22 • November 27, 2017 • Powersports Business www.PowersportsBusiness.com ATV/UTV RZR XP 4 Turbo Dynamix edition, LE ACE 150 EFI revealed Polaris has introduced two new 2018 models to its off-road lineup, the Polaris RZR XP 4 Turbo Dynamix edition and the limited edition Polaris ACE 150 EFI. RZR XP 4 TURBO DYNAMIX The RZR XP 4 Turbo Dynamix Edition serves as the newest member of the Dynamix family. With seating for four, the vehicle features all the innovation found on the RZR XP Turbo Dynamix Edition, including the revolution- ary Ride Command. The RZR XP 4 Turbo Dynamix Edition includes RZR Dynamix Active Suspension, the Ride Command 7-inch display with rear cam- era and an all-new, 900-watt charging system that improves battery charging and allows for additional accessory electrical loads. "RZR's Dynamix Active Suspension is intel- ligent enough to monitor critical driver and vehicle inputs 200 times per second," said Craig Scanlon, chief retail and marketing offi- cer, Polaris Off-Road Vehicles. "The system continuously adjusts each individual shock on the fly and is so dynamic that instead of having to choose between a plush ride or per- formance, riders get the best of both." Whether the vehicle is cornering, braking, accelerating, changing speeds or airborne, the system adjusts the suspension for the best response to driver inputs and terrain. These continuous changes give riders more perfor- mance without sacrificing a comfortable ride. In addition to the real-time adjustments by the system, drivers control the suspension's baseline settings by selecting their preferred riding style, and Dynamix adjusts from there: Comfort: Designed for cruising around and eliminating the small chatter. Sport: Blends performance and comfort for ultimate high-speed handling. Firm: Cranks all four shocks to max stiffness for the firmest suspension in the industry. Designed for extreme encounters and severe terrain. RZR Dynamix's real-time adjustments come to life through the revolutionary Ride Command system. The glove-touch, weather-resistant, 7-inch display indicates the suspension control system status — including compression dampening, selected mode, g-force, pedal position, steering angle, brake status and diagnostics — allowing rid- ers to visualize the real-time control. The RZR XP 4 Turbo Dynamix Edition comes in Black Pearl and will be available in dealerships in early December with a $28,499 U.S. MSRP. LIMITED EDITION POLARIS ACE 150 EFI Polaris also announced that its popular single- seat Polaris ACE 150 EFI will be available in a new, race-inspired limited edition model. The new ACE 150 EFI LE maintains all of the features that made the ACE 150 EFI a top- choice for youth 10 years old and older — a 150cc, electronic fuel injected (EFI) engine with four speed-limit modes; adjustable seat; tilt steering; 6 inches of rear suspension travel; 9 inches of ground clearance; and large 22-inch tires — and adds several new, exciting features for the trail. The ACE 150 EFI LE features color-matched components including: springs, A-arms, slider bars, the protective cage and front and rear bumper. Each vehicle also sports an individually numbered race plate. The ACE 150 EFI LE comes standard with LED daytime running lights, seatbelt, side nets, whip flag and parking brake. Also pro- vided is a training video explaining safe vehicle operation and a color-matched, DOT-approved helmet to reinforce the importance of always wearing proper safety gear. The Polaris ACE 150 EFI LE joins Polar- is's expansive youth lineup with vehicles available for children six to 14 years old. The lineup includes the Phoenix 200, Out- law and Sportsman 110 EFI, Outlaw 50, RZR 170 EFI and ACE 150 EFI. The new Polaris ACE 150 EFI LE retails for $3,999 and was scheduled to arrive in dealerships in early November. PSB CFMOTO USA has reached an agreement with the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves to become an official partner of the team for the next two seasons. The first-ever sports franchise spon- sorship for Plymouth-Minnesota-based CFMOTO USA includes in-arena brand- ing, TV branding, in-game promotions and online sweepstakes via the Timberwolves' social media outlets, along with CFMOTO's social media channels. "We are extremely excited to partner up with one of the most exciting teams in the NBA," said Eric Fan, chief financial officer of CFMOTO USA. "This agreement reinforces our commitment to the U.S. market and to this community. It is very similar to the way the Wolves committed to Minnesota with the redesign of the Target Center and by signing big name players in the offseason." "The NBA is huge overseas, and this agreement is basically an international promotional opportunity for CFMOTO," s a i d J o h n Tr a n b y, m a r k e t i n g d i re c t o r of CFMOTO USA. "Because the Timber- wolves are so exciting to watch, and with the amount of games on TV, this will help our brand see continued growth in the U.S. markets as well." As part of the sponsorship agreement, CFMOTO will have a presence in-arena with logo placement via the LED panels, in-game logo placement on the arena scoreboard and a CFMOTO vehicle in the Target Center for a month during the season. TV branding includes logos on the rotat- ing scorer's table courtside, along with a logo placement several times in-game above the digital game clock on TV broadcasts. CFMOTO will also co-brand an in-game T-shirt toss with CFMOTO/Timberwolves shirts, along with a month-long sweep- stakes on a branded page on the Timber- wolves website.
