In case you're not afraid of big-bore ATVs, then you're in for quite a rewarding ride, as the 2014 Sportsman 800 EFI has also been engineered with comfort in mind, to back up its working abilities.
Operation is easy and intuitive thanks to the automatic transmission: with both high and low ratios, the gearbox also uses on-demand AWD for instant extra grip when needed, engaging and disengaging front axle traction automatically. Engine braking is not offered as standard, but it looks you can tick this box before you buy.
The 54 HP parallel twin engine comes with fuel injection and this means effortless starting in the cold morning air, regardless of yout altitude: the 2014 Sportsman 800 EFI will start hassle-free on the beach or high up in the mountains.
Taming the beast is easier with 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, while tackling the tough obstacles is more fun with 11.25" (28.6 cm) of clearance and the long-travel MacPherson strut in the front and dual A-arm rig in the rear.
The solid racks of the 2014 Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI can accommodate 300 lbs (136 kg) of gear, while the 1,500 lbs (680 kg) hitch towing rate makes sure you can accomplish plenty of difficult tasks in the wild.
Add in the digital dash and a plethora of optional accessories to transform the 2014 Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI the way you want, for both work and play. With a $7,499 (€5,530) base price, this ATV is available in Blue Fire or Sage Green.
