Dear Lord,
Give me coffee to change the things I can change,
and Jack Daniels to accept the things I can't...


Way to stay cool, toodeep. But, some of you boys need to get a grip and learn a new Southern word: kwitcherbichin
toodeep and William like this.

LOL... There is nothing here to get worked up over, it's been a calm rant thread for some. No big deal to me really. There are so many things in life worth fighting to change that a locker in the front of a SXS is pretty immaterial. On every forum there is a wish list for things people want changed, not just Honda forums. You can't please everyone.

I expect the 5 seat model will be available in a 3 seat model and have a detuned version of the large high performance Sport model which could be out this year. The Pioneer 500 has a good market spot and I expect it will be the same for several years. 28.5 hp compared to the 50" 75 hp RZR costing about $,4000 more puts it in a different market. The 570 and 800 RZR models sucked in the loose deep sand with a top speed of about 35 mph. The 75 hp 900 engine will fix that problem.
Over the next few years expect several high performance models from Honda and Yamaha. Polaris knows these models will be good. Polaris got their ass handed to them with their sport model in the 450 class so expect better design and build quality. The problem with Polaris models is lots of costly repair to get to 10,000 miles. I'm over 6,000 miles in less then 4 months on my P700 and nothing fell off, broke, or blew up. The P700 is my 10th side by side. My retired friends ride a lot and get lots of failures on the RZR's. I put over 19,000 miles on my 2011, 2012, and 2013 Polaris models with lots of failures and I just hate getting towed in. I'm too old to wait so the RZR fun is worth all the problems.

Does Price point matter so much that you will give up things that are needed?


10,299 for a 50" 570. Faster, more powerful, diff lock, better suspension and an all around higher performance machine


The price difference isn't that much between the 500 and the 570. Value per dollar is much higher.


Saying this though, in the spring there will be a P500 in the garage for my wife. She doesn't need a diff lock, she doesn't need super suspension, and she doesn't need to go 50+MPH. There is a "butt" for every seat. I do personally like the 500 but would get bored with it if it was the only one in my fleet.


Me, I want to, so I will end up with something, haven't made up my mind. Probably a 900 50" or one of those Reepers.

Good for them. It's hard washing all the mud and leaves out without drain holes...

It already had drain holes. Now it has bank teller slots.

Those are carefully designed cooling vents. They are also designed for aerodynamics. At about 40 miles per hour the P500 gets light in the rear end kinda like a Bugatti... The vents create down force to keep it from fish tailing at the high top speed.

I assume both of these would work. Not saying it's ideal but it is an option.
