I just got off the phone with my yamaha dealer and they told me yamaha is announcing there new products on Thursday. And are expecting a new sxs, they don't know if it is going to be another utility maybe a 4 or 5 seater, or a sport sxs to compete with the rzr and wildcat. Just keep your eyes open on Yamaha's website. I'm sure there will be a lot of chatter on thursday.

Wouldn't it be a bit surprising to have Yamaha release another SxS utility vehicle since the Viking is still so new? My guess is that its a sport SxS. That would be a nice compliment to the Viking.

I'm just excited to see what comes next, I wont be in a position to go buy the first one either. Yamaha is supposed to have a new sxs every year for 5 years starting with the viking. I remember when the Viking was announced and I said to myself I gotta have one

Here's my thinking:

#1 Crew Model

#2 Sport model with new vtwin motor, then next year they'll put that motor in the Viking....

Although I know the segment is too new for Yamaha to of made any significant action, I'd love to see them do a single seater to go up against Polaris' new sportsman ACE...

But if I had to wager on it I'd say the machine is going to be a pure recreational machine. I have my doubts about an RZR type machine just because sales of those make up something like less than 30% of the market...

The local dealer here is hearing the same rumors. They are expecting something similar...but something that would not compete against the 2014 Viking. His exact comment was... "either real fast or real big, like a 6 passenger."

You watch...it will be a snow machine :eek:

I'm hoping it's something real fast, because I might be willing to sacrifice the street bike for something I can race every weekend
