TAKE YOUR JOURNEY TO THE TOP

2020 Sportsman® 850 Sage Green is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Ride Evaluation, AWSOME!!! I went out today for the first ride on a new machine, this 850SP is awesome.Power to spare, great handling? That exhaust note is sweet compared to my 2016 570. My only complaint is the CST tires. I had 2 flat tires in the first 20 miles. Both were small punctures on the side walls. If CST had any sidewall protection, i don't think this would have happened. Hey you guys in R&D you designed a great machine, why did you go cheap with these CST tires? I'm glad it has ample storage for an air compressor and plug kit or else I'd still be walking! I'd rate this 850SP a 5 star if it weren't for the cheap tires.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plenty power I bought this 850 Sportsman for hunting and scouting. It has power to handle rough terrain but it's not an optimum hunting machine. It is too loud for hunting and it doesn't idle around at slow speed well. The differentials are noisy. Fuel consumption is higher than any other motorcycle that I have ever owned. It performs well in situations where it is being accellerated. There are wires exposed on the machine which brings concern about riding thru brush, briars and sapplings. I can't say that I am unhappy about the purchase but it certainly wasn't what I was expecting. I guess the Honda's Ive owned in the past just have me spoiled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond pleased! I bought my Polaris Sportman 850 in March. I’ve put a couple hundred miles on since I’ve owned it and they’ve been hard miles mostly. I’m beyond pleased with it. The power of the twin cylinder high output engine nnis unbelievable. You can stand it up on two wheels without even trying. So far it’s tackled everything I’ve put it through with no problems. It does great in the mud. And it’s such a comfortable ride. The arched A-arms are so nice to have. My only complaint is the location of the radiator. It’s plugs with much pretty easy. But it’s also very easy to clean. Other than that this quad has been so great to me and has shown up quite of few other brands in the woods. My cousin said he will definitely purchasing a Polaris for his next quad after seeing how mine performs. I’m proud to say I own a Polaris!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine! Only have 500 miles on it but so far so good. I moved into this from a 570 and I have to admit that it takes some getting use to due to the power. There has been a couple of times that I hit the throttle and it takes off way faster than the 570. I love that the grill comes out to make cleaning the radiator easy and the removable storage tray is awesome because it makes everything very accessible

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the price I bought a new 850 sportsman, it's pretty good, thought it would have a touch more power. It's alright though. Nice cup holder. Needs a 2" receiver hitch. Could move the rear axle back a couple inches too. Over all a nice unit. Brake light switch don't work on foot brake. Cup holder is on the wrong side. Nice storage. Tires could be better. Smooth down the road at 83 though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine, love it. This is my third polaris machine, they just keep getting better. Excellent ride, excellent power, excellent fuel economy. I highly recommend the factory option racks and bumpers, really improves the look and utility of the machine, while protecting it as well. Dealer installed them before I picked it up, easy as that. The polaris plow is extremely easy to put on and off with no mounts hanging below the frame rails. Plows awesome. Extremely fast in the woods and pits. Sounds great with the new single exhaust just like the 1000. Very happy I decided to grab a 2019.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing else like it! Had this machine since early Spring. Use it extensively in the mountains. I live at 9,300ft. In elevation. This Polaris NEVER lacks power, dependability and comfort.
