The 2018 Polaris RZR RS1 Single-Seater Is A Hard-Charging Trail Riding Experience

Sick of a side-by-side riding experience? Feeling a little antisocial? Then the 2018 Polaris RZR RS1 single-seater was made for you.

The RZR RS1 is not only for antisocial riders, it 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 sightlines 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.

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 Polaris 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
Polaris 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.
