We punish the RZR XP 900. It laughs in our face

There’s very little reason I can find to take myself off roads. I like traction. Slow crawling off-roading hasn’t been my thing ever; its uncomfortable, tyres burst, SUVs get ruined and you just can’t come out clean. But that’s with SUVs because they are just as capable as they are not, weight and size rob them off the agility and maneuverability and so the potential for fun in challenging terrain is curtailed to a large extent. 

 

But today is different. I’m raring to go and waiting outside an off-road course even before my terrain destruction tool arrives. Very nonchalantly, a guy rolls into the scene driving over seemingly large boulders of concrete and parks in front of me. And there it is, the Polaris RZR XP 900.

The XP 900 is top dog in the Polaris range here, at least for a bit till the XP 1000 takes over. It’s a daunting vehicle, the XP 900, even before I step into the driver’s seat. Form certainly follows function to the T, the only creature comfort I see is a windscreen and a very rudimentary wiper fitted to it. The XP 900 is purpose built to get you across any terrain or no terrain with relative ease that’s otherwise unmatched this side of a battle tank. There’s very little computer trickery that we see among modern SUVs giving it that capability though. Sheer brawn, ingenious design and rugged engineering are the XP 900’s assets in the field. But all that’s what I’ve heard of, and we don’t believe in hear-say, do we? We don’t, and so the drop-off driver is out of the vehicle and I’m strapped in turning the ignition on.

The Polaris RZR XP 900 is a certifiably crazy vehicle that will completely alter your concept of off-roading. There is no terrain too tough for this Polaris and its astonishing prowess off the beaten path is truly worth experiencing as we found out.
