The Outlaw out performed all other sport quads. Period.
I rode my Outlaw 525 IRS today in California---I dusted off plenty of Raptors and 450X's in the process. Sorry speedfreak, but you're wrong about the Outlaw. The KTM Motor is GREAT. I love the power and the reliability. But the Outlaw 525 IRS is a Beast b/c it handles gnarly trails--better than anything else on the market by far. The IRS, steering, low weight and balance simply can't be found in any other quad. Honda's 700xx isn't even close---for $2,000 more if you can find one.
Outlaw outsold KTM quads by a bunch. And it is no wonder. Unless you are racing for Roger De coster, they cost too much. And the Outlaw has the same motor for THOUSANDS less. Put a motor with 90% of the power into that chassis and you still have a winner. Again, for thousands less. THEN you can put Ohlins shocks, wide a-arms and all that jazz on it to customize it exactly as you want it and STILL save money.
In case you haven't looked, Suzuki isnt selling their quadsport for 2012, and KTM left the market. Honda didnt make any x's in 2011 and Yamaha doesn't have a yfz450x for 2012.
The sport market is dead for now. When the economy picks back up, the sport market will too.
Ad i'll look to buy my good ole American sport quad from Polaris, b/c they did me right with my Outlaw 525 IRS!
