Have any of you looked at the Speed UTV and considered purchasing instead of the KRX?

Speed UTV = Unicorn...

Ask all the guys who put down deposits how that’s going. I recommend anyone considering one to first do your homework and know what your getting into.

I have read the car should be released any day! I have also read that it is unproven technology and why would you want to be part of the R&D team. No parts network etc.When you say unicorn you don't believe it will actually happen I suppose. It looks good in the vids and on paper but If there aren't any real ones ones who knows.

I see pricing all over the map...is the base $30K? I understand folks have different perspectives on everything...cars, houses, women etc. I cant understand 30-50K on a utv either buying new or upgrading. I would buy a rubicon jeep and be done. Makes the world go round!

Well, I use to think the same about the jeep. I’ve had and have several including a rubicon on 35’s. And then I bought a sxs and have 25-30k into a pioneer. Then I bought the Krx and there’s just no comparison to a jeep or the Honda pioneer. I’d 10-1 prefer the Krx for actual trail riding. It’s sooooo much more fun. The jeep has its place but it’s just different and won’t do what the sxs can. I still think the prices for some of these sxs are outrageous but there was a time I couldn’t imagine and wouldn’t spend 15k on a “toy”. Now that’s just laughable... with that said. I haven’t and won’t spend 50k on a sxs when I can spend 20k and have a Krx that is awesome. There are some things I like about the speed but again.. it’s all hypotheticals at this point.

I'd let a few friends get them and see how they liked the overall experience. RG seems to be super OCD on performance details and I'm sure it is an impressive hi speed desert ride. But parts is parts. I got enough time lost waiting on Kawi parts.

I'll admit SxS's don't represent good value, but there is no stockish Jeep that can even begin to keep up with a sport SxS beyond a smooth surface, and the Jeep will knock your fillings out to boot. I love Jeeps, but it's a whole different realm.

I have watched every episode of RG's presentations, and on paper, and by the spec's it is going to be a great machine. The design is head and shoulders above the rest. Execution remains to be seen. For all those waiting, I hope they can hit the ground running, and not have teething problems.

I have watched some the episodes and read about the car. I have no need for it, nothing about the car that is worth 35-40 K to me. I suppose the same logic translates to a corvette...I just don’t have a need for it, my RAM truck is fine!

Episode 58 is basic engine stuff....it all seems like a scam to me. Venture capitalist money , seed money, deposits all add up then bankruptcy.

I think 1st of all they are freaking ugly as hell!!! and to me anything that has rg on it I will never buy period!!! All I can say is we will all see how these cars will hold up n we will all see how rg will stand behind his product!!! All the parts ect are the company speed parts!!! We will all see when these cars break n they will truth will come out. The hardest & real R & D testing is not by speed employees its always the customers n always will be. For me l cannot wait for these speed cars to be released to the customers. There is no way there is a perfect off road machine out there even if u pay 35,000 to 40,000 for a stock sxs lol. I paid alittle over $19,000 otd for my KRX and l took it over 3 to 5 ft washouts, pretty damn big hills n rocks. So far it goes anywhere l point it. Does it have a turbo nope, Does it have big HP nope and yet it goes everywhere l want it to go n for under 20,000. And l have 6,000 trouble free miles well except for them lousy clutch weights l had to throw that in lol. Yes now in the dunes yes the speed car would kick my azz. But where l ride is in the rough stuff the krx would hold its own against the speed car, Because u sure do not need the turbo n big HP n a huge price tag where l ride. Just a good strong built car. I would love to see someone that buys a speed car and do some rides with the blown budget guys to really see how the car holds up n what it can do. Them guys are nuts lol. But anyway its going to be interesting for sure. Again l cannot wait till they come out!!! And if it does turn out to be n awesome machine in all conditions it will make all the other brands step up with their products. And the prices will start around 32,000 to 34,000 from what l hear, And after the 1st ones are gone then the price will jump a couple of thousand. King of hammers is another good testing ground. For the people that are going to be buying these cars l sure hope u have good luck with them. Too me 35,000 to 40,000 is way to much to gamble on a sxs. I will stick with my slow $20,000 dollar KRX!!! Just saying.

Holy wall of text! 🖕😁🖕

I'm intrigued by what he's trying to do and wish him the best. But I don't think I would be a willing beta tester for $40,000.
