The Yami is the best big bore single out there in my experience. As for work power is important but I'm sure in low the Yami would do just fine. I was actually out with a group for a New Year's ride and it was a Yami group. They are very nimble machines and a lot lighter then the Polaris. The best way I can describe the two machines is the Yami is like a 280Z and the Polaris is like a big block Camaro. You can dictate your body movment on the Yami (body English) the Polaris not so much (your thumb is it). Twins, Power, and 'Merica are on the top of my list so Polaris it is. But if those weren't Yami would be. I will say aside from Polaris Yamaha is a very comfortable wheeler to ride.

I've seen so many videos of yamis and Honda's ect..with big tires in the mud they are SOOOO underpowered... The 850/1000 Polaris .. and bassicly anything "canned ham" just tears it up .. obvious power advantage

Sorry, I'm going to have to disagree here. Having owned Kawasaki, Honda and now Polaris, this PO1000 is easily the most powerful and agile machine I've ever owned, to include the new Kawi BF 750i I bought late last year. I can literally drift this XP1000 around some of the gnarliest obstacles whereas my prior machines would require a 3 point maneuver!

All I can say is you have to drive on and experience the power and handling, I’m not a racer and I didn’t buy my copper head to jack up and make it a big toy .i work in the woods and like my backroad less travelled country and after a long day I feel great instead of beat up . Polaris forever!

I’d have to agree here.
I’ve seen riders capable of keeping up, but their bikes limit them.
There are bikes out there that suit riders needs, but when it comes to setting record times, Polaris and Can Am are leeps and bounds above the rest.
Power, nimble-ness and rideability are just superior, as far as sport utilities that is.

Anyone got ant gripes about a can am outlander ? As to a sportsman ? I'm honestly looking at both and they are similar ... But I'll have to give the nod to Polaris for power, styling and erginomics but I think can am has taken the win in build quality

The Can Ham 1000's have a issue with blown rear diffs.
I see it often on Youtube atv channels.

Both great machine, you should test drive them before taking a decision... and well here its a polaris forum so people will bash can am all the time yet they both have strength and weaknesses.

I did that before buying my 570 and 1000 and both time the polaris was on top in my book

I’ve got a xp 1000 I’ll sell you once it gets out of the shop with a rebuilt transmission. Lighting upgrades, added Bluetooth stereo and extended warranty. Think I’ll go with a bicycle. More reliable. $10k and you can take it to the house.
