2013 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO Bright White Features and Benefits

Hardest Working

SPORTSMAN 500 H.O. BEST-SELLING AUTOMATIC 4X4 ATV* - With its legendary smooth Sportsman ride and long list of distinctive Polaris features, the Sportsman 500 H.O. is a great value. No wonder it’s still the best-selling automatic 4x4 ATV of all time.

ON-DEMAND TRUE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) - True AWD keeps you moving, automatically engaging all four wheels when you need more forward traction and reverting back to 2WD when you don’t. Other ATVs use a limited-slip differential, engaging only three wheels.

AGGRESSIVE DESIGN WITH LOCK & RIDE - A new, more aggressive body style gives the Sportsman an intimidating look and clear sight lines for the driver. Integrated front stroage and Lock & Ride compatiable rear rack make it easy to carry gear.

INTEGRATED FRONT STORAGE - The most integrated storage of any ATV. The 6.5 gallon capacity lets you stow-away loads of gear and still have access to it, even with items tied to the deck.

RAISED RADIATOR PLACEMENT - Radiator is mounted 3" higher in the chassis an angled rearward to keep it out of mud and you on the trail longer.

Big Towing Power - The Sportsman lives up to its Hard Working reputation with a 1,225 lb. towing capacity, so you can tow trailers loaded with material and equipment.

 

Smoothest Riding

HIGH GROUND CLEARANCE - A full 11.25" of obstacle-clearing ground clearance lets you tackle some of the tougher terrain that comes your way.

LEGENDARY SMOOTH INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION (IRS) - The Sportsman was the world’s first ATV with IRS, a feature that made it as popular as it is today. Its rock-solid design has 9.5" of travel to minimize body roll and keep the ride smooth.
