Giving you a little background. I am a yamaha fan. Owned several. Was on my way to pick up a 2011 raptor 700. Decided to check out all makes before I signed. I did check swingarm clearance when looking at the raptor. My stelel-toed boots barely fit under swingarm. I knew I do like trails better and watned clearance. Went to the honda dealer and the salesman showed me the XX. Looked at it for a while, 10+ inches of ground clearance, protected chain and brake(easy adjustment and need adjusting less often), liquid cooled/reverse/fuel injected, all I wanted in a trail bike. Told salesman we were going to eat lunch, he told me I would be back and would take it home. I told him I wasn't buying one today. It was being washed and detailed when I came back to get it, les than an hr later. Only thing I regret is looking at others, I could of been riding weeks earlier. Side note, never seen the polaris model in person anywhere. But this is also the first XX I seen to. I looked at suz 400, kfx 400, raptors, some 4X4's, even kfx 700(hate autos though). Would def buy my XX again. Only negative I have is wheel/tire options.
