To go along with a new 2020 RZR and Ranger release .  Polaris engineers developed an entirely new chassis – one that’s bigger, bolder, and stronger than ever before. With 31% larger main-frame tubing, it was designed to be abused, stomped on, and beaten through the worst terrain and never give in.

 It takes more than raw performance to dominate any terrain, you also need  $14,999 and you will get a vehicle that is tough as nails and resolute in the worst conditions. For this reason, the entire chassis of the Scrambler XP® 1000 S.   is new and designed to work in harmony with the bold performance attributes of the vehicle. We then complimented this uncompromising design with resilient components giving you the confidence to lead the pack and charge headlong over any terrain.

RZR S Front Differential

To get the toughest performance-focused design for the all-new Sportsman and Scrambler XP 1000 S, we needed to go to the one of most dominating, race-proven side-by-sides in the world – the RZR XP1000. We utilized the front differential and half-shafts and brought a 15% increase in component strength, delivering rugged dependability with unquestioned confidence.

Stronger Transmission

Some ATVs look tough, be we knew the new Sportsman and Scrambler XP 1000 S had to deliver which is why we completely redesigned the transmission with 25% stronger components to work in harmony with the increase in travel, ground clearance and larger tires.  

The world knows no limits when it comes to terrain, which is why we rose above the expected and developed an ATV delivering a terrain shattering 14.5” of ground clearance. Combined with the wide, stable stance and long-travel suspension, little can stand in the way between you and destinations unknown.

The impressive wide-stance of the all-new Sportsman and Scrambler XP® 1000 S is enhanced with front-to-rear matched 27” Duro Powergrip II tires. Mounted on new 12” rims, the larger sidewall allows the tires to conform to terrain and deliver optimum feedback to the driver, while the matched size provides perfect balance. The rugged construction resists punctures and a unique tread pattern is engineered for maximum grip in varied terrain.
