by Guillaume Rivard ,

Polaris' trailblazing sport side-by-side vehicle has enjoyed huge success since launching seven years ago. And for 2015, it gets even better.

Meet the new 2015 Polaris RZR S 900
With the new 75-hp ProStar engine, Polaris promises to deliver the power and acceleration that fans have been waiting for in a 60" RZR. In fact, they've boosted torque 14% and increased output by 40% over the RZR S 800. The power-to-weight ratio is also up from 5.2hp to 6.1hp/100lbs. The net result is 13% quicker acceleration (0-65km/h in just over 4 seconds).

This 875cc twin-cylinder with DOHC, four valves per cylinder, a wet sump, and a lightweight design is specifically intended for RZR usage. Once again, it is optimized to work with the vehicle's intake and exhaust systems, and specifically tuned to provide maximum power without compromising drivability for sharp, trail-focused performance.

The engine is mated to an automatic transmission and true on-demand AWD system that automatically engages all four wheels when you need more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when you don’t.

Expect improved performance from your 2015 Polaris RZR S 900
With 12.25" of front travel and 13.2" in the rear, and Fox Performance Series 2.0 Podium X shocks, the RZR S 900's suspension can be tuned for exactly the way you ride, Polaris says, and features new geometry designed for specific types of terrain.

A 2" increase in wheelbase (now 79" long) and 1.3" increase in rear track width, paired with front and rear dual A-arms, contribute to superior handling and stability. Meanwhile, a full 12.5" of ground clearance will allow you to navigate rocky trails and everything they throw at you with confidence.

You'll also be able to count on new 27" 8-ply GBC Dirt Commander tires with better side bite, stiffer sidewalls, better tracking through corners, and increased durability.

Other 2015 Polaris RZR S 900 highlights
Already boasting a short 16' turning radius, the 2015 Polaris RZR S 900 benefits from a 20% quicker steering response with an improved 2-turn lock-to-lock steering ratio.

The new body style on the RZR S 900 will give you plenty of room to get in and out. The cockpit offers an additional 1" of legroom and new bolstered bucket seats with Dryseat technology to keep everyone dry and comfortable on long adventures. Moreover, the new driver and passenger side removable floor drains make it simple to wash debris and mud away.

The 2015 Polaris RZR S 900 starts at $16,699 in White Lightning trim. Models equipped with electronic power steering (available in Black Pearl, Havasu Red Pearl, and Titanium Matte Metallic) require an extra $2,000.
