the new dirt wheels has acticle on outlaw525, it says it is the fastest accelerating production quad. Sounds strange that they use same words as polaris web site

im sure it will be fast. but its still all marketing hype. every single sport quad released in the past 8 yrs has been labeled with the "fastest quad ever" moniker. from the 400ex to the raptor 660, to the cannondale 440 and z400, up to the yfz450 and ltr450, each quad was marketed as being the fastes ever. but we all know theres no way they can all be the fastest. i think the new outlaw will be faster than the z400, 400ex,etc. however, i still think it will be below the yfz, ltr, and 450r. so yea it will be a fast,wicked quad. but they all say that, its not like they are gonna market it as being slower than the competition. even if it is slower they WILL still say its faster.

just to prove this point did anyone get the new quad off road magazine? it has a promotional dvd in it from polaris showing off their new year model quads. it has a short comparison between the outlaw 500, yammi 700, yfz450, and 450r. the outlaw wins the shootout by a longshot. im not sayin the outlaw isnt capable of beatin these quads in the right environment but u can tell the video was produced and marketed by polaris. every manufacturer is goin to back up their own quad, no matter how much they haft to bend the truth.

That was marketed clearly around the suspension and the ability to go over obstacles at a faster rate. The new marketing is clearly based on motor and acceleration. But I agree, what else would they say. But looking at all factors I figure the Outlaw was right up there with the others. I saw many Outlaw holeshot pics at GNCC so it was not dog and we know about the Pred. Take that same bike drop 35 pounds and add an engine that everyone in the industry says is a monster for power and my guess is it will be fast if not the fastest right out of the box

i Say polaris has had all the other makes and models there when they did there building of the 525 outlaw so why not make it faster then the competition ?? In my oppinion i would say it will be top dog in the woods and in drag races.

I own a KTM 2002 KTM 520, and its a monster. Nothing touches it, and you have to struggle to keep the front tire off the ground. I'm absolutely positive this new 525 Outlaw will destroy any other stock sport quads, based on what I've seen the 2002 520 do.

I think it will accelerate faster than the competition! cause back when i got my Troy Lee they showed the same thing with the graph when all stock.And now they say the 525 will be faster than the 700R,LT-R450 and YFZ450.
