the touring model, still worth it or should I opt for the 570 camo version? Still has engine braking and I can get it with EPS at the same price as the touring or go without for 6 to 800 cheaper. Thoughts?

If ur not going to be doing any serious riding 2-up I def wouldn't get it. It may be more stable on really steep hill climbs but a little more throttle and forward lean is going to get it dune also. The 2-up models also high center easier then ur standard wheel based quad. Don't skimp on the eps for the additional cost it is worth the investment.

I don't know what state you are in but at least here in MN and in other states they have outlawed riding 2-up on a machine built for one rider. For what that is worth. At least in MN, the DNR are fanatics about enforcing laws. Heck they even have radar traps set up on our snowmobile trails deep in the woods. You should see how insane they are at boat ramps checking for invasive species.
A few of these value line exceptions are why I would consider a slightly used 550xp Touring which is what I'm thinking for my wife's bike next. As for EPS, at this point in time, I wouldn't even consider a non EPS machine and so resale could be a consideration as well. I work out heavily and have for years and my arms/triceps/back etc are just stronger than most and I still want EPS.
The steering is so easy at low speeds, it's like there is nothing connected to the bars.

I'm betting the height of the back rest is adjustable as it is on the xp version.

Any idea what the height is if it is adjusted to its max height?

Hi Dizz- First, thanks for your service.

I live in North Idaho and I have the 550 xp. We are in the market for another ATV for my wife. This is what he tells me she likes:

- Power steering - Must have-- not so important for me.
- Touring - Must have - I can't stand them
- EFI - Must have for both of us
- APS - Neither one of us has used it on my atv, so for us not necessary
- Cargo Capacity - Though I would need a bigger quad. Hauled out a nice buck on the back rack with no issues
- Dealers - Not sure what part of Idaho you are in , but CDA Polaris and Allsport offer no discounts for active duty. I think the dealer in Sandpoint and Kellogg does.
- 570 - 550 in ice and snow. the 570 is much better than the 550 in the ice and snow on grades. Not sure why, but mine is squirrely. Neighbors 570 solid.
- Steep climbs- both do well. Still no need for the assisted braking. I find brake and body position works better.

Good luck and thank again for your service!!!

APS? Not sure what that one is. I think for my first ATV the 570 touring is going to be the best match. I think were I to only think about hunting I would go a different way. One of my concerns is the back seat rest getting in the way of cargo, I.e. A Mule deer. but for the rest of the year I think being able to safely and "legally" carry my kids and wife will be more important. Anybody have thoughts on cargo space with touring? K570 Question vs....-uploadfromtaptalk1395151651286.jpg can they do this?
