    Single cylinder engines are known historically for providing good low end torque. Multi cylinders are usually used to lower the reciprocating mass to enable higher rpm. The Wolverine engine uses the latest technology available in any utv that I know of. Some single cylinder engines sound great. Some two cylinder engines sound like a single, (Polaris Star except for the Sportsman XP). Looks is in the eye of the beholder. Chinese passed Yamaha in performance? LOL.
    I think the Wolverine will sell lots better than you obviously think it will.

    I agree except for the sound. Singles always have that choppy sound. My dohc 567cc rzr has great power and torque for it's size.

    With fully adjustable shocks and a full steel skid plate you can get close to what you need for your type riding, and if you do smack a rock, you're covered. Higher ground clearance means less stable.

    I agree the price seems a little high for a 700 single. What is the alternator output? Do the lights have low and high beam? Does the tailgate just come off or can you use it to extend the box for a load? The doors are way to low to keep brush out.

    it's a dohc single, you get as much power as a twin without the bulk and extra moving parts. the tailgate removes only, the box capacity is just 300 lbs. the doors are low for visibility on tight trails and over rocks. unlike the Rhino, this is not a work utv, it's recreational use, hunting, fishing, camping, trail riding

    It sounds silly, the steel exhaust. It should be stainless IMO

    I agree that a single can produce good power and is much less complicated than multi cylinder engines. It probably even gets better fuel economy. Just like others I am looking for a really good deal. The price is about the same as a 570 with eps so probably is correct but just sayin'

    The doors and side bolsters will be the first to go bye bye. Little disappointed that it's a single and not bigger cc. But I wait till I ride one. My 07 rhino had plenty of balls to do what I do just not the suspension. Hopefully this is a little better and I can halfway keep up on the trails with the rzr's.
