2018 Polaris 600R

Key features:

Front Suspension

  • Walker Evans Velocity Front Suspension Shocks & Springs
    • The position sensitive-shock allows for a softer initial setting but still has stiffness at bottom for big hits.
  • Upper Front Control Arm design to accommodate new shock reservoir position and for added protection to the shock.
  • Taller Spindles improve cornering and add ground clearance (0.5-in. taller).


  • Clutch features straight-cut sheave angle for improved holeshot performance due to better belt grip.


  • Floating Stainless Steel Brake Rotor and Brake Pads
    • Improved stopping power, performance and durability.
    • The lighter-weight rotor is floating to prevent warping.

Running Boards

  • Feature new stock cutouts for easy snow evacuation and added traction cleats for additional rider traction.


  • Seat cover material for improved durability that maintains grip.

Rear Suspension Shocks

  • Calibration and styling updates.

FrogzSkin on Upper Hood Vents

  • Added intake foam seal and included FrogzSkin over upper-hood vents to prevent snow ingestion.
