Ok so here the Story .. I was Very Lucky to get to try out a new machine this last week .. I’m not supposed to say what kind of machine it is but in the last week I’ve driven it just shy of 300 miles ... 175 Miles of the was in the sand at Glamis .. Going into it I was thinking it’s just a hopped up Commander, Wrong Wrong Wrong .. I really was not impressed with my Commander and only bothered taking it to Glamis a Couple Of Times in the 2 Years I owned it, to me it was far from a dunning machine and I like the Commander so Much I only Put around 200 Miles on it in the two years I owned it.

I have also read some online and Magazine reports on this new machine and was not impressed with what I was hearing ... But I’ll tell you Today I feel they are wrong ... way wrong
Now this new machine is nothing short of Bad Ass and Awesome all in one neat little package ... the machine I was driving has the upgraded shocks and let me tell you It would fly past a Turbo RZR XP in the woops going up Comp Hill in Glamis ..we lined up on the berm and he expected me to have to pussy foot the machine thru the woops and I put the hammer down and flew through the woops like a bat out of hell and was the first to the top of the hill .. Don’t get me wrong the Turbo XP was faster on smooth ground but not in the woops .... I also will say I let a Girl Drive the new machine and race her Husband up the Hill at Glamis a couple of times the first time they rolled thru the woops going about 10 mph to the smooth section of hill and she looked like a Maverick Pulling away from her old man a stock motor RZR XP .. I also know her husbands xp well and knew it would run thru the woops up the hill as I sold him his UTVinc King Springs so I called her over as she was lining up to race him a second time and told her none of that pussy footing this time thru the woops .. I told her the machine will handle it Just Mash the peddle to the floor thru the woops ... she was about three cars ahead at the top of the hill ...


I duned with the turbo rzr all weekend and yes it would out pull me on the flats and on the hill but he could never shake me, the suspension is nothing short of amazing and only bottomed a couple of times the whole weekend ..I am not saying this machine will make you Ricky Bobby if you can’t drive and have no sense .. Well you can’t drive and have no sense .... Oh I also might tell you guys if you hit the right roller you can mash the gas and lift the front end ..It’s pretty awesome feeling the front end get light or come off the ground...

I also saw 75MPH IN the sand on flat ground with Paddle Tires

It needs Power Steering I Miss not having it

All in all it’s a awesome and I will be adding one to my collection and I’d say it’s KING OF THE HILL Right Now

Oh ya and its goes a hellofa long way on a tank of gas when the turbo rzr was empty I was just under half a tank

The Machine I was Driving was out fitted with UTVinc Harness Bar and Harnesses and UTVinc Roof and Rear View Mirror For Saftey

Thanks Johnny, A truely unbiased review, just what we were hoping for. I can't say it is making the wait until Feb/March an easier!!!

More power than the XP and better suspension what else is there???

We already know the Rotax engine is going to be rock solid.

Hopfully the new belt and improvements to the clutch / clutch cooling mean the Maverick will have way longer belt life than the commander!!

Power steering not a big deal, it can always be added later....

Johnny, you also mention in your write up how well the machine handles the whoops. So can we all assume that means the shaft saver does NOT come on while ripping thru the whoops? How about when crossing a steep transition where the wheels may come off the ground? Last question, how noticeable was the throttle delay? and will a black box be needed?

Does your dealer think they will come in before Xmas?

I'm definitely going to get the black box for mine. We need to find out if the current one works with this closed loop efi.
