While not quite what I was hoping for(rzr900/wildcat sport type), the wolverine is growing on me. Provided my GF and I fit comfortably in it, we will be purchasing one this summer. The 50" aspect is a plus for my particular area(Maine) while I love pure sport sxs's I always question if it's really necessary in most situations I've encountered.

Welcome! I have a question - I'm not quite sure what you mean by the 50" aspect is a plus for you. I guess that's not really a question but that's OK. The Wolverine is 60.6" wide. Hopefully that isn't a deal breaker, I do believe this will be a heck of a side x side.

When I first saw the specs, I thought it was 50". It's not a deal breaker as Maine state law is 60" for the the trails. Unfortunately, there are 2 good trails in my area that are gated for 50" but it's something that I can live with. The more I look at it, it's becoming clear it may not be what I would have wanted but what we actually need. I love high performance but my last couple of trail rides in the '12 AC Wildcat I preferred a more casual pace then the pace I normally trail ride at. I guess I am getting "old". :)

While the Wolverine is no performance beast it will run trails all day long 45-50 mph so it's no slug either.

I agree about it being peppy. It seems more in tune with my new preferred riding style. 45-50 is plenty of performance for me these days. I've been riding since 1983 on everything from the atc 110 to the AC Wildcat so I'm as experienced as anyone out there.

Tri moto 200e as my 1st ride back in the good old 80's. I think the Wolverine will be like the Griz 700 not a huge power house but you can use all the power it has and it's really never lacking. I think I may hold off till they release the SE model but I will own one soon!

I just learned a dealership 30 miles away has one(I hope it's still there) through a FB photo posted 2 weeks ago. It's kinda of funny, I have a huge power-sports dealer in town and I've been waiting for them to get one in. I wonder why the smaller dealer got one first? I hope I like what I see.
