    New offering from Polaris

    2016 GENERAL 1000 EPS

    Just saw an article about this on Yahoo so I had to look up some more details. Looks to be an interesting machine. Little more clearance and travel than the Wolvie, bigger motor, and much bigger price tag. I won't ever consider buying one, but I'm sure people will be grabbing them up because its a popo 1000 with a dump bed.

    Come check out our new forum specifically for the new 2016 Polaris General 1000

    I'd have to dig into the specs more, but first impression to me it doesn't seem much different that a rzr

    More or less from what I saw, just with a dump bed.

    It's a wolverine..lol its half rzr and ranger, a good blend of both.. So it is a recreational side by side.. Yamaha just beat then to the punch in that section of the market.

    A bit of a coincidence both are 2016 models.. ? or has it been in the works or is Polaris trying to grab any possible market share.... I've never heard a Polaris owner ask for this type of vehicle. I suspect this is a shot directly at the wolvie, look at the wheel base 81 inches etc..

    I don't think the commander is really sporty enough to be considered in this class. I expect a possible reply from can ask and I'm expecting 5-6 speed manuals in the others in a model year or 2....depending on the sales of the yzx

    LOL, yes this is exactly what lots of Polaris owners have been asking for.

    This is directed at the Commander specifically as you can tell by the name, and the Wolverine and Teryx as smaller competitors. The Wolverine market share is too small to be a big influence. 80-81 inch wheelbase is kinda generic for several of these vehicles in fact Yamaha copied it from the Ranger 900 for the Wolverine.

    The Commander is more sporty than the Wolverine in this class with its puny single 46 hp.

    Don't hold your breath for the rush to manual transmissions.

    Yes, I will be having a General. It is what I hoped the Wolverine would be.

    After doing some more looking, and watching the video, all I can say is meh.... Have to spend $20k to get the model with adjustable suspension like the Wolvie has, and the base model is about $3k more. Plus it's a popo so you'll spend more time working on it than hitting the trails. It is an interesting machine, but i have less invested in mine including all the goodies. Look forward to getting the chance to drag one out of the woods with my puny 700cc single...
