Inline 3 cyl that sounds just like a popo.  about 45mph and I can outrun him on a stock 650 prowler

The new RSX 850i is NOT an inline 3 cylinder it is a v-twin motorcycle engine.  We will have our first one at the dealership Aug. 15th.  Supposed to be a quick machine but could use a little more top end.

Now if only john deere would step up on their atv's

I think this is the one with the goofy rear diff.  Like it is offset to one side and the axles are dramatically different in lengths.  Along with the A-Arms are different from the Right and Left side on the rear. 
 
Just does not seem like it would be any good to lift it.  Like a Bracket lift wont cut it on this machine.

It has potential. Anything with the Rhino's platform length and width wise with some power under the hood will do well.

Funny seeing a John Deere all pimped out like that.  I wonder how many Rice Farmers are going to pimp out their gator?

I like em. I know jd tractors do work. If they build the gators like they do tractors it should be a good machine.

To me it looks like a Teryx and a Commander went behind a barn and nine months later this thing came out.

I seen this on tv the other day, I agree. It looks like the commander. I wouldn't mind owning one...it would be something new to lots of people. Hopefully someone buys one and posts a few pics on here

I'm kinda hoping to see a John Deere section in the OEM discussion sometime in the near future, and if john Deere makes a ATV I think it would look somewhat like the new Kymcos

"an 839 cc, V-twin, liquid cooled, four-cycle"
 
"Twin" is a 2 cylinder
"Four-Cycle" is a 4-stroke

The rear suspension looks similar to the RZR-XP or WildCat with the multi-link. I said it looks like a Commander and someone else here stated Kawasaki. so the Theory of "behind the barn" might have some credit to it.

That LT one looks pretty sweet but I personally just don't see much coming into the full aftermarket world.  Whether that's west coast, south, or up north style.  I'm sure they will sell like hot cakes for the farmer looking for something sporty around the ranch, but unless the demand HIGHLY increases for aftermarket stuff, we just wont see it.  Something like the pic above is more or less one off and cost a lot of money!

Supposedly there is already a 1000cc big bore available for the v-twin they are using in this machine. At least that is what i read on pirate....

I know some of the John Deere riding mowers my buddy had used Kawasaki engines.  Also, they're "Trail Buck" atv line uses Rotax engines and Bombardier (Can-Am) engineered frame/chassis.  So, how reliable a "John Deere" is depends on what's up under the yellow and green.

I read up on em just a little when I first saw them out.  I thought I remembered reading that they were actually John Deere engines in them now.  (Which I'm sure is just a rebadged engine but still)

it's engine is from a aprilia srv 850,they're a italian sportbike maker.the rest of is made in wisconsin i believe
 
it's from their "scooter"

 
the scooter is rated at 76hp but the JD is rated for 62,probably tuned more more torque but lets you know it's room to easily grow for more hp.it looks something between a rzr and a commander.hopefully JD can keep their prices under control.

Can't vouch for that particular machine but we have one of the new gator 550 4 seaters on the farm and we've put over 500 miles on it this year with no issues at all. All it see's is rough dirt roads and none of us take it easy on it. It's also very comfortable and smooth riding even at full throttle.

They are really pushing the ads for this bike.  I see them all over the place on channels you just don't see ATV or SxS ads... History channel, Discovery and places like that!

My dad's neighbor took one home to test drive.  Dad has a commander 1000 and he said the deere has great low end, and the exhaust note is the best stock one that he has heard.
 
Nice to see something different out there!

Saw Clint Boyer doggin on one on a nascar behind the scenes kind of show... obviously the show was sponsored by JD.  It looked pretty ballsy... seemed to break out sideways pretty easy... he took a pretty decent jump with it... from that vid I was suprised the top end was only 53... wonder if there's an easy way to raise that through a rev limiter reprogram or something
