Displacement is the only significant difference between the Sportsman 550 and 850. It offers dual A-arms front and rear, and the same Active Decent Control engine braking as the 850. Also like the 850, it is available with power steering. This year it gets more splash protection, a 12-pound weight reduction and a tougher/grippier seat. The EPS model now features the same 5.25-gallon tank as the non-EPS models.
