Polaris India Pvt. Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Polaris Industries Inc., has bagged its first commercial order to supply RZR S 800 ATVs to the Gujarat Police. The order was given by Gujarat Government for its model RZR S 800. RZR S 800 is specifically designed to take on off-road terrain. It has a 760cc twin-cylinder engine that puts out 54bhp. The engine is placed behind the passenger seat to give the vehicle a lower centre of gravity. This placement also makes the RZR S 800 a sharp handler with good rough-terrain stability. The scope of the order includes on and off site training, maintenance and after sales support. The vehicle will help the Gujarat Police in areas like routine patrol in inaccessible terrains, coastal patrol and vigilance, rough terrain, rapid pursuit operations, maintaining vigil around sensitive and hi-security zones to name a few. Speaking on the development, Mr. Pankaj Dubey, MD, Polaris India said, “ATVs are utilised by police forces across the globe. This is for the first time our ATVs will be used by Police in India. Our vehicles are sturdy, reliable and effective over the toughest of terrains. Polaris has demonstrated various All Terrain Vehicles to the Defence, Police and paramilitary forces, as these can be used in beach patrolling, dense forest, marshy land, rocky and rough terrain”.
