Most Agile RZR Ever Built, Features 110 HP and Industry First Single-Seat SxS to Deliver the Unique Combination of Power Meeting Precision

MINNEAPOLIS (February 1, 2018) – Polaris is putting every open space and green-, desert- or mountain-trail on notice with the arrival of the world’s first single-seat RZR, the RZR RS1. The all-new RZR RS1 solo-cockpit format delivers a heightened sense of control and takes the hard-charging trail riding experience to another level, thanks to the perfect balance of power and precision.

The RZR RS1 is the ideal machine for a real driver’s driver looking to push beyond their limits, free from care or concern of a backseat driver. The single-seat center-of-mass position unlocks high-visibility sight-lines to oncoming terrain and provides increased balance and feel within the chassis. The race-inspired driver ergonomics and new steering position create extra room for active arm and leg movement. The RZR RS1 is also equipped with a new brake system, giving drivers the option of traditional single-foot action or rally-inspired two-foot performance.

“The thing that you notice, right away with the RZR RS1, is that it’s much more of a driver’s machine, and it really ties you more in the driving experience” said Tanner Foust, 3-time World Rally Cross Champion. “You have center-cockpit, you have the involvement in seeing the tires, and you have everything great about the fun of driving, taken up a notch. Personally, I think the RZR RS1 is about the gnarliest little wicked beast of a machine, that I have ever driven.”  

The ultra-nimble 64” width RZR RS1 features a 110-HP ProStar 1000 H.O. 4-Stroke DOHC Twin Cylinder, the RZR XP® 1000’s suspension, upgraded drivetrain and compact, 83-inch wheelbase. The new precision-balanced chassis features a rear-mounted, dual-fan radiator for maximum engine cooling and a new race-hardened drivetrain for durability and instantaneous power. The RZR RS1 also adopts the trailing-arm suspension of the RZR XP 1000, to absorb unrelenting obstacles for the smoothest possible driving experience as you scythe through the most twisting of trails.  

The RZR RS1 boasts 20 vehicle-specific accessories and comes in White Lightening and Black Pearl. The performance and power packed RZR RS1 starts at a price of just $13,999 and will be available in dealerships in February.

Stay tuned!



  1. same old polaris. new machine TOO WIDE OF A WHEEL BASE 64″. how is any one going to trail ride this machine! come on make something like this only not as wide as this one. 64″ is much to wide for trails ( woods ). the rzr900xc would be a great trail machine even at 55″. now polaris doesnt make it any more. some people would like to ride trails not sand or muddy water holes or logging roads. true atving is ( in my opinion ) is riding in the woods ( mts. ) hatfield mccoy,adirondacks, & many private riding parks.
