Let's stick to the topic here.
My 2nd response was to the photo Fenrisulvin posted. SEE POST #9
Originally "He" said he was offered a Predator 450 RFS engine and I ORIGINALLY told him they did not come with the RFS, BUT someone may have put one in it. SEE POST #2
Then, after he CLARIFIED and posted the MAGIC photo I commented SEE POST #9
No fuss, he's gotten the info he needs.
I didn't say BRAND. I said PREDATOR.
Fine, you say what you want about a bike and I'll say what I want about one. The second a Predator kicks your ass on a KTM is the second I'll say it should have. It's your fault not the bikes.
I like sharks but I wouldn't swim with them.
In 2006 Polaris made an Outlaw 500 and Predator 500; neither had a KTM engine.
In 2007 Polaris made a Predator 500, an Outlaw 500 neither with a KTM engine again, and an Outlaw 525 IRS with the RFS engine.
In 2008 Polaris made an Outlaw 525 S, 450 MXR, and an Outlaw 525 IRS ALL with the RFS.
2009 SAME Roster with upgrades.
2011 525 IRS ONLY
2012 NO MORE
So what was dropped and when? I thought.
To resale, all the above Polaris can be purchased CHEAP.
And yes, they are fun. Some models more than others. And I'm talking about ALL 4 wheelers.
To end, I think the Polaris 525 S, 450 MXR, and 525 IRS ARE BETTER THAN ANY PREDATOR and I say this ONLY because of the "powerplant" but I'm happy for anyone that has one. I LOVE KTM.
