That's what I was thinking. More torque, engine is not working as hard.

the standard 800 is actually a 760cc its not bad. I own one. I have the 50" so its trail width. its about 9 feet long so its going to be tight in some trails. for the most part its a fun ride.

alot, $14,000...but it has alot of good stuff on it and all the street legal bullshit is taken care of...if it sells it sells, if it doesn't I keep it. It's not one of those must sells, its more like it's okay if it sells.

I would look at a 570. The drive train has less resistance and is only slower on top end because Polaris governs the top speed. Other than that the 570 is just as quick and puts about the same amount of power to the ground as the 800.

We test drove both. Seemed pretty equal up to about 30 when side-by-side on both 50" versions; the 800 felt like it had better torque, the 570 felt like it was clutched differently for more rpm. In the end, we chose the 50" 800. I like torque and if the wife and kid are going to be in it primarily, she'll benefit from the torque available at part throttle too.
