Polaris Delivers First MVRS800 ATV to the Army


Polaris has announced the delivery of a military version of their Polaris Ranger side-by-side to the U.S. Army at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

The MVRS800, is the newest addition to the Polaris family of Ultra Light Tactical Vehicles and while based on the Ranger, it has a 40hp Patriot Engine™ that operates on JP8, the U.S. military's standard fuel. This breakthrough engine was first introduced by Polaris earlier this year on the militarized all terrain vehicle (ATV), the MV800.

Not much other information, although ATVRiders.com, ATV Rider magazine and ATVSource.com have all regurgitated the press release from what I can tell.
