RZR Trail Reviews
2021 RZR Trail Sport White Lightning is rated out of 5 by 78.
Rated 4 out of 5 by wasabihit from the trail machine for me The RZR trail ultimate has opened a whole new realm of possibilities for adventure in the Montana backcountry. My wife and i have experienced much more together than we could have on our adventure bikes. Smooth ride over extremely rough terrain while carrying plenty of gear to extend our getaways. stock, the RZR is fantastic, however better tires was a must along with a winch for getting stuck in snow and mud. I suggest cleaning the air filter after every ride because more debris is getting in than optimal. I am happy with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Beast Master from Outrageously Fun and Wild! This thing is a beast! The 50" size and the torque in this thing when you need to climb a in an area not recommended was awesome! Do beware of the not recommended trails. They are marked that way for a reason as we found out. The GPS is worth its wait in Gold. When you are in a new area, you are able to set your waypoint and get back to your vehicle without question. You are also able to see what trails you want to take and enjoy! There are many other features on the RZR but I will leave that for you to explore!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MichiganRyder from bad decision I am very disappointed in my new RZR Ultimate. As current owners of a 2012 RZR800 we are very happy with the quality and performance. So we decided it was time to upgrade, really bad choice. Our dealer has had the RZR more then we have. Constant issues with the electronics going out; speedometer, accelerator stopping (apparently there is a brake switch issue but no replacement part), engine light constantly coming on. Our tool bag came up missing while at the dealer and they don't know what happened to it. Now we don't have a charging cable.... The cabin and center console retains so much heat from the cooling system that we can't even go on trail rides; the console actually burned my foot when driving it.... I just want to get my money back... Any buyers?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tripps from ❤ Our Buggy! We decided to "start" looking at SXS as our first empty nest toy :) We went to VMS just looking, because we knew nothing about ORVs. We had just decided to pull the trigger on a purchase that morning. Our salesman warned us that orders were taking 4-6 months to arrive due to current world issues BUT he just got a new model that came in that very morning. We walked down to the Service Dept, it was a chassis & tires with parts all over the floor & the most gorgeous blue ever! 7 days later we drove it out of the dealership onto our trailer & hit the trails that day! We LOVE our Buggy! What a performing, quality machine! And it looks gorgeous! We get compliments everything we are out!! We will only purchase Polaris! Quality, performance, reputation and FUN!! We even purchased a Polaris auto pool cleaner because we are that loyal to Polaris! We are having a blast with our Buggy! We are even driving it across the Mackinaw Bridge @ the end of September "Trek the Mighty Mac" :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by 67flyer from Less than 100 miles and got engine light already Love the machine, however after the first ride got an engine and power steering light along with no speed readout on dash or ride command screen. Let set for a couple of hours and started it up again every thing back to normal. Took it for another ride the following weekend and once I got back and washed it then started it up again engine and steering lights and no speed readout again. Error codes both times were2 84 1. This time they did not clear. Had to schedule a repair 3 weeks out. Shop has now hopefully it gets fixed this week under warranty. Error codes point to speed control issue. Just up set I got only got 2rides. Now how long will the replacement last? Probably until the warranty runs out in 3 months. Will not be very happy if I have to keep replacing it with my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnee from Impressive Comfy Ride on our little 50 Inch!!! Love this little machine. Ride all day in comfort. Fits perfect on the Paiute 50 inch trails. Just put 705 miles on it; not one issue; except my wife wants to drive it all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barnard from Loving my RZR! The ability to go into tight locations. Just wish the lower a-arms was arched for better clearance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skier96 from AWSOME machine/ short on finishing detail I bought this RZR for my wife as a birthday gift and she loves it. I am very pleased with it even though we lost a speed sensor at the 13 hour mark, the dealer mad good on it and all is well. This is the 5th Polaris on our place and they have all been great, BUT I am VERY disappointed in the fact that Polaris no longer pays attention to the small details. It may seem petty but this RZR wasn’t cheap and there are no hub nut covers. Even my 2002 sportsman 400 came wit rubber covers over the hub nuts. When I picked it up from the dealer they said they don’t know why they weren’t on and couldn’t find them, I’ll order them right in( progressive has GREAT customer service). As it turns out the couldn’t get them because Polaris doesn’t offer them! If you are cheeping out on something as small as that, what else are you cheeping out on???

