Polaris Industries Inc., the world leader in off-road and All-Terrain Vehicles, has bagged its first commercial order in India from Gujarat Police. The order was given by Gujarat Government for its model RZR S 800.
The RZR S is powered by the same 760cc high-output, twin cylinder, water-cooled, four-stroke engine that powers the RZR 800, which is reported to produce 55 horsepower. With the RZR S listed at 1,022 lb. dry , Polaris boasts a 0-35 mph time of 3.8 seconds. In previous testing out west, we have had the RZR S up to 56 mph and still gradually climbing.
