Yes. Just like last year. They ran 2 900's last year.

"we could waste countless hours testing like those other guys..."

dear polaris,
the r in r&d stands for research, not release. also you might consider that after the shock fiasco on this xp and the faulty airbox and fires on the last xp, the first line in your advertisement for new colors and seat covers might be interpreted as a poor development practice rather than just patting oneself on the back.

No, we just release new models and let the public/consumer find the problems with our design......But still charge an arm and a leg for our products.

Agreed! I'm still waiting on my pre-order of the XP41k ... someone pointed out you could buy a Jeep for the same money. Heat, AC, Stereo, windsheild, full doors, drive to your destination with out trailer, etc.

Same thoughts as me lol. They really stuck their foot in there mouth in that one. I really whish I would have held on to my 900 and just dealt with its problems. I honestly thought this 1000 would have all those issues addressed, boy was I wrong.

On a positive note I think the blue suspension components look good.

Re: RZR 1000 Dakar Announced

I can't imagine a higher priced XP1000 without more performance.
But there it is.

"Bold New Graphics" has got to be the worst thing to say to describe an off-road vehicle or PWC.
They were "buzz words" Kawasaki used over the decade that they lost sales and an entire World Wide market to Sea Doo.
Sea Doo became a house hold name,, Kawasaki became "Bold new Graphics."

You'll see that quoted in upcoming Can Am comparison advertising if they release an up graded Maverick.
They've seen it before.
