In the SXS world, nothing will ever "outsell" the other manufacturers. There is always something out there being built that is better than what is currently available .
I'd have to agree with you although I don't see the tranny as being the main issue. Look at the ATVs out there. Polaris still seems to sell more than the other manf even though the others are as good or better. Not really sure of the reason. Dealer network, loyalty, price?Overall, I don't think so. It will be a big hit with folks (like me) that like to ride fast and aggressive. Like dirt bike/sport quad riders. But I think there are a lot of people out there who like going fast, but don't want to mess with shifting gears all the time. The good old CVT tranny works great for them. I don't see RZRs and Mavericks becoming extinct any time soon.
PoPo people are brand loyal. I think everybody else just wants the best thing available.People are way to brand loyal for that to ever happen.
Could not agree more..I know plenty of Yamaha,Cat and Can Am guys with blinders also.
I'm like you. I ride a Raptor and a CRF450, so shifting up and down is just part of riding. I guess my main point is this new manual shift speed machine probably wont pose a huge threat to the mainstream SxS market.I will not have a problem up shifting nor down shifting in any trail, in fact I will love it more just to be in the gear that I want to be in n to have that power when I want it. I think its going to be great for my style of driving period.
Wow! Just saw you posting as recently as yesterday. What the heck happened? Didn't see anything bad unless it got deleted.I got banned on the rzr forum for drinking the yamaha koolaide and im a rzr owner. Go figure.
