2018 Introduction of the first ever RZR RS1 White Lightning

Polaris may not have started the single seat UTV market, but they own it now.

The RZR RS1 is the only performance single seat UTV available today.

It was introduced in 2018 and is still going strong.

Prior to the RZR RS1, Polaris had the single seater ACE lineup which at the time was leading the charge with single seaters.

The RZR RS1 is a significant improvement over the ACE.

Not too surprisingly, the ACE line was discontinued in 2019. No doubt Polaris felt they hit pay dirt with the RS1 and buyers agreed.

Three years later, the RZR RS1 is still going strong with no signs of letting up.

The Road To The RZR RS1

Prior to the RZR RS1, Polaris had a line of single seaters in their ACE lineup. These models included the Polaris ACE 570 EPS, Polaris ACE 900 XC and the Polaris ACE 500.

With the chart topping horsepower maxing out at 78 HP, the ACE wasn’t setting any track records. However, when you’re the only game in town and the demand is there…

From 2014 – 2019, this was the best you could get.

Heck, this was all you could get!

Consumers and customers decide the market, so demand for single seat UTVs must still be there otherwise Polaris wouldn’t still be at it 8 years later.

Obviously when the RZR RS1 made it’s debut, there was no reason to continue with the ACE lineup. It was leaps and bounds ahead of the Ace.

Polaris stopped making the Ace in 2019
