    Question Can-Am Defender 1000 -VS- Honda Pioneer 1000

    How do these two NEW 2016 high-end UTV's stack up?

    - Geared (automatic & manual) transmission (Honda) -VS- Belt-driven CVT (Can-Am)?
    - Modular cabin components (Defender) -VS- Bolt onto round ROPS (Honda)?
    - Japanese (Honda) -VS- Canadian (Can-Am) design/manufacturing?

    I would rather spend enough $ to get a really nice "stock" UTV that will last, than pay for a bunch of aftermarkets parts to correct what wasn't built right at the factory to begin with.

    Thanx, Dave.

    PS - Please limit comments to these two makes & models, I've eliminated all of the others.

    I have a 2016 Pioneer 1000 and I can't say enough good about it. I love the transmission. I feel it will last as it seems to be very well made and engineered.
