When it comes out in October the KRX is definitely going to turn some heads in the side by side community. I've started to wonder what its biggest competitors are going to be and a couple come to mind with the Honda Talon, Yamaha YXZ, and the Polaris RZR. My guess is it will be compared a lot to the Talon because they're both new models. When the KRX comes out what do you think its biggest competitor will be?

Yamaha recently announced all-new XT-R models for some of their ATVs and side-by-sides, including the YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS.

Here's some information from a Yamaha press release that gives us an idea of what Kawasaki has to do to beat the competition.

2020 YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS: Pure-Sport Fun and Domination from Coast-to-Coast
The 2020 YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS are the ultimate pure-sport high-performance off-road adventure vehicles, capable of handling a wide variety of terrain – from open deserts and dunes, to muddy trails and rough, rocky terrain. The YXZ models are powered by Yamaha’s industry-first 998cc triple-cylinder engine and industry-exclusive manual transmission, delivering the only direct-connection experience and feel in a Side-by-Side.

Designed with either a full-manual five-speed transmission for ultimate vehicle-to-driver connection, or with aluminum paddle shifters in the high-tech SS package, all YXZ models have Yamaha’s Real World Tech features, including On-Command 4WD, speed and torque-sensitive EPS, and prewiring for the Yamaha Adventure Pro GPS. Capability, comfort, and confidence is optimized for unmatched pure-sport performance with high flow intake and exhaust, an oversized rear-mounted radiator, and 29-inch Maxxis Bighorn 8-ply rated radial tires.

Special Edition YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS models are further equipped with painted bodywork, color-matched interior, true beadlock wheels, and high-spec, fully-adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 shocks. The all-new YXZ1000R SS XT-R package includes all SE upgrades, in addition to Yamaha-exclusive Maxxis Carnage 8-ply rated radial tires for exceptional traction and durability, centerline pod lights for enhanced illumination, a custom front grab bar with a heavy duty WARN VRX 4500 winch and integrated in-cab switch, a composite suntop, and contrast-stitched seats.

Available at authorized Yamaha dealers this fall, the 2020 YXZ1000R will be available in red with aluminum wheels (MSRP $18,999), and the Sport Shift in White with aluminum wheels (MSRP $18,999). The Special Edition YXZs will be available in Team Yamaha Blue with aluminum beadlock wheels (MSRP $20,699), and the YXZ1000R SS XT-R model will be available in Titanium Bronze / Tactical Black with suntop, WARN winch, and beadlock wheels (MSRP $21,699).

Yamaha owners also received a survey for wanted accesories and one was a turbo kit for the wolverines along with a 2" lift and long travel A arm setup so hopefully Kawasaki will be very competative with some high performance options availlable too
