    I'm more of a recreational trail rider and most of our trails have a 35 mph speed limit so this machine would offer all that I would need in most cases. There is lots of road riding you can do without this speed limitation in our state. To me, the Kawi really looks like a well-blended machine and could work great for a lot of people if they're willing to be honest with themselves and not succumb to peer pressure. However, the 68" width is a "no-go" here in MN with a 65" width restriction - it will have to be registered as an ORV rather than a UTV and that severely limits riding destinations. DNR has been ticketing for width this season and lots of people have been fined. We also have lots of 50" limited trails too so it makes me wonder why our home-state manufacturer build a 55" wide quad. I guess they plan on paying lobbyists to change our current restrictions.

    Out of curiosity I went over to my brothers place and measured his RZR XP and it measured 67 inches wide and is stock. I've read on the Polaris forum that they like to post the width of their machines with it jacked up so it pulls them in a little. That being the case I would say the width probably is not as big of an issue for some (not saying all) as people seem to be making it out to be.

    James Iím curious why you think a machine that has zero trail time, has not been proven to be reliable, is all of a sudden more durable than YXZ? Do you own a Yxz? Have you driven a YXZ? I own a 2017 yxz ss model I have had ZERO issues with the machine. I also own a 2016 Wolverine no issues with it either. The only issues with a YXZ is (1) inexperience (2) donít understand how to drive it. (3) Try do make it do something it was not designed to perform. The YXZ is a pure speed demon it was not designed for rock climbing, deep mudd, or slow trail riding. The 2016-2018 is pure speed machines dunes and desert riding or fast trails. If you rode 2 stroke dirt bikes then driving a YXZ is not a problem. But to say something is more durable without any trail time well is just #$$&$$. I like Kawasaki I have owned several but time will tell how durable it will be.

    Kawasaki appears to have truly done their homework in offering a one-size-fits-all machine aside from it's width. Many states have the 65" limit and we're still struggling with that in Maine because of some landowners. If width wasn't an issue, I would probably take this new Kawasaki over the Honda Talon. As others have stated, if riders could put peer pressure and pride aside, most would be truly happy with the KRX in stock form.

    I was able to look at one at Bangor Motorsports this afternoon. It happened to be sitting right next to a Honda Talon X. It made the Talon seem like a bad joke. It's huge and it's components are extremely beefy. My 6' 280lb frame felt the ergonomics were spot on with plenty of legroom and sitting upright enough so you had good visibility. I was allowed to fire it up and even in a metal storage shed it wasn't overly loud at idle and yet sounded great. Holding a conversation at 30mph with helmets remains to be seen or heard. My two initial complaints are no center console for storage and arm rest. Sorry, a machine of this caliber and size should have at least a small one standard. The other complaint is the passenger grab bar could use a little refinement. It's going to be a serious rattle trap unless you wrap it in a piece of rubber from an inner-tube or something. I did walk away impressed with this new offering from Kawasaki.

    My brother in law said he read something about the engine brake grabbing hard if they roll backwards on a slope and making them unstable. I have no idea if that’s even possible or not but he claims on the teryx forums they have already talked about a few rollovers
