Polaris 2012 :
Les rumeurs vont bon train de partout sur les nouveautés 2012 de la gamme POLARIS !
Polaris France pourrait dévoiler très prochainement (dans les jours à venir apparemment) les nouveautés pour le territoire national en 2012.
Suspens donc, mais en attendant, sur les sites et forums américains, voici un florilège de ce que l'on découvre.... attention, toutes les nouveautés peuvent ne pas concerner notre beau pays, ... en version originale, histoire de ne pas déformer les propos, c'est mieux !
Ok, ok, en résumé et en français cela nous donne un RZR 570, un Ranger Crew Diesel, des modifications côté accélération dans la gamme Sportsman, de nouveaux systèmes de freinage EBS dans la gamme Ranger, des caractéristiques du RZR 900 appliquées au reste de la gamme RZR, un nouveau 850 Twin EFI, en tout cas beaucoup d'améliorations sur la gamme... des couleurs dont un beau jaune, etc.... ! Plusieurs éditions limitées dans chaque gamme... Que garder de ces infos made in US pour notre petit pays ?
Ne tuons pas le suspens dans l'oeuf et attendons sagement que notre bien aimé distributeur français nous dévoile ce qui concernera notre territoire en 2012 ! Espoir quand tu nous tiens !
Depuis les sites et forums américains :
"Polaris RANGER utility vehicles are the hardest working, smoothest riding Side-by-Sides available in full-size, midsize and multi-passenger models. For 2012, the multi-passenger line up gets a new member with the introduction of the RANGER CREW Diesel. The new RANGER CREW Diesel will have all the attributes of the RANGER CREW 800 but with an ISO-mounted YANMAR® diesel power plant. New in the fullsize segment for 2012, the RANGER HD 800 will be equipped with the Polaris Engine Braking System (EBS) for optimum downhill control and smooth, even deceleration during descents. Polaris also will offer several limited edition models across the fullsize, midsize and multi-passenger segments including RANGER XP 800, RANGER 500 EFI and RANGER CREW 800 models".
"Sportsman ATVs lead the industry with their hardest working features and legendary smooth ride. For 2012, Polaris will have more powerful big bore ATVs with the introduction of the new 850 Twin, EFI, High Output engine. The engine delivers 20 percent more acceleration off the line and will be available in the Sportsman XP 850 H.O. and Sportsman Touring 850 H.O. To make the hardest working value models work even harder, the Sportsman 800 EFI, Sportsman Big Boss 6x6 800, Sportsman 500 H.O. and Sportsman 400 H.O. will receive integrated front storage for 2012. Changes in the 2-Up Segment include the Sportsman Touring 500 H.O. also receiving integrated front storage.

"The RANGER RZR family is only Side-by-Side line up with the ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility. This past January, Polaris introduced a whole new class of Side-by-Side, the highly-anticipated RANGER RZR XP 900, the reception has been incredible. To build off the RANGER RZR XP 900’s success, for 2012, the company took xtreme performance features first introduced on the RANGER RZR XP 900 and added them across the line".
"2012 RANGER RZR XP 900 Features found on the RANGER RZR XP 900 that will be added to the RANGER RZR 800, RANGER RZR S 800 and RANGER RZR 4 800 include a front drive cage made from zinc for added durability, a durable dual clutch inlet for low and high speed cooling, improved fit and finish in the cockpit and a 33-percent thicker skid plate.
The entire line also will feature a new passenger grab bar tube with an anti-rattle bushing for reduced noise. The xtreme performing RANGER RZR XP 900 also will feature a redesigned front suspension geometry for less steering effort increased maneuverability at slow speeds, convenient, adjustable Fox 2.0 shocks and a rubber isolated prop shaft for less driveline noise. Several RANGER RZR XP 900, RANGER RZR 800, RANGER RZR S 800 and RANGER RZR 4 800 limited edition models also will be available".
"Polaris’ best-selling Youth line up will include five models based upon the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America’s (SVIA) Youth ATV Categories, the RANGER RZR 170 (Y-12+ and T with Big Wheel Kit) , Phoenix 200 (T), Sportsman 90 (Y-12+), Outlaw 90 (Y-12+) and Outlaw 50 (Y-6+)".
"To support the Model Year 2012 launch, PURE Polaris will have a wide variety of accessories available including cabs, plows, brushguards, storage and specialty items to get more out of your Polaris vehicle. In addition, PURE Polaris has a full apparel offering for comfort, style and safety.
utv guide “The launch of the RANGER RZR 800 introduced the industry to the first trail-capable Side-by-Side,” said Matt Homan, vice president and general manager of Polaris’ Off-Road Division. “With the success of the RANGER RZR 800, we saw the need for a single-cylinder model at a price point that will allow more customers to enter the trail-capable Side-by-Side segment.”
"At the heart of the RANGER RZR 570 is an all-new ProStar™ 570 single cylinder, DOHC, electronic fuel injected engine. The engine is the second in the ProStar family, made specifically for Side-by-Side vehicles, which also includes the ProStar 900 introduced earlier this year in the RANGER RZR XP 900. The ProStar 570 has 650 watts of stator output and features a removable cargo bed floor and a wet sump for easy serviceability.
To complement the new engine, Polaris equipped the RANGER RZR 570 with a new transmission that was specifically built to optimize the power of the new ProStar engine. Its optimized gear geometry means more power to the ground, less driveline noise and lighter weight. The innovative design, first featured on the RANGER RZR XP 900, features a helical cut final drive with high torque capacity to maximize efficiency.
To tackle the rugged trail, the RANGER RZR 570 features an all-new, ultra smooth Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) with specifically-designed geometry that provides 9.5-inches of travel in the rear. The front suspension features Dual A-Arms with 9-inches of suspension travel. Coupling the front and rear suspension with a 77-inch long wheelbase, pre-load adjustable ZF Sachs Shocks on all four corners and exclusive front and rear anti-sway bars that keep the chassis flat while cornering, gives the RANGER RZR 570 the ability to soak up anything the trail can throw in its way".
"Since the launch of the RANGER RZR 800 in 2008, Polaris has been the only manufacturer to offer a trail-capable Side-by-Side. At 50 inches wide, the RANGER RZR 570 is the second trail-capable model in the family. Built with the patented design that places the engine behind the seat, the RANGER RZR 570 has a low center of gravity delivering agile, razor-sharp handling on the trail. When the trail gets rough, the vehicle’s True All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system puts the 50-inch width to work in and out of corners. It’s the easiest-to-use and fastest responding on-demand system that automatically engages all four wheels when forward traction is needed and it reverts back to two-wheel drive automatically when AWD is no longer needed. The system provides easier steering, less wear and tear on driveline components, and maximum power when you need it most".
"For comfort, RANGER RZR 570 also sports comfortable ergonomics with tilt steering offering the widest range of motion, adjustable hand rails and seats. Safety features include a Certified Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) and side nets designed for easy in-and-out access. For gear, the unit features a new, rear 300 lb capacity, flat cargo box with Lock & Ride® accessory technology and built-in rack extenders to maximize carrying capacity".
" For Model Year 2012, the Sportsman 400 H.O. will be available in Indy Red and new Boardwalk Blue. The best-selling Sportsman 500 H.O. will be available in Indy Red, Green and new, back-by-popular demand, Yellow option, the Sportsman 800 EFI will be offered in Indy Red and Yellow, and the Sportsman Big Boss 6x6 800 will continued to be offered in Green.
