10 UTVs YOU DON’T SEE EVERY DAY

-- WILD, WEIRD, EXOTIC & EXTREME -- BMW UTV Is this proof that the German car company is going to start selling UTVs? No, this was built to show how automotive style body work could be made to fit existing UTVs and give them a different look. There have been some custom shops who've made replica style bodies for UTVs using fiberglass, but that might be too brittle to be practical for an off-road vehicle. They would really have to be molded out of plastic to be attractive to most UTV owners. Are there any…

THE ENGINE IN HONDA’S NEW TALON

-- How much horsepower will it have? -- For awhile now the UTV world has been talking about Honda's new Talon. It was just last week that they admitted it does exist. Honda didn't confirm the name, but they did say their new sport UTV will be introduced on November 27. Okay, so that gives us 6 weeks to speculate on what engine will power the Talon. Right off the bat we can assume it'll be in the 1000cc range. It wouldn't be like Honda to go above the standard 1000cc size that the manufacturers use as the limit defining…

OOPS! — WHAT NOT TO DO

-- Wait, that don't look right -- In case you didn't know, the earth's natural terrain is not always smooth and flat. It can have steep hills, deep ruts, big rocks and things to make a perfectly stable UTV tip over. Perhaps even flip upside down if you hit a jump wrong. This is why we strap in tightly and wear helmets when we ride. Here are some photos to illustrate that fact: . Fred was use to leaning his dirt bike into turns, but that doesn't work for UTVs. You're not allowed to laugh until you check first to…

POLARIS GENERAL MAKE-OVER

-- A hot rod for the dirt -- The Polaris General is the right machine for many people. It's a good all around UTV for general usage, but with a proper amount of RZR sportiness. Its 100 horsepower motor provides some spirited acceleration and its 13 inches of suspension travel allows it to cover rough terrain with impressive speed. However, some people like to take a good thing and make it even better. And, the process may involve giving it a unique look from all the others. That was on the mind of Clif Richardson when…
