I'm in the market for a new UTV and have been looking at the new 1000 Yamaha Rmax. The dealer also suggested the equivalent Kawasaki.

This will only be used on tight trails with lots of roots and rocks.

What's your opinion. I'm mainly looking at these machines because I'm friend with a dealer that carries these brands.

Never owned a UTV, but lots of experience with Hon/Yam/Kaw. IMO, the Yam is the better choice, just going by quality of build, fit/finish/electronics reliability. In my experience, with 30 plus rice burners, Hon/Yam, best quality, then Kaw, with Suz bringing up the rear.

I did feel my KDX200 liquids were a solid performer, and would outrun the others mentioned above.

I know we are all getting older, but unless slow moving, sight seeing, tight trails described, mean 2 wheels, rather than 4!

This trail model is 50” wide, same as an ATV. We have a few forest service trails in our area that are width restricted.

Mine is a Maverick Sport Max (4 seater), and is 60” wide. I’ve been happy with it.

My parents have a 2020 Trail RZR 900 with the Ride Command. That Ride Command is pretty sweet. The suspension is as good if not better than their 2015 RZR 1000XP.

personally, I'm a Honda fan but they seem like dinosaur units compared to what's out there now, and the aftermarket accessories is not as good.

If I were looking for a trail machine today I would go with either a Polaris RZR 900 or the Can-Am Maverick Trail.

I have a Kawasaki Teryx it's a 2 seater with a dump bed. I really like it for trails and using around the farm. I have owned it since 2014, it's been a great little machine. My husband had a CanAm 1000, I hated it, (couldn't see out and scary fast) he sold it. My son has a CanAm 1000 4 seater he likes it, his wife hates it. I would think a Teryx would be easier to haul, not as wide as other models. IMO the CanAm's feel like they might rear up, and I ride horses so I know that feeling.

A friend of mine loves his CanAm x3, and his wife couldn't stand it. He and I talked for a while and I figured out his problem. His wife loves it now since he let 5 pounds of air out of his tires.
