No one can do a ride comparison but yourself!!! Its simple buy what you like, Im a long time polaris fan simply because its never let me down & I love the ride. I could give a rats azz about what some other guy said about either quad. Im so sick of people saying that the can am can go farther in the mud faster on the grid etc etc etc!!!! TRUTH BE TOLD, they are 2 different company's with 2 different ideas(not including the others). Put the same tires on a outy & a xp with same driver & then maybe we can get a close comparison but even then its only close.
We all have different tastes & thats what drives the company's to stay competitive & if all company's were the same then we wouldn't have advancements in technology & the atv life would be boring!!!!!!! Among other things.
