Polaris seems to be working on a single-seat version of its acclaimed RZR machines.

Sketches show that this machine would be quite compact and light. It likely would not be able to hold Polaris' big-bore engines, so we might see a half-liter-class power unit driving the single-seater instead.

It isn't even clear if such a vehicle would be profitable for Polaris though. Putting this single-seater into production would be a risk for the company.

Would you guys be interested in a single-seater ATV? Do you think there is enough demand for such a vehicle to be profitable?

This looks awesome, i would love to have one just to mess around in. It should be a good seller as it will be cheaper. What should we expect pricing to be like?

guaranteed its for racing applications. SxS racing is becoming extremely popular, and a smaller compact class would make more sense, especially something that could be run in stadiums like sport ATV's or MotoX. Probably won't even be sold to us...

I can see this thing as a dune buggy. i'd love to ride it down some huge sand dune in the middle of the desert. No desert up here in Canada really though, so I think that will stay a pipe dream.

I think people would buy this as a fun toy to drive around town, trails, and tracks. There is definitely a market, especially if it is significantly cheaper because its a one-seater.

one seater is exactly the reason it wont sell. SxS are for 2 person ATVing, a 1 person SxS is an oxymoron...

its for racing, to get SxS into X games and nonsense like that... definitely wont be cheaper.

does anyone think the millitary could be buying a bunch of these to turn into vehicles they can use out in the field? I've seen some like it in the past.

thats possible as well, they do already make these for our boys overseas.






Wow, i never knew that, it's good to see Polaris has a lot of involvement in the military, i guess there's a good chance we can see single seaters being bought as 'fleet' for the army.

don't knock the dune buggy. its a crap load of fun.
even more fun when you mount guns on the front for your buddy to play with LOL. Aside from the war bits those fekkers have the most fun. Think about it, they get to tool around the desert at high speed in purpose built buggys with explosives and fire arms.... Video Game much...

Wonder if they do a mini tank version of the Brutus ;)

Would people be more likely to buy this in pairs so that they can ride them with friends? While this would be fun by yourself, it would be missing a little something having o ride by yourself all the time.

Cheaper for one, but not as much fun unless you buy two.
