Yes, that is a rubber grommet.it is on the passenger side
Thank youYes, that is a rubber grommet.
Seriously, it was the location of a passenger grab handle. During the dealer demo rides Polaris was getting feedback that people didn't like it rubbing on their leg. So it was removed and covered so they could get the production models going without having to wait for a redesign, causing further delays in production.
I posted this little hidden easter egg tidbit in my HayDays thread back in September.
