For 2012, Polaris is offering five youth models based upon the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America’s (SVIA) Youth ATV categories; the RANGER RZR 170, Phoenix 200, Sportsman 90, Outlaw 90 and Outlaw 50.

Y-12+ age riders will have three models to choose from: the RANGER RZR 170, Sportsman 90 and Outlaw 90, which are all available for riders 13 years old and up. The Y-6+ age group will have the Outlaw 50. The Outlaw models are available in White/Boardwalk Blue and a Pink Limited-Edition model. The Sportsman 90 is available in Sage Green.

For the T age group (transitional riders 14 years old and up), Polaris will offer a Big Wheel Kit for the RANGER RZR 170. The kit provides bigger aluminum wheels, larger tires, different sprocket and chain for increased speed (up to 35 mph/56.3 kph), skid plate, T warning decals, and a 25 percent increase in ground clearance to 7.5 in/19.1 cm.

The RANGER RZR 170, Sportsman 90, Outlaw 90 and Outlaw 50 will continue to include a wide variety of safety features such as an adjustable throttle limiter to enable adults to set a maximum speed control limit, daytime running lights to increase daytime visibility, full floorboards and heat shields. Other vehicle features include an electric start, automatic transmission, 4-stroke engine, and long travel suspension on the Sportsman 90. The RANGER RZR 170 will continue to have seatbelts, color-coded pedals, parking brake, new side nets and will be available in Indy Red and a Polaris Pursuit Camo Limited Edition.

Polaris’ entry-level Phoenix 200 also is available to the T age group. Its larger chassis can complement some of the riders in this age group better than the 90cc units, and the vehicle will be speed limited to 20 mph/32.2 kph as delivered, 30 mph/48.3 kph intermediate, 38 mph/61.2 kph unrestricted. The 20 mph/32.2 kph and 30 mph/48.3 kph speeds also are throttle limited. The model is available in Boardwalk Blue for 2012.

All youth models purchased from an authorized dealer come with a high visibility whip flag, speed limiter and safety video. Accompanied with these models is a DOT- approved helmet (two for RANGER RZR 170) to teach kids the importance of wearing the proper safety gear. In the U.S., dealers provide safety training for parents and rider with every purchase.

Polaris Youth models lead the way with safety features which make them one of the best-selling youth lines available. Adult supervision is required for all riders under 16.
