P700 vs Yamaha Wolverine

I got a chance to check out the Wolverine for the first time the other day.

Wow. It's a good looking UTV and definitely a worthy upgrade for the old in the tooth Rhino.

Im wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the Yamaha vs the Honda?

15 KTM RC 390

Current:
16 MV Agusta F3 675 RC
15 Yamaha Superjet 701
15 Honda Pioneer 500
14 Husky FE350

Past:
10 Honda CRF250R
08 Yamaha Superjet
08 Kawi Ninja 250R
07 Kawi 900 SX-R GP
06 Kawi 900 SX-R GP
06 Kawi 800 X-2
05 Kawi KX250
05 Kawi 800 SX-R

There is no VS... Two total different machines. Ones made for working one is made for trail riding. what you need too think about is what kind of riding you will be doing? What kind of work you will use it for? Then you can think about which one you would like to buy if that is someone's goal. If you want a SxS more geared for trail riding and lite work get the Yamaha if you want it for working and lite trail riding get the pioneer. Yamaha is the only company i would buy a CVT SxS from. If they come out with a badass sport i might get it. I just really hope honda does. I'm driving a Wolverine later on today..

I guess I didnt think of it that way. I kinda look at the p700 as a pretty sporty UTV. Kinda of a do-it-all sort of toy. Especially since it is often compared to the Kawi Teryx (which is Kaw's sport model).

The Wolverine is sportier but its not like it doesnt have a dump bed also. We have a Rhino on the ranch and while it would fall under the same category as a Wolverine (Im assuming) it is purely used as a ranch vehicle and does everything we want it.

Maybe it's just me but it seems there are 3 classes of UTV these days...

Work - Kawi Mules and the like
Sport - Teryx, Wolverine, Pioneer 7's
Performance - All those crazy mini-sand rails Polaris is making

It does not have a dump bed. The tailgate is a slide-in panel and does not fold down.

What are they willing to sell a Wolverine for? Reason for asking, the MSRP is $13K and would agree, a nice looking unit but $3K above a 700-2 Pioneer and at that price, $13K, a number of units can be considered at that price. I too, will be anxious see a Wolverine see one soon.

The Wolverine is marketed as a recreational vehicle, it has no practical utility function. The suspension is amazing on it, the engine very strong for it's rated hp. With the JBS clutch it runs 59 mph and cruises at 52.
The brakes and eps are excellent.
My only complaint is the cvt whine is loud at higher rpms.

I do believe there will be a push by all players (Honda, Polaris, etc.,) to develop a line of units which cut across work and play more purposely. More specifically, I anticipate something like a RZR/Ranger combo, which may prove to be popular.
