In 2016 they had a 48" 900 Ace. Saw a couple out on the trails. They did very well. See if your dealer has any leftovers.

The 2017 Ace 900 is a totally different animal. Its got a much wider stance and suspension travel comparable to a Rzr XP 1000. It won't fit on a 50" trail. I would rather have the 2016 version. I think the 2017 version gets too far away from what the Ace was meant to be. Its definitely a higher performance machine but you lose the ability to ride it on atv trails. A Rzr 900 Sport is almost the same width and you can bring a friend along for the ride.

Wasn't disagreeing with you, Greg. Just giving Rtick an option if he has 50" trail restrictions. I noticed the regular 900 ACE isn't listed as a 2017 model. I'd rather have the XP version too. I've seen some guys go through crazy rough areas at a much higher speed than I could ever attempt. That extra suspension travel just soaks up the bumps. But, I can get through the tight trees better than they can.

I meant to say I would rather have the narrower Ace myself. A one passenger machine that is 59 inches wide seems a bit much to me. The extra suspension travel and the non-detuned 78 hp 900 engine are nice though. Its definitely the fastest Ace of all of them. Sometimes agility and manuverability are more important than speed. Depends on where you are. If you have wide trails, width doesn't matter. If you have 50" restricted trails, then the smaller machine is the better choice.
