We already know or can speculate on what’s coming in a few days. Looks like a 999cc twin cylinder engine, 108 hp with auto transmission. What do you hope or expect to see when we finally see the new Rmax? Will you take a chance on a first year build?

My wish list is a two seater with easy entry, good storage, large fuel tank, 28” - 30” tires, long travel adjustable suspension, comfortable bucket seats, 90” wheelbase, no more than 64” width, and minimum 13” ground clearance. Hopefully it won’t be governed and will be priced competitively.

I would have to agree. Of course that is dependent on the price.

I’m thinking this will be priced very close to a YXZ.

If it's spec'ed similar to the Polaris General XP with a slightly longer wheelbase and a more comfortable cockpit, I'll be happy.

A good trade in value for the 2019 X2 and not a 22K or higher Rmax price lol

I drove a Polaris General. I thought it was fairly comfortable but much louder than my Wolverine.

Having a Gen 1, the noise all be it important is not the defining factor in most of our decisions. Many aspects would supersede it. I believe the competition will not go unnoticed as to what they're offering. Comparisons will be made regardless of ones allegiance, its normal.

Eg Curved front & rear arms for one.

Edit: With larger displacement more noise will result unless more effort is made to minimize it. Whether its a concern to Yamaha is unclear.

I'll probably end up with one provided it's 64" width but not until next spring at the earliest. The Maine riding season winds down in November and I see no point in getting one just to put into immediate storage.

I would purchase it now but our season ends in November also. I have a few outings planned for this year. It would be nice to have it now. I’m sure I’ll get lots of miles before trails close. I agree if it’s wider than 64” I will have to pass.
