2008 Sportsman 500 EFI Touring

Sportsman 500 EFI Touring
Sportsman 500 EFI Touring

Whether it’s a long ride or a not-so-long ride, we designed the NEW Sportsman® Touring to be the most comfortable trip two people can have on an ATV. Period. So you and your passenger can enjoy the journey as much as the destination.

Standard Features

  • Vibration-Isolating Handholds: Offer passenger support while minimizing fatigue.
  • Vibration-Isolating Footrests: Ensures a comfortable ride for passengers of all heights.
  • Rolled Independent Rear Suspension (IRS): Our legendary Sportsman IRS, angled for an even smoother ride for the passenger.
  • Ultra-Comfortable Seat and Backrest: Offering the most passenger room of any two-up ATV.
  • All New Active Descent Control (ADC): Work together with Sportsman’s Engine Braking System (EBS) to give you optimum control and smooth, even deceleration during descents.
  • On-Demand AWD: The Polaris AWD automatically engages all wheels when you need more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when you don’t.
  • Versatrack Turf Mode: Minimize footprint on sensitive terrain.
  • Available Painted Finish: Metallic automotive-style finish is 900 percent tougher and nine times more scratch-resistant than standard plastic is and, if damaged, can be easily repaired.
  • Dual cup holders.
