2008 Yamaha Rhino 700 introduction drive

Off-Road.com posted the first experience behind the wheel of the new 2008 Yamaha Rhino 700 F.I. I have seen. There were on hand in the Tennessee Mountains where Yamaha decided to introduce the newest version of the Rhino.

The article is almost entirely an in-depth review of the new features and design however, and you'll need to scroll almost to the bottom, just before the list of specifications to get their takeaways from the actual ride...

As I settled in I felt as if I was always falling forward. Could've just been me.

At first it seemed like the RPM's got there before the reaction of the wheels but I finally realized that it was spinning a lot.

The Rhino turned on a dime and this was great but sometimes too easy. It's not like it's crazy when you bump things, but it really could at least use a steering stabilizer of some kind.
