I am planning to give it a good look over and hopefully a good demo ride myself. If I can get enough info from AC and the demo drive, I plan to try and do some type of review of it, compared to my RZR 570.

COOL Dale! I was hoping to see such.
I am so torn.
The only thing for certain is I will be getting a SXS soon.

Gary the only advice I can give you, is test drive as many different models that you can. You are the one that will have to live with what you buy. I had so many people wanting me to get what they had. I drove almost every model from the bigest & fastest and everything in between, then I made my decision..and I am happy with what I have.

I would deffinatly give this a look before I made a final decision, as I am sure you only want a 2 seater

Keeping an open mind. The T2 is still there. It might be a close 3rd right now

What's your list Gary? I'm with Dale (& biased I'll admit) but after 1200 miles and only a busted floorboard, I think the the T2/T4 platform is hard to beat in performance, reliability, and standard warranty. NO ONE had the confidence in their sxs other than Kawi to offer a standard 3 year warranty.

I am like MattN03 I love my T4 and had a T2 liked both of them the only thing that I would have changed about the T2 was the trans and in the 2014 T2 I think they did.  I our group we had about one of each model except a artic cat and they all done just as good as the other for were we ride I guess it all comes down to the price and what you like in the features of the rides. The only one that I am not impressed with for the price are the commanders and because we had 2 in our group and had a lot of trouble out of one but it was in the mud alot.  But they are sporty with that 1000cc motor.

Gary, FWIW, I've always had a soft spot for the Wildcat 1000 Smile

Today’s list is as follows:
1. AC Trail
2. Polaris 570 or 800 (50 inch)
3. T2
4. Honda (only because the reliability is near the top)

The Can AM, the large AC, and the Yamaha do not make the list. I MIGHT consider a John Deer but maybe not too.

That ACE is not even in the running right now. It could be in the future. But not now

T2 and the Honda are getting more distance

Biggest thing on the artichoke is it won't have much accessories for awhile.

I looked at the artic cat trail addition, Friday.

What I did not like:

1. The clutch box is the inner fender well for the driver rear tire, can see rocks and sticks going through that. Will need a cover mod.

2. The front box, directly in front of the driver has a huge area with just a piece of plastic between you and the sticks or logs that might come through, would take some serious fabrication to make this area safe from jousting.

3. The quality just seemed flimsy.

4. I did not bend over and look under it so don't know.

Conclusion, If I was buying today, I would take a hard look at the Kawa T2, new one, the RZR -S, or the John Deere. (I have never looked at the John Deere, but my needs have changed since buying the farm).
