Question 570 Vs 800 sideXside

Hi All.
New to the sight alot of good reads, also new to atv'ing, was wondering if anyone has riden the new 570? Would it be fair to call this an entry model version of the 800, except the motor most the specs look identical with a few differences here and there, also if you have 2 adults and some gear is a 2 cyl gonna make a BIG difference over a 1 cyl in power acceleration etc? And lastly speaking of trails in N. Calif and the sierra's, are thier many trails with the 50" width limitations?
Thx Duke

BIG difference between the twin and the single. You really need to go and test drive both to understand. Don't just take someone's word for it.

Have you ever read the phrase, "It looked good on paper?" What about "There is no replacement for displacement." IMHO, that's the case here.

Don't get me wrong, I am sure the 570 will hold its own. I am sure its a fine machine in its own right. I am certain many untold thousands will be 100% satisfied with it.

But its a less powerful model of the rzr 800 not its replacement..

For years I was happy with my single jug ATV's and I still have one that I use for guests & plowing snow. I splurged and got an 850 Touring in January and I'm still amazed by the power and smoothness every time I get on it. I've never been in an RZR, but isn't the engine right behind the seats? If so, I would imagine a twin would seem VERY much smoother. You got good advice above. Try to drive them both before buying. Incidentally, there is a forum dedicated exclusively to RZR's that probably can give you first-hand information about these specific machines. Enjoy the sport.
