It's only 12 more HP gentlemen. No need to trade in your 13 scramblers and lose your shirt on the deal. Throw some cold water over your faces and calm down.
Well yea, 15.6 % more HP.... a very sizable increase and sure to be quite noticeable. In the ATV Rider video the front wheels come right up from a stop.Lol. That's funny. But it is almost a 20% hp gain. Lots of guys spend way more than the hit from an 850-1000 trying to get that much of a gain out of another machine.
I was thinking about that. " MAYBE " they want to trial run it on the Scrammy in limited numbers before they release it en masse in the Sporty.They sell 10x more sportys than scramblers, so I'm not sure why Polaris chose to release the 1k on the scrambler. .
And those same guys will be spending more to get a little extra from the 1000 too, it's called; the drive to always wanting to be better or exceedLol. That's funny. But it is almost a 20% hp gain.

Really? That's apples to oranges. I.E. You're comparing the 1000's supposed rear wheel HP to the 850's crank HP.It's not going to be much faster than the 850 guys. The 850 has 77hp and the 1000 has 88ish hp. 10-12 extra hp at the motor, is more like 5-6 hp at the wheels. As far as mods go l, I spent 650 on a nitrous kit for my 850, and gained 25hp to the wheels. That's a great cost vs hp increase there. Thing is crazy fast on the button.
