Test drove the polaris 400 and 570 today, ranger

The 570 has the engine moved back and was faster and less cab noise vs the 400 but the 400 was a nice machine with less exhaust noise. While the 400 has a bit higher cab noise, interstingly, the tailpipe noise was distinctly less. The 570 has a bass like, throaty soundthat was no doubt louder but for those who care, a silencer would help.

I did like both bikes but one thing the dealer said that alarmed me as a person sensitive to noise given intended use as a hunting vehicle who will also use it for sunset cruises with the family, is the recommendation that low range be the primary gear tp protect the belt and transmission. This makes more engine noise tho not sure how necessary it is.

Depends on what you want to do with it race or recreation?

I sat in a new Ranger 570 in a showroom the other day. I tried to imagine why I would pick this vehicle over my Pioneer. The only thing I came away with was the number of little storage cubbies were quite nice and it may have an unlocking diffy?….which I could go for. I did not notice any other benefits vs. a Pioneer…..and saw a number of lesser features.
