  • CHASSIS: Pro-Ride Chassis
  • SUSPENSION: 144" Uncoupled Suspension, Race-Proven IFS, WALKER EVANS® Shocks
  • ERGOS/BALANCE: ProTaper® Handlebar, Right Hand Controls
  • POWERTRAIN: 800 Cleanfire® Engine, Lightweight Rotor & Jackshaft

800 Cleanfire® Engine

This liquid-cooled Cleanfire® engine with semi-direct injection (SDI) delivers outstanding throttle response and instant acceleration. These powerful, efficient engines produce the impressive power-to-weight ratios that performance riders demand. Cleanfire engines start easily and reliably and they calibrate automatically as the temperature and elevation change. These engines deliver impressive fuel economy in real-world riding situations, which, for Polaris riders, means aggressive, up-tempo riding, not low-rev lab conditions.

Right Hand Controls

A new, redesigned throttle block and a separate kill switch perch that can be positioned independently for improved ergos and ability to tailor your controls.

ALUMINUM BUMPER

Aluminum tube matched with extruded billet hangers create a bumper that is strong, light and trick. New snow flap is lightweight and features hand access for when you really dig it in.

PROTAPER® BARS

High-rise aluminum design and adjustable bar clamp create an optimum riding position that can be tailored to your riding style. Bar hooks and race-style master cylinder round out the purpose-built controls.

OPTIONAL SECURITY SYSTEM

Prevents unauthorized driveaway of idling sled, and can be installed by dealer on sleds with Pro-Ride Gauge.

WALKER EVANS® NEEDLE SHOCKS

Premium shocks with compression adjusters and remote reservoirs offer the best in tunability and fade-proof performance. Unique needle design uses hydraulic force at the end of the stroke to eliminate harsh bottoming.

HYBRID™ RUNNING BOARDS

The term Crossover Technology applies here: part RUSH and part RMK. Trail-ready foot stirrups combine with wide running boards, ideal for sitting or stand-up riding. Fishbone tunnel reinforcements standard.

144" Uncoupled Skid

Tipped up rails and rail reinforcements give this Assault a more nimble feel on-trail and added durability. A 15" x 144" x 1.352" Cobra Track for added flotation and off-trail performance.
