    My neighbor just bought a Polaris 4 seater with 32"s stock. The high end turbo's can run 32's but they cost around $30,000 or more. They both have 24 and 25 inches of wheel travel. The Polaris rep said there was a huge upgrade in everyway to handle the large tires and 72 inch width. Sales in that price range should be low and they are better suited for the race track and the sand dunes. The Talon will be better suited for most and the 4 seat model should be out in a year or so with a few more Honda models in the next few years. Honda can produce 100,000 UTV's a year so they should be able to keep up with the demand in a few months.

    That’s close to accurate but the high end Polaris Turbos come with 32’s and are 25,400 & 28,200 but can be purchased for a couple grand less. My stock 2018 XP1K cost me 17 and change and I run 32” tires on 15”wheels. Power is no problem but 29” to 32” is like gearing up 12% so ground speed may be borderline higher for my type of riding. With the Honda 28” to 32” would be gearing up 16%....thats a lot.

    Sorry guys but I jumped ship I will not buy a first year machine my 2017 pioneer 1000 had enough little issues with the campaign stuff and recalls. I let it go. I have to say it sold right away for a decent price. I bought a 2019 yxz instead of the Talon. The Yxz fit my needs better now with the better gearing and comes with bigger tires and nice wheels and I ordered the turbo for a little extra giddy up. With turbo and factory roof it was out the door for $23575.00 from my local dealer 3 miles down the road where I use to work years ago.

    I would be hard pressed to pass up the new YXZ for a talon at this point.

    I’ll have to take a look at one. Tires don’t look very big, 29’s? My past concern was the lack of front fenders....mud, rocks, etc. No full windshield for me. I have seen them in some pretty knarly places at Moab so they must work!

    Potentially unpopular opinion: The YXZ is better looking than the Talon. I consider Yamaha in line with Honda in terms of reliability: I have to say if I had a spare 20k burning a hole in my pocket, I would have went the same route. Congrats!

    I will be putting up the 29 bighorns up for sale and going with some 30'' dot tires and the turbo is a Dirt launch turbo from Red line performance they are a local shop that does turbos for the yxz and all the short coarse racing guys run them. They make full boost at 3500rpm which really wakes these 3 cylinder motors up on the lower end. So this should be a beast on the trail and I can still go ice racing in the winter and keep up.

    The 2019 was my choice until the Talon spy pictures came out. I have 17,956 miles on my 2016 YXZ with several failures. They fixed enough problems for me but its such a PITA to do a service. There is no other better choice if you want a turbo.

    The XYZ SS has no manual clutch but still has to be manually shifted, correct? In other words, there is no full auto mode like with the Pioneer and Talon?

    I sat in a ‘19 XYZ the other day. Fit and finish was awesome. Loved the seating position and feeling of the steering wheel. Liked the console. Was disappointed the lack of storage.

    Don’t know if I’d always want to be in manual mode or not either.... may not be a deal breaker tho. I’d like to ride one.

    I'm sure that a man could get accustomed to that pretty easily. I was really impressed by the quality feel of the XYZ. My local dealer sells Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Polaris. The Honda and Yamaha are definitely more refined feeling to sit in.

    Ice, I also did the same. Was waiting on the Talon till I looked at the 2019 YXZ SS and all the improvements.I got it a month ago. I haven't had it out yet. Been adding things to it ,getting it ready for spring. Can't wait to hit the trails!

    I only drove mine 1 mile down the road and you can tell 1st gear is lower. I drive my friends 2017 yxz at the ice races quit a bit. It was time for my own. Waiting for the turbo to show up and then it should be a beast on the trail and track. I really like the improvements they did on the 2019, Yamaha has always been good for make improvements from year to year on there stuff even snowmobiles.
