Re: what makes this motor a low hp motor
Double the HP? Show me one. Other than the 850 in the new sportsman xp, the can-am 800x is the most powerfull quad engine, and that makes HP in the mid-high 60's which is what...10 or so more hp then the RZR-s 800HO? And Can-am has always had the reputation of high HP motors. Double the hp....dont think so unless you are talking a built motors, and you can make as much power as you want, just depends on $$.
as for the speed comments, its not so much a lack of power, its the weight issue that makes the RZR a little slower than the quads. My raptor 700 will smoke the RZR from start to finish, and it has a smaller motor that makes less hp than the RZR 800 does...but it weighs less than half of the RZR.
