Honda claims the quad’s new SOHC liquid-cooled fuel-injected, four-… engine generates the peak output in its class. only a single cylinder it is never going to be a power for the large capacity multis Can-Am and Kawasaki, so we can only that they are claiming power than Yamaha’s single lung machine, the successful 700 Raptor. Currently, own the Australian sports ATV market.

Yamaha’s YFM700R, YFZ450 and 350 Banshee trifecta guarantee the biggest slice of the sales Honda is aiming to cut a bigger of that pie with the arrival of the

The similarities between Honda’s and the 700 Raptor are uncanny. Both a single cylinder displacing from a 102mm and 84mm Both are fuel injected the Honda boasting a 13 litre cell to the Raptor’s 11 litre Both offer easily foam air filters, a five gearbox with reverse, front disc brakes, styling and are guaranteed to thrill.

Length, width and height are all fairly much lineball but around to the rear of the Honda and the between the TRX700XX and the Raptor apparent.

While the Raptor the de-rigueur swingarm and single rear end, Honda has for extremely beefy looking rear suspenders. The lightweight race category is still by swingarm suspended machines, buyers of 700cc machinery are less likely to see the heat of pro competition and it is away from the that the benefits of IRS are more Racetracks are generally graded and with no large obstacles, or washouts.

The Australian bush all of those and more and it is here machines such as the 700 Raptor are used. With IRS offering stability and much improved on uneven ground, Honda finally have a machine will go head to head the 700 Raptor in the marketplace.

IRS is not new to the sports ATV market. Polaris been using an IRS system on Outlaw range for some Honda has also followed lead by equipping the TRX700XX a sway bar to help keep the end tied down. There the end.

Honda have high-spec piggyback shock with their top mounts closer to the centreline of the machine, the bottom pick up points to be splayed wider. The Honda more suspension travel with a wider footprint having a shorter wheelbase both the Polaris and the conventional end 700 Raptor. Honda has obviously some careful attention to the of their new beast.

One side effect of IRS that have not been able to however is the weight that all extra components that up the IRS system bring along for the Yamaha claim a dry weight of for the 700 Raptor while Honda a wet weight figure complete all oils and a full tank of of 230kg for the TRX700XX. In reality, the between the two when both of fluids is likely to be around that 50kg difference on and with neither machine to see any racetrack duty that somewhat of a moot point.

While IRS has its advantages, at the end of the day most in the market for a large capacity quad like pulling And there is no doubt that and slides are more easily on swingarm machines. To my mind, means that the Yamaha continue to have the most for the skid merchants while the will prove more in an adventure role thanks to its fuel range and more ride over obstacles.

Either way, more in the marketplace can only be a good for buyers.
