I don’t dislike it. I look forward to the XMR edition.
That yamaha really looks good. Dont know if I will replace the commander, mainly cause I hardly use it. That yamaho looks like a winner though.
On paper, the rmax is quit noticeably superior as I posted above. I would not doubt that that's the reason they pulled the release around the time of the rmax release.Well with great anticipation I have waited for the introduction of the new Commander. I was close to purchasing an Rmax because having had several Grizzlies I have always been impressed with Yamaha clutching when it comes to low RPM engagement for the trails and snow. Was in Montana seeing the grandbaby and saw this page talking about the new release. The most I can conjure up is a Ho-hum. Pretty much a Bombardier let down. They should have listened to what their Commander owners wanted to see in an upgrade, (They will come on here and tell you after much market research this is what the consumer wanted) but having worked with them on other projects back in the 70's and 80's their attitude has not changed. They are right and you are lucky to be able to buy their product. Instead of offering a high performance utility SxS they gave us a Prius with a trunk. Crappy clutches, crappy shocks, and wait for it - increased tow capacity. So I guess I will start looking for an Rmax if I can find one. The last three dealerships I talked to about the Rmax said we would like to sell you one, stand in line please.

I like the looks of both machines. But the addition 10" of length is crazy. Using the trail/sport platform, I guess it had to be that long to have a bed.
Another thing that worries me about the commander vs the rmax is the seating position. Look where the driver sits. Trail visibility is going to be much better in the rmax. Yamaha really did their homework. Not so much, can am.
I think they realize the didn’t really raise the bar. They just went under it!I see our Can-am Off Road Official has gone quite. No corrections or additions.
