I saw this, and thought it was pretty cool:

The Wolverine R-Spec’s narrow chassis with class-exclusive full underbody skidplates lets it glide over many obstacles that might hold others back…and those skidplates are swept up more than two inches on each side to maximize clearance at the wheels.
What do you guys think?

I like that concept. Hopefully we get to see more pictures of how that looks on the machine here in a few minutes.

It's a very well designed crossover machine with all the spec numbers in the competitive range of it's competition.

I basically like the total concept of the Wolverine.
I am an old retired rock crawler that has moved to smaller less labor intensive vehicles that I can use to ride with my family and non rock crawling friends. (My bro and cuz and I sneak out and do the more challenging stuff).
I presently have a mid size Ranger 800 and it does very well for its size, very stable for its wheelbase and very maneuverable and capable. But, it has a 72" wheelbase and it is not designed for ravines and ditches and side hills with trees, etc as much as it is designed for farm and yard utility and less steep trail use.
I don't want a RZR or Wildcat, (note the 'old' comment above).
The Wolverine is basically the generic version of the vehicle I would build to do what I want a UTV to do for me. I wish it had a couple more inches of wheel travel and turf mode, but if the shocks are good it will be good.

I like the low door curb height. Nice storage in glovebox and under armrest. I like the dif lock and decent control. I agree about the down turned "A" arms. Everyone should do that. I like 26 " tires with room for larger.

I like the fact that it is a Yamaha! I am on my 2nd Grizzly 700 and love the machine design and reliability. I retired my 2008 Grizzly with 14,700 miles of trouble free riding. I am keeping a close watch on the Wolverine and may add this to my fleet. Reliability is most important to me because I ride alone a lot in the Arizona desert and Utah.
