Polaris introduced the Ranger XP Kinetic this year which is Polaris' first real forray into the modern electric UTV. The Ranger XP Kinetic is engineered to do everything any other fullsize Ranger can do with the same level of durability. To show off the Ranger XP Kinetic, Polaris has created a web series called To The Test where well-known people put the Ranger XP Kinetic to the test in their field of work. Episode 2 of To The Test just dropped featuring the
Here we are at new model time with the 2023 Polaris General family being no exception. In fact, there have been some changes to the 2023 Polaris General family that seem fairly significant upon further examination. It appears that Polaris is on a march to retire the majority of the 60-inch General 1000 models in favor of having the General lineup primarily be made up of the XP 1000 64-inch models. For 2023 there is only one 60-inch General model with the General 1000 Sport model which is billed as
It is that time of the year when next year’s models abound with Polaris being no exception. Polaris recently announced the introduction of the initial batch of 2023 Polaris RZR models. What has changed for 2023 in the Polaris RZR lineup you might ask. In a single word: Colors. Yep, that is it. There are no updates, new models, or new features. This is not a big surprise considering Polaris blew out the industry with the release of both the Polaris RZR Pro R and RZR Turbo R families earlier this y

Honda made a bit of a surprise announcement with the introduction of a brand new model with the Pioneer 1000-6 Deluxe Crew. At first glance it is everything one would expect it to be including all the capabilities of the Pioneer 1000 with room for 6. That is a solid assumption which turns out to be pretty darn accurate. Unlike the Pioneer 1000-5, the Pioneer 1000-6 Deluxe Crew has a full size second row of seats in addition to the rear cargo bed. There are a handful of additional features not seen
This year has proven to be a big year for both Polaris and the pure sport-wide open side-by-side crowd with the release of the RZR Turbo R and RZR Pro R side-by-sides. We saw all the specs and sat on the call when Polaris walked through all the details of these vehicles, and they are on paper truly amazing. The question that remains is if these new side-by-sides can live up to the expectations. AJ with Dirt Trax TV answers that question in this performance review video.
Honda finally released its 2022 lineup of Talon sport side-by-sides (it’s about time). There are no “new” models for this year but there have been some updates worth noting that improves upon the overall Honda Talon sport side-by-side.
Changes from model year 2021
Since the introduction of both the RZR Pro R and Turbo R back in January, these two vehicles have been the talk of the industry. The reason for this is pretty obvious. These are the widest most advanced and pricey production side-by-sides ever. The Turbo R comes to the table with the same 181 turbo engine that is found in the Pro XP but with a completely new suspension with travel numbers that are mind blowing. Dirt Trax has now had a RZR Turbo R 4 dropped off for the testing and Luke
It has been a long time coming since the release of the KRX 1000, but today we welcome the new 4-seat KRX4 1000. As you can see from the photos that the KRX4 1000 is capable of taking 4 people along on an off-road adventure in comfort with high-back seats, half-doors, plenty of legroom, and the off-road chops to pretty much go anywhere. Looking at the specs, if a KRX 1000 can go there then the KRX4 1000 can go there also. Same 999cc engine, transmission, and drivetrain goodies adorn the KRX4 1000
We love new things here at ATV ESCAPE, especially new side-by-sides. Clearly based upon the picture there is a brand spanking new Kawasaki side-by-side coming June 6th, and it looks like, based upon the dimsensions and body style that it is a four-seat Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000. Might it be named a Kawasaki Teryx4 KRX 1000 or maybe Kawasaki Teryx KRX4 1000? We don't know yet, but we will soon. Be sure to check in with us on June 6th to see what this new Kawasaki might be. The video teaser below is
