New Delhi, July 9, 2013: Polaris India, a wholly owned subsidiary of Polaris Industries Inc, which markets off-road and All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), has bagged its first commercial order in India from Gujarat Police.

The Gujarat government has chosen the RZR S800 model which is designed to tackle off-road terrain. The RZR S800 has a 760cc twin-cylinder engine that develops 54bhp. The scope of the order includes on- and off-site training, maintenance and aftersales support.

Our vehicles are sturdy, reliable and effective over the toughest of terrains. Polaris has demonstrated various ATVs to the defence, police and paramilitary forces.” Polaris India launched its product range including ATVs, Ranger RZR, Side X Side Vehicles and snowmobiles in India on August 24, 2011.
