Hey everyone, new to the forum and I'm looking to buy my first UTV. My budget is about $18,000. I live in South Florida so mostly sandy wooded trails. I'd also travel to the Carolinas, Georgia etc.

I'm tore between the 2017 Yamaha XYZ 1000r ss se and the 2017 Polaris RZR 1000 XP.

I searched the Yamaha forums for the pros and cons and basically it seems the Yamaha is geared towards dune riding unless you put in a heavy flywheel and some other mods.

I searched the Polaris forums and I hear about how they don't stand behind their products and they tend to break often.

This leads me to my dilemma. I like the Yamaha because I've owned them in the past (atv, dirtbike) and they have been bulletproof. I like the Polaris because it seems more suited for the landscape I will be riding in but I'm worried about longevity.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

Dead Forum .. ...see ya!

Yes, it has been pretty dead in certain forums here lately, so sorry  you haven't gotten an answer on your topic. There are some veteran members that do a great job of helping others but sometimes it takes a bit. Here are some comparisons from other sites if you haven't seen them yet 😁
