Rzr 800 vs 800s

Hello guys I'm new and I don't have a rzr yet but I will get one in the next month or two. And I was wondering what rzr would be the most trail capable in Arizona. I'm more into just riding some trails and I would want take it hunting with me to. Thanks in advance

It is all about suspension and width, nothing more. If you want a long travel suspension, get the S. If width is important, the std 50 is for the tight trails.

If you are going to hunt with it, they do make a thing called "Pursuit Camo" in the standard with model.

Re: Rzr 800 vs 800s

I'm not familiar with your riding area, but if they don't have the 50-inch width restriction, by all means go with the dash-S model, and preferably the L/E model. The L/E version, in addition to having the superior long-travel suspension, comes with the good Maxxis BigHorn tires and the much-preferred, and serviceable, Fox Podium shocks. My two-bits..........

Cheers

X3 S LE, all the way.

Check used first. There's some good deals out there where people have gone 900. Save yourself a few grand. It'll look used 5 minutes after you unload it anyway.

Re: Rzr 800 vs 800s

I have seen some good deals on this forum. Most of the time the owners have taken decent care of them and have already added the upgrades..

Case in point:

Definitely check CL. I'd go private sale and save some cash. Where are you located some folks on here might be able to help you out. You could also post a wanted to buy ad on CL and here and see what turns up.
