    Why would anyone pay $1000 more for a Rubber band driven sxs?
    Now of course there are a few YouTube video's comparing the Viking to the Gator and even the Ranger 900... But Hum.. I wonder who produced those video's.

    hahhahaa... so the Viking is called a 3 seat with only 8 inches wider then the Pioneer? That tells me that the Pioneer might could be altered or arranged to seat 3 people in the front seat. especially if they are younger.
    what you think

    Was never a big fan of the Yamaha Rhino.My cousin has one with the 660 motor its a 07 model. he's got bucket seats with the engine cowling between the seats.Its really noisy and lots of heat comes from the cowling. the heat part is nice in the winter but with a full cab its loud.He was looking at getting a Viking because of the 3 seat capacity.The motor is under the bed now like the Polaris Ranger 900. Supposed to be a lot quieter in the cabin.I suppose its up to the individual what they prefer I like the looks of the Honda Pioneer now way better the the Big Red .

    Your right about that. The BR was just ugly.

    Looking at the specs between the Pioneer and Viking there is not really that much difference.
