Does seem like a pretty crappy write up. According to them, basically the quad is OK with some problems, but majically everything they pick to put on it works perfectly and solves all the problems. (Damn they're good) Little detail on fit issues, or performance of the $50,000,000 worth of upgrades they did. Very superficial. Makes me think that machine is sitting in the writers garage now...fringe benefit...It's like my BMW R1200GS. It isn't great at anything, but does everything well. Typical advertising funded magazine drivel. They don't want to slam it and don't want to rate it better than anything else...trying to placate everyone.
Read a magazine like UK BIKE mag. They tell it like it is...they're so big they don't care who they piss off. They still get the job done with journalistic integrity.
