2015 Polaris RZR XP1000: started out fun, but ended up going into limp mode and catching my on fire.
2016 Polaris RZR X4P1000 turbo: 2500 moderate miles throughout northern Baja. Only issue was a when my original belt blew at 2000 miles (when I let my buddy drive) this caused a seal leak. Very comfortable to drive in a straight line, handles bumps well, decent power. Very unstable in turns due to high CG. Sold it to a guy who continues to call me about electrical limo mode issues.
2017 Can Am X3 XRS: 1000 moderate miles throughout northern Baja, 2x NORRA 1000 races. 2 belts, 1 disconnected turbo tube. Still running like a champ. Cars handle significantly better than Polaris due to low CG. Power is very impressive. Steering and brakes are worse than Polaris.
Can Am X3 XRS: 4 of my friends and I bought 5 of them. All ran NORRA 1000. No issues.
I will continue to buy Can Am based on performance and reliability.
I agree it’s not real pleasing to the eyes, but I guarantee Honda will sell more and have more success vs Arctic Cat & the XX. It’s a shame too as the XX is the best built platform. Unfortunately Textron does not know or understand the market or how to run the company. Best thing that could happen is the Arctic Cat restructure makes the company look better and worth selling off. Because they will not survive another 2 years selling 4500 XX’s a year, and that was more then any other model Arctic Cat has.
It would be cool if they offered a contingency program that encouraged more teams to build and race Talons... The "rendering" looks cool but if some "non" factory guys did well, it would sell some units IMO.
