Posted by UTV Crap on the RF.NET forums:

>>>>New for 2011

The soon to be released 2011 model lineup is sure to shock the current ATV and UTV industry. When Polaris Industries introduced the Ranger RZR model in 2008, they changed the way side by side vehicles were perceived. No longer were they just considered farm implements or job site work vehicle, they brought the "Sport" aspect to the market. Once again they are changing the market for 2011 with their new RZR lineup. Polaris is carrying over the names and models from the 2010 model year, but each model is getting a few substantial changes due to more competition from other manufacturers. The 2011 standard RZR will still be 50" trail compliant, but it will be getting upgrades in a few departments. There will be 3 motor choices for the 2011 RZR, an EFI 500cc twin cylinder will be offered with a base price of $6799. This new economy based RZR is for the owner who wants a sporty side by side but doesn't want the high price that comes along with one. The 800 H.O. engine will be the standard motor in the new RZR, which is carried over from the previous model year RZR-S. And an all new EFI 950 (941cc) twin cylinder power plant will be available in the spring of 2011 for the Limited Edition and Special edition RZR's (pricing is TBD). All of the 2011 RZR's feature an all new frame, which is 6" longer than the previous models to accommodate the new engine choices. Polaris engineers boast that the new frame is 60% stronger than the previous models. The 2011 Polaris RZR-S, and RZR-4 share the option of the 950 engine along with the SE and LE RZR's, along with the 800 H.O. engine from previous model years. The suspension travel is increased to 14" on both models due to a new trailing arm setup in the rear, and longer A arms in the front. All 2011 RZR models will have a ROPS certified roll cage made from 1 3/4" chromoly tubing, along with 4 point racing harness style restraints. A few cosmetic changes are evident on all new models which include new styled plastic fenders, a redesigned roll cage, and a more aggressive styled front end. The new Polaris 950 engine is going to be used in multiple platforms, from the Ranger RZR models to the new 3 wheel "Striker" road bike, which will be released in the summer of 2010. The 950 engine is rated at an impressive 97 horsepower and 76 ft-lbs of torque. <<<

Thought the 500cc RZR is interesting, especially since Yamaha discontinued the 450... someone, at least, is sensitive to the entry-level pricing in this market...

Also the 6" longer frame, and stronger frame on all models. Wonder how the new wheelbase will compare...

Polaris is not going to lay down. They will try to be the next biggest and fastest. I just wish Yamaha would have that attitude......

IMO, if that is true, and not just more rumors, a 500cc twin at $6799 will get a lot of aging boomers off of ATVs and into UTVs...

That's much cheaper than the big 650-700 ATVs...

You are right. We will see a lot of new people enter the SxS world.

I obviously own an S now but a 500 at that price is a steel. It will be a huge seller!

Take a long nap and then maybe you might see something. IMO, if Yammy was coming out with something new in three months, there would be a huge buzz. I don't see anything new from them anytime soon.

Just saying, that came straight from a Yamaha representative's mouth. I am like you, I don't really think there will be any new Yamaha machine out. I still love my Rhino!

I don't think Yamaha will since they have already announced their 2011 models. They are the same. So I would not think they would change anything til some time next year.
