Mini Buggies Just died
« on: September 01, 2015, 08:36:50 PM »
Yamaha came out with a sequential SxS.  989 ccs. 

Short of the desire to build a MC powered buggy one's self, this would seem to be the death blow to MC "sand cars" as we know it.  A strong player to take market share from the remnants of everything but the big LS cars would be my guess. 

DBart did some photo shop.  Personally I like the droop nose for visibility.

It was inevitable. The writing was on the wall for quite some time.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

For 90% of American offroaders, the SXS is prob a better choice.  The sign-n-drive, nationwide dealer support for parts and service, and the aftermarket world for upgrades.  Give it a few more yrs...........

It's just progress. The new Yamaha is awesome.

I agree but ,there are those among us that are capable and willing to actually create something of our own.

Now that might be cool as anything out there. Need to know more but 14K is a bargain for a (hopefully)capable toy.

Looks like a c/g about a mile up though. The vid seems to show it not being too detrimental though. You seen one yet? What do you think of it? BTW,good to hear from you again!!

Hey Fabr   Just seen the video that goes with it there that I posted. My buddy just told me about it this morning.

I just look at it as what Honda SHOULD have did with the Pilot.   

I mean if it has the specs they say a bunch of these on a track would be BETTER than mod pilots I would think.

Reminds me of the Revolts.  Does look high, but center driver looks like it works well.  Sure they left out part where he rolled it!  :m

I'm interested to see how they turn out after the masses get hold of them or IF a single seater will sell well..

If I was smart I would buy one and jsut go have fun.

 Saving for a new house right now so I do got the cash... 

But a roof over the head is priority at this minute.

Course I could get one and a RV and just travel...
