    I don’t follow the off road stuff like I do the sleds. But I might be in the market for a sxs. Any idea on when the 2020 sxs’s will release?

    Maybe Yamaha will get more aggressive now that Honda is starting to push the envelope!

    It looks like they are really pushing ahead with their Talon line up! They just released 4 seat versions in the X and R Talons.

    I was looking at getting a yxz but Honda upped their game and came out with the talon and it gas a few features i like over the yxz, hi low range, automatic with paddle shifters and some actual usable bed space, not to mention that awesome handling suspension.
    I can't seem to find the article anywhere but I believe Yamaha is supposed to come out with a new sxs that's going to compete with the Polaris general and can am Maverick, love the general but not so keen on the reliability, just have to wait and see, otherwise a new yxz next spring it is.

    I find it odd they didn't keep the "mud ready" SE package on the Grizzly, seems like it checked most of the "aftermarket" boxes that most people add anyhow. I'm glad I picked up a 19' Backcountry Blue Kodiak 700SE last month, the new color choices are very meh. Been a Honda guy on the ATV side forever but the Kodiak 700se was a far better value, and more powerful than the Rubicon 500 I was looking at.

    My dealer told me that they are announcing their 'big tire' atv in less than 2 weeks.
    Notice that there is not a big tire model in the line up just released, like there was in 19. I'm not sure if this is anything to get excited about, after all, we are talking about the manufacturer who comes out with a good machine on occasion, and then lets the competition catch up and pass them while wondering what just happened.

    I was checking when they released the 2019 side by sides last year. They released the new updated YXZ and the Wolverine X2 in early June of 2018. Maybe they are waiting to see what everybody else has done before they release. Well it seems like all the other OEM's have their 2020's announced. We are waiting Yamaha! LOL!

    Dealer said they decided to push the date out, so we wait to see if that is true. Sorry

    I'd really like something between the Wolverine and the YXZ.
    But the Wolverine X2 R spec may just be my next toy.
