Hey Whiskey, need v want is the difference for many picking a machine and a great point to make.
Like TRev said, this thread is about a product report from Yamaha.
Personally I could care less what others spend their money on, and even when someone asks for an opinion, I don't care if they listen or not.
I do have a clevis on the back of my grizzly for those that don't ride a grizzly and need help.

Jim,
Fast Green Convertible "06" 660 on 26" BH OG's with Stock Wheels.
COOP45 Primary, 1.5 mm shim, -1.5 mm belt, Purple Secondary Spring, 21 gram weights, weight covers reduced to 29 mm diameter and a 2 mm Cut Cam Plate. 2 heat range hotter plug, Warn Winch, Passenger Foot Rests, Rock Deflectors, Heated Grips and Hand Mitts, Grab Strap, Cooling System Up-Grade and multiple position mirrors.

A 50" machine wouldn't fit a lot of peoples needs, and even though I'm sure yamaha will have one (I would bet a 50" wolverine) I see why they are a little leary after all the rhino bs.

I hope the personal/fanboy comments weren't aimed at me, I prefer yamaha even though I do honestly believe every manufacturer does at least one thing right. Nothing taken personal over here.
My comments weren't directed at you, more at people that need to be on the attack constantly to feel better about what they have.There's plenty of nice machines out there,each for a different crowd. It's just plain silly to me to be constantly singling out PoPo's when it's not a real comparison. There are far more PoPo's out here than everyone else COMBINED.

If I was rich, I'd get one to play with. Since I'm poor, I'll stick with what I need most and can afford.

It is not possible for one machine to be the best machine for all types of terrain and all user preferences.

There are areas that only have mud bogs to ride in.
There are areas that only have wide open dirt roads.
There are areas that only have sand dunes.
There are areas that only have narrow, twisty mountain trails.
There are areas that only have loose rocky trails.
There are areas that have all of the above.

There are a lot of people who place a higher priority on ground clearance and rock crawling than high end horsepower.
There are a lot of people who place a higher priority on getting the holeshot in a short run.
There are a lot of people who place a higher priority on top speed on a sustained run.
There are a lot of people who place a higher priority on ride comfort.
There are a lot of people who place a higher priority on a sporty suspension and tight steering so you can feel road/trail feedback.

Isn't it just fantastic that there are SO MANY different makes and models of machine out there, so that each of us can evaluate what our local terrain type calls for, and what our priorities are, and pick the right machine for the job?

Wouldn't it completely SUCK if we all had to choose from 2 or 3 different models?

The YXZ1000R is an amazing machine. A triumph for Yamaha. Perfect for the people who want what it is tuned for.
But not the best choice for everyone. Not by a long shot.


Excellent Points! Different strokes for --
By the way, 50" Razor sxs are too wide for Michigan 50" trail unless you are willing to accept high repair bills. They too are amazing ATV's, nimble and fast on the trails but the roll bars hit on trees in the banked turns, tires hit trees, roots and do deflate and the body work gets busted. Been on a group ride with one and they had to bail out and go on a 72" route.
