2015 Can-Am Maverick 1000R X ds First Ride

2015 Can-Am Maverick 1000R X ds First Ride

Can-Am answers the age old axiom, ’there’s no replacement for displacement’, by fitting a turbocharger to its sporty Maverick X ds side-by-side ($22,999). We romped around California’s adult-sized sandbox of Glamis to find out how it performs. In the side-by-side business bigger is most definitely better. Anxious to steal a piece of the performance market,…

2015 Polaris RZR S 900 First Ride

2015 Polaris RZR S 900 First Ride

“Is it better than the XP 900?” That is the question that has been posed to me multiple times since my return for the 2015 Polaris RZR S 900 press introduction in Utah last week. And while it is a legitimate question, that really isn’t the point. The RZR S 900 is not meant to…

Review by Stephen Anderson Recently I was riding the Hatfield-McCoy Trails in Southern West Virginia on a sunny Tuesday morning. The Hatfield-McCoy Trails are basically in my backyard so I know every mountaintop stop to get a signal to check for missed calls, texts, and emails. You know… all that junk we can’t seem to…

In a recent conversation with 4WheelDirt.com Editor Justin Dawes, the question came up. “Would you like to go check out Honda’s new side-by-side for us?” My eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas, dreaming of the big-bore, sport UTV we’ve all been waiting on from Big Red.

2013 Polaris RZR XP900 Racing Review 0

This Polaris XP900’s all-round performance is what many buyers are searching for when they hit the showroom floor. Most OHV drivers love different environments, from sand to more technical hard terrain and trail riding. With the XP900 drivers don’t have to purchase separate vehicles for each off-road discipline, as the RZR is all those vehicles,…

2014 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE First Ride 0

Race-bred ATVs are a blast off-road, but let’s be honest; comfort is not one of their strong suits. If you like hauling the mail, blasting whoops and getting some air but find the cockpit of a MX racer comparable to a torture rack, then the Yamaha Raptor 700R could very well be the machine for…
