Purchased our two 550's used a few years back vs. getting new 570's for a number of reasons...

The 570 Polaris designed engine was new at the time...wanted to give them a few years to work out the kinks
Front rack capacity higher in the 550, 120 lbs to 90 lbs
Ground clearance higher in the 550
Payload capacity higher in the 550
Fuel tank bigger in the 550
Dual A-Arm front and rear suspension in the 550 vs. strut in the 570
Towing capacity higher in the 550
Bigger standard tires on the 550
Liked the digital spedo / guage cluster vs. analog of the 570

I have been very happy with my purchase...800 miles on the wife's Black Stealth, 1,110 miles on my Browning Edition. I'm sure the 570's are wonderful machines.

Nice to see Polaris getting back to dual a-arm front suspension, although only with higher trim/model. Spec wise my 2013's still beat the new 2021's in many areas.

The price is in line with every other Japanese/Domestic quad out there, no Chinese garbage included.

The last couple of years, Polaris made the full digital cluster to all value machines. If you look at what they have done to the 2021’s, you are getting a ton of machine for the momey.

My 2012 400HO was $5,499 before tax, I was happy with that. I do not expect Polaris to maintain that price point and make improvements.

I would rather have a 2021 at the new price, than an old worn out design (body style) at a lower price.

A 2021 Premium 570 is $800 cheaper than the 2020 Premium 570. In 2020 You could flip a coin and buy a base 850 or a 570:premium, the price adjustment is a nice touch.

I wish they had of put the 570 in that XP Chassis, it has lots of advantages.

There are now at least 7 different 570's to choose from.

What was MSRP on a base model back in 2015? I know mine was listed under $5000. Its now $7000. Seems like they are pricing themselves out of the "value line" market.

I like my 570 but wouldn't buy another at these prices.
A 2014 Base Sportsman 570 was $6499.00 MSRP. Sure most of us didn’t pay that, my 2017 I got for $5400.00. So MSRP has gone up $500 in 7 years, but they’ve also improved it year by year.

Comparing a MSRP $9500 2013 Polaris Sportsman 550 EPS Browning Limited Edition to a MSRP $6500 Base Sportsman 570 EFI is apples to oranges. A more fair comparison would be to a 2015 MSRP $8500 Sportsman 570 SP(1st year)that’s still 1K less!

Yes, it's a bit of apples and oranges...but at the time of purchase it was more apples to apples to me. Picked up the Browning with 30 hours / 300 miles on the odometer for $6k. The wife's Black Stealth had 29 hours, under 300 miles and was a little more $$$. Not kidding...it looked BRAND NEW!

For me it was a no-brainer.

Young, single guy owned the Browning previous...I think he just got bored with it. Was also in great shape, but not as great as the Black Stealth...

Great discussion here, and nice rides gents! I am in the market for a Sportsman 570, and with the improvements on the 2021, I am thinking that is the direction to go in. Do we have a general idea of when Polaris will be issuing rebates for the 2021's? I know there is a $500 rebate for the 2020's. Local dealership took another $300 off MSRP for a 2020. For $800, I am thinking it's worth waiting for the 2021 and it's improvements.

I agree completely! I sold my 400HO with intentions of buying a base 850, but with all of the improvements, a 570 Premium Trail will work perfectly.

only rebates youl see is on 2020s. they'll be minimal at best due to the shortage on units/inventory plus the demand on units. as for 2021s you won't see any rebates if any until the holidays.

Hey,

not too much, how about you? Last summer I was up north, had a chance to ride my friend‘s 16 570EPS for a day. Let me tell ya, that machine impressed me, the 570, efi, and EPS really made a difference.

I sold my 400HO in Msy, with the ATV shortage, it sold fast. It had 6,400km/4,000 miles on it and no breakdowns.

im thinking either October or next spring. Thinking 570 Premium Trail, the arched a-arms got my attention.
