Only took Honda what.....9-10 years to do it after Yamaha? I though you didn't need diff lock if you tap the front brakes just right on a Honda.

Why does almost every trend turn to brand bashing. I am seeing it more and more. Either is honda guys bashing Polaris or cam am.. Or y'all non honda fans bashing honda. It turns into bashing a lot now.

I don't think it's bashing. People are starting to realize that Honda isn't giving consumers what they need. And for me personally all UTV/Atv should all have certain things and abilities. Honda seems to leave them out or put inferior pieces.

People makes excuses or reasons for Hondas poor decisions. We the consumers are tired of being strung along for the ride.

People bash Can-am and Polaris for being unreliable. But having that much hp comes at a cost. Atleast they are pushing the sport further. I bet if Can-am or Polaris puts out a 700cc with only a 38hp it will be just as reliable or **** close to a Hondas products. That's the only reason why Hondas are reliable is because they don't have enough power to break anything. Just saying.

.....and the all out Honda fans disappointed with their favorite brand... kind of like me. I'll always be Honda and all I can do is hope they continue improving and acknowledge custumer feedback .

I truly blame sue happy society that think it's Honda's responsibility to keep them safe no matter how stupid and negligent people get riding Honda's This is what has steered Honda in the direction they have gone.

I remember the day's with the almighty legendary Honda 250R that no manufacture could really out do. Negligent sue happy society ruined it all IMO.

I wouldn't call it bashing either but mostly because the die hard brand loyalists make endless excuses for Honda's lack of options. I used to only buy Honda but got sick of waiting for them to complete with the other major players. Really it would be like one of the big 3 auto makers offering they're top of the line pickup with vinyl seats, manual door locks, and windows only in a standard cab with a 4 cylinder engine. Truck buyers wouldn't put up with that, why do ATV/UTV owners?

This is another comment I'm tired of hearing.. I've had to replace an axle and a shock on my pioneer.. And saw a rincon break it's second axle last weekend.. Hondas can break stuff, it's just a lot harder to do and happens less often.

The thing is people are still buying honda over other brands. The mojority of people love their Hondas. There is a few that will never be happy. Y'all know how honda is so just buy another brand. All the complaints isn't going to fix or change anything. Just like the complaints about Polaris and can am they aren't going to change from belts unless they want too. Complain all you want. I complain about my government all the time does it work heck no.
