What UTV do you have or will be getting? Would you buy again? If not what would you buy. Why did you buy this unit?

Thanks

KC

Kawaski Teryx. Wider, more stable, v-twin motor, beefier suspension.

The only other machine I considered was the Rhino...not a big fan of the style of the Ranger and I need to be able to carry more people than what I can with a Rzr.

They are all great machines, I am sure whichever one I chose I would have had a blast with.

With that said, I could not be happier with the Teryx.

I have a Rhino. But if I were buying new right now I would buy a Teryx. I like the size and comfort of the Teryx interior better than the Rhino. And I like the V-twin Kawi motor much better than the rather anemic feeling motor in the Rhino.

3TV would you consider the Rhino 700 EFI?

I have a couple of vehicles myself. I just got the teryx about 2 weeks ago and is rides great. I was almost there with the rhino but when I google to try to find more info on it the first things that popped up were lawyers ads for lawsuits. No a good thing. It was one of those two that I was intrested in. I say it is mine but my dad just got this kick ass mules deisel with two like a bus. He also has a seat put in by this company UV Country in houston. He said he could have done alittle more but he is going back in a week. I hae not been over there because when I pulled up he was already riding the teryx at the house. He told me it was like a candy store.

No. I would not buy another Rhino. I like my Rhino the way it is now, but it cost thousands of dollars to make it perform like it should. I had the chance to ride in a Rhino 700 that was the silver special edition with sport shocks, and it shocked me. It was so slow, tippy, and wallowy feeling that I spent the whole ride wondering how the driver (I was the passenger) even kept control of the vehicle. I must be spoiled with my long travel Rhino that has some power mods done to it. There is no way I would spend the money they are asking for a new Rhino. They are the all time dog of the century in the power department.

I have test drove a Teryx, and for a stock side by side I thought it did really quite well. It had noticeably more power than the Rhino, a more stable securely planted feel to it, and better suspension. I didn't think there was much of a contest, the Teryx felt much better to me.

For me to buy another Rhino Yamaha would have to make some major improvements. Considering how detuned the side by side engines are in stock form they would need a minimum of 800cc, or preferably 950cc to 1000cc. They also need to feel far more stable, and they need better steering. Why doesn't Yamaha put the power steering from the Grizzly on the Rhino? For the incredibly high price of Rhino's this year the power steering should be standard equipment.