Rated 1 out of 5 by bbpainting from Disappointed I bought this machine brand new and have really enjoyed the little bit of time I’ve actually been able to use it. It’s leaked transmission fluid from the start and also I’ve had to add coolant twice already. Brought machine into Polaris dealer and apparently the transmission wasn’t assembled properly. Will be in the shop for a couple more weeks waiting for parts. Not what I expected for a new machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Idahopilgrim from Ultimate Trail Rzr. Get better every year. Really enjoying my 10 th Rzr. Great machine but I got to tell you the Polaris Glass Rzr windshield with the bottom vent does a poor job of venting. Vent needs to be larger to help with the vortex of sucking dust in. Windshield would be much better if it would fold up or down. Not very happy with the soft Rzr upper doors or rear lean panel either. Polaris you can no much better with this cab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pure from Nice ride, bad dealer ship My 2021 RZR 900 is a great machine. I bought it from Edge performance, and they had terrible service. I even got my machine with a empty gas tank, so when I got it and in loaded it and wanted to take it for a quick ride before leaving out of state for vacation, I went down the road and luckily I saw my gas gauge was only 1 bar. I turned around loaded it up and had to wait till I got back to fill it up then take it out. Great machine, horrible dealership. Makes me worry about taking in the machine for oil changes at the dealership. I was also advised by the dealership they do not come standard with center wheel hub covers, so my bolt with the cotter pin in the center of the rim is exposed to the elements and is slightly rusting after having it just for months now. After paying a large amount of money for a machine, now I have rusty center hubs and have to spend more money to get center hub covers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brian P. from Good little side by side Well made side by side. Has decent power and the narrow width lets you get into tight spaces a RZR 1000 won’t fit. My biggest gripe is I think Polaris should include 14” rims and larger tires. The stock tires are mediocre at best. The 12” rims look ok but also look small. I am shopping to replace them and I just got the side by side 3 weeks ago. More money to spend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Blacksheep from Still breaking in. Solid machine so far. Still breaking it in. Haven’t had a chance to hit any trails yet, just our local gravel roads. It does like to wander on the gravel more than my cat trail did, but I’m thinking increasing air pressure on tires will help that. We did have an issue with the drivers side rad hose wearing a hole by rubbing on the frame on the first ride. That sucked. Lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lil Willy from Great purchase Originally was going for an upgrade for my son for a 570 from his 170. Instead we purchased a RZR Trail Ultimate, more than what we wanted but happy we did. Whole family enjoys the ride. Navigation is awesome, handling is great!!! Highly recommend to anyone looking to purchase. Only downside is waiting for accessories to be available in Canada

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carl#7 from This trail size RZR goes anywhere! We have taken our RZR on the desert, on mountain trails and on some pretty extreme climbs up mountainsides that are probably better suited for larger machines with more ground clearance. We haven't found anything it can't do. The ride command is awesome, you can't get lost and the GPS details are amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trail Riding Ron from Ample Power, Traction, & Safety I've ridden the Yamaha Grizzly for 15 years and recently converted to the Polaris 50" RZR. The RZR will go anywhere the Grizzly would go. Because of the longer wheel base and lower center of gravity, it's much safer than the Grizzly. Add to this, the seat belt and roll bar cage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr Pickle from Met Expectations I’ve wanted an off-road vehicle for 20 years. Finally got the chance to get one. The RZR was my first choice, and one just came in to the dealership. I bought it within hours of it being available. Great ride, easy to drive, and can handle all the trails I’ve been to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike1949 from Good could be better The 2023 Polaris Razor Trail should have a better air intake and a foam oiled filter that can be washed. Also the rear roll bar should have a better design to “ not” restrict access to storage area! I had to remove the rear roll bar to get my storage box on the machine!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2disappointd from Not as good as I expected The unit was delivered with a faulty belt and the steering wheel was about 30 degree off from straight. Both required me to take it back to the dealership costing me time and money. The unit is MUCH louder than expected (85 dB at idle).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jly42 from 2021 Rzr Trail Sport Not a bad machine at all for the price. Does have stability problems you would expect with a 50” side by side. Does not lack power though. We keep up with the best of them and has went everywhere I have tried to take it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Murtha33 from Can’t keep it working Broke the down the first and second ride. Ended up needing a new power steering. Worked on the 3rd ride. Tried to take it out for the fourth and the seat belt light won’t go off so it stays in limp mode

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chuck 32 from It’s a fun machine but could be better Tearing the machine down to insulate the cab so it didn’t get so hot was a pain it should come with the cab better insulated you could boil water in the cup holders

Rated 4 out of 5 by Uncle Chuck from Great fun, way too loud! Terrific performance, obnoxiously loud! I can get to beautiful places, but the wildlife is gone when I arrive because they heard me coming a mile away...literally!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sonny & Peg from 2021 RZR Trail 900 Great handling machine. We have put 400+ miles on it. Does better on fuel than expected. Only complaint, the gray hood, I would like white or blue hood better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Racer from Best RZR to date Significant ride quality,radio and ride command. Can't believe it's better than the first RZR I purchased. Back up camera is also very useful.
