Polaris introduced the RANGER RZR 170 in 2009 and for 2011, they have added a Big Wheel Kit as an option for T-14+ riders.
Big Wheel Kit adds aluminum wheels, larger tires, different drive and driven sprockets plus O-ring chain, skid plate, warning decals and increased ground clearance to 7.5 in/19.1 cm.
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.
