This Rhino of Yamaha's has really caught my interest,it looks to me like a real winner in the big quad market.I have been looking for a dealer where I can demo one.I know what I like about my Grizzly is the raw power and handling,and looks,so I kind of expect the same of this vehicle.I have been reading as much about it as I can find,and I haven't found anything bad .With the exception of my brother that said it looks like an over grow golf cart,but then again I would not ride what he does, a ***** .Not a brand basher. So what do you think?

ATV rider Mag just did a shootout with all these type of quad/golf cart thingys. They said the Rhino is the sportiest and most fun to ride around on. But it also has the smallest payload. So if you're using it more for work I'd maybe look at the other brands, but if it's mostly for play go for it!

I like the Rhino, but what I've read on it is it's not suited for shorter people (I'm 5'8) and the seat and steering wheel isn't adjustable. So until those features become standard, I'll have to wait.

If you do want to use it for work, I seriously suggest you consider the new for 2005 Polaris Ranger 700... IRS and a 700cc motor. It's a lot bigger too.

I know for just play and some work I would be getting the Rhino. **** I would just even love to have one for play if I had more places to ride that would accept that wide of a machine. Love the look and stance of the Rhino.

Sat on one at the dealership the other night. I'm 6'3" and I felt comfortable. I can see how it might be a reach for shorter drivers. I'd love to take one for a spin. I'll be they're a hoot to drive.

My brother is wanting to purchase one as he is handicap (missing arm due to accident) and cant drive his rubicon anymore. I also have been looking very closely at them and like them ALOT!! I have read that they are very stable and can even outclimb the grizzly due to longer/wider wheelbase and different gearing...They are also not nearly as tippsy as grizzly's are (not that the grizly is that tippsy)

Last Weekend at the Game farm, one of the regulars brought his new Rhino. Well it is most impressive, the "attack" and "departure" angles are awesome. Take a look at these pics of him going up and down a dam wall of loose sand that is about a 65 degree incline!!

Sitting on the left is correct, when I changed the last picture from landscape tp portrait in Windows xp, it seems to have inverted the photo as well???

Very odd, the original pic is correct

the rhino IS the grizzly. the rhino has all engine, suspension etc from the grizz. i've looked at one but i know i dont want to pay the 14,000 canadian price tag for one. i am getting an 06 grizz 660 in july or august this summer, i am buying it in alberta as i will be living there and working on the rigs. at one of our local Fall Fairs yamaha always has a display dealy and i asked on of the employee's the price tag of a grizz after taxes in BC, its 14,000 canadian after taxes OTD. so i'd rather spend the same amount of money on a grizz thats 1/2 the weight of a rhino. dont get me wrong i think the rhino is nice but im not about to fork out 14,000 for a machine thats 1100 pounds. now i've heard some real good things about the rhino and it will go everywhere other quads will go. the only limitations you have by a rhino is height, i've heard they are not too much wider than say a grizz, like maybe 2-3 inches wider and thats it. if you want more info go check out atvnation.com, "The Finn" has a rhino and he has done some mods to his. and he's happy with it. he could prolly tell you everything you need to know bout the rhino.
