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.

I bought a 2016 Ace 900 for my youngest son. We made some changes to it that really improved it, including Walker Evans front struts and compression adjustable rear shocks, wheels with more offset, and better tires. It is insanely fun to ride, almost more so than any of the other machines we own (ATV, UTV). We kept the stock wheels and tires to put on when we need to take it on a 50" trail, but so far we haven't put them back on. It seems we find plenty of places to ride it that don't have the width limitations.

Most places near me have embraced utvs and don't have width restrictions. I was riding at a local park last weekend in fact. Plenty of full width rzrs and mavericks out there. There are a few trails that it would get tight to get through though. The full width Wildcat 1000 has quite a large turning radius, for example. Would definitely be some backing up involved to make some of the turns. I'd rather have a 50" Rzr or Wildcat trail(was riding in a group with one of those) to more easily get through the tighter spots. Also don't need as large of a trailer to haul it, they had a 5x10 trailer and it fit easily on it. You'd need a larger trailer to haul the wider machines. I have thought about getting an Ace myself, I'd probably go with the 570 as it has more than sufficient power and costs a lot less than the 900.
