no its cause the S 900 is lighter than the others. with 88 hp it will
be getting to close to the 1000 , and they dont want to incroch on the 20000 grand machine...  Rolling Eyes

Was about to pull the trigger on an 900 4 seater. Now I will have to wait and see what they do. I don't really want the 1000 4.

My S was down due to electrical issues so I went to Norris's to find he had two of the new 900 S's (the red one was done sold) so I picked up the black Pearl! After a quick walk around I got to say from the looks of it Polaris did GOOD! All the weak links seem to be addressed and improved upon. I do wish it had the 88hp but I couldn't wait till they upped it!

The chasis looks to be a thick walled tubing that travels around the front of the bike to make a sturdy bumper mount and protect the radiator at the same time, another biggy is the a-arms now have a dual bolt setup instead of the single which should make life easier on the bushings, its got a full size car type battery, a much better glove compartment latch, Slider on the driver side seat, seat backs adjustable up or down a couple inches from the looks of it, Polaris claims an inch more leg room but honestly it feels like much more, fox 2.0 shocks, the rear sway bar is going to be real easy to remove seeing it right on the back, actual tie-rod ends, easy access engine compartment, air box is now in the center above the motor and no longer above the wheel, and best of all the 27" Dirt Commanders from the factory! They must have built this machine for ME.. lol I think the Polaris site says a new awd setup but the front diff looks the same as my 800 s so I don't know what the different is or where it is. So far I love it but we will see! And I am sure I am forgetting something..

That's what I'm hoping Chris. Really not wanting the size or the price tag of the 1000.

I got out and did a little riding today and all I can say is this thing is far and above my expectations! And finally a bike with good tires so I don't have to change them! But it does need wheels... The ride is awesome, it is unreal all the changes from its predecessor!

Nice pics , Will it do a burnout on pavement...  lol! 

You need to paint the yellow springs. The only person who likes yellow stuff
is Ronnie , and we know he has no SAC.....  729242 

I can't wait til he comes and reads this......  lol!

I do wish they would of put the rear bars back on ....  yes1

Thanks brother, I assume they will have an option for the add on cage, seeing it has the mounting points on the rear of the upper cage already. I wish it was included, it needs a rear bumper and cage combo.

First ride on the RZR S 900! Onboard cam!

I got out today looking to answer a couple questions and found a few more interesting facts on this new machine.

First the harness bar is 1 3/4" like the rest of the cage
2. As for top speed I hit 72 today at 7800rpm (on level ground) 0-50 is quick with a slowing down from 50-60 and slowing more from 60-70 but 70-72 took a little time.. I would say 70 is tops but I never felt a limiter.
3. total width outside tire to outside tire I got 61.5" front and rear (including tire bulge).
4. the outer rear bushings now have grease fitting!
5. ground clearance measured 11 3/4" rear and 12 3/4 front (all stock)

Am I missing something?

Looks great. I'm glad I have waited to update from my 800S. Never liked how fragile the XP 900 seemed or the trailing link for trails.
