2021 Sportsman 450 H.O. Sage Green is rated out of 5 by 909.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nonerpride from Decent machine for reduced price Hunting and property work. Reliable brand name. OEM spark plug was garbage; fouled out in 4-hrs run time - replaced. Antifreeze and battery poorly located; subject to impact from debris and rocks from front wheels - fabricated kydex deflectors. Tie-down points on stock racks aren’t attached to frame/structure; pointless if tying down anything with weight - just make upgraded racks apart of the stock sale. Smooth engine; plenty of power, especially in low. HUD/dash filled with operation information. Fairly quiet. Pre-wired for winch; present surprise. Would recommend others to purchase; be prepared to make a couple cheap improvements.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rogue9948 from Problems Bought the bike in August. Rode it around my yard, easing it in for the first 25 hours like I was told. No problem. Hulauled it to the hunting camp with only eight hours use, opening day wouldn't start. Had to go to a dealer near by and neaded a new spark plug. Guy new what it was without looking at it. No problems rest of the week. Haul it home in snowy conditions in an open trailer. Cant get it to move a few feet. Sits for a couple days works fine. Hunt a second week where it had to be hauled. On the way home more snowy condition, bike again wouldn't move or run properly. Had dry again. Love the bike other than the fact you can't take anywhere on a open trailer unless it's clear skies.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tommyboy57 from Dissapointed I already submitted a review and received no feedback on my comments. I do not even know why I am wasting my time with submitting this one. It has already been in for warranty repairs for rattles (cheap plastic) and two broken motor mounts. They were broken right off the show room floor. Clearly the dealership in Tomahawk, WI (Erv's, where I bought it, rather impulsively) must have used the machine and very roughly, as it is hard to believe it made it off the assembly line like that. My local dealership in Fond du Lac, WI (Fred's Fastrac) said they have never seen broken motor mounts like that. I am very disappointed and have been a long time Polaris owner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SSSS from Lemon I bought the the 450 back in mid December, it was great at first. After having it a month or so, it started cranking slow. Then two weeks ago, it would not start, just spin over. Hauled it to dealership, it was there for 10 days. I was called and told it was ready and that the fuel pump had went bad and was replaced. I picked it up this past Saturday, unloaded and parked it in the garage. Went to ride it Sunday, no start, just spins over. Called dealership today, and was told to bring it back in and drop it off. Now I’ve gotta take off work again to take it back to dealership. Not to happy with my purchase at this point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nolco from Great machine annonying hicups I bought this machine to use for snow plowing. The plow has since broken and been replaced under warranty. However I told the salesman I was going to use the machine for commercial sidewalks and the plow is definitely not up to the job. Next year I will have to purchase another plow brand. I think the idea is good but the cutting edge needs to be replaced again after one storm. Also the machine has done a few weird things when it gets wet ie check engine light coming on, sputtering, and stalling. I will say the warranty process for the plow was great. I came with a broken plow and left with a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A-ARON from Great ride I baught this atv about 3 months ago. As far as smooth ride power for towing wood it lacks nothing. It's still new to me so some things are yet to be determined. I guess if I was forced to complain about something it would be the gas cap and the flat racks. Gas cap is hard to fill with 5 gallon tank which most use..... and the flat racks make it hard for aftermarket addons. I get that wasn't to sell you the Polaris addons but their is very nice American made gear that mounts to bars very easily that simply don't work well with this set up. Like I said if I had to complain that's all the rest of the machine has surpassed my expectations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Derb from Disappointed so far I have had the bike for about two months. Excited to ride. Older 500ho has been great but getting a little tired and unreliable so I treated myself to a new one. Taken it up to the cottage three times now. Has come back each weekend basically unridden. Brake issues, won’t start each time. Getting towed back to the trailer. Into the shop each time. Leaking brake lines again this weekend Won’t start. Towed again. Back to the dealer. Maybe one day I can ride with the boys again. Starting to think I made a mistake and Polaris isn’t making the bikes like they used to and without quality parts. Warranty is nice but Polaris should be doing something for me for the inconvenience and disappointment. Darren

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aggie Mike from Sportsman 450ES We use the sportsman for all fun. My daughter had fun at her cousins house driving a Honda ATV and wanted one to ride at home. We selected the Sportsman 450 based on durability, price, and ease of use. We went back to her cousins with the new rig and she was smoking him all over the farm. Since then we have been trail riding, mud riding, riding in the snow. She cannot get enough of it. The machine is fun, controllable and dependable. She has put 20 hours on it in 3 months and it has not missed a beat. My only complaint is that the mud gets everywhere and it takes a while to clean, but hey that is some of the fun :)
