You have not seen Maverick fast yet! Following my 686 Rhino through the dunes is a good pace, but when I get a SXS that can actually get out of it's own way - game on!!!!Your absolutely right.. I ride it hard and fast in the dunes and the sand sucks power and fuel economy. I have not even taken it to the dirt yet.
We rode 102 miles this weekend. Trash clean up at slow speed, lots of stops and starts, then two bigger hard dune rides and used exactly 11 gallons. 102 / 11 = 9.27.I only have 2 runs on mine about 170 miles. High speed mountain riding and hill climbing I'm getting 15 on the dot! My commander averages 17.
