It’ll take a bit to throw Polaris! They make more power period. They have dealerships pushing them for kickbacks, parts and service plus secondary sales before the rig gets too many miles, it’s time for another. And those pretty stickers lol. Until Honda power plant has some real balls it’s not going to take enough from Polaris or Can Am to matter. They will even be 20hp off of Yami in stock trim even before the factory turbo setup on the Yami. It’s going to be a tough fight at 100hp.I agree the Yamaha YXZ 1000r SS is the direct target Honda is aiming for machine wise. But knocking off the market giant cannibalizing Polaris sales is where the money is at. Go for the guy with 45% market share, not the one with 9%.
They need to allow them to be opened up a bit from aftermarket world cheaply. And again they need to come out swinging without any issues to be considered among the masses.
