Price reductions on Polaris ATVs

Price reductions on Polaris ATVs

Polaris is putting more value into the pockets of New Zealanders with several price reductions on ATVs.

Farmers and recreational riders are the big winners as retail prices drop by as much as $2,500.

There’s real value for farmers, orchardists and those working on turf with the all-terrain pickup models, the specialist Polaris 4WD ATVs with low-impact drive, tipping tray and extra cargo space.

The ATP330 is now just $11,495, down $2100, while the ATP500 is down $2500 to $13,500.

The Polaris model most commonly bought by farmers today, the high-output 4WD Sportsman 500, is down from $14,995 to $13,495 in sticker price. It’s a model also popular among weekend ATV fun riders.

A six-wheel-drive version of the same model, chosen on farms needing maximum traction, is also available for $16,995.

The Sportsman 700 Twin EFI comes with unbelievable torque, smooth and responsive power, exclusive On-Demand All-Wheel Drive and long travel suspension with increased travel – and is now available for the unbelievably low price of $15,495, down $1500.

With the ideal combination of reliable power, smooth ride and off-road features not available on similar-price machines, the Magnum 4x4 range represents fantastic value for money. The price of a Magnum 330 4x4 has been slashed by $900 to $10,995, while the 500 – which comes complete with Visco-Lok – has been reduced by $1000 to $11,995.

Meanwhile the Ranger 4x4 off-road utility vehicle, the three-seater working wagon, is down $500 to $19,995. The 2WD version, Ranger TM, is down $1000 to $14,995.

“These are genuine reductions on the world’s toughest, hardest-working, most rideable ATV range,” said the NZ Retail Manager Manager of Polaris, Gary Ridden.

“Better still, some recent changes have seen the warranty extended to 2 years or 15,000km on most ATVs.”.

Polaris, the US company which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, totally designs, engineers, manufactures and markets its own ATVs, snowmobiles and other powersports products for distribution to 126 countries. Today Polaris has wholly-owned subsidiaries in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Great Britain, Norway and Sweden.

Polaris Industries is a $US1.8 billion turnover company listed on the New York Stock Exchange and noted as a Fortune 500 Company.
