Rumor? UTV Manufacturers cutting production

I was on a call with one of the guys at Diamo yesterday. He was telling me that all the UTV manufacturers were cutting production due to lawsuits and a possible change in federal law banning UTV's.

He said he heard a couple of them had hot new models but just plain scraped them due to this.


Anybody heard any of this or can you find out something about this?

Sure there is one famous SXS maker that has countless laysuits against them but have you heard of any they have lost yet? Don't believe everything your hear. If there is any cut in production (which I doubt) it will be because of the economy and hard to come by finanacing.

I agree with you Yamaha has won every case that I have seen, I don't see a ban on side by sides, good friend of mine borrowed my Rhino to use at Boyscouts of America yearly comfrence, he said he had 2 quads but they would not allow them on the scout camp grounds but they could use a side by side.

I think with republicans getting some control the likelyhood of a ban on UTV's is minamal. Now if the dems had maintained control it might be another story.

The only issue we been hearing and its still a floating arouns is the BAN on 4 seaters... If the vehicle was designed as a 2 seater then it has to stay as a 2 seater...

So far no BAN on Calif as of yet but it keeps coming up every season.

The main issue is the economy not many units are being produces because sales are down but not the prices.

Seeing how the Texas Rangers, Border Patrol, and the FBI all have various UTV's in their fleets, I doubt they will be made illegal any time soon.
