MINNEAPOLIS (Jan. 5, 2018) – Polaris INDY®, the most legendary name in snowmobiling, is now the most inviting name on snow as Polaris introduces the new INDY EVO™, a trail-ready snowmobile built specifically for new riders. The INDY EVO™ delivers a comfortable, sporty and confidence-inspiring ride experience that will fuel a new rider’s passion for snowmobiling.
New riders need a sled built for them that’s the right size and offers easy, confidence-inspiring steering and handling. They want a sled with power they can control so they can confidently enjoy trailing riding with family and friends.
Perfect Fit for New Riders
Created using Polaris advanced design engineering, the INDY EVO™ is lower and narrower than a full-sized sled. Coupled with a lower seat height, this hunkered-down stance lowers the center of gravity to enhance the feeling of stability and confidence.
INDY EVO™ ergonomics are designed to fit a broad range of riders and positions them for ultimate comfort, control and confidence. The low, narrow bodywork provides outstanding visibility, yet delivers excellent wind protection with AXYS-style integrated airfoils and a wide range of windshield options.
Purpose-built, flat, low bars provide excellent leverage, and the easy throttle flipper accommodates hands of all sizes. The cockpit is roomy, providing ample knee room for the active INDY riding style.
Confident Handling, Easy Steering
The INDY EVO™ Independent Front Suspension is engineered for a stable yet effortless ride on trails. It features shocks designed and calibrated specifically for the INDY EVO™ chassis and the adjustable-stance IFS allows the sled to evolve with the rider.
The all-new INDY EVO™ ski was designed exclusively for this sled, plus delivers confident handling with reduced steering effort.
Just-Right Performance & Fun
The proven Polaris 550cc fan-cooled engine delivers just the right amount of power for new riders. Speed is electronically controlled to a maximum of 50 mph, and stage-tuning kits will be available to adjust the vehicle’s performance and ride as skills grow.
The INDY EVO™ is available in two models, with manual start or electric start.
Many Polaris accessories are available for the INDY EVO™ so riders can customize and personalize their sleds to suit their style, and optimize comfort, convenience and cargo solutions.
