Polaris Industries Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Bombardier Recreational Products




Minneapolis – Polaris Industries announced it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. (BRP) in U.S. District Court. The lawsuit specifically details alleged infringements of patents by BRP that were issued to Polaris.

The company is not disclosing specific details of the lawsuit at this time, but the patents in question in this case relate to the suspension systems of trail performance and crossover snowmobiles, product categories in which both companies design, manufacture and sell products. Polaris alleges that BRP violated patents owned by Polaris and knowingly continued to violate these patents after receiving written notice.

“For more than 55 years, a key foundation of our culture and success at Polaris has been innovation,” Marlys Knutson, spokesperson for Polaris, said. “We have a respectful relationship with BRP, but we always have and always will vigorously defend our intellectual property.”
