I think the interior and features of the Maverick are better and the feel while sitting in it is better then the rzr, but the suspension and handling on the rzr look to be better. I don't like the fact that aftermarket stuff seem to cost more for the Maverick vs the rzr from what i've found. I've also heard the maverick costs vs rzr costs for service is much higher? A friend of mine just bought a new rzr 1000 two weeks ago and that thing is a beast when i got to ride in it. I haven't gotten to ride in a maverick yet, but i'm assuming it's going to be really close power wise to the rzr 1000? From everything else i've read it seems as though the axles on both the rzr and maverick are weak and need to be replaced asap? I like the fact the rzr has a longer wheel base and have the bigger tires stock. How's the stock clutching on the maverick? Is it worth upgrading or is stock fine? What other known problems or upgrades need to be done to the maverick before doing some hardcore trail riding? I'm looking to make a decision in the next week or two and going to buy one or the other! If i decide on the maverick i'll be buying the X rs dps model.
