CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 XD S TURBO RR

At $25,099, the 64-inch-wide X3 X ds Turbo RR is the lowest-priced 2021 195-horsepower Turbo RR-powered X3. It’s also the lightest of the X3 Turbo RR models, which makes it the quickest-accelerating X3. Owners who want to tame the X3 for less experienced drivers can replace the sport key with the standard key. Turbo RR models also feature Can-Am’s Smart-Lok front differential.

The X ds Turbo RR is better for tighter conditions than the 72-inch-wide X3s at the expense of some ability to handle high-speed whoops. With the longest wheelbase in its class, the X3 is still very stable at high speeds. It has 20 inches of travel front and rear using Fox 2.5 Podium RC2 shocks and 29-inch tires on 14-inch beadlock wheels.   Instrumentation is provided by a 7.6-inch lighted display. A new Desert Tan, Carbon Black & Can-Am Red color scheme is available for 2021.

CFMOTO ZFORCE 950 SPORT

The CFMoto ZForce 950 Sport’s 963cc, 79-horsepower, V-twin engine is within a few cc’s of many “1000s,” and it’s capable of true liter-class performance. You can tune the engine performance to your driving style or terrain conditions with the standard/sport mode selector on the dash. The 950 Sport weighs just 1230 pounds dry, giving this machine a potent power-to-weight ratio. This 60-inch-wide sport machine has double-A-arm front suspension and multi-link trailing-arm rear suspension, a rarity on 60-inch UTVs.

The CFMoto ZForce 950 Sport also comes with rock sliders, fully adjustable piggyback reservoir shocks, 14-inch cast-aluminum wheels, 27-inch CST tires, cutting-edge styling, a roof, a 3000-pound winch, full skid plate, LED headlights, a multifunction instrument display with Bluetooth call indicator, 12-volt and USB power ports, and a 2-inch hitch receiver—features you have to add to many sport UTVs.

HONDA

HONDA TALON 1000R/1000R FOX LIVE VALVE

Two versions of Honda’s 68.4-inch-wide sport machine, the Talon 1000R, are available for 2021—the base model with Fox QS3 compression-adjustable shocks and the new Fox Live Valve. Both have 17.7 inches of travel up front and 20.1 inches in the rear. Honda’s computer-controlled Fox Live Valve suspension delivers a smoother ride in slow and fast driving, and the system also offers better control and stability because it’s so aware and responds so quickly. Sensors monitor the engine, transmission, steering, brakes, G-forces, and the vehicle’s angle and continuously adjust the suspension automatically. Honda’s Live Valve suspension also offers two dashboard button-selectable modes—a comfort-focused standard mode and sport mode for fast driving.

Honda’s unique, geared, 6-speed transmission has no drive belt to wear or break, and it offers automatic and manual shifting modes, with sport and normal automatic shift programs, plus low and high range. The Live Valve model also has launch mode, which allows full throttle acceleration from a dead stop.

POLARIS RZR PRO XP SPORT/PREMIUM/ULTIMATE

The 2021 RZR Pro XP line receives extensive upgrades for 2021. New wheels are 18-percent lighter to improve acceleration and suspension performance. Updated rear tender springs last longer and improve suspension performance. Improved clutch alignment reduces shift effort. Door latch bumper updates prevent the doors from rattling. The Rockford Fosgate audio system has 2.5-times greater volume output, better bass tune and better sound quality at higher volumes. Improved Ride Command has configurable gauges, and the new Follow Mode function on Group Ride. Just select the leader of a ride group, and this new feature will leave a track on the map that can be followed by others. The Pro XP Premium trim now comes with Ride Command with an integrated, 7-inch touch display and Rockford Fosgate audio. Material used for the engine intake is now blow molded, resulting in improved durability at higher temperatures, increasing the ability to go full throttle longer. Improved rear shock guards now feature sides that index to the shock to help avoid rotation.

These 64-inch-wide, turbocharged, 181-horsepower machines are available in three trim levels: Sport, Premium and Ultimate. The Premium package adds Ride Command, Rockford Fosgate audio, LED accent lighting, six-point harnesses and a telescoping wheel.

The RZR Trail S 1000 is a 60-inch-wide sport machine with a 100-horsepower, double-overhead-cam, eight-valve twin and a CVT with engine braking. This machine’s light weight lets it accelerate nearly as hard as the more powerful RZR XP 1000.

Double-A-arm front and rear suspension works with WER needle shocks to offer more than 12 inches of travel up front and 13.2 inches out back. Tool-less, knob-type compression-damping adjusters on the shocks make it easy to take advantage of the suspension’s adjustability.

The RZR S 1000 comes with power steering, painted bodywork and cast aluminum wheels. It also has quarter doors rather than nets and a roomy, comfortable cabin with good seats.

YAMAHA

YAMAHA YXZ1000R SS/SE/XT-R

The YXZ Sport Shift (SS) has a geared five-speed transmission with an automatic clutch rather than the belt-type CVTs found on most UTVs. You shift gears with sports car-type paddle shifters, and the system even automatically downshifts if you forget to. Upgraded pedals and paddle shifters improve control. Lower gearing; a revised shock and EPS tuning; 29-inch, 8-ply Bighorn tires on wheels with a 4/156-bolt pattern; a rear radiator and a new cage were added in 2019, making the YXZ faster and easier to drive in lower-speed, technical trails and wide-open western conditions. The SE gets high-end Fox Podium RC2 dual-spring shocks with adjustable crossovers, beadlock wheels, upgraded center and interior lighting, extra under-body protection, contrast-stitched seats, high-spec interior controls, a roof, rear-view mirror and Yamaha Black or White painted bodywork.

The XT-R model comes with all the cool stuff you get with the YXZ SS SE, plus Covert Green painted bodywork, upgraded lights, contrasting beadlock wheels, a custom front grab bar and Warn winch, a roof, contrast-stitched seats and Maxxis Carnage tires.
