The MULE PRO-FXR simply stands out with its painted bodywork and contoured two- toned seats. The cast aluminum wheels are a nice touch, as is the rear bumper. We found the 812cc three-cylinder engine to offer everything we needed while making our way to the vicinity of the Hearst Castle. But it was probably wise to soak in as much of the scenery as possible, as it's not an every- day opportunity to ride such an exceptional machine on such historic grounds. PSB KAWASAKI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 vehicles in the real world, allowing Wolverine X4 owners to confidently realize their off-road adventures with family and friends." Standard Wolverine X4 color options include Graphite (MSRP $15,999), Yamaha Blue with overfenders and cast aluminum wheels (MSRP $16,499) and Realtree Xtra camo with overfenders and cast aluminum wheels (MSRP $16,899). Donning overfenders, painted bodywork, color-matched interior and shock springs, and cast aluminum wheels, Special Edi- tion (SE) models are available in Matte Silver and Matte Carbon (MSRP $17,249).

The full cab enclosure from the factory was met with high regard from dealers. Carbon fiber body color options are black, white and red. Rides aboard the Dominator X2 Special Edition 1000 side-by-side and Assailant ATV allowed us to experience the plethora of avail- able features, not to mention the confidence that comes with the four-year engine warranty. The 800cc class models put out 60 horsepower thanks to the ODES-built V-twin engine, and it's cranked up to 86 horsepower for the 1000cc class machines. The Dominator X2 and X4 units all fea- ture a 7-inch touchscreen display, with stan- dard GPS and Bluetooth accompanied by a 2-year replacement screen warranty and unlimited updates. ODES' 2018 side-by-side MSRPs are as follows: Dominator X Special Edition 2 Door 800: $16,095 Dominator X Special Edition 2 Door 1000: $17,295 Dominator X Special Edition 4 Door 800: $17,595 Dominator X Special Edition 4 Door 1000: $18,995 Dominator X2 LT Zeus 800: $14,895 Dominator X2 LT Zeus 1000: $16,495 Dominator X4 LT Zeus 800: $16,395 Dominator X4 LT Zeus 1000: $17,995 Dominator X2 LT 800: $13,695 Dominator X4 LT 800: $15,195 Dominator X2 ST 800: $9,995 Dominator X4 ST 800: $11,495 Ravager LT Zeus 1000: $16,495 2018 ATV MSRP is as follows: Assailant Zeus 800: $9,995 While the side-by-side lineups come with some impressive standard features, Smith says there are plenty of aftermarket products for dealers to sell. "The Two Brothers Exhaust systems are really hot items due to the power increase given to the unit," Smith said. "Another hot item are the soft enclosures that are sold through Side By Side Enclosures. Although our UTVs come with a lot standard, you still potentially need a UTV cover, UTV enclosure, exhaust system, battery tender — the items that are very useful and ben- eficial to own with your ride. Over the next year ODES will be expanding to storage racks that would mount to the hood or roof, aftermarket race shocks, new ICE and Wet- sounds media system that works with our touchscreen LCD. We try to add most of the accessories to the vehicle so people get a better value, but if 90 percent or more of our buyers cannot benefit from that acces- sory being standard, we will make it an aftermarket one." ODES buyers, Smith says, trend toward pur- chasing more practical products for their units. "We focus on the helping with the day- to-day use of the UTV, which is the com- mon buyer," Smith said. "I think the market is moving to better accessories that would benefit hunters, families, the farmer — like storage, racking, lighting and so on. Similar to how Nissan took advantage of the dog lover and designed a dog-specific crossover SUV. People will buy it because it serves their practical daily needs."
