Sportsman® Touring 850

IMPRESSIVE 2-UP PASSENGER PERFORMANCE

2020 Sportsman® Touring 850 Navy Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 249.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great New Look! A near perfect machine with a great looking new design that sharpen the over all appearance. Old square lock and ride box (which sadly isn’t available) will still fit. Upgraded from 2 ply oem tires to some real trail/rock tires. Wish the 850 came with same tires as 1000xp, but I’m sure it helps keep cost down. Does have build in front box, so saves 200 bucks there at least. Only thing I’d truly change is access to rear storage inside the quad needs to be put back from the rear. Only accessible by removing lock and ride box and that’s a pain. Love the cup holder. Over all it’s a great looking machine and handles better than anything out there. Been on Polaris almost 10 years now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suspension, power. I love everything about my 850, the ride, power, and comfort is superb vs my 570 touring model. HOWEVER, it is in the shop right now for shifting issues, it started off hard to shift when I bought it new and after 17 hours of use it will not shift at all unless it is not running. I don't like the fact I was warned when dropping it off at my dealership that if I burned a belt it would not be covered under warranty? Not sure how I could burn a belt with only 17 hours of easy riding around my property, I am 63 years old and I am not by any means abusing this ATV. I don't like the uneasy feeling of waiting 7 days now to see if I am going to have to pay anything to repair a brand new quad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect!! 2 minor issues This was my first brand new atv I’ve purchased. Love the power the way it handles. The seat is amazing and the cup holder is definitely a nice extra bonus. The reasons I can’t give it 5 stars are small but it was part of the selling features that led me to choose this atv. The front storage area after only 2 months lost one of the pins/hinges and the seal to prevent water getting in came off within days. Also got the lock and ride rear cargo box and it’s seal came off right away also. Also the lock and ride box has a tendency to come unfastened easier that was expected

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don’t go through puddles Radiator was redesigned since my 2014 and catches all mud possible there are no shrouds on bottom of radiator to block mud coming up from underneath machine and the radiator is tilted backwards Wich allows all mud to sit on it and dry

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great riding machine but.. I bought my Sportsman 850 and was super excited about the ride quality and power. The handling and ride performance is the best I've experienced from an ATV. However, after putting just a couple hours on the machine (notably only light riding around our farm), I started noticing a clunking sound coming from the rear end, especially at low speeds. I'm not 100% sure if it's transmission related or the rear differential but it's definitely something that's going to require attention. I've had Polaris machines in the past that lasted thousands of miles without issue. I guess I'm currently a bit disappointed that this current one is already demonstrating that there's something not right. Sure glad I purchased an extended warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from There is good and bad with this 850 touring The good: Power, handling, the ride, reliability (so far), seat comfort , front storage and 4x4 ability. The bad: No rear seat insert accessory for when riding without the rear seat( older models had this), Rear cargo box has been discontinued, rear rack is way to small, (this is a touring model and should have a rack like the can-am), Other than the basic stuff there is no cool accessories from Polaris for this model, Spent over 2 grand for Polaris beadlock wheels and tires and then found out there not true beadlocks. (Only work with the thin cheap stock tires.Polaris has yet made this right with me), Conclusion: Do to the issue with the wheel and tire package, the fact that the machine took FOREVER to get in when ordered, lack off accessories and that customer service is not Knowledgeable in regard to this model I would not recommend Polaris products to anyone

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good ride, could use some enhancements My husband and I bought this one to use while camping and hunting. It is powerful and easy to handle. However, the throttle is activated by pressing with the thumb which becomes very tiring after awhile. Movement of the throttle causes the ride to become jerky because of the the range of motion on the throttle is very small. Backing off just a little bit slows the ATV down alot all of the sudden. It would also be nice if there was more closed storage available with the vehicle without having to buy extra accessories. Traveling for a day and having coats, bow and arrow, backpacks...etc. becomes a exercise in creative bungi-cording things to the ATV. The passenger seat sits up high and the handle grips are perfect for hanging on while riding. We are happy with our purchase overall.
