I ended up with a 2018 Pioneer 1000-3, and it was only a few bucks more that the 2017 model.
Nice machine - very large in garage. Too wide for a 7' wide enclosed trailer, so I bought a Honda towable cover from Bike Bandit which I hope will work out ($50 savings vs. a dealer). Apparently the need for a second batter may be a consideration. Care must be taken towing with fabric doors installed, but cover should eliminate concerns. I'm glad I got the glass windshield and hard top. Machine has lots of power - top speed about 70 mph which l don't ever plan to see in person. I also bought a 7' X 12' aluminum, tilt trailer that works extremely well.
I do think a Polaris would have filled my needs too. I'm slightly concerned that I bought a larger machine than would have been a best fit for me, but only time will tell. It is nice to have some reserve power with the larger machine.
