Polaris also enhances the riding experience with a complete line of Pure Polaris apparel, accessories and parts, available at Polaris dealerships.

Originally designed for the European market, the Revolver concept was created to propose a new solution. Many of the ATVs currently sold in Europe are homologated for on-road use as “quadricycles.” Virtually all of today’s active, street-legal, homologated quadricycles are off-road vehicles that have been adapted for on-road use. The Revolver concept is a purpose-built vehicle designed to deliver good off-road performance combined with a new level of on-road capability.

Revolver provides an awesome new experience with an uncommonly urban edge of sharp, aggressive attitude. The design of the Revolver includes such appointments as supple Italian leather seating, low-profile “floating” fender designs, modular deep-dish alloy wheels and stunning “light ring” headlights. In addition, a state-of-the-art iPod® entertainment system will see to it that you and your passenger are always in tune. Every sculpted detail works in concert with one another to create a look and feel that reflects the unheard of experience and attitude this vehicle provides.

Other Revolver features include:

  • A powerful 500cc liquid-cooled 4-valve engine
  • 5-speed transmission, disc brakes and massive meaty tires see to it that the maximum amount of power goes where it should – both on and off-road
  • A super-duty suspension with a radically lowered and widened stance guarantees absolutely superior any-road cornering
  • Hydraulic steering dampener and long wheelbase for added stability on all surfaces
  • Designed for two riders

The Revolver concept debuted at the Paris Motorcycle Show in November 2005. The Motorcycle Design Association nominated the Revolver as one of eight vehicles to be considered for their “Best of Show” award.
