Polaris updated the original Sportsman models for 2011. These are slightly less expensive alternatives to the XP models. They offer on-demand 4WD, 1500 pounds of towing capacity and 300 pounds of combined rack capacity. The 800 has a twin-cylinder motor and still uses MacPherson strut front suspension. Notable 2011 updates include less bulky styling, Lock N Ride front and rear racks, a higher radiator location and XP-styled headlights.
