    I never considered a Polaris product because of their reputation for indifferent quality - I like their designs a lot. I bought a Suzuki Kingquad in 2011 and still have it and it still runs like a watch. If Suzuki made an sxs I'd probably have one of those. But they didn't make the right size ATV for my wife so I bought her a Yamaha Grizzly 450. Although there were some design choices on that machine that I didn't care for, mechanically it was awesome. We sold it to buy the X2, keeping the King because it was more tricked out and more powerful (my wife has gotten used to it). I love the Wolverine. I wasn't going to enter the sxs market until reading of the new Wolverine twin, then that's all I could think of. Haven't looked back.

    I heard that!

    All of our Quadrunners have been great machines starting with the 1984, 125cc, up through the King Quads my daughters ride.
    My 2003 Vinson is still going strong with only battery, brakes and oil changes, its only got 5500 miles on it but none of my Quadrunners required the wrench time this Yamaha has.

    Suzuki is in bed with Kawasaki. A Suzuki would be a rebranded Kawi most likely. Like the 4 wheelers were identical.

    Sure did love the RM's though.

    I had a Kingquad 700 2005 build and was a fabulous ATV Power train drive system, engine and suspension were are excellent. On the NYROC forum many of the parts etc were similar to the Grizzly. I still have 2009 750 though. The 2005 had 13,000km on it when I sold it running great. Voltage regulators were the only part I had to replace from time to time. There were arguable the best ATV out there and went anywhere once the front diff lock were engaged.
