I'm looking forward to seeing how these things perform. My old RZR's were a blast, and one with more suspension travel and double the HP from the factory sounds very tempting. The 900 was decent stock, but it didn't have enough for me to justify upgrading from my S model.
25k is expensive for a toy, but these things are great for trails, dunes, light utility work, mud, mild rock crawling, hunting, etc...they are extremely capable stock, and the aftermarket support is insane (well, it is for the previous models and Im sure the 1000 will be the same). So it's not like you are getting a speciality rig that's only good at one thing like a sand rail, rock crawler, etc. That's how I justify the cost to myself at least ;)
