POLARIS SCRAMBLER 850 4×4

— Testing the new breed of sport quads — 

By the staff of Dirt Wheels… 

Most sport quad manufacturers have taken our pride and joys off of their assembly lines. In fact, only Yamaha currently produces traditional sport quads with manual transmissions and solid rear axles. The days of sliding corners on a variety of brand-new sport 450s are disappearing, and a new breed of sport quad has come to take the spotlight. Polaris calls their Scrambler a “sport performance ATV,” and, honestly, we don’t feel they are wrong.

Yes, it’s true that the machine has four-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. The Scrambler 1000 even comes with electronic power steering, but until you ride one of these beasts, you won’t believe us when we say it’s the new definition of a sport quad.

ENGINE PERFORMANCE

The Polaris Scrambler 850 isn’t shy in the power department. It’s a twin-cylinder, EFI, 850cc, liquid-cooled four-stroke with 78 horsepower. And when you push that thumb-operated throttle, you can feel every horse. The engine is paired to a fully automatic continuously variable transmission. There are high and low forward gears, neutral, reverse and park controlled by a shifter on the right side of the gas tank.

Polaris is proud of its On-Demand all-wheel-drive system. This 4×4 system only sends power to the front wheels once it senses the rears slipping. If the system didn’t perform as well as it does, we would be bummed that the Scrambler 850 doesn’t come with a true locking front differential.

You can switch between rear and all-wheel drive through an easy-to-operate thumb-operated selector switch. The surface area of the throttle lever is large and easy to manipulate for hours of riding.

SMOOTH SUSPENSION

We know that our first thought when someone says sport quad are images of roosting through the dunes on a TRX250R or sliding sideways through corners on a YFZ450R. We feel the heavier AWD Scrambler’s engine and suspension performance qualify as a sport quad. It may not be as low to the ground as conventional sport quads, or nearly as light weighing in at 735 pounds, but its suspension handles the rough stuff better than you’d anticipate.

The front suspension boasts 9 inches of dual-A-arm-design travel controlled by spring-preload-adjustable shocks. Unfortunately, only the Scrambler XP 1000 comes with compression-adjustable shocks. The back of the machine has a dual-A-arm independent rear suspension system and preload-adjustable shocks. The rear travel numbers are 10.25—more or equivalent travel than a number of solid-axle sport quads!

The rear end soaks up rough chop that a straight-axle and swingarm setup can’t handle, which provides less fatigue on long rides. Due to the weight of the 850, it doesn’t handle whoop sections as well as the 450 that is half the weight. Also, jumping a hefty 4×4 machine isn’t as confidence-inspiring but it has the capability.

HANDLING BUSINESS

The machine corners quite well for its size, and the bar isn’t difficult to turn. Our biggest gripe is that the 850 doesn’t come with power steering. We thoroughly enjoyed the smooth and light feeling of our 2017 Scrambler 1000’s EPS. However, the 850 isn’t difficult to pilot. You only notice a lack of power steering in tight trail sections with lots of corners.

The 850 cockpit is roomy and slender from the gas tank to the running boards, at least in 4×4 terms. The handlebar position is tall enough for gangly riders, and the hand controls are comfortable for small or large hands. We wouldn’t mind a little bit of more floorboard traction for our feet, but we feel comfortable sitting or standing while riding.

The braking system employs a single brake lever on the left handlebar that actuates the hydraulic disc brakes on all four wheels, while a foot-controlled lever applies to the rear wheels only. The multi-brake lever is where a clutch lever is on manual-shift quads. The brakes are strong on the Scrambler, and it’s surprising how quickly you get used to the single lever on the handlebar to slow you down.

GET TO WORK

Sport 4×4 quads are becoming advanced enough to outperform solid-axle sport quads, but the 4x4s still reach back to their roots as work machines. The Scrambler 850 comes with a front storage rack that holds up to 25 pounds and a rear storage rack that can hold up to 50 pounds. Sitting directly below the rear rack is a 1-gallon cargo bin. A rear hitch receiver comes stock and can handle the Polaris’ towing capacity of 1500 pounds.

The Scrambler sips from the 5.25-gallon gas tank when you aren’t heavy on the throttle. Use all 78 ponies and the gas goes away fairly quickly, but not nearly as fast as the XP 1000.

Polaris included dual 50-watt headlights that have high- and low-beam modes for riding at night. There is a single taillight. The gauge has many features, including a speedometer, digital odometer, hour meter, tachometer, trip meters, fuel gauge and more.

