Yea, I can't tell why you would want the Rhino over the Viking if it doesn't win over the Viking in any category and costs more. There must be some type of justification.ENGINE
Interesting how Yamaha will be offering both Rhino and Viking this year at the same entry price considering Viking out tows, out payloads and seats one extra than the Rhino.
I owned a "09" 700FI Rhino for a few years, and now I own a "14" 700FI Viking, and I prefer the Viking, one extra seat, more payload, more towing capacity, a little larger piston for more power and torque, a bigger fuel tank, (9.7 gal), and from personal experience, somewhere around 30% better fuel mileage, top speed on Rhino was around 41 mph, my Viking stock will bounce between 50 and 51 mph topped out.Why choose on over the other? Anyone wanna throw up some statistics at specifications?
If they hate the Viking, its because they never drove one. I owned both 2013 Rhino and now a 2014 SE Viking and the Viking is way better. It has way more power as well. The ride is alot better. I mean if anyone thinks the Viking cant go where a Rhino can is saddly mistaken. I mean its only 5" wider and its a little longer which would not inhibit its inability for off roading in the bush. They just keep trying to tell themselves that, so they won't like it.Yea, I can't tell why you would want the Rhino over the Viking if it doesn't win over the Viking in any category and costs more.

A lot of people like the Rhino and are hating on the Viking. They must have some reason behind this.
I owned a rhino and now a viking never had that problem with the rhino, and still don't with the viking so you shouldn't have a problem, I'm 6'3", I doubt the 1 inch will make a difference, I'm thinking if you do have a problem in the viking maybe the problem is in your ankle???Is the Viking more comfortable to drive? I'm talking about the foot angle to the gas pedal. I drove kawi mule and man did my ankle hurt from the sharp angle to the pedal. I was told that the Rhino was a lot like that. I'm 6'4" so maybe that won't matter for any utv.
