MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Polaris extends its RZR lineup by introducing the new RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition, which will be available at Polaris dealerships in “very limited quantities” in late January. Suggested retail is $21,999.

“We’re very excited to offer the Jagged X Edition, which provides a whole new customer solution featuring the most popular options straight from the factory,” said Craig Scanlon, Polaris’ general manager, Recreational Off-Road Vehicles. “This vehicle is the most complete RZR ever built, combining the ultimate in performance, comfort and incredible styling.”

To give the Jagged X Edition more power, Polaris took the 88-horsepower ProStar 900 that’s been powering the RZR XP 900 and RZR XP 4 and made it a 94-horsepower high-output engine.

Changes include new profiles on the intake and exhaust camshafts, and the addition of stiffer valve springs. These changes were paired with a new engine calibration and a stainless steel SLP exhaust with dual outlets for increased exhaust flow and an aggressive race-inspired sound. To accommodate the power increase, the clutches were updated with new weights to provide increased acceleration performance. According to Polaris, the ProStar 900 H.O. now boasts acceleration on par with the RZR XP 900 and 17 percent faster acceleration (0 to 60 mph) than the RZR XP 4 900.

The Jagged X Edition has a 26-inch-longer wheelbase for a smoother ride and Walker Evans 2.5-inch Body Rear Shocks. For comfort in the cabin, Polaris added deep-bolstered, five-point, harness-ready PRP seats, an adjustable driver seat and more than an inch of additional legroom. To reduce rider fatigue and steering effort, the vehicle also features electronic power steering.

The Jagged X Edition offers thousands of dollars in factory-installed add-ons for visual appeal and more performance. Along with its black, blue and white Jagged X-inspired graphics, the vehicle sports matching factory-installed doors; Voodoo Blue-painted suspension springs and valve cover; a race-inspired, color-matched, custom cab frame with integrated rear cab frame extension that wraps around the rear bed; and Bighorn tires on Black painted Walker Evans beadlock wheels with color-matched beadlock rings. For more storage, the unit features weather-sealed, removable dual cargo boxes in the rear cab area that have lockable lids.

“Off-road racing is incredible proving grounds for our machines, and Polaris has been working closely with one of the premier off-road racing teams, Jagged X, for a number of years,” said Donna Beadle, Polaris Off-Road Racing team manager. “Last year, for the introduction of the RZR XP 4 900, Jagged X raced a nearly stock car for the Best in the Desert Series. The successful season, which included five podiums in six races, showed the capability of the unit, provided a whole new customer solution and is the inspiration for the RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition.”
