Polaris Sportsman WV850 ATV – Don’t think of it as an All-Terrain Vehicle. Think of it as a tank.

Polaris Sportsman WV850 ATV

The king of all-terrain vehicles has been unleashed on the world. All others can go home now. The tires alone are more awesome than the ATV that’s currently parked in your garage.

There’s no doubt about it. The Polaris Sportsman WV850 ATV is a rich-boy toy, falling into that elite category of ‘if you have to ask about the price, you can’t afford it,’ but it’s a totally sweet rich-boy toy that’s totally worth the price tag.

Based on military specifications, the Sportsman comes with all-wheel drive, steel racks, a military-grade single-speed transmission, a solid-steel exoskeleton, and non-pneumatic TerrainArmor tires that won’t go flat, even if a .50-caliber round is fired into them.

All that macho toughness doesn’t mean you sacrifice comfort though because the ATV is also equipped with electronic power steering, upgraded shocks, and wider foot wells.

Ready for the sticker shock? This bad boy can be yours for $14,999, which really isn’t too bad when you consider that you’ll probably never have to buy tires for the thing, regardless of what kind of abuse you put it through.

    • If you have to ask… :)

  • This version of the Sportsman compared to other versions is not all that much more in price. At $15k, it’s not that bad.
