thanks guys

What kind of use will it get? All recreational? Or some work also? Terrain you'll be using it on?

Ok, so sounds like some long travel suspension is a must. Im sure you'd want the most power/performance you can get also. With that in mind, i'd recommend you take a look at the Polaris RZR S (even though im not the biggest fan of polaris, this is about the best performing one out there), also maybe look into the Kawasaki Teryx and a quality long travel system for it. The motor in the Teryx has some awesome potential.

I'd say dont go below a 660cc Rhino. My dad's got one and we take it to the dunes every once in a while. Its underpowered for climbing IMO, and governed to about 40mph stock(with aftermarket clutching for the CVT and a rev box it should be capable of 50). Its great on trails with the front and rear independent and lockers though, plenty of power there. The RZR 800 will do about 60mph stock, Teryx 750 somewhere in the 50's stock.

RZR if you want it purely for recreation. There are quite a few choices if you want one that can be used for work though.

I agree......you want a RZR if it's purely play and a teryx if you plan on doing any work.
