With 31 Horsepower and Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) the 450 H.O. starts flawlessly and runs smoothly in varied temperature and altitude. And when compared to Honda® Rancher® the Sportsman 450 H.O. delivers 15% more power to tow more, haul more and go further.
The best automatic 4x4 system out there, the AWD engages all four tires when the rear wheels slip and you need more forward traction and automatically reverts back to 2WD when you don’t. Compare that to Honda® Rancher® and you can see why the Polaris On-Demand AWD System is the best out there.
Carry more with a combined front and rear rack capacity of 270 lbs (180 lbs. Rear, 90 lbs. Front capacity). Sportsman 450 H.O. features flat racks and integrated steel tie downs to easily tie down and secure cargo.
The most integrated storage of any ATV. The 6.5 gallon capacity lets you stow-away loads of gear and still have access to it, even with items tied to the deck.
Carry more cargo with the Lock & Ride® XL Storage System. Tailor it to your needs with purpose-built internal bags designed specifically for hunting, trail riding, or utility applications.
Drive Up, Clip In & Go with the Polaris Engineered™ Glacier Pro® Plow System.
