Big news is out from Polaris Industries as they introduce their 2013 Sport ATV Lineup with the new Scrambler 850 poster child. The Scrambler enters the market as the only challenger to the Can-Am Renegade and it certainly looks ready for the fight.
The Scrambler 850 replaces the previous Scrambler 500. The 850 is powered by a high-output SOHC engine with twin electronic fuel injectors (EFI). Expect 77 horsepower from this rocket. The new Scrambler also has all new styling and on-demand four-wheel drive that engages when the rear tires lose traction and disengages when it’s not needed. The Scrambler has 12 inches of ground clearance and 10/25 inches of IRS travel. It also has 75 pounds of rack capacity to help make a full day out of your riding adventure. The basic model is found in white and has an MSRP of $9,499.
The 2013 Polaris Scrambler 850 is also available in an EPS Stealth Black LE with proven FOX Podium 1.0 shocks and Electronic Power Steering. The LE model also adds a digital dash, LED lights, handguards and black cast aluminum wheels. MSRP on the LE is $11,999.
Returning for 2013 are the Trail Boss 330, Trail Blazer 330 and Phoenix 200 models. Virtually unchanged from 2012 the Trail Boss and Trail Blazer are basically the same unit simply with or without racks. Both two-wheel drive units carry and MSRP of $4,399. The Phoenix 200 continues to be a stable mid-model for youths too big for entry units but not yet age appropriate for full size. It carries an MSRP of $3,599.
