Polaris introduces single-seat youth vehicle

Polaris has announced a single-seat Polaris ACE 150 EFI, the industry’s only single-seat youth model with a protective cab frame. Modeled after Polaris ACE vehicles, the new Polaris ACE 150 EFI gives kids 10 years old and older the single-seat freedom enjoyed by their adult counterparts. It retails for $3,799 and is expected in dealerships end of March.

“Polaris continues to innovate its youth line up to provide a wide variety of safe, fun options for kids,” said Craig Scanlon, Polaris Off-Road Vehicles chief retail officer. “The new Polaris ACE 150 EFI is another way for families to share the off-road riding experience together.”

The Polaris ACE 150 EFI has several features to provide a safe, enjoyable ride. The 150cc, Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI) engine has four speed-limit modes. Standard from the factory the vehicle is limited to 10 mph. Adults are able to adjust the top speed to 15 mph, 22 mph or 29 mph, based on the skills of the rider. Other safety features include LED daytime running lights, seatbelt, side nets, whip flag and parking brake. Additionally, the vehicle comes with a video explaining safe operation and a DOT-approved helmet to reinforce the importance of wearing proper safety gear.

The Polaris ACE 150 EFI offers a large ergonomic range of adjustability to grow with the driver. This includes ample amounts of headroom, tilt steering wheel and pedals, and adjustable bucket seat for growing riders. Likewise, the vehicle is the most capable youth model, featuring 6-in. of rear suspension travel, 9-in. of ground clearance, and large 22-in tires. The features enable easier maneuverability over obstacles and provide easier handling for youth riders. For added customization, the Polaris ACE 150 EFI can be accessorized with poly roof, half-windshield, and front and rear bumpers.

The Polaris ACE 150 EFI will be available in Indy Red and retails for $3,799. It joins the Phoenix 200, RZR 170 EFI, Outlaw and Sportsman 110 EFI, and Outlaw 50 as part of Polaris youth lineup.

Adult supervision is required for all riders under 16.  Polaris strongly encourages anyone operating an ORV to take available training.
