Checked out a Teryx yesterday

Took lots of pictures and got to drive it a bit.

Looks A LOT like a Rhino from a distance. Did not feel any bigger than a Rhino.

Curb weight is 614 kg which is 1350 lbs. Holy crap! Can that really be true?! The frame does look more stout that a Rhino or RZR.

It did not feel that fast. About like a 700 Rhino by my seat of the pants dyno on ashphalt/dirt.

Exhaust is very quiet. The outlet looks very small, so I am thinking that power will greatly benefit from aftermarket pipe. The header from the front cylinder is much longer than the other.

Intake is right by your elbow and opens at the bed. Looks pretty restricted, but nice and high for wet conditions.

Had a hard time starting it after a stall. Had to use choke and pump the gas pedal a bit. They should have waited for EFI.

No tilt bed. No digital dash (speedo, odo, etc). Those are on the LE that will be out in a few weeks.

Surprised they don't have doors after all the crap Yamaha is dealing with.

More pictures and analysis

It might be a tad bit faster than the Rhino cause the Kawi dealer down the street called the other day and wanted us to drive a Rhino down for a quick race. We told them we would gladly bring a Rzr.

The RZR is definitely faster than the Teryx - stock vs. stock.

I heard the new 700 rhino is faster than the teryx and the RZR beats both.

Should be noted that once the 700 RHino hits 41 mph, the Teryx will walk away.

the teryx beats the rhino and the rzr beats both stock. as far as building one up, the teryx by far is more capable then both at handling more power for faster speeds. on the exhaust if you take out the tiny end cap we dynoed a gain of 6 hp.
