so i just returned from the test drive in denver. number one thing i want to say is the suspension is unreal nothing will even touch it. but.... i was not sold on the power of the machine but as i was told by them the engine is not done and not exactly what its going to be when it hits the floor so who knows. as for transmission seems to shift well but in my opinion this machine still need a parking break besides just a park in the trans. we di find one machine that would only do 41 but me and the guy that was riding it were talking and he and i both agreed that it could have been that the secondary clutch wasn't shifting out do to sand or what.he is die had can-am and said word for word "the suspension would make can-am and polaris xp look like girl machines" but power the can-am and xp would make the wildcat look like a sissy. power steering is awsome but..... it takes 5 square acres to turn around. i did find out that the tires that were on all of these test ride machines are not the ones that are coming on the consumer machine. also the guy i was talking to did say that hmf and or fmf have a machine that they are working there magic on as we speak so im betting when the machine is released they will have aftermarket exhaust very soon.seats and creature comfort is absolutely second to none im 6'1 and fit with more than enough room actually fit better than a prowler. brakes felt as good as any and never made any noise on me. all in all it will be an awesome machine and i still cant wait to get my hands on one of my own.
