    I don't know about foxes, but with a msrp of only $11,295 (for the 5 seater) I believe you get some type of air adjustable shocks and 14" travel.

    Oh, and the warranty is 4 years.

    I didn't know they were a piss poor company or that their products were s***ty though lol.

    I probably wouldn't ever buy one, but it just bugs me that (on paper at least) even this no name company can make a good product at a good price.

    I will be surprised if Honda has a 1000cc turbo. It does make sense that the upscale model would have more HP. The RZR turbo has a 925cc engine and 168 hp. The Maverick engine is a 900cc and has 172 hp. The guys buy them to run them hard and belt drive may be the biggest complaint.

    Yamaha didn't allow access to the computer. It took someone a year to finally crack into the X4 ECU.

    This is was a good point. Powersports techs don't make nearly as much as auto...for traditionally good reasons. But that may have to change. I mean...the guy who couldn't even put the exhaust back together on my 700...am i really supposed to trust him to repair a DCT?

    What about a honda rc51 crotch rocket engine... werent they v-twin with about 120 rear wheel hp? Maybe more torque and less rpm than a cbr 4 cylinder engine. I know those rc51s sure did sound awesome!

    I'm hoping for a smaller machine for the woods but with big tires and a decent amount of travel. Like 30's and 14". If I can't do it with Honda I may have to go this route...

    I'm pretty sure these first models aren't going to be anything I'm really interested in, at least I'm not holding my breath. But I'm hoping that in about three years or so Honda may have caught up. It sounds almost impossible to do, but can-am kinda did that. Few years ago they really didn't have anything, and now they have the x3 and maverick sport with all different specialty models and options.

    Or, I guess I could just get a wolverine rspec and throw bigger tires on with the factory gear reduction. That would be a machine that could go almost anywhere I think.