RIDE TIME

Riding the Scrambler is a treat. The power of the 850 comes on strong in the mid- to top-end range, and it is perky down low but could use a little more torque. That could simply be a clutching alteration. Low range on the Scrambler is strong and works quite well on inclines and if you are scrawling over boulders, but we mainly run in high range.
The ProStar engine doesn’t have Active Descent Control or an Engine Braking System, but we don’t mind. We like to maintain momentum down hills when riding fast, and the lack of ADC and EBS lets the rider rely on the brakes to slow them down.

We have grown to enjoy the four-wheel braking. The brakes on the Scrambler are strong, but we wouldn’t mind even stronger brakes when we are coming into sections a little hot. The 850 weighs over 700 pounds, and slowing that down is no easy task.

Polaris designed their suspension on this machine quite well. It doesn’t come with the plush and adjustable upgraded shocks that the XP 1000 has, but they fare pretty well. We wouldn’t mind a smoother ride hitting larger whoops or chop, but the suspension soaks up the small chop fine.
The Scrambler has a high center-of-gravity feeling in corners, but it is generally easy to manage with added body language on the quad. The seat is easy to move around on and the plastics don’t get in the way.

FINAL THOUGHTS

The 2018 Scrambler 850 is priced at $9799 and comes in a Velocity Blue color scheme that incorporates Hi-Vis Yellow. Its bigger counterpart, the Scrambler XP 1000, comes with aluminum wheels, electronic power steering, a more powerful engine, dual exhausts and better shocks for a much heftier price tag of $13,299, which may be worth it to some. This machine will never provide the same feeling as the light, nimble solid-axle sport quads we love. There isn’t much like shredding a 450 or slinging roost on a 700, but the sport 4x4s thrive in the chop, rocks and roots that are the bane of solid-axle machines. That is why sport 4x4s are chipping away at the market and advancing every year.

You don’t have to be up in years to switch to a Polaris Scrambler. We can’t wait to see what improvements they make on it in the future. Maybe they can find a way to have it shed 100 pounds and handle even better! Go to www.polaris.com to check out the rest of their lineup of ATVs and UTVs.

TEST: Polaris Scrambler 850

Four-wheel-drive ATVs are a blast to trail ride, but riders who use them for fun or racing more than work know they have room for improvement. That’s why several manufacturers came up with sport 4x4s with less weight, better suspension and sportier styling to attract aggressive 4×4 riders. The Scrambler 850 has something else sport riders are sure to like—78 horsepower.

HOW DOES COST COMPARE?
The Scrambler 850 is $9499— that’s a thousand more than the base Sportsman 850 but $700 less than Can-Am’s 850cc sport 4×4, the Renegade 850. If you want even more power than the Scrambler 850 has, Polaris also has the Scrambler XP 1000 for $13,299. Can-Am’s Renegade 1000 costs $11,249.

The single-overhead-cam, eight-valve inline twin is super smooth and revs freely.

WHAT POWERS IT?
An 850cc inline twin with 78 horsepower—the same as a regular Sportsman 850—but a performance exhaust system helps the power build more quickly, and the Scrambler sounds meaner. It’s a single-overheadcam engine with eight valves. To make the Scrambler slim in the middle, the engine is mounted with the crankshaft in line with the frame and the transmission behind the engine, not beside it as on many ATVs. CanAm’s Renegade 850 makes the same outrageous 78 horsepower. The Scrambler 1000 and Renegade 1000 make 89 horsepower!

WHAT KIND OF TRANSMISSION DOES IT HAVE?
A dual-range, fully automatic, belttype continuously variable transmission (CVT). The transmission doesn’t have automatic engine braking to help slow the machine on downhills.

scrambler2_dsc_0091

WHAT IS THE 4WD SYSTEM LIKE?
Like other Polaris 4x4s it has selectable 2WD/4WD with an automatic-locking front differential. When you select 4WD the system stays in 2WD until the speed-sensing front differential detects the rear wheels turning faster than the fronts, at which point it locks the front differential.

Lighter weight, better suspension and cooler styling make sport 4x4s more fun for aggressive Lighter weight, better suspension and cooler styling make sport 4x4s more fun for aggressive riders than regular 4WD ATVs. The Scrambler 850 adds 78 horsepower to the formula.

HOW FAST IS IT?
Crazy fast. As long as there’s some kind of traction to be found when you punch the throttle, the Scrambler accelerates so hard you barely have a chance to feel it pick up speed before you’re moving much faster. Before you serve yourself a big helping of Scrambler throttle, it’s best to plan ahead. Have the machine pointed in a safe direction and hang on. The stepped seat will hold you in place pretty well, but why take chances?

HOW IS THE POWER DELIVERY ON THE TRAIL?
Fortunately, the Scrambler only acts like a nitro-burning dragster on the trail when you want it to—though in delicate, very low-speed situations the transmission’s rough engagement just off idle doesn’t help. As long as you have some sense of throttle control, the 850 is very cooperative, but it is cool how easy 78 horsepower makes steering with the throttle and wheelieing over obstacles. Less powerful machines can go most of the places the Scrambler can, but the 850’s huge amount of surplus power definitely makes the trip more entertaining.

