Dirt Wheels new article...

I bought the mag and I didn't really like what I was reading. They made it sound like the XX couldn't really compete with the outlaw or raptor so they put it against a automatic, straight axle turd. They mentioned a few things about why the outlaw was better or the raptor was better. It seemed for every good thing they said about the XX they had to cut it down too. I know some people say that yamaha is in their back pocket. I saw they had a 4x4 shootout, I checked to see who won the shoot out and it was yamaha, haha. Maybe I'm just being too sensitive, I dont know...Thoughts?

I guess the New Yamaha MX 450 winning last months shoot out of MX ready 450's is just another coincidence.

I think Yamaha makes a great machine, but now that you mention it the only time DW rates a machine well is when there is no direct Yamaha competiton.

yamaha is in thier pocket it makes me sick!!!! they ALWAYS compare it to something thats not even in the same class. the XX works best in rocky, rutted, or the crappiest terrain u can find! i had a 06 craptor it had good power it handled well, but it wasn't the best for the types of ridin we have in Tennessee, but thats my opinion. my nephew has a outlaw its a good set up but not even close to bein good as my TRX 700XX

Really they should praise Honda for mating the power/torque of a raptor to the IRS of the Outlaw. I believe all are GREAT machines but when people cut down an awesome machine like the XX its purely because they are hating on it. I've ridden the Raptor 660, 700r, outlaw 525 and the XX is really an amazing machine.

I'll tell you what, after the initial reviews came out on the XX, I almost changed my mind and bought an Outlaw. But I decided to stick with it and just go with my gut feeling. I am SOOOO glad I didn't put my trust into the mag reviews. It is amazing how much they dogged the XX initially.

Yeah check the outlaw forums about recalls, and stuff falling off of or just flat-out breaking on their quads.

They can keep that POS.
