Testing the 2022 Sportsman XP 1000 on the rocks. (Justin Coffey/)
We’ve completed our first look and ride test of the 2022 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 with Ride Command. It’s a solid performer, with the latest Ride Command GPS technology, an overwhelming amount of available power and torque, and a suspension that tamed the most rugged terrain we could throw at it.
ATV Rider image master Justin Coffey shot all of the action photos for the ride test, and when all was completed, we realized we just couldn’t let all the great photos left over go to waste. Here are those additional images, shot in the Arizona Sonoran Desert. Enjoy.
