Polaris 850 Shootout VRS Kawasaki Brute Force 750

-Welcome to the Sportsman Shootout. In this episode, we're setting our sites on two Big-Bore ATVs: The new Polaris Sportsman XP 850 EFI and the Brute Force 750. (paintball blasts) Back in '96, the Polaris Sportsman forever changed the way we work, hunt, and ride. The Brute Force jumped into the ring later years later and has been trying to muscle its way past the Sportsman ever since. Now, before I get to the shootout, I wanna introduce you to the next generation of Sportsman ATVs. The all-new Sportsman XP. For whatever you ride now, think about having more power, quicker acceleration, easier steering, and the smoothest ride you can imagine. That's the Sportsman XP. Just look at it, huh? The Sportsman XP is 99% new and 100% Sportsman. It's got all the features that made the Sportsman the world's best-selling automatic ATV: independent rear suspension, on-demand true all-wheel drive, and, of course, the proven automatic transmission. All better than ever. All designed for extreme performance. Now, for power, (chuckles) this thing's got an 850cc twin. It's longitudinally mounted with dual throttle body fuel injection and 70 horsepower. Now, a new transmission helps put all that power to the ground. It's got roller clutch technology, thick center distance clutches, and an MBL 5,000-mile belt for big bore durability. And more power requires more cooling. The XP radiator is 20% larger. Position almost 5 inches higher and angle 5 degrees steeper. Now for the fun part. We're going big bore hunting to see which one has the power and ride: the new Sportsman XP 850 or the Brute Force 750. So let's head out to the Sportsman Shootout. -(narrator) In the real world, pulling power is the ultimate ATV tough test. For a fair fight, let's go head-to-head on the weight transfer sled. The Brute Force chugs off the line and drags the sled to 50.5 feet. The new Sportsman XP hooks up faster and pulls harder, moving the sled 47% farther than 74 feet. A quick pull is one thing, but in the real world, jobs like working a food plot mean pulling a load for hours at a time. We'll put both ATVs in a dynamometer to simulate a maximum load condition and see how long it takes them to overheat. We did this test against all the major big bores and the Brute Force came in last. It took just 3 minutes, 8 seconds for the hot light to come on. The new Sportsman XP, with the largest big-bore radiator, went 30 minutes at maximum load and the hot light still hadn't come on. That's extreme performance. When it's time to unleash all that big-bore power, you need an ATV that can get the job done. We'll run each ATV off the line for 10 seconds and see which one hooks up and delivers the most power to the ground. The Brute Force goes 644 feet. The Sportsman, with 20 more horsepower, puts the power to the ground and goes 659 feet. That's 15 feet, 2 quad lengths farther in 10 seconds. Out on the trail, the Earth is not your mother. She's going to try and stop you with mud, stumps, windfalls, and boulders. We'll compare how fast the two vehicles deliver extra traction. Let's say the metal stomp on this rolling road is a big underwater root. You need more traction. When the Brute Force is in 4-wheel drive and is stopped by a boulder or a log, its limited slip front differential sends power to just one front wheel. It's going nowhere. To lock in the front wheels, you must pull a lever and hold it for the entire time that you need that extra traction, each and every time. And even if you do that, you may still have to wait for the wheels to turn quite a few revolutions before locking in. On the Sportsman XP, there's no stopping, no extra levers to hold down. The on-demand true all-wheel drive senses when the rear wheels slip, then automatically locks in and delivers full torque to all four wheels. Pulling power, cooling, 10 second distance, and 4-wheel traction. In a herd of big-bores, Sportsman XP is the new alpha male. (gunshots blasting) -Many big-bore ATVs are like this elephant gun. Lots of power, but they make you flinch every time you pull the trigger. There's no flinching on the new Sportsman XP, because the ride is better than ever. But check this out. There's a new front suspension with dual A-arms and longer travel and they improved the rear suspension too. It has rolled IRS with 4 degrees of tip back and the longest travel. These are the biggest stock wheels ever put on an ATV, 14 inches. It's not just for show; it actually improves steering. See, the bigger rims allow the engineers to move the hub deeper into the wheel. That moves the steering axis closer to the center of the tire. So more of the force from hitting a rock or a rut is absorbed by the suspension so you feel it less in the handlebars. They call it anti-kickback steering. So bigger wheels, longer A-arms, and more suspension travel. You add it all up and you get one more thing: higher ground clearance, 12 inches worth. Jump on and you'll discover a whole new way to sit on an ATV. See, you straddle other big-bores, but you ride the XP. Because we turn the engine 90 degrees, the seat is 3.25 inches narrow at the knees and 5 inches narrow at the feet. So, your legs and feet are closer together so you can grip the machine, just like riding a sport quad. Let's head back to the Sportsman Shootout and compare the ride of the Sportsman XP to the Brute Force. Check it out. -(narrator) Trying to tame the rocks can be pretty intimidating, especially if it means arm-wrestling the handlebars. That won't happen on the Sportsman XP. To compare steering, we'll attach an accelerometer on the handlebars of each vehicle and take them over the bump track. The Brute Force goes first, followed by the Sportsman XP. It's easy to feel the difference, but tough to show it on video. That's where the accelerometer comes in. We'll graph the results. Hitting the bumps, the Kawasaki had brutal force at the handlebars, an average of 5.3 Gs. The Sportsman XP tested out at 4.3 Gs. That's roughly 23% less handlebar shock, which means much easier steering. For the ultimate and easy steering, the Sportsman XP is also available with Electronic Power Steering. Ruts, logs, massive boulders. keeping the ride smooth takes a sophisticated suspension and lots of travel. Travel is the distance from the bottom of the suspension stroke to the top. The Sportsman XP has 9 inches of front travel. 2.3 inches more than the Brute Force. In back, the XP 10.25 inches, 2.3 inches more. That's the highest you can get in a big-bore ATV for the smoothest ride on extreme terrain. Ever been looking downhill on an ATV? Sportsman XP has the best downhill control by combining active descent control and engine breaking. The two systems work together to electronically monitor and control engine breaking to give you smoother, easier descense. In this test, with no hand or foot brakes applied, The Brute Force rolled down the hill at over 13 miles per hour. The XP crawled down at just 5 miles per hour, delivering superior control. Better steering, suspension, and downhill breaking. The Sportsman XP easily outrides the Brute Force. -The new Sportsman XP. XP stands for "extreme performance", and that's your silver bullet.
