That is the one I will buy I hope Polaris reads this.

I was at the Portland OR Sportsman show this week I had a booth there for my business and there were several Polaris dealers there with machines. I got my first look at a Polaris Scrambler XP-1000 they did not have any Ace vehicles yet they all said next week their shipments were due.

Looking over this Scrambler it just looks like a great suspension package to put under the Ace for a Sports edition. The current Ace looks like a good trail model but I think the Scrambler suspension would be better.

I am going to wait and see if they do this in the next year. I would not mind having one of these first ones but I only plan to buy one so I will wait to see what transpires. I already messed up once by spending a bunch of money building HP & suspension in an 08 800 RZR with long travel and Turbo only to see them come out with the first XP 2 months later. I have about $16K in that machine wishing I had spent the money on an XP.

With the scrambler suspension the aftermarket guys can easily make a long travel kit and upgraded shocks and of course the bigger HP would be great. I think the Scramlber suspension will be great for trails also. Don't get me wrong I think this first Ace is great for what it was designed for and I could see a camo hunting edition being introduced with warn winch and gun rack or bow rack. I have a Browning edition Sportsman 500 that is camo with the warn winch from the factory.

Is there even enough room for a twin cylinder engine to fit in the current ace chassis. I believe that's gonna be a tight fit

I was lucky enough to ride the Scrambler 1000 a few months back. It's an incredible machine. Before riding I was thinking who on earth would need that much power with an ATV. 2 minutes after riding I knew :) You might not use all of the power all of the time, but it's awesome knowing it's there when you need it!

Hows the 570 sportsman? I've been giving that machine a hard look with EPS. My biggest issue with the Scrambler 1000 is the price. I'm not saying it's not worth it...I just cant justify the price.

The 570 in my opinion is by far the best bang for the buck ATV you can buy. It rides real nice and smooth. Suspension is dialed in to handle trails / rocky terrain and works well with the amount of power the 570 puts out.

The more they add to the ACE the more dollars its gonna cost, but I'm with you I would be willing to pay for all our XP,EBS,EPS 1000 ACE…but liability issues will probably never let that happen. I read somewhere Polaris adds $1500.00 to every machine they sell to cover liability suits….sick…

I expect the 570 will be the next motor for the current ACE model. I just don't see a big bore twin in one of these, unless they make it bigger and wider. And of course with that you'll start seeing RZR like prices on them. I believe a 45 to 50HP engine will be the ticket for the ACE. I just don't see anything more than 60HP going in one of these anytime soon. As the suspension would have to be totally changed to keep up with the power.

I disagree the Scrambler XP-1000 is smaller and the rider has a higher center of gravity with a shorter wheel base and they built it. I can't imagine they would not do the same with a longer chasis like the Ace and driver lower center of gravity the Scrambler XP-850 would also be nice. If I remember right the cost on that Scrambler XP-1000 was over $13K so I would guess an Ace in that platform would be $14K-$15K.
