Who told you?  I want to see the LE version to see how it looks...black plastic and me aren't the best of friends but I'd have to settle on it for the EPS and Fox shocks.

OH YOU MAY BE ORIGINAL BUT YOU ARE ALSO A PREDICTABLE HP JUNKIE AND YOU HAVE THIS LITTLE BIRDIE WITH A CANNED HAM THAT NEEDS SOME COMPETITION.

yeah big deal, black plastics, come on? you will get the eps and fox shocks and then immediately order 5 different color plastics and hoods and seats and 4 or 5 pipes. it will only be stock for a minute or 2. then each mod will only last as long as it takes you to turn the go pro on and off for the test videos.

haha  So sad, but probably true.  Curious of the price tag on these things too...I'm hoping quite a bit lower than those Canned Hams.

i think it is going to be a great machine. i hope it is priced lower and is just as fast as the canned ham. i love all machines but polaris just does it for me.

This is awesome, because you know what this means.........
Next year there will be a Turbo Renegade 1000 to make this look silly!  Can-Am will not sit still on this.  
I didn't get time to look at the link much, but it sure looks and sounds promising.

Nice. Depending on the weight, I'd buy one over a Canned Ham. I already own one underdog and love it, why not two??

MSRP $11,999 is a couple Grand lower than the 1000 X XC isn't it? Only thing the Polaris is missing that I can tell it beadlocks. I actually like that it resembles a Sportsman with tiny racks, I would have added a small rack to a Rene anyways. I told you guys it was gonna happen... even if it does look just like a Sportsman, haha

I agree. Plus it'd be unique on the trail not just another Can Am. NOT that there's anything wrong with them just very popular!

No matter how good this Scrambler turns out to be, it will never ever hold a candle to the Renegade in 1 very important category......SOUND! 
Parallel twin will always sound like a pretender compared to the Vee-Twin Thump!   Not bashing it, just saying I love the thump on my Vee-Twin! 

I still giggle when I hit the throttle on it, and I've had it for some months already.  It just never gets old!

Unless its got floats on it......Care Not I do.

But on the real it looks like they are using the same podium X's polaris always uses....now in gen 2 colors tho ....I like the gen 2 colors.

EDIT: ive always wondered if leaning on those things does anything....ok rephrase, if someone who weighs 140 lbs like I do leans on it, does anything.

Maybe not just another Sportsman. I'll have to go down to my Pol/KTM dealer and see when they're getting one, I'd like to see if the chassis is different. Hopefully smaller and lighter like the plastics. Prob not tho... Either way, I think it's pretty sweet.

yup you are missing the best feature it is not a canned ham!

no nothing missing. we have just all been wanting a sport ute from polaris with a decent power plant for years. the scrambler 500 was decent but when they killed the scrambler 400 2 stroke a little part of me died. the 500 was just a bit more sporty than the sportsman in stock form. for a lot of guys this will be their dream machine. would i like to have one yes. is it my dream machine no. i think it will give the renegade a good run for it's money, especially for the money. those 2 are both too much cash for me to plunk down. i will buy another truck before i spend $12,000 on an atv so for me it makes no difference what it is until it is 5 or 6 years old. so carry on where were we? oh yeah, can am is better. no polaris is better. no ktm is better...

I wish someone would come out with a TRUE sport 4x4 ATV. Not a UTE

100% sport oriented. Kinda like the 525irs but with 4x4.

That's what I've been saying. Imagine what a 525IRS could do it it were 4x4. Same power as many UTEs but nearly half the weight... I don't get why someone won't step out and do it. They would be THE ONLY one selling a bike to us!

That is very true. 
I'm just not sold on what Polaris is doing here.  I'm sure they skimped on the shocks and eliminated the Rebound Clicker.  The shocks are alot of what made my mind up on my purchase.  I've seen Polaris throw parts at current machines in the past only to see them come up short because they cheaped off on some important things.   
I actually like the Scrambler, but I just have no confidence in Polaris as a whole anymore.

Oh with that, I completely agree. But that's much bigger than Polaris. I never had anything honored by Suzuki or Kawasaki either. Maybe if I really fought with them, but why should I have to do that??

So I'm with you, that's why I buy used and wrench myself too.

i agree. i will not buy new vehicles ever period. i have been screwed on my one and only new car also. that was a chrysler. my dad has had the shaft from toyota and ford. i just simply buy one that another guy has tested for a few miles and if it is running long enough for the test drive and i can get a good deal on it i will wrench on it all it needs. then we bond once i have my hands all over it we are permanently connected. i still write letters to my outlaw down in pueblo colorado. claudio reads them to my little snuggly wuggly outlaw when he puts it to bed every night.

I didn't mind paying the extra for the can-am, because they "seem so much more dedicated" to the all out performance section of the quad market.  I know they have frame issues now, but I'm not worried about that, a simple weld and bracket will fix it if needed.
I bet Can-am pumps the HP next year.  All they have to do it reprogram the CDI.  They have all kinds of power limiting features built into the current 1000.  I can't wait to un-do those!

My thoughts here.

The Scrambler does have compression AND rebound.

Yes, both the Sportsman and Scrambler 850 and Outlander and Renegade 1000 are basically the same machines with different plastic.

I like how the Scrambler has the racks already as I would have to add something to the Renegade if I were to buy one.

I agree with the Scrambler looking like Rath's Sportsman.

Scrambler has 77hp and 1000 has 82hp. 

Not sure on Scrambler weight...it's "TBD".

Not a fan of the single lever brakes on the Scrambler.  A sport oriented machine should have separate brakes.

The only reason I'm interested in the Scrambler is the shocks (same with the Renegade).  Quality shocks are where it's at.  BUT, I can get basically the same machine with MUCH better mud protection, carrying capacity, and in my opinion, a better resale value if I opted for the Sportsman or Outlander and threw aftermarket shocks on it.

Overall, I'm kind of with Fuj...disappointed when you boil down the details.
