New Polaris Sportsman 800 Twin EFI All-Terrain Vehicle Named "Best of the Best"
Polaris Industries today announced that its new 2005 Sportsman 800 Twin EFI was named the "Best of the Best" all-terrain vehicle by Field & Stream Magazine.
"We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award from one of the most prominent outdoor publications," said Bennett Morgan, vice president of the ATV Division at Polaris. "The Sportsman 800 Twin EFI sets Polaris apart by offering consumers a machine that can handle and conquer anything you put in its path."
According to Field & Stream, "This is the first ATV to hit the 800cc class and it possesses enough torque to pull your garage down. It will also attack a trail, clear deep snow off a driveway, till a food plot effortlessly and get your deer out of any thick and nasty bottom."
2004 marked the seventh annual Field & Stream "Best of the Best Awards". A seven-man panel of expert sportsmen and gear fanatics spent one year testing hundreds of outdoor products. The panel chose 18 products, the best of the best, they felt exemplified smart designs, fair prices and performance that outmatched anything else they tested.
"We launched the 800 Twin EFI to our dealers and customers at our 50th anniversary celebration in July and the response was overwhelming," said Morgan. "Since then, we've continued to see a growing demand for the machine. This is truly the toughest and most powerful ATV we've brought to market in the history of Polaris."
The new 800 twin engine with electronic fuel injection (EFI) delivers stunning torque, acceleration and cruising power. The EFI ensures easy starting in all conditions and it automatically adjusts to changes in elevation. The independent rear suspension creates the smoothest ride along with redesigned floorboards for better drainage and splash protection; the grille and racks are made of a virtually unbreakable new composite material; the front and rear storage compartments are dust and water tight; and the 800 features the new Lock n' Ride accessory system with quick attach storage boxes, windshields and gun scabbards to name a few.
Model year 2005 ATVs, as well as accessories and riding gear, are available at local Polaris dealers nationwide.
