The Gen 2 RZR Pro R Factory represents a significant leap forward in off-road vehicle technology. Built on the revolutionary RZR Pro R platform, this second-generation vehicle enhances the blend of power, strength, and control that has been the hallmark of the original. With a new one-piece chassis that promises increased strength and stiffness, alongside a slew of bodywork upgrades and electronic enhancements, this vehicle is the product of meticulous development and refinement by the Polaris team in collaboration with their drivers.

Alex Scheuerell, the Technical Director at Polaris Factory Racing, shared insights into the development process, emphasizing the team’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of off-road performance. According to Scheuerell, the Gen 2 RZR Pro R Factory is a testament to Polaris Engineering’s expertise, designed to outperform the competition and secure back-to-back championships.

Among the notable features of the new model are the upgraded front and rear bumpers, designed to withstand the rigors of North American desert racing, and a new factory muffler that maximizes power while refining the vehicle’s sound. Additionally, the vehicle boasts an improved cage design for added strength and cockpit room, high-performance Alcon brake systems, and a DYNAMIX Suspension Control Module offering enhanced control across varied terrains.

Polaris off-road racing has also partnered with MoTeC for race-tuned electronic componentry, further elevating the vehicle’s performance. Other upgrades include a lightweight prop shaft made of aluminum and carbon fiber, increased carbon fiber bodywork for better power-to-weight ratio, and an enhanced fuel system designed to extend the range between pit stops.

The vehicle’s prowess has already been proven in competition, with the first-generation RZR Pro R Factory achieving remarkable success in the 2023 season, including a victory at the Baja 1000. The start of 2024 has seen continued success, with notable wins at the Dakar Rally and the King of the Hammers Desert Challenge.
