    I heard something about that too... I heard they were announcing a new ride towards the end of the month.
    Maybe the will up the CC's. They been sitting on that 700 for a while too.
    Looks like Honda and Yamaha in a race.
    I sure hope Honda pulls ahead with something great later this year.

    I hope it too.

    I think Honda has done a great work with the pioneer already.

    Great design, somewhere in the meadle between a sport and a utilitary, not like the commander.

    Besides that they don't get in the race for HP, like Polaris or Can Am. I rather prefer a reliable and smooth engine, with great torque, than a HP horse.

    Let's be honest, who likes to go all the way full trhotle all day? Remember slow an steady is the best way, and your ride will be much more enjoyable.

    About yamaha, I like them a lot too, hope they get the rhino just a bit better, like Honda did with the big red.

    Hope Honda brings their new SXS to Europre too, it is the only one out there missing.

    Regards

    Much like Honda, Yamaha has chosen to stick to the utility side of things.
    Today they announced the Yamaha Viking. It will be replacing the Rhino in Yamaha's line.
    You can see more info here.

    I have now made up my mind. I will be buying a Pioneer.

    The pioneer is much better looking.

    In my opinion this is what I'm disappointed with the viking:

    -Not very desireble in terms of design;
    -Looks heavy;
    -No turf mode;
    -Looks unstable, like the rhino did.

    I think Honda has done a much better job.

    PS: And what about them claiming is has a steel bed, not a plastic bed? Steel isn't always better, in this case I rather prefer the pioneers bed.

    Regards to you all guys.

    I agree. with out the truff drive that wide rhino sized Viking will just rip the ground up. It now seems the Pioneer is a better choice for trail riding. The Viking would be a choice if i was a farmer or something.
