What's The Best 2- UP Atv out there ??

Trying to decide on a 2 up ATV. I don't need a 1000cc bike for just trail riding. 
I Enjoy trail riding without breaking down ! A ATV thats going to get me there, And back in one piece. Something That looks good, Sounds good. Comfy for the passenger. What's your pick ?

    There are some steep hills here that will need some power getting up. especially with a passenger and a radio etc.. on the four wheeler. How much power difference is there from a 500 to a 800 can am ?

    I have a 400 outty max and a 650 outty max,the 650 will do anything you need and then some,will turn 30's if need be but will be a reliable workhorse on stock tires also,very versatile and never will run out of power like the smaller 400 or 500.

    Yeah my Buddy has the 650 max and it has tons of power. It's not 2 seater tho, i mean weve fit 4 people on it at once, but i want a ATV designed for 2 people.

    the 2 up is nice. and any scooter today will treat you good if maintained, just get what you like. the cat's have great belt design, and good low end torque. the can am may out run it, but the cat seems to not bog as much when under a load like climbing a hill. polaris i think makes one also, but i dont know much about them.

    I have a Polaris Sportsman 800 Touring. Wonderful bike.  Picked it up brand new fora lot less than an 850 Touring. Has all the power you will need and is the most comfortble 4-wheeler I have ever riden. Can't go wrong.

    I would go with a 2up 650 Can am.. Plenty of power, and very comfy.. Ive had an 06 Max 800 for 2-3 years trouble free.. and been around alot of 650 maxes ,Mainly raced, and trail rode with a passenger..

    I owned a 650 H1 also (single seater) nice bike.. Raced and cruised trails.. Kindi more of a low geared type feeling..

    If I had to do it again I would go 4 the can am.. hands down for all around.. especially carring extra person..

    I have no imput on polaris (never owned a 4wheeler) just a rzr s (sold it a month after owning)

    Oh, Its a 650 but with the extra package with bumpers and good stuff. So i guess XT ? I love the power that it has, But it never gets used to its max, For the trails we do a 250cc atv is perfect, no more no less. When you get with a Vtwin, your just waisting money and gas. He never even takes it mudding at all. its as clean as it was off the show room floor.

    Definitely Outlander Max. The 400 or 500 will take you anywhere the 650 or 800 will so it doesn't really matter.

    id say go on and get a 800 you might not need it, but youll want it lol. after you spend the money on a 400, 500, or 650 youll say it atleast once before its all said and done, "man, i wish i went ahead and got the 800"

    With the normal can am 800r Outlander, Can't you ride 2 people with the standard seat it comes with just fine ? its like 1 more grand just for a extra seat and like 8 inches longer frame.

    You can ride any bike with 2 people but you will be surprised at how much more room there is with the max. Any canam max gets my vote.

    From the 400MAX XT Can-am to the MAX 800R Outlander its only a 1600 dollar difference. I Think its well worth the extra 2 grand spent. But if i wanna get the 800r XT its a 3 grand difference for bumpers aluminum wheels etc.. Are bumpers worth it if i just trail ride ?

    you can ride just fine on most but it is more comfortable on a 2up. Also it is illegal in some states to ride 2 up on a bike that is not designed for it.

    please allow me to "splain" something here.  when you ride 2-up on a 1-up quad usually the passenger is behind the year axle which can completely change how the bike handles and climbs sometimes making it unsafe.   on a max the passenger is inside the axles that makes it much safer and pleasant to ride.
