Re: CFMOTO Terracross 600 vs. RZR
Alright, Heres an unbiased opinion. Im on this site only because my wife has a 570 and I have to take care of it. And I like to know about things we paid a ridiculous amount of money for. I have run her 570 many miles and I hate it. It steers for crap, even with the new springs, and 26 inch tires, and the suspension tuned. It does ok for speed, and its nimble enough, but you cant goose it and slide the rear around, at all, unless your in the mud. It has a roof and 5 points, that plus the tires and wheels gets the total over 12k.
I drove the CF Moto 600 at an event where the dealer had some around in Renovo, Pa. It was a 2013. It came with bumpers, the dealer installed different wheels to be sure it could make the PA width issues on trails, no charge, it had front and rear bumpers, a great instrument cluster, better seats, 5 pojnt belts and by god, when you turned the wheel it turned! It was really neat. Polaris should see that. I liked it a lot. It was loud though. inside and out it needs some tweaking yet. So does the 570 though. The CF rode better, handled better and was more impressive looking out of the box.
When we bought the 570 I felt like we bought a toy. This felt like a machine. Im very curious about longevity on it. I like underdogs, I own 3 Kymcos, and with a combined 5200 miles on them we haven't had a single problem. . Im hoping the CF Moto is similar. I don't like a side by side. No body English, you cant ride it. You only steer it that's not for me, but that being said, if I had to run one, if trikes and quads were outlawed, Id buy the CF Moto. At 600 miles on the 570 we had to buy new springs, A arm parts, ball joints, and have gone through 1 starter and 2 solenoids. Now that's driven on Pa DCNR trails. Groomed trails. maybe 75 miles on real woods trails. I dont see how great Polaris is. But I don't see how great Can Am is either, or Yamaha, or Kawasaki. So there's an honest opinion from a guy who really doesn't care about side by sides. Gimme a three wheeler man, I hope I can stay on them till I die!
