With international travel off the cards for the foreseeable future, the Polaris General XP 1000 Trailhead Edition might be a prudent investment for some local adventure. Sure, it’d be great to be ripping a jetski around Phuket right about now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a high-octane holiday a little closer to home.
The new Polaris General XP 1000 Trailhead Edition is a four-wheeled pocket rocket, designed to withstand just about anything you might want to do in it – without sacrificing speed. Available in either a two or four-seat configuration, Polaris decided to get their base model General ATV and see how far they could upgrade it.
Capable of floating like a butterfly while still stinging like a bee thanks to its ProStar 1000 four-stroke DOHC two-cylinder engine mated to an automatic gearbox, this beastly off-roader also boasts an electric fuel injection system. We’re talking 100 horsepower, which is more than enough grunt for whipping through the forest.
The top-line specs don’t stop there, however, offering a very comfortable ride as well as a quick one thanks to the shock absorbers from the Walker Evans Velocity Series, as well as a set of 30-inch Pro Armor Crawler XG Tires. It also has more than two tons of towing capacity via an HD winch and synthetic rope and can also carry more than 250kg on its cargo rack.
While all of that makes it sound like it only offers the most aggressively spartan extras, it also has a few sweet mod-cons to remind you of home. The General XP 1000 has a built-in touchscreen computer that delivers GPS mapping, software to keep track of your buddies in their ATVs, as well as a Rockford Fosgate audio system to keep the vibe levels high.
The Polaris General XP 1000 Trailhead Edition starts at $36,300 – check out the details in the link below.
