Cruising around YouTube I came across this little video maxing out the Viking. The guy who shot the vid says his Viking topped out at 51 mph and it pulled all the way to 51. Can the Viking be ungoverned? Wonder how long before we see some you hooligans topping 70 miles per :D


Starts a little slow, fella is obviously out for a cruise with his family and their fleet of ATVs, Click through to 2:25 to skip the slow bits

The Viking though underpowered compared to the competition has a weight advantage. It's actually quicker if not just as quick as most of the competition for acceleration.

Viking: 1342 lb 686cc
Pioneer: 1261 lb 675cc
Ranger: 1085 lb 760cc
Commander: 1,287 lb 800cc

Commander and Ranger duke it out for power to weight champion, but have heard Commanders are noisy and HOT.

The Ranger is only a 2 seater but can tow more than some small SUVs.

The Viking is a little underpowered for its weight but I see that as the Viking having a beefed up frame to make it tougher for Utility work..

I feel like 51 mph is pretty fast. I don't think I would want to go any faster than that. It is more about how the engine translates to towing capacity, not really how it translates to speed.
