Granted this isn't me but it was still cool to watch how well it handles on rough terrain, bends and how well it accelerated. May want to lower the volume for part 2.

Looks like a lot of fun. Glad to see it in action. Anything that you think it is missing as far as offroad capability?

I can't find a fault with it after watching the solo ride because the Kodiak 700 handled like a dream, or maybe it's due to the rider's skills. Would have been great to see him brake after coming out of the water, just to see how well the wet brakes work but overall not bad.

I'm willing to bet its a combination of both, knowing how to ride is important and getting a feel for what they're like, as goes with any other type of vehicle you have to control.

I wonder what his top speed was on that trail. It looks like he opened up the throttle on the straighter parts of the ride.

It's good to see it working well even at a higher speed. The suspension and handling seem more than capable.

The Kodiak's handling looks amazing when he's going into turns at high speeds, or at least what looks to be high speeds. Great traction too.

That in comparison to the Grizzly would be interesting, just to see/feel how different its going to be. But that comparison might turn out to be pointless.

They were both built to perform different tasks; Grizzly 700 for pure performance riding while the Kodiak 700 is built for recreational riding and hauling loads. It would still be fun to ride both and compare but it's ultimately dependent on what you plant to do with your ATV.

I'm sure once more and more of them get into the hands of publications and owners we'll hear little tidbits about the differences between the two, even more so from dealers which i'm sure can provide tremendous value on this.
