When we spotted this new Polaris General at this years 2016 Rally On The Rocks event we knew we wanted to learn more about it! It came to no surprise that HCR Racing would be the first to develop an awesome suspension kit for this popular new machine and take its looks to the next level. We have ran HCR suspension for years, as a matter of fact the first suspension kit we ever ran on a UTV was an HCR kit that we installed on our 2006 Yamaha Rhino. The quality back then was the same as it is today, awesome!
HCR is long known for their innovative designs, quality craftsmanship and superior materials. Every suspension kit they make is tig welded to perfection. Their arms and parts are works of art and I always feel guilty when we lay powder-coat over the raw metal as the welds and fabrication is something to appreciate.
While HCR built this new 2016 Polaris General 1000 to showcase their new suspension I couldn’t help but take notice of the overall layout on this machine. The color scheme is simple yet pops and while the build itself is fairly simple it still had some great seats, wheels, tires and lighting that made this vehicle grab the attention of everyone who attended this years Rally On The Rocks.
While our phoographer Tommy Gun Images went off to shoot the vehicle for this feature I got the chance to catch up with the HCR crew to talk about our own General build which undoubtedly will feature this suspension kit! We can’t wait to get to work on our own General and see what we too can come up with!!
