Everyone loves polls, so i thought I would create one here. Just let us all know what UTV you are currently thinking of purchasing. If its not Honda UTV then let us know what other type of UTV you are going to get instead.

The pioneer 700-4 sounds really convincing right now. My wife is even excited about it. The two seats in the rear really gives us options since it can be folded and when up the kids can be secure in the back.

Hard to say exactly right now but the big red is out of the equation thats for sure.

Do you guys think the two added seats in the back of the 700-4 is justifiable for the extra $1,700?

700-4 pioneer takes the win because of the two extra seat but what else is different from the 700? Just trying to work out the differences to see if it is worth it to buy the 700-4. Can some one list the differences? Thanks in advance.

Is anyone considering the Yamaha Viking? It is a three seater that also has some extra shoulder room because the middle seat is off-set.

I don't think many will be buying the Big Red. Wasn't a very popular model. I don't need the extra seats, will be purchasing a 700 if the reviews are good.

Looking to get a 2 seater. Can't justify giving up bedspace for the seating.

That's the neat thing about the M4, you don't loose the bed with the seats down. If you don't have a need for it I would just go with the M2 though. It's a little cheaper and a more open box without the extra roll cage. Another thing is if you plan on hauling something like gravel or sand in the bed the seat area on the M4 will require extra cleaning or you would have to use a tarp.

Well i planned on getting a toolbox for straps, tools, etc. and usually theres an icechest back there so i would have to find somewhere to put them everytime. I know...its minor, but we dont have kids yet so the 2 suits us better now.

On a side note the dealer was showing me a rubber mat that goes in the bed that seals the seats off so you can put gravel and stuff in the bed. Im just not sure how much it was.

The M4 is most versatile and is a real selling point. Being able to take 4 people around, or fold the seats down and you can use it for carting things around. I am not aware of any other UTVs that have that ability. Do you guys have any idea if there are other vehicles that have this?

It certainly is one of the biggest differences between the Pioneer and the BR.

Got a buddy that has a kawasaki mule 4010 trans-4x4. Its the four seater with a decent bed and you can fold the rear seat down to make a long bed. But its a turd, 22-23mph tops (gps) plus the ground clearence sucks.

Camp 700

Camo 700-2 should arrive late this week. Looks like the tires could be weak point so I am watching what other forum members are buying. Looks like a 6 ply radial will be a minimum. I currently have 26" Maxxis on my Ranger Mid-Size which I traded in on the Pioneer and they have performed very well.

I'd be real interested in getting your comparative evaluation between the two after you log some seat time. I was on the fence between the Pioneer and the mid size Polaris. Opted for the Pioneer.

Welcome to the forum. Which Maxxis tire are you running. I run MudBugs on one machine and BearClaws on another. I've been hearing great things about the HTR so I might have to try a set of those.

I am real close to pulling the trigger on a Pioneer 4. I have a quote of $10,900. First thing I will do is add 27 inch 8 ply Kenda Bear Claw HTR radial tires. I already have a Rzr with them and they are a great tire. What price are others getting quoted on the pioneer and is 10,900 a good price?

just curious but where is this dealer located that you're ordering a Pioneer from?
i bet some more off-road friendly states and areas get better pricing.
