Polaris

2008 Sportsman 400 H.O.

Sportsman 400 H.O. Red
Sportsman 400 H.O. Red

Why settle for an inferior imposter when you can get all the legendary Sportsman features you need in a midsize ATV? The NEW Sportsman 400 HO (and Sportsman 300) are the only ATVs in their class with IRS, On-Demand True AWD, and full instrumentation. They’re just like their bigger brothers, only on smaller, midsize chassis.

Standard Features

  • Independent Rear Suspension (IRS): The heart of what makes a Sportsman a Sportsman. The rock-solid, proven design minimizes body roll and keeps the ride smooth.
  • Liquid-Cooled 400 cc Engine: Liquid-cooled 400 cc High Output (H.O.) engine for more punch.
  • On-Demand AWD: The Polaris exclusive AWD automatically engages all wheels when you need more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when you don’t.
  • Instrumentation: Digital fuel gauge, speedometer, odometer, tripmeter and hourmeter keep your ATV’s vital information just a glance away.
  • Storage: Integrated deck and storage compartment lets you carry gear on top while keeping your more precious cargo inside, out of harm’s way.
