So it's a sportsman with a roll cage with a different seating position? No thanks.

Now....a single seat, long travel, 1000cc ace? That'd have my attention.

Except they don't make them anymore and the dealer support sucks.

This UTV market is so fun to follow. I can't wait to see where it is in 5-6 years.

150hp and $35k....thats the way market will go. At that point it will be cheaper to beat up a 2 year old Ford Raptor. Polaris is getting $20k as fast as they can make them for the RZR 1ks.

There will be other options. The 1k is going over ok but having lots of first year blues. When if Yamaha and Honda step into the market it will change up a lot. I'm hanging onto my 900 XP for a few more years as I think the next two years will change this hobby big time. At that point I will look at a new one a hopefully the rzr has a lot more comp. by then. I see my self in a UTV for a long time.

It's a lot of money but I think the single seater has a place for those that are concerned with flipping a quad or young kids.

I too want to see where this market is in a couple years. Yamaha has a whole host of 150+ hp engines. They could change the game. Honda would build an under powered durable machine, but there are already lots of those in the segment. As these get a little more powerful, ill bide my time and try to justify what could likely be a 25k machine...

Looks sorta gay.



At least the Odyssey/Pilots gave you the option of limbs flying outside the cage.

No it doesn't, there are far less states that do not allow it than there are states that do. The highest density of UTV's owned are in state that don't allow it.

Hell Michigan allows it yet there are less than 500 UTV's street legal I. The entire state. How many total UTV's are there in MI?

Where did you get the crazy idea that "the market lives am dies" on it?

It's only a 325cc with 32hp. The market that Polaris intends them for is the women and old men who do not feel comfortable sitting atop a quad. According to Polaris don't look for a high performance version anytime soon. Their concern is with more hp and speed they will be unstable and flop over all the time. They don't plan on widening the wheel base to compensate for that as it uses the same suspension components as the current Sportsman ATV.

Yamaha has a performance UTV that they are working on, but have been slow and cautious since they took the brunt of all the UTV lawsuits with the Rhino. And I've talked to people who have see Honda's RZR killer in the R&D facility in California and it is supposed to be awesome, but Honda Japan is holding up the development to see what Yamaha does. Honda is very conservative after they took it on the chin for all the 3-wheeler lawsuits. It would be nice to see either one step up and take the market on, I feel that if they wait much longer they will have lost so much market share to Polaris that they will never be able to catch back up.

PS. anyone looking for a black and orange RZR4 1000 we have the only one left in the state right now!
