The all new 2012 John Deere Gator is out and looks to have more performance in mind!

While the RSX 850i is definitely the more sports oriented machine, the good folks at Deere also released a smaller more utility XUV 550. From what we hear the XUV 550 is a smooth riding machine and a nice lower cost machine that gets the job done.

The RSX 850i with it’s beefy 62 HP V-twin 4 cylinder gasoline engine knocks off 0-30 times in the 3 second range. This machine tops out at 53 MPH and is the first RUV powered by a motorcycle engine!

I am new to the site and have wanted a gator for years and now they have some that look like they belong in the same arena of the Rangers, Commanders, etc.

So what is the release date of the new 850 RSX. I am probably going to consider this and the Can-am Commander 800. I dont think the Deere will have the 70mph top speed, but why would I really need to go that fast, and I am hoping the price point is a little more friendly.
