2018 Polaris Sportsman 850 Touring vs. Can-Am Outlander MAX XT 850: By the Numbers
The 2018 Polaris Sportsman 850 Touring and Can-Am Outlander MAX XT 850 are two of the premier two-up ATVs in the industry to we decided to see how they compare…by the numbers.
ATVs have always been single-person machines, even though the idea of having someone jump on the back and riding with you is something that has been done for decades. The manufacturers took notice and some started offering machines with longer wheelbases and specialized seating that allows for a passenger to ride along in a safe way. A two-up machine is an idea borrowed from the snowmobiling world. It gives the rear passenger a seat that is a little higher than the driver, with separate hand holds and proper foot placement. While both Polaris and Can-Am offer two-up machines of various sizes, two that match up very well are in the 850 class – the Polaris Sportsman Touring 850 and Can-Am MAX XT 850. Let’s see how well they do, by the numbers.
