I project a giant flop coming. I hate to say it but after having something that led the industry like the Rhino I cannot understand how Yamaha keeps coming out with their current lineup. I know the dealers will be disappointed with it.

Looks like they put a lot of thought in it and would be fun to drive, nice shocks. I think it might be a good machine.

Wonder why 60.6" and not 50"?

Don't feed the bears no matter what they tell you!

Nice work on the Wolverine Yamaha! 700 CC 1300 lbs 3 mode drive train. I think will fit in rear of pickup no?
Lots of features for the price point!

With the Wolverine? Why do you say that, please explain?

Looks like a very capable machine. A little pricey but you do get the nice shocks and eps. I wish it had a little more cargo capacity, at least 600lbs like the Viking. I guess I will be keeping my P2 for a while as its still the most bang for the buck.

I'm going to at least wait until it comes out to give my judgement. I'm sure they are trying to come out with the best product possible.

Little to small for me, but I like it.

It's off the table for me.....narrows it down to the P2 and the Viking.


Making that decision this weekend.


Ride on!

Both are great vehicles. Obviously we are probably a bit biased on this forum.

Take a look at the Polaris 570 full size. They are a nice machine for the money too. Saw a 15 priced for 9200 with rebate.
