The 500 could do wheelies also so its not all that surprising.

It definately has a nicer sounding exhaust than the 500!!

I gotta admit, for those looking for a casual trail machine, hunting, run about atv, etc, these are going to be hard to beat. I saw a few more vids on youtube of them....for the price, it looks like Polaris has hit a home run with this

I guarantee, they will outsell the 550Xp with these. So glad to see the evolution of the classic sportsman.

How do y'all think it will do as a mud machine? I have seen a ton of 500HO with 30" tires and really not struggling.

I would be more interested to see a wheely pulled with the driver sitting on the seat. My grandson has a 125 yamaha and when dropping my weight on the back it will do wheelys all day.

I cant get the front up on my 550 for nothing. I think it has to do with the stock tires

Mine 850 would just roast the back tires with stock tires. But with the grippers i can stand it up, even without the clutch kit yet.

I tried it a couple times. But i have to agree with will, wheelies don't float my boat.

I gotta ask, what is the obsession with wheelies??


Thanks,

Obsession ? Not me, but wheelies are fun. Besides it's cool to be able to lift the front end over stuff. I ride an Outlaw and it helps to be able to wheelie over water puddles so I don't get my tenny runners all wet.

^ LOL

I agree, Polaris should make a killing on the 570's. I give them kudo's for keeping new ATV's at a more affordable price.

I've only ever wheelied my 800 once.... just to see if it could do it (and show the wife it could do it :D). And for the record, it did it with ease!! Personally, from that point on... I don't need to beat on it like that!


What I'm really waiting to see is two "good-ol red neck boys" make a Stock Sportsman 2013 500 vs. 2014 570 video.... want to see a side by side / head to head shoot out drag race and tug of war!!!

Please post up if you've seen one!
