I just got word that it will be wider than the S. One of the truck drivers that deliver for polaris said to day that they are going to have to modfie there ramps that they were not wide enough.

I thought they came in crates on flat beds and were handled with forklifts? scratch

The RZR and Rangers come in rolling chassie in a box trailer double stacked and they are driven off the trucks. The truck drivers use a battery pack to start them. The dearlers have to install the roll cage and add the battery and there ready to go.

The new rzr sounds like its going to be racy to me. Listen to the end of this promo vide, he says "And now, RZR Performance taken to the extreme"

This is the direction I think polaris is going with the new class. Especially if it is wider as rumored. This is the way I look at it. The 4 and the 170 branched from the original 08 rzr into a new breed of rzr so to speak. But the S evolved directly from the 08 rzr and if you put the two stock machines beside each other, its easy to see the marked increase in performance. Now polaris is saying the new one is "RZR Performance taken to the extreme" and in their promo vid they define rzr performance as the ultimate combination of power, suspension, and agility. What kind of machine can I put beside the S and say the S was just the beginning and here is what it has evolved into 1/1/11? True, I am probably 100% wrong but It points in this direction to me.. but doing it RZR style

Ok after reading through some threads on some of the other forums I'm making my speculation.

1) New engine around 850 true cc's with 90hp at the crank.

2) 6 inches wider than the current S model which would make it around 66 inches wide.

3) Longer wheel base than the current S around 80 to 87 inches.

4) Higher ground clearance at around 13.5 to 14 inches.

5) Will do smoky burnouts on pavement at the touch of the throttle lol.

if its 66 inches wide , it wont do any of us a dam bit of good.
no matter how much power it has.
cause it wont fit through the tree's at Brimstone.
and that is a total deal breaker for me.... Rolling Eyes

Maybe Jerrzr is on to something.
A new class of side by sides? hmmm, sport/ute ......say they take a 850 and tweak it a little = 900,960 whatever they want to call it. Now stick that into a Ranger 400 sized (Polaris calls it "Mid-size") vehicle, and add some improved "S" style suspension under it and you would have a direct competitor for the Commanders. This would allow them to continue to claim Rzr is the only true sport style SxS ………….never mind, I’m just typing out loud!

Nothing wrong with typing out loud....but beware of it because it usually makes you look like an a$$! I know because I've done it several times 729242

I don't think it will be for us. I think it will be wider and built for the west coast guys. So I wouldn't put mine up for sale yet.

The biggest thing people have to realize is , alot of our
folks done got there buggy decked out with doors , roof , winch
and all kinds of stuff that may not fit on a whole new designed machine.

that mean you got to start completely over.
and spend 18 to 20 grand all over again.

I bet a lot of people ant ready to do that for a machine
they have not even had a year.... 431114

I just hope the engine fits the current models. That way I can upgrade my RZR to long travel and 1000cc.

I agree with you guys that it will be a West Coast Duner. Running around 66" wide, longer, and taller. All of the trails I ride are narrow and my buddies in their S's follow me everywhere. 6" more is not really that bad. You just have to have a skinny one like the RZR when you ride tight trails.

It just all depends on where you ride. 6 more inches won't cut it where I ride. I had to sell my beadlocks that came on my S and have original S wheels beadlocked just because the other wheels made mine 3" wider and I was having a really hard time getting it through a couple of trails. And several other trails it was just slowing me down. One trail is 57 at Windrock. You have to fit between two rocks about twice as big as a RZR. You can't go around. A standard width RZR S has a hard time making it. I have even thought about selling my Jeep and buying a Redline Revolt just to play with. The 66" width is what is holding me back.

Whats wrong with having the best of both worlds. If this new rzr is a bad as rumored I wont be able to resist it. I will give it a year in production so the bugs can be worked out. I said the same about the commander but it fell way short of my expectation. This one will probably fall short too..it just depends, but I will always keep my old rzr regardless
