From your previous post, what machine has standard storage to hold all of that gear? The reason for no locker on these models is a shortage of parts. Storage bags will more than cover your storage issues and the upper level models do come with the plastic covers on the racks but that has no appeal to me what so ever. You can get mounts for Chain Saws btw and why would you even think about tossing one on the rack plastic or otherwise? I am all in on this quad!The new 600 will appeal to casual riders and entry level folks. It will have a niche in the market and probably sell fine. But the lack of features will make it harder to attract experienced Riders. It's not an Alterra.
With that said, I'd like the opportunity to ride one. I am curious about how this chassis will handle since everything is laid out in an unconventional way. I would also like to see how the new 600 runs.
