I bought this machine for my wife who never wanted to drive ATV's in the past. I own several Sportsman machines but none with EPS.
This machine is a dream to drive and ride. I could not believe they could make one better than the standard Sportsman.
The XP's ride and handling is unbelievable. The EPS is so awesome. My wife loves this new machine and our daughter rides with her, but the second seat is very comfortable for an adult to ride with ease.
I liked this ATV so much I upgraded my 500 HO to a 550 XP with EPS. Keep up the great work Polaris!
Upgrades/Accessories: Front & rear bumper/brush guards, handle bar mirror and rear control arm guards.