The front suspension has 9 inches of travel, and the spring and damping rates are great for sport riding.

WHAT KIND OF SUSPENSION DOES IT HAVE?
Double-A-arm front suspension with 9 inches of travel. In the rear, double A-arms offer 10.25 inches of travel and a sway bar helps control body roll. Fairly basic spring preload-adjustable shocks are used front and rear, but the spring and damping rates are tuned for sport riding.

The rear suspension is well balanced with the front. It can handle fast trail riding, and it’s also comfortable at a casual pace.

HOW DOES THE SUSPENSION WORK?
It’s very good. Powerful sport-utility 4x4s can reach their suspensions’ limits pretty easily in aggressive riding, because they’re tuned for comfort at a more relaxed pace. Being a sport machine, the Scrambler’s suspension is set up for fast trail riding, so you can hit big bumps at speed without going through the travel. It also offers good control in whoops and on jumps as long as you respect the machine’s weight. At more than 750 pounds with fuel, you can’t muscle it around like a 450 sport quad. Even though the suspension handles hard riding well, ride comfort is very good. It won’t beat you up when you aren’t charging down the trail.

scrambler1_dsc_0082

HOW DOES IT HANDLE?
It’s stable, predictable and surprisingly agile for such a big, fast machine. The Scrambler 850 is only 18 pounds lighter than the Sportsman 850, and it doesn’t have power steering, so its handling is willing but not effortless. Fortunately, its power makes the machine feel lighter than it is. You can steer with the throttle or skim the front tires over obstacles in the trail, which helps it negotiate tight trails and challenging terrain in ways smaller, lighter machines can’t. With firmer suspension than sport-utility 4x4s, the Scrambler slides with better control.

HOW IS IT ON HILLS?
If tough hills are keeping you from trails you’d like to try, the Scrambler can enlarge your riding area. Tons of power that’s easy to apply and the Scrambler’s surefooted 4WD system will make you feel like a hill-climbing expert, even if you’re not. If you apply throttle on a downhill the transmission will provide engine braking, but it only acts on the rear wheels, so you do need some skill when descending really steep, slippery climbs. The Scrambler’s brakes are strong, but the linked front and rear brakes don’t give highly skilled riders as much freedom as separate front and rear brake controls.

Four-wheel drive lets you go places on the Scrambler that could get you stuck on a two wheel-drive sport quad

HOW DOES IT DO IN MUD AND WATER?
As far as what it can go through, it’s incredible. On this thing you don’t have to worry about having enough power, and there’s enough ground clearance for most situations. The 4WD system gets the power to the ground well, and there’s no speed limiter on the differential-lock system. That sporty bodywork gives the Scrambler rider less splash protection than a normal 4×4, but we know a few riders who don’t mind getting muddy when they ride in the mud.

A roomy seating area with a slim midsection gives the rider freedom and comfort.

HOW ARE THE DETAILS?
Most are well thought out while some need work. The range selector requires more effort than it should, and the range detents should be more positive. The transmission’s engagement just off idle is rough and unrefined, not what you want in sketchy trail situations or when loading the machine onto a truck or trailer.

The Scrambler is a sport machine, but it’s also a powerful 4×4, so it’s good Polaris didn’t forget how useful it can be. The small racks let it carry supplies for your ride or do hauling chores, and the battery, radiator and fuses are easy to reach under the removable front rack. There’s a small storage box below the rear rack. The receiver-type hitch makes the 850 ready to tow other machines, drag dirt roads or tow trailers. The engine is smooth and the stainless steel exhaust sounds good without being offensively loud. A slim midsection and a roomy rider’s area make moving around on the Scrambler while riding easy.

The stainless steel exhaust sounds great without being offensively loud, and it won’t rust.

WHAT IS OUR FINAL ANSWER?
Four-wheel-drive ATVs are fun on the trail, but less weight, better suspension and cooler styling make the Scrambler 850 sport 4×4 more fun. With 78 horsepower, the Scrambler 850 isn’t just a sport 4WD ATV; it’s a super-sport 4×4.

Scrambler 2016 850 review polaris

You, comrade sergeant, starting your valiant, as you now think, service, were too naive in that period of delusions of your young life. no, of course we can do something. as much as we can. But we are ordinary guys in camouflage, and it is not our business to break mossy stereotypes in a separate military unit.

However, each time it became more difficult, and not only because of fatigue. Of course, the psychologist saw everything perfectly, what the ironic smile that occasionally slipped on her face was talking about. But at the same time, she tried to pretend to be as serious as possible.
