Any idea what the height is if it is adjusted to its max height?
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? K can they do this?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!!!
Thanks for your reply. I'm getting mine today and am looking forward to it. Glad to know there is some adjustment to the rear seat back rest also. I agree with you on this machine being a great value.Dizz1812-I just bought the Bright White 570 Touring on Saturday and LOVE IT!. The engine braking is so extreme I honestly haven't even touched the brakes much at all. With my wife and I on it, it steers easily in deep rocks or hard surfaces (we're well over 500lbs combined). The power is tremendous and smooth even here where we live at almost 5000 feet. The top of the backrest is around shoulder height on me (5'8") but of course is adjustable. I suppose you could strap to it, but I also believe that you can unbolt it from the frame if you wish (although I haven't tried it yet) which would give you full use of the rear rack. With the back rest on, you really only have the sides of the rear rack available. I am going to buy the ATV hitch carrier rack from Harbor Freight to use when we go on family trips, it may be a good choice for hunting trips as well. The rear rack is unfortunately not the best design with the addition of the backrest on the touring. However, I cannot tell you how much I love the machine overall. I don't think there is a better value on the market (for the money) and I looked at everything believe me. Good Luck!!
