*new user not sure how to post yet lol*

 

I was just lookin at that mag, (yamaha banshee 500cc, twin-cylinder, fuel-injected, four-stroke screamer) now in my mind that is not a banshee and never will be just because it's not a 2 stroke, but they say the banshee 500 has the capabilty of producing 85 hp. this would make it the fastest quad one could buy. however, it's more likey that yamaha would limit the power to somewhere between 60 and 70 hp, for saftey concerns.

 

I think this could be a fun quad to ride when its built but it could be years before you see it in your yamaha dealership.
