2008 Sportsman 800 EFI

Sportsman 800 EFI Red
Sportsman 800 EFI Red

Take the tough Sportsman®, bolt on a massive 800-Twin engine, and you’ve got a take-no-prisoners powerhouse that delivers monstrous loads of power and torque to get you up, over, and through anything you put in front of it.

Standard Features

  • Dual Exhaust: Gives the 800 twin more torque output, more power, and the deep growl that every beast needs to intimidate its prey. Now with nine percent more power and twelve percent more torque.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • All New Active Descent Control (ADC): Work together with Sportman’s Engine Braking System (EBS) to give you optimum control when moving down hills and steep inclines.
  • On-Demand AWD: The Polaris exclusive AWD automatically engages all wheels when you need more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when you do not.
  • Front Storage: The largest front storage of any ATV. Large capacity lets you carry loads of gear and still have access to it even with items tied down to the deck.
  • Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) 800 Twin Engine: Automatically adjusts to altitude and air temperature for faster starts, crisper throttle responses and better fuel economy.
  • Three-Star PXT Tires: Exclusive 0.75 inch lug tire-cleaning pattern maximizes traction in mud and loose terrain.
