Yahama's new SXS.

Yahama,has introduced,there new sxs,probably not what must people thought is was gonna be.They made it more of a farm machine than sport,they say work machines sell more than the pure sports,polaris sells more rangers than rzrs.It still has the same 686ccF/I motor with a intake system that reburns the excess fuel,it has three seats up front,which is nice for some,4-wheel disc brakes and when in 4-wheel drive the brakes some how work as the engine brake.they also moved the motor under the bed to eliminate some of the noise,so you can forget about keeping the motor clean.the machine could be a good catch for some,I thought it would be more sportier. Got a email from www.atv.com

2015 A/C Sport,With a few add ons..........

Might be ugly and slow but could make a good reliable farm machine. The Rhino is ugly and slow but every time I have ridden with guys that have them they always seem to get you there and back home in the same day.

2009 Prowler XTZ 1000 with a few modifications. Needs paint & powder coating.

I didnt mean anything towards you. Sorry I didnt even read your reply.i just know Yamha makes great products but a Rhino was not for me.
