2021 POLARIS RZR RS1
The 2021 Polaris RZR RS1 is the only high performance single-seat UTV and the impressive power and handling of this 110 horsepower, 1340 pound, 64 inch wide machine has made it a popular choice for racers. At $14,999, it’s also a great performance value and an exciting machine for play riding thanks to the unique balance and exceptional visibility the singe seat platform provides.
The RS1 is equipped with the the front differential, primary clutch, secondary, clutch, CVT belt and transmission from the 168 horsepower RZR XP Turbo. The RZR Turbo-grade drivetrain provides extra reliability for aggressive driving. The RS-1’s dual-fan rear-mounted radiator adds cooling capacity and stops mud roosted from other vehicles from obstructing the radiator. The light, compact chassis features double A-arm front suspension with Walker Evans 2.0 piggyback needle shocks and trailing arm rear suspension with Walker Evans 2.5 remote reservoir needle shocks. Polaris claims 21 inches of front and rear travel. Front and rear sway bars fight body roll. The RS1 gets a Sub-Zero four-point harness with padded shoulders that retains the ignition cut-out and seat-belt warning light if the lap belt is not attached. A special, stepped brake pedal is designed for one- or two-foot driving, like rally and formula drift drivers do. While the RZR XP 1000 goes into limp mode if you use too much brake and throttle at the same time, the RS1 is programed not to go into limp mode.
