The Viking and new Ranger 900 both have the motor behind the cab under the bed. Huge PLUS!!! much quieter and if you ride were it get's hot. The bigger displacement machines will roast you out of the cab if you add a windshield and rear window. One of many reasons I will own a Viking in the future.
Nothing, Ive got a CanAm atv that i love, but far as side x sides go, Nothing but Yamaha from now on for me. I had Yamaha atv's for years uptill i sold the 2002 big bear 400 and got a my first and LAST Polaris, cause the Rhino was to small. Got a new 210 Rang that gave me the same issue from day 1 off the showroom floor on the test drive, close to 10 trips back to dealer, never fixed. When i heard about the Viking, i couldnt sell my Polaris fast enough.
