Made the mistake of test driving the new 1000 side by side yesterday when purchasing some parts for my 800 S.  

Stated simply, I want one.

Who else has driven one?

I did and I really liked it. For me, the value isn't there vs. my slightly used 900. It would have cost me nearly double what I have in my 900 to get a new 1000, so I passed.

JodyT,

the day that you drive one will be the day that you buy one.

SOme interesting facts: The dealer said one inch narrower than a 900 and 10 inches longer, should be a mountain goat. 29"tires from the factory, and the HP....suspenion is at another level.

I went riding with one a few weeks ago and was really impressed.  He took all the difficult lines and looked like a kid playing with his hotwheels.  He took me a ride in it (wouldn't let me drive because someone totaled his 900) and wow.  We jumped off a loading ramp a bit sideways and it felt like we landed on a pillow.  If I had hit that ramp at that angle on my ATV, it would have been crash city.

I want one. My wallet does not.

I ride with 4 of em, they keep trying to get me to try 1 out. I refuse, cant miss what I've never experienced. And my 800 goes everywhere I need. My thinking is if it wont go then I prolly dont need to be there anyhow. Lol! I just cant part with 19k to have a 110hp limo that I still riding at 5-20mph 95% of the time. I can do that on my 13k machine thats paid for.

DrMud they had one at the spring jamboree you could demo ride. It was mighty tempting, but I passed. Now if they bring it back in the fall, I just may do it... plus I'll have Mandy with me!

I have driven one. They are very over powered for the trials I do. Now, they do ride like a caddy.

the 2015 model lineup has sveral new offerings that will prove interesting, the RZR S is now a 900 S, and they have a Trail Model.
