We Ride The New Polaris Ranger RZR XP 4 900

January 2012 Powersport News

Which was harsher? The desert west of Parker, AZ or the flogging we put Polaris' new Ranger RZR XP 4 900 through in that same desert?

Probably the latter. We wanted to once again see just how sound Polaris' claim that its RZRs are the best in the industry and that they can withstand a beating in the harshest of conditions. We found that true on other RZRs, including the XP 900 and RZR 4 800.

Add the RZR XP 4 900 to our list of machines that really impress us. We put the newest RZR through a day of riding-nearly 80 miles in all-in some pretty severe conditions, including all sorts of surfaces from pea gravel to rock to whoops to sand to fine dust. Just how tough was the course we rode? Many of the miles we took the RZR XP 4 900 through were on the same course as the Parker 250, the first race of 2012 for the Best In The Desert Racing Association, which was run the weekend before our ride on Polaris' newest RZR.

We'll have a full report on the Ranger RZR XP 4 900-detailing our likes and dislikes-in the March issue of Dirt Toys so watch for it. For now, here are a few pictures from our ride.
