Speaking about Polaris’ Desert Storm Rally 2014 performance, Mr. Pankaj Dubey, Managing Director, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd., said, “Year after year Polaris has proved its dominance when its toughness and endurance quotient is tested in rallies like the Desert Storm. This year too we have proved why Polaris is among the global leader of ORV all over the world. The RZR® XP 900 has lived up to Polaris’ long-standing reputation of endurance, toughness and performance. Sportsman® 850 has also proved why it is ‘the’ vehicle for a terrain like this. A big thanks to the spectators at the rally who were so encouraging and cheered along our riders Raj Singh Rathore and Ankush Gulati. The rally was all about survival under excessive conditions but our riders performed impeccably under such extreme circumstances and also proved that if you want to win such competition, own a Polaris.”
