The dealers got to test them before the journos? My my, the auto industry could learn a thing or two!!
It's what i'm in favor of, these guys are on the 'front line' of these products, know them and a good portion actually passionate about them, or at least to the extent it helps them push units.

Good chance it does, having more power on the lower end helps especially with the 700 being as stealthy as its said to be.

It's even possible that some law enforcement agencies with large fields to patrol for what ever it may be (ex. grow ops), might get them too.

Border patrol potentially? Maybe not though, I think that contract is with Polaris. Buy American and all LOL...

If the contract is still active then indeed it will be just limited to Polaris. But I could see the potential for Kodiak growing.

The other thing to consider is border patrol getting UTV's from the Military, excess fleet from previous deployment. I know a lot of local, and state level police have been getting tanks and lower end armored vehicles.
