My own comparison and opinion

Not that many will care...

I stopped by a dealership yesterday since I scooted outta work a few hours early. This particular dealership sells both Kawasaki and Yamaha.

Just pure eye candy, ergonomic, etc. I gotta say I like the Rhino a bit better. When I sat in the Teryx, it felt alot like my rancher friends Mule. I didn't like how the shifter just slid inside a steel plate carved out for the slots. The fit and finish of the Rhino was more appealing with the rubber boot around the shifter. Same thing goes for the locker. On the Kawi, it's another rod you have to pull. On the Rhino it's a nice lookin' button on the dash.
I felt like I was a bit more comfortable with my left foot on the Rhino too and I'm 6'2. I REALLY liked the fact that the Rhino had a flip up hood. You have to remove the cage to get the hood off of the Teryx.

I know - I'm leaving a major part out - PERFORMANCE. But I gotta consider that I'm probably going to go with a long travel, and a few upgrades so there goes a lot of the suspension aspects right out the window. All that's left is that secksy V-twin.

This was the first time I've ever seen a Teryx, and the first time I got to compare them side by side (no pun intended). I honestly had an open mind because I was seriously attracted to the V-twin of the Teryx. But for a little less top end, I'm going with the nicer fit and finish.

Once it is actually installed and dyno'd I will have something more accurate, however, I think it is supposed to make right around 80hp.

LOL what? What did I do?

The LE is perfect for someone who does not really want to make too many changes, for those who want to mod and change things out, the LE is just added money you do not need to spend.
