Polaris RUSH Will Revolutionize Snowmobile Industry

Ride Longer, Harder, and Ride Again Tomorrow on the All-New Terrain-Dominating PRO-RIDE™ RUSH

Jan. 25, 2009 By Press Release
Polaris Industries Inc. has launched its Model Year 2010 600 RUSH snowmobile, the first snowmobile with a truly progressive-rate rear suspension. The 600 RUSH’s bottomless suspension is designed to absorb the toughest bumps, transferring the load to the super-rigid PRO-RIDE chassis which isolates the rider from spine tinglers. No longer will riders leave the trail feeling bruised and beat up after a long day.

Polaris RUSH Snowmobile

Polaris RUSH in action“The new Polaris 600 RUSH truly marks a turning point for the snowmobile industry,” said Scott Swenson, vice president, Snowmobile Division of Polaris Industries Inc. “The progressive-rate rear suspension has been proven in Motocross; Polaris has now become the first company to bring it to snowmobiles. This innovative suspension combined with the new super-rigid PRO-RIDE chassis provides riders with an unprecedented level of rider-active control including improvements in acceleration and cornering.”

“Polaris has really nailed it with this sled,” said Levi LaVallee, Professional Sno-Cross Racer and X-Games Gold Medalist. “Riding the 600 RUSH felt like nothing I have ever experienced. I was in the ideal riding position to transfer my weight for launch, and to set the front end for cornering. It has wicked control and a suspension that refuses to give up.”

Polaris Rush SledBoasting the proven 600cc Polaris Liberty engine, the 600 RUSH is designed with improved chassis rigidity and engine mounting to deliver more power to the ground. In addition to meeting the Polaris standard of industry-leading ride and handling, the 600 RUSH also delivers aggressive styling, weight reductions, and improved reliability. The limited production 2010 Polaris 600 RUSH will be available at local dealers beginning fall, 2009, and will be offered as part of the 2010 Polaris Snow Check program beginning in March 2009.
