Polaris India to participate in 8th Defexpo India 2014Side by Side: The RZR® SW comes with a powerful 800cc twin EFI engine which cranks out 55HP and a top speed of 109 KPH. An on-demand All Wheel Drive (AWD) engages all four tires when the rear wheel slips and forward traction is required, making it ideal for slippery and hard to manoeuvre terrains.

ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle): The Sportsman® MV comes with a powerful 850cc 4-stroke SOHC Twin Cylinder Gas Engine that cranks out 77 hp. It has the capacity to carry 91 kg of gear on the front rack and up to 181 kg of gear on the back. This makes it the only ATV in the world with the highest rack capacity.

Snowmobile: The Widetrak LX is purpose-built to tow, haul and get to where the work needs to be done. Full featured sleds with Hi-Low transmissions, cargo racks, reverse and of course, like the name says, an extra wide track — 20″ of flotation to be exact.

Speaking about Polaris India participation in the Defexpo 2014, Mr. Pankaj Dubey, Managing Director, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd., said, “The Defexpo is an ideal opportunity for us to showcase our line of Defence vehicles. Our military vehicles over the years have received an overwhelming response all over the world.
