With a base price of $ 5.699, the Polaris Sportsman 400 H.O. offers a lot of value for its money. It is reliable, fast and strong and on top of that it also delivers great ride and handling performances.

At the heart of the ATV lies a 4-stroke single cylinder engine with a capacity of 455 cc. The engine needs to deal with a weight of 688 lb (dry) and is fueled by a 4.1 Gal (15.5 L) fuel tank.

To be able to deal without problems with any type of terrain, the Polaris Sportsman 400 H.O. needed a set of long travel suspensions. Therefore, it is packed with front MacPherson struts and rear Dual A-arms which offer 11.25" of obstacle-clearing ground clearance.

You also get a set of rugged tires that measure 25 X 8-12; 489 up front and 25 X 10-12; 489 at the back.

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.

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 (or storage cover).

Aggressive Design With Lock & Ride
An aggressive body style gives the Sportsman an intimidating look and clear sight lines for the driver. Integrated front storage and Lock & Ride® compatible rear rack make it easy to carry gear.

Raised Radiator Placement
Radiator is mounted high in the chassis and 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.

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.
