Who would rather have had a 4 cylinder apex derived engine?...I'm guessing most, so why didn't Yamaha put the 4-cyl. in this?

I'm guessing they're testing out the "pure sport" waters with a less expensive 3 cyl. engine.

I'll be a little upset if I pour $21k into the yxz and a year later they come out with the 4 cyl. version...:mad:

Because they had to stay under 1000cc would be my guess.

Independent Dynotech Research testing confirms Genesis® Top Performance Engine output.

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI. –Yamaha engineers increased the performance of the new Apex by making a host of small updates that resulted in a new peak horsepower of 162.8 in independent Dynotech Research testing on a 2011 preproduction unit. That’s a nearly 10 percent increase over the previous-generation 4-cylinder Genesis engine. It boasts a ridiculously wide torque curve with a remarkable peak of 109.8 ft/lbs at 7300 rpm for arm-stretching acceleration. Additionally, it features the first Exhaust Ultimate Performance, or EXUP® valve found in a snowmobile.

Yes, PLEASE

Funny, there's rumor that Honda might put a 4-banger K20 motor in the sport sxs that their are allegedly developing. Competition, it's a wonderful thing.

I would love that option! I have a supercharger on mine and it sounds ridiculously Bad Ass, IMHO! The sound isn't changed due to the exhaust side impeller on the turbo. Here is a video of one that sounds similar...

Use low range often on the RZR, pulling the 4x8 fire wood trailer thru the woods and spraying the pasture. Don't think I could do either without the low range.
