I just got the new edition of DirtWheels , and they had a DVD in it from Polaris. It showed their whole line up of ATV's in it. There was a section on the DVD which put the new Outlaw with independent suspension against the 700r, the Yammy 450, and the Honda 450. It looks like it really was beating all of them in regards to trail riding. Now i know this was a biased test since it was by Polaris...but I have to admit, there were certain aspects on the outlaw that made me give it a second look....
