Things that we like about the Polaris Switchback? Pretty much everything. Sure, given a choice between a dressed version with Walker Evans shocks and a top of the line 800cc engine or the basic 600 Switchback model, we'd go with the top of the line every time. That said, we'll readily admit that we could live quite happily with the base 600 Switchback.
A base Switchback can sate our palate for trail adventures. Look at these facts. The basic model and the top line models share the same fundamental design in front suspension, rear suspension, platform design, seating ergonomics and the like. The key differential lies in the finishing pieces.
