Re: new 800 / rumor mill - YES!
I rode it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last Friday was a fun day. We had the Brute Force 750, Polaris's new 800 and the Outlaner 800.
The Brute is the only thing close and its poewer delivery is more abrupt so it feels as powerful, but the outlander 800 is more linear and eats up the terrain.
The front end tracts well and eats up the bumps. The rear rides well but remains very stable feeling. But the thing sounds like a V8 and runs like one too.
All I can say is wow.
The Polaris was better than I had expected: stable, good ride just seemed more lethargic than the others. Don't get me wrong, it is suprisingly quick, but the Brute actually out handled it and the outlander flat spanked it in power.
