POLARIS COMPARISON: RZR XP 1000 VS. GENERAL DELUXE

RZR XP 1000 VS. GENERAL It’s no secret that Polaris has the most complete line of off-road vehicles, especially in the SxS category. From the original Ranger and RZR to the growing line of Generals, the choices are almost overwhelming. Although the Ranger is a dedicated workhorse, it is no slouch on the trails; however, its […]

CAN-AM X3 X RC TURBO

CAN-AM X3 X RC TURBO If you’re looking for a sport UTV and you’ve wondered if you really need a rock-crawling model, you do. If you never enter the King of the Hammers race or go to Moab, you’ll use every extra the X rc has in normal trail riding sooner or later, and some […]

CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 TURBO RR VS. POLARIS RZR PRO XP ULTIMATE

X3 TURBO RR VS RZR PRO XP We might be jumping the gun at the moment, but as of press time, Polaris hadn’t announced a wide version of the new RZR Pro XP that we could compare to Can-Am’s top-of-the-line Maverick X3 X rs Turbo RR; however, at $27,999 (RZR) and $27,499 (X3), these two […]

POLARIS GENERAL DELUXE

POLARIS GENERAL DELUXE Sport UTVs may be the most fun invention of modern times, and utility UTVs may be the most useful. So, is it at all surprising that the Polaris General sport utility machine is so popular? Also called crossover UTVs, Polaris has expanded the General family to eight machines—five 2-seaters and three 4-seaters—to […]

2020 CFMOTO UFORCE 1000

2020 CFMOTO UFORCE 1000 First it was the ATV, and now utility UTVs are taking over job sites, ranches and farms. Their handiness and price make them worth considering if you need that “right tool for the job.” Some of those tools are not only good for work, they are sporty enough to rip down […]

POLARIS RZR XP1000 PREMIUM Now in its seventh year of production, the 2020 Polaris RZR XP 1000 comes in Base, Limited and Premium packages, plus High Lifter and Rocks & Trails editions.

TEST: MASSIMO T-BOSS 550F

MASSIMO T-BOSS 550F Massimo extends the T-Boss 550 line to three, with the original 550 being joined by the 550X Golf with rear seats instead of a bed and the 550F with a long bed. Although roosting a golf course with a UTV sounds like fun, we got the Massimo T-Boss 550F utility machine for […]

HONDA PIONEER 700-4 DELUXE

HONDA PIONEER 700-4 DELUXE The Honda Pioneer 700-4 Deluxe lets you spend less without compromising. Let’s say you like the Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe’s belt-less geared transmission, convertible multi-passenger seating, power steering, painted bodywork and aluminum wheels, but you’ve only got about $14,000, not $18,000, to spend. If you don’t need 1000-class power, the 700-4 Deluxe […]

2020 X3 Xrs TURBO-RR

2020 X3 Xrs TURBO-RR Can-Am not only has the largest lineup of high-performance UTVs, the company lays claim to the highest horsepower numbers as well. Whether we need 195 horsepower or not, there are plenty who just want it. Surprisingly, there are many more who want even more than that; however, the machine with the […]

MAVERICK SPORT X XC

Can-Am’s Maverick Sports began as 60-inch-wide machines, so the Sport name became synonymous with its 60-inch width. There are still 60-inch Maverick Sports, but Can-Am’s 64-inch-wide Maverick Sport X rc and Maverick Sport X mr broke the 60-inch barrier last year, and they’re joined by the new 64-inch-wide Maverick Sport X xc for 2020. WHAT […]

ARCTIC CAT WILDCAT XX

Arctic Cat’s Wildcat 1000s led to the collaboration between Arctic Cat engineers and Robby Gordon to develop the Arctic Cat Wildcat XX, the most technologically advanced sport UTV of 2018. The XX bristled with Trophy Truck technology and mated the Yamaha YXZ1000R triple-cylinder engine with a TEAM Rapid Response CVT. For 2019, the Textron Wildcat […]

All three 3-seat Defender HD10s included five years of upgrades and refinements, and we tested th e […]

HONDA TALON 1000R LONG TERM TEST

The Honda Talon 1000R was the most anticipated sport SxS since the Yamaha YXZ1000R three years earlier. After getting our hands on the Talon, we did the usual comparisons (March 2020) and tests with it, putting lots of miles on it—lots and lots of miles. Since June, we’ve put over 2500 miles on the Talon. […]
