    So for those of you who own one. The question is which one?
    Is it the standard 2 seat Teryx?
    Or the 4 seat Teryx 4?
    Me personally...I have my sites on the Teryx 4. Best of all worlds. As nimble. And ample passenger capability for friends and family.

    I like the LE colors but the the additional features don't justify extra cost.

    I've been leaning towards the white T4. I guess I have a soft spot for white vehicles.

    Yeah if I was going for a T4 I would choose the white LE myself.

    I'd have to go with blue t2. Blue just one my favorite colors, but I think I own the poison to your teryx ;)

    No more blue T2 for 2015. The black is it for the base at $12,900 then you have the camo at $14,300. The LE editions are green and white at $14,900

    You know when you really look at it, the Yamaha Wolverine EPS at $13,200 isn't really a bad price.

    Butch in all honesty if I were buying today I think I'd buy a Wolverine, the only thing that might sway me toward the Teryx is the 3 year warranty and the great local Kawi dealer I have. The T2 has been awesome so far but I think the smoother ride the Wolverine will have will be hard not to like.

    No more blue, what the heck... I honestly like the wolverine. I don't know if it swayed me to stay yamaha, but I would gave it a chance. It had a twin like the teryx I'd like it even more.

    How is the Wolverine going to be a smoother ride over the Teryx? Suspension?

    For me, the T4 is the only way to go. It's all about my kids right now, but I've actually hauled 3 other adults on several occasions. 4 seats have proved beneficial, but I can certainly appreciate the two seater features. The large dump bed and enormous storage bins are really nice.

    I would guess the one thing that might make the wolverine smoother ride is cause all the adjustments you can do to the stock shocks compared to the stock teryx shocks.

    Yeah...I had forgotten about the better shocks on the Wolverine. I'm not sure giving up the Vtwin torque would be worth the compromise.

    I haven't looked at the adjustments on the wolernine, but it has more travel than the Teryx; I think that more than anything will improve the ride. A mid travel kit would be the ticket for these Teryxs.

    I have a 2014 T2 LE The New Wolverine has a bit more travel. 10 vs 8.5 but that is not huge. I think the Fox Shocks are better than the KYB Piggyback shocks.. Not sure how adjustable they are.. I adjusted the Fox Pod shocks and increased my ride hight about 2 inches, but makes it more forgiving.. Not much bucking bronco action now.. I love the T2 for it's storage space. Being behind the seats set down in front of the bed is perfect.. While everyone else is scraping mud or snow off their storage boxes and getting the inside all dirty, my stuff stays clean and dry! The only think I HATE about the T2 or the T4 for that matter is the speed limiter. The engine can do so much more.. To top it off at 50 really sucks. I did not think it would be an issue, but when riding with Mavericks and RZR's I can't keep up in some spots. Plus its sad when a 350cc ATV at 3x less the price can pass you! The Wolverine is barely a 700 at 708.. At 1300+ pounds that is a lot of weight to push. The Teryx is 1500 but also almost a 900 at 876cc.

    Kyb might not be the big brand name racing shock like fox, but they are great shock. With how much they adjust they should be better than a stock fox on the teryx. Kyb is one the biggest companies making shocks. There more known for car shocks. I had yfz 450 with stock Kyb shocks and didn't feel the need to change them out for trail riding that I did with it.

    True, Older Can-am's had them until they switched to Fox Podium.
