    I could see it as a 60 to 70 hp sled to compete with the Ace 600. Then bring out the 998 in a NA form to give you something in the 90 to 100 hp range!

    That would be a cool idea and then maybe turbo version for another level of engine.

    I see it as a step toward competing in the crossover market. They took a ute and gave it more power.

    But I'm hoping next year they come out with a purpose-built crossover to compete with the General and the Havoc. It'll need 13" or so of travel. That's the market for me, utility with sport power and long travel.

    Just bought one of these new Wolverines. Picking it up tonight. I was going to go with the YXZ but I think this is more practical for work around the house and trail riding at my camp. Maybe I'm getting to old for the high end sports models.

    I'll let you all know what I think. I'm really interested to see how this 2 cylinder engine performs.

    Only a 6 month warranty on these side by sides? Either Yamaha is trying to push extended warranties or they have no confidence in their product anymore.
