We took the Maverick's out for a spin this weekend and had a blast in the mud & rain. Very nice machine. I did notice that there were still the outer mounting tabs for the rear trailing arm on the frame, so it is a Commander frame that has been modified at least on the demo units. Power is definately better than my commander, seemed a little more responsive as well. Suspension worked better the faster you went. Exhaust sounded good, like it had a quiet version Muzzy's on it. The clunk isn't as severe, but did notice it when I first took off, but that was the only time. Didn't hear any whine noise but we had helmets on and didn't reach speeds over 45mph with the course we were on. Cockpit is the same as the Commander. The XRS that my wife was driving had a roof and it didn't have a drip rail so all the rain & mud water on the roof kept dripping in her face - that was about the only complaint. Definately a big improvement.
