The 2008 Polaris Sportsman 500 EFI X2 shares all the good things his bigger brother brought to the off-road game, with the niftiest being the capacity to switch between the two-up riding configuration to a solo, work-focused one, all without tools and in few easy steps. The rear cargo box hides the pillion seat when work has to be done, allowing larger bulks to be accommodated with ease, and returning to a touring stance once the job is done, and being once more a fun toy for two.

The half-liter engine drives the automatic transmission for easy operation while the active descent control and engine braking systems make tackling the steep slopes much safer and easier, too. Progressive rate rear suspensions make sure the 2008 Polaris Sportsman 500 EFI X2 will provide a smooth ride regardless of load and terrain, while big-bore engine will make things fun in pretty much any scenario.
