Hmmmm. I'm really starting to fully direct my swing to BRP lately.

Intrigued. It seems like Polaris has the market on the side by sides. Will this turn the tables?

Ehh, they definitely sell the most but Polaris is by far pretty lackluster in the fit-and-finish department. I'd say in the past few years Can-Am has taken a pretty decent chunk of the market.

I'm not sold on the look. That first pic looks like a concept. Remember boys, 160HP is at the engine...

Does can-am have any machines that can sit head to head with a RZR 1000?

Take whatever Polaris has, and turn it into a V-twin 1000. They basically have equal machines and the same, if not more, customization of machines. I agree with Frank, we were up in Hayward finger fucking some SxS a while back. Can-Am definitely has the fit-and-finish over Polaris BUT Polaris does make some raw machines that get down.

Since I am buying new, I need to really start doing research. For some reason I heard that nothing can beat the RZR.

Don't get me wrong I'm a Yamaha braap guy at heart, but if that concept is close to what the real production machine will be YUP NEED

Well yeah, the nut swingers are going to say "nothing can beat my X". Honestly, you can't go wrong either way. Even the YXZ is bad ass but that's more high speed dune/trail versus back wood trail/mud stuff. All the new machines, ATVs, SxS, snowmobiles, coming out are all bad ass. You won't be disappointed with any manufacturer today.

That is what I like to hear. I will be using this primarily on rocky surfaces in mountainous areas. This is monsoon season here and it gets really muddy on the trails out here so that is a must as well. I need to start sitting in these things to see which one feels better and just go from there. Good to know there are good options. The can am's seem lighter too. Always a bonus.

I'm more interested in why they went from their self-proclaimed "superior" 5-link IRS to the trailing arm setup similar to the RZR.
