No.

Soild jackshaft, race brakes, more bracing between the rails, 4 soild rear idlers, 2 limiter straps, and a different pitch in track. Probably forgotten something.

Yes all that stuff, different pitch results in the 128inch on the XCR and 129 on the XC as I recall.  I love my XCR I can't imagine how nice this one will be

Glad they won that award, in exchange for giving the magazine the most advertising dollars. Any idea how much lesser depreciation they would have if they didn,t win that award ? I,m guessing they would be worth about 40 % of the new cost after 1 years depreciation, instead of 50 % where they were before this awesome award.

r motion is comfortable but the front end isn't nearly as good as what my AXYS was.  My 900T was colder than my assault to ride and the assault had a smaller windshield.  Front end of the G4 just doesn't feel right.  Running at high speed down the trail you could feel the bars moving a bit in each hand forwards and backwards.  Guys say DOO has the best fit and finish but I don't see it being better than the polaris.  At higher speeds it isn't as smooth as my assault was or my 13 nytro.  Headlight is fucking terrible at night

Im wondering if you would have the same opinion riding an XRS. The XS chassis XRS is awesome.

My opinion is very similar to that on the xs xrs.... steering feels contact-less at high speeds and is not confidence inspiring even slightly.

About the same value as a 2019 poolaris 850. Not bad.

My buddies just went down last weekend.  2019 850, 2700 or so miles.  Hell, that’s a good run for a Poo mil if you ask me.  :dunno:

Karma got a guy over on DOO talk.  He's a doo guy that bought an assault last year and hated it, tore it to pieces on line and sold it.  Well guess what went down on the weekend.  His 850 backcountry with 3600 miles.

Yep. Has the same amount of track on the ground as the 137 and has 6 more track windows than the 129.

very common compliant with the G4 and Doo alike.  It doesn't take long to figure out a Doo is coming up the trail toward you, the front light is darting around like crazy.  Doo really needs to rethink the front end.  R Motion is nice fore sure.
