First review from buddy

First ride done. 20 miles in the woods and open picked corn field and hay fields. Buddy drove the XP turbo and I drove KRX, at 10 miles we switched. Night and day difference. KRX is way smoother from initially off the throttle to deep ruts, to deep mud, steep Down hill is amazing. Suspension is just night and day better than the turbo. The car is quieter, smoother, feels way more solid. The turbo is much faster on top end and pills harder In the mid, but in the woods you can drive the KXR faster all day long. It jumps flat, and it just a much much better car all around. Going back tomorrow, I’ll wear a go pro and take video of the ride. I’m so happy with this Kawi. I’ll keep the popo for buddies to ride with me, but I’m driving the Kawi unless I’m going to the dunes , and they are a long way from Iowa, lol.

Man I like that machine and hearing something like that from rzr guy is reassuring. Kawi did an awesome job I think for an all around machine. It’s almost like they listened to people on design and execution.

I sat in one yesterday after picking my pioneer up (recall work). It is big, maybe too big. I'm 6'3" and had ample room. Feels like you are in a car.

Having driven neither, I'd lean toward the talon 1000r. In my opinion the talon looks better and seems to be more trail friendly. The krx looks bland inside to me.

How are they holding up? I never see them down here. I saw one when I was at RRB last year and it looked really good.
