Polaris Adds Youth RANGER RZR to Model Year 2009 Line Up

What do you get when you combine the best-selling line of youth ATVs with the hottest side-by-side available? Introducing the new, youth RANGER RZR 170!

For youth riders 12 and up, the youth RANGER RZR 170 has a four-stroke, air-cooled, 169cc engine with electric start and an automatic transmission. Styled similar to its adult counterpart, the side-by-side has a sporty, aggressive look and holds a driver and passenger for double the fun.

Along with being an ultra-cool ride for kids, the youth RANGER RZR 170 includes all the safety features found on Polaris’ youth line up and more; a removable ignition key, electronic throttle safety control, daytime running lights, side nets, full cab frame, 3 point seat belts, color coded foot controls, parking brake, hydraulic disc brakes, and speed controls to enable adults to set a maximum speed control limit.

All Polaris Youth ATVs purchased from an authorized dealer come with a high-visibility whip flag, speed limiter and safety video. Accompanied with the Youth models is a DOT-approved helmet (2 helmets for the Ranger RZR 170) to teach kids the importance to wearing the proper safety gear.

Available early 2009 – Looks like Polaris is going to release these in very limited numbers, so expect that it could be tough to get your hands on one.
