2014 Polaris Sportsman 570 First Ride
The Rock Run recreational facility in Patton, Pennsylvania provided the perfect grounds to test the 2014 Polaris Sportsman 570.
Suspension for the 570 is a MacPherson strut design up front giving riders 8.2 inches of travel and an independent rear suspension allows the rear wheels to travel 9.5 inches.
The suspension on our Sportsman worked very well considering its simplistic design. With 11 inches of ground clearance we found it very easy to crawl over rocks and roots without belly scrub.
The fuel injected 570 packs a surprising punch and setting off down the trail the increase in power was refreshing.
This new Sportsman seemed to fit my larger 6-foot-tall body very well and after only a few minutes of riding I was completely comfortable with the ride.
Increased fuel capacity adds 11% more range to the new Sportsman, allowing riders to enjoy a good day on the trail.
Downhill sections gave the 570 mill a chance to show off its engine braking capabilities and assist in slowing the ATV.
Twisting the Sportsman 570 in and out of the trees at Rock Run was fun and there were some more technical areas that allowed us to test the precise handling of this machine.
Polaris increased the ability to power more accessories with a new stator designed for an additional 40% of 12V supply output.
Sportsman owners can load up to 180 pounds of stuff onto the rear rack and this machine will tow a claimed 1225 pounds.
The $6499 price reflects Polaris’s dedication to keep everyone riding.
