Polaris announced this week that is has introduced the industry's first single seat youth off-roader with a full protective cab frame. The new Polaris ACE 150 EFI is intended to offer children ages ten and up, the same thrills that the larger, adult ACE vehicles do.

The new ACE 150 EFI comes with a comprehensive safety suite. First up, the 150cc, Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI) engine has four speed-limit modes to allow a parent to control speeds and gradually increase them as a rider's abilities mature. The vehicle starts out being limited to 10 mph. Adults can adjust that top speed to 15 mph, 22 mph or 29 mph. Other safety gear includes LED daytime running lights, seatbelt, side nets, whip flag and a parking brake.

Craig Scanlon, Polaris Off-Road Vehicles Chief Retail Officer, commented on the new ACE 150 EFI, saying, “Polaris continues to innovate its youth line up to provide a wide variety of safe, fun options for kids. The new Polaris ACE 150 EFI is another way for families to share the off-road riding experience together.”

 

Kids grow fast, and Polaris thought ahead. The ACE 150 EFI has the adjustability required to grow with the driver. This includes extra headroom, tilt steering wheel and pedals, and adjustable bucket seat. Like all of Polaris' vehicles this is a very capable machine. The 150 EFI features 6-in. of rear suspension travel, 9-in. of ground clearance, and large 22-in tires. Options include poly roof, half-windshield, and front and rear bumpers.

The Polaris ACE 150 EFI ships to dealers this month and will retail for $3,799

Reminds me of the 1978-1984 Honda Odyssey FL250, 1985 FL350 and the 1989-1990 Honda Pilot FL400. Just not as powerful

      The Cape Cod National Sea Shore has some amazing dunes. You can't drive an off-road vehicle on them, you can't ride a mountain bike on them, and you can't walk on the dunes, but boy are they something.  As the noose tightens on outdoor motorsports a handful of the world's best locations remain accessible, many because they are held in private ownership. One of these special places is the Glamis Dunes in California also known as the Imperial Sand Dunes in California located East of San Diego and West of Phoenix. You may not think you have seen this area but you have if you've ever watched movies like Star Wars or the Scorpion King.
      Polaris has just acquired 166 acres in this special place. The company has purchased the Glamis Store from the LeBlanc family. The property has been the host to Camp RZR for the past six years and the Polaris relationship goes back much farther than that. The October event is called by Polaris, " The kick off to the dunes riding season, and a celebration of the riding culture and comradery that is created among riders." About 20,000 riders attended last year.  Yes, 20,000.  Polaris taking ownership means that the event will not just continue in the future, but it will be expanded. 
      “For the rider and dunes community, the iconic Glamis Beach Store represents the epicenter of the dunes, so when we were looking for a location to hold our first Camp RZR we only had one place in mind,” said Craig Scanlon, chief retail and marketing officer, Polaris Off-Road Vehicles. “To the riders, community and many at Polaris, Glamis is an extraordinary place and our goal is to continue the unique aspects that make this area special and to help it thrive.”  Polaris has acquired the property from the Estate of the Beach Store founder, Eugene LeBlanc. “When my father first opened the doors of the Glamis Beach Store in 1979 his mission was to provide Glamis visitors a home base stocked with all the amenities they need while enjoying the dunes,” said Jeannie “Mama Jeannie” LeBlanc. “It only makes sense to partner with the leader in the off-road recreational community to carry on the traditions that he created.”

      If you are in an office and need to just make it to 5:00, shut the sound off on your monitor and click the video below. You deserve a little mental time out, no?
      $13K.  Goes on sale this month.  Polaris Razor RS-1.

      Discussion topic for the comments; How the heck does Tanner Faust make that thing slide sideways without rolling it?! Maybe the double brake pedal helps?

      Ok, if you are offended by fun videos that are used as marketing ploys, then click away. If you'd to like to see an awesome Polaris side by side being driven by driving pro Tanner Foust, then watch the video.

      Polaris has announced the changes and updates to its 2017 Slingshot line. There are two noteworthy new developments to the open-air three-wheeled motorcycle line. First, the Polaris Slingshot SLR is a new top-trim level. Polaris says the SLR is the Slingshot's "...most premium model in the line-up and the boldest Slingshot yet." Two-tone paint and forged aluminum wheels are just some of what make that trim special. The SLR will be available in two customer colors, Orange Madness and Turbo Silver.

      The Slingshot also is getting a cool new partial enclosure called Slingshade. The net effect of the shade is a coupe-like look and a cooler driving experience on hot sunny days. The Slingshade is just one of 31 new accessories the Polaris Slingshot line will add in 2017.
       
      The 2017 Polaris Slingshot starts at $21,999, the upscale Slingshot SL rings in at $25,499, and the Slingshot SLR starts at $28,499.
