I get the first one with power steering my dealer gets. Any color is OK. The suspension and power are good enough to replace my 2011 RZR 900. Most of my fast pace riding is below 50 mph now and the Wolverine will have enough performance to back it in on the corners. My RZR 900 is near 10,000 miles but still in great shape due to all the new parts it takes to keep it running like new. It cost about $5,000 for every 10,000 miles if you get a good one. The Wolverine will be my 11th side by side. It looks like the only improvement needed for high mileage use will be running the belt drive air intake up between the seats for clean air. I put on over 50,000 miles on side by sides and go riding around 6 days a week. I have been retired for 19 years now and still like fun in the fast lane. I'm too old for motorcycles but the fast pace rides and rock crawling in side by sides really make my day. Life is Good.

Congrats Bob! What's the ETA on the machine? Be sure to post some photos when you get it, you might just be the first one on the forum!

You young guys make sure you keep the wife happy. A happy wife makes a happy life. If moms not happy no one will be happy. My wife made sure I could retire young, buy lots of toys, and go riding nearly everyday. Motorcycles, Mt Bikes, Quads, and now side by sides. I even have fun running the lawn mower. I'm stupid so it was important to marry a really smart women and listen to her on important decisions. I have the Pioneer 700 and RZR 900 loaded up for a few days of camping and riding in the desert tomorrow.

One of the Yamaha video's shows the Teryx and Wolverine shock side by side. Another video says the Wolverine has more HP then the Teryx and the Teryx has 57 hp. In a drag race they are pretty close but the Yamaha is a bit faster.

Do you know where the videos are, I can't find them?

Lol if I listened to my wife I wouldn't own any side by sides and I'd probably have a few more kids. Sounds like you got a good one sir. Wifey hates my sxs, snowmobile, dog, pretty much anything that takes time away from her.

HondaBob,

You are my new hero with all of those offroad miles! What desert are you riding in? I am in AZ.

Is there a release date for the Wolverine?

Frank I ride mostly Williams, Congress, Wickenburg, and Prescott. We did 90 miles yesterday, today was trail maintenance removing down trees South of Prescott. I do some 160 mile rides from Yarnell to Buckeye and back with Lunch at the truck stop on I-10 West of the Hassayampa wash. Also from Prescott to Wickenburg and back. Both are fast pace all day rides. You might want to meet the guys in Wickenburg. We have lunch at Subway most of the time. The Wolverine should be at most dealers in April unless we get one in late March.

Where did you hear it pegs at 50? They aren't even available to test until late March.

The Teryx will only run 51-52 mph in factory tune.
