LETS SEE YOU ARE NEW, yep and recently bought a Scrambler have less then a hundred miles on it and you put a plow on a (as you say it) a far better machine, what the heck, that makes you a expert on facts, who the heck blew all this smoke up your ass, new and unfamiliar with the new Quad, and a expert rider and a engineer already Wow we can hardly wait till you have 110 miles on it, you will be saying Polaris engineers are calling you for advice how to build a woods racer
well i will give you this
you are a comic
Im a comic....?
It takes one lap on a multi faceted course with each machine to know the differences between the two. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out.
I don't have a plow on it... I have one on order for when I need it.
No smoke, no mirrors, just good old fashion riding. Civil is my trade actually..... but I am certain Polaris has everything under control, no need to call me.
I will get back to business courses brought up earlier by a fellow member...
Sportsman is the workhorse that has brought Polaris to be placed on the map, no doubt! One of the best machines, if not the best machine in its class.
Then someone mentioned that, Sportsman is the best, why do you think they make only a handful of Scramblers....
Well this doesn't mean the Scrambler is a lesser machine, it merely means that because Polaris is smart, they did their research. They know the market for the Scrambler is small. They also know the market for the Sportsman is huge! They realize the task in charging more for a quad that is similar to a Sportsman wont get many buyers from the Sportsman to make the switch. So what they decided was to target the small percentage of riders who are willing and able to make the switch from sport quad to "Sport/Utility Hybrid", that want the ability to blaze the trails with an MX style suspension and less weight, but yet are capable of mudding and or riding in snow with 4wd.
This is no different than say Ford who offers the F150 (the workhorse), They know the market is small to put the Raptor into production so they don't make near as many. But, and this applies to the Scrambler as well, for them to manufacture them, they have to get a return on their money so the cost escalates to ensure the return is there due to the lack of production qtys.
Simple economics really.
