20 • November 27, 2017 • Powersports Business www.PowersportsBusiness.com ATV/UTV BY LISA PELISSIER CONTRIBUTING WRITER The top 10 lists for ATVs and utility vehicles (side-by- sides) were typical of inter- est on KBB.com. Japanese ATVs swept the top 10 most -researched sport ATVs list, while Polaris and Yamaha took all top 10 spots on the most researched utility ATVs list. The 2007 Honda Recon ES and the 2006 Polaris Hawkeye 4x4 are both newcom- ers to the top 10 most-researched ATVs under 400cc list. No Honda Recon or Polaris Hawkeye has appeared in the top 10 in this segment since Kelley Blue Book first began to track this data in 2010. Polaris dominated the top 10 utility vehi- cles list, ceding only one spot to another manufacturer. The utility vehicle segment as a whole gained 10 percent in KBB.com page views year-over-year. Lisa Pelissier is a senior powersports analyst for Kelley Blue Book. PSB Textron Off Road introduced its 2018 Havoc X, a high-performance side-by-side featuring improved suspension, ground clearance, 100 hp and 67 ft.lbs. of torque. Every Havoc side-by- side comes in Dynamic Grey with a 12-month warranty. It's built in Thief River Falls, Minne- sota, and will be available at Textron Off Road dealerships beginning in December. The Havoc X makes its way to the top of the crossover category with a class-leading double- A-arm suspension package deliver- ing 12.8 and 12.9 inches of front and rear sus- pension travel. Premium 2.5-in. aluminum King shocks provide race-proven features like piggyback reservoirs and 30-position compression adjustability for maximum per- formance, whether it's crawling over rocks or pounding through bumps. Front and rear swaybars reduce body roll and keep handling smooth and predictable. The bump-swallowing suspension perfor- mance is matched by the 13 inches of ground clearance. Fully-loaded, it boasts upwards of 18 percent more ground clearance than the competition, with 9.5/8.375 inches of front/rear clearance to ride over anything in its way. When duty calls, a Havoc UTV gets the job done with a 600-pound capacity rear dump bed that's aided by the quick and simple Fast- N-Latch bed accessory storage system. Its sig- nature extended cab contributes to the nearly 24 cubic feet of added storage that's easily accessed and substantially useful. A 2,000- pound towing capacity adds even greater ver- satility for any job. It includes a 957cc, SOHC, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, EFI engine that is designed and built by Textron, which feeds the Havoc with 100 hp and 67 ft.lbs. of torque to a smooth and durable CVT system. The selectable on-demand AWD system puts the power exactly where it's needed, while four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes with 9-inch rotors and dual piston calipers deliver enhanced braking performance. Tough 14-inch cast aluminum wheels are matched by burly 28-inch ITP Ultracross tires for outstanding traction and performance. The Havoc UTV features occupant com- fort, with two-tone bucket seats that offer 4 inches of adjustability and that are easily accessed via full impact- and corrosion- resistant doors boasting a large 10-square- foot opening. The cab is equally spacious, with a full 40 inches between the ROPS cage and the seat for wide and unobstructed views, with 31 inches between the instru- ment panel and the seat back for maximum comfort. The dash features a 5.25-by- 3.25-inch LCD display with adjustable back- lighting. And high-power LED headlights deliver optimum visibility, with LED accent lights for a touch of custom style. Additional features include electronic power steering (EPS), the extra range of 9.5 gallons of fuel capacity, standard 2-inch receiver hitch, a 4,000-pound WARN winch, 12v and USB accessory outlets, passenger grab handle, glove box, steel front brush guard and adjustable tilt steering.
