Never ask a American man this question.
You will never get a honest answer back.
Here's an honest answer from an American man. I own a 2016 Honda Rancher 420 4x4 DCT EPS. I LOVE it. I ride it almost every day, and I've got 2067 miles on it as of 10 minutes ago when I arrived back at work. It has plenty of power for the trails I ride, and hills I climb, up here in the high desert of Northeastern Arizona. Seriously, I'm pushing safety limits when I'm ripping 40-45mph down a forest road.

But I've ridden places where it is impossible to have too much power...or at least it has never happened. Example #1: the Cinder hills at Flagstaff, AZ. Example #2: the sand dunes.

Horsepower is key when you're climbing mountains of sand or cinders. If I had a Sportsman 1000, I would run it up the biggest hills and dunes and be glad for every hp. So it really depends on the type of riding that you are doing, and how much power you LIKE to have. See below:

Im with you, when i went from my kingquad to an outlander 1000 I was in heaven lol! Now i have a HL 1000. Haters always say, that bikes too heavy, it sinks..... haha then i rip thru that motherfucker with a smile! 1000 cc are great, but I can always use more. Especially when I am extremely stuck, and I am sittin there thinking, man, if I had more power I could just blast through here.... My wifes 450 is great, but we know its limits, there are holes that sucker is just not going to make it through.

With no warranty I assume? Wondering if the Cecco Frame Bracers and Pinion Cover void warranty. I bet Polaris would say they do.
I plan to put mine on but might as well wait until the first diff oil change for the Pinion Cover.

Curious what Polaris official stance is on this? I have the Polaris extended warranty and wonder......
