I was outside looking over my new 2014 Sportsman HO 850XP and noticed a manufactures decal located on the right front frame near the upper control arm which reflects "7-29-2013". The sale invoice reflects 2014.

Was I sold a 2013 model vs a 2014 model?

LOL...yeah, they don't wait till January 1 to start making the new year models. All new vehicles be it car, truck, boat, motorcycle, atv, etc. starts production/sales mid year BEFORE the model year. In other words, you could have bought your new 2014 year model 850 in August of 2013. The sticker you are looking at is just the date of manufacture.
