The All-New, Center-Cockpit Polaris RZR RS1 is Here


Most Agile RZR Ever Built, Features 110 HP and Industry First Single-Seat SxS to Deliver the Unique Combination of Power Meeting Precision

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – February 1, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Polaris is putting every open space and green-, desert- or mountain-trail on notice with the arrival of the world’s first single-seat RZR, the RZR RS1. The all-new RZR RS1 solo-cockpit format delivers a heightened sense of control and takes the hard-charging trail riding experience to another level, thanks to the perfect balance of power and precision.


The RZR RS1 is the ideal machine for a real driver’s driver looking to push beyond their limits, free from care or concern of a backseat driver. The single-seat center-of-mass position unlocks high-visibility sightlines to oncoming terrain and provides increased balance and feel within the chassis. The race-inspired driver ergonomics and new steering position create extra room for active arm and leg movement. The RZR RS1 is also equipped with a new brake system, giving drivers the option of traditional single-foot action or rally-inspired two-foot performance.


“The thing that you notice, right away with the RZR RS1, is that it’s much more of a driver’s machine, and it really ties you more in the driving experience,” said Tanner Foust, 3-time World Rally Cross Champion. “You have center-cockpit, you have the involvement in seeing the tires, and you have everything great about the fun of driving, taken up a notch. Personally, I think the RZR RS1 is about the gnarliest little wicked beast of a machine, that I have ever driven.”

The ultra-nimble 64” width RZR RS1 features a 110-HP ProStar 1000 H.O. 4-Stroke DOHC Twin Cylinder, the RZR XP® 1000’s suspension, upgraded drivetrain and compact, 83-inch wheelbase. The new precision-balanced chassis features a rear-mounted, dual-fan radiator for maximum engine cooling and a new race-hardened drivetrain for durability and instantaneous power. The RZR RS1 also adopts the trailing-arm suspension of the RZR XP 1000, to absorb unrelenting obstacles for the smoothest possible driving experience as you scythe through the most twisting of trails.

The RZR RS1 boasts 20 vehicle-specific accessories and comes in White Lightening and Black Pearl. The performance and power packed RZR RS1 starts at a price of just $13,999 and will be available in dealerships in February.

      Hi everyone, I am wondering what are the best mods for enhancing the overall performance of my 04 Predator 500. Thanks.

      If you seen my other thread you will know that I am looking for a suitable quad for my grandfather and mom. I want an older utility quad with good predictable power, low and cheep to repair, and has AWD. There are several models even as early as the mid 90's and I need to know what the differences are for each. I don't even know which ones are 4x4, 2T or 4T, e start or pull/kick, displacement, features and so on. Anybody that knows the difference or has a link to that info please post it. Thanks in advance.

      Does anybody know where I can get a service manuel for a 2005 Polaris 500 Predator? I also need some assistance in dialing in the Fox Podium shocks on this machine. I feel that the compression damping is way to stiff, but what do I know? This is my first ATV. It is an '05 Troy Lee edition 500cc Predator with the Fox Podium resevoir shocks on the front and back.

      So they both have really good life insurance policies and...
      I am wondering what a good quad would be for my grandfather 87 and mom 53. She does not want to spend more then a grand maybe 1200 to 1300 but that is max.
      I need something with
      A) RELIABLE!!!!!
      fully automatic trans
      C) at least 250cc, I don't want them to have to wring it's neck in tuff uphill terrain
      D) something cheep to maintain like a 2T with CVT belt driven, don't want to worry about gears and all the other problems
      E) 4X4, I don't want them to worry about getting stuck anywhere. They are not going to know to keep their speed up or accelerate to get out of ruts steep rocky inclines and so on.
      F) can't eat gas, must be somewhat effective on MPG
      G) it can't throw them off, it needs good constant torque and horse power but must be very predictable if it rears up it will loose them.
      H) something that can really take a beating. It will see a lot of hard work, towing horse poop, knocking down weeds, rocks just about everything. It is going to be tested:devil:
      I) forgot to mention this in the general thread I posted but must have smooth suspension, not pro caliber or caddy style but I don't want them getting beat to death by the seat:smirk:
      My grandfather is coming off my dads (ridden twice) TRX200sx but it lacks the power to keep driving easy and he has to shift, no clutch but I don't want my mom or him to have to deal with anything but throttle and brakes. After watching my brother father and myself ride my dad decided to buy another '86 TRX 250R and now they both would really like to try it but need something that inspires confidence not something that peels your head back over your shoulder:smirk:.
      I was thinking a 1991 Polaris TrailBoss 350L. It is 4x4, 2T so cheep to rebuild, low hi reverse band driven, green stickered and 4x4.
      So would this be a good choice or should I look into something els. I also want something with really good pulling power to take out brush and small trees, cutting trails and more important pulling people out of the mud or ruts when the get stuck. This is secondary issue but a big reason for wanting the 4x4 and larger displacement.
      Any help would be much appreciated, again reliability is a key issue. Obviously I would like plush suspension and lights and so on but buying something this old, I need it to work or any feature is useless, we can't throw large amounts of money into this quad right after buying it.
      Thanks to all:worthy:
