New model shipping end of this month, per a dealer on the webinar. Not sure the pracitcality of it. I can see the XP being stretched, but this is a fun machine seeming to be reduced in its abilities. Looks a little low to the ground to me. I wonder what the breakover angle will be. And raising it would probably make it pretty tippy. That on pic where it is turning down hill looks like a recipe for disaster.

I agree with you on not being too practical for tight trail riding, but I have seen some crew that could keep up with the RZRs, but that mostly was the driver (Nothing will slow him down). I think people in the wide open spaces, will be more like to buy them.

The tight trail thing isn't as bad as it seems, we take the full size Rangers through some pretty tight stuff. Sometimes ya just have to run it over 8)

After watching some Ranger Crew machines go through seemingly impossible trails, I am not a bit concerned about these. You got to remember the new relationship with Robby Gordon and Polaris. With Robby's input into this machine, the way he can drive, I am sure it is one awesome ride. He wouldn't put his name on just any machine. You can take that to the bank!! I would like to drive one though just to see.
