John Deere has taken the covers off a new 2016 Gator RSX860i, which confirms our report from May than an updated RSX850i was in the works.
The new RSX860i replaces the RSX850i and includes a new power steering option, backlit toggle switches, and more speed.
After months of speculation, we now have confirmation – Yamaha is coming out with a Pure Sport UTV. Yamaha revealed this with a short teaser video released on June 4.
While the video doesn’t give much away, it does show something moving very fast in the desert. We hear an engine humming and catch a brief glimpse of a UTV in a dust cloud at the end, before a graphic comes up that says “September 2015.”
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) recently approved a new model from John Deere for 2016 – the RSX860i. You can see the certification here.
If you are familiar with John Deere Gators, you’ll notice that name is very similar to John Deere’s first Sport UTV – the Gator RSX850i.

The Limited Edition DARPA Polaris Ranger XP 900 EPS and GEM electric vehicles will be used as part of the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Finals to be held June 5-6, at the Fairplex, in Pomona, Calif.
The Challenge Finals will have robots perform a number of tasks in a continuous course, simulating what might be encountered in a real disaster situation. DARPA will use the Ranger XP 900 EPS to help demonstrate a robot’s ability to operate and to egress from a vehicle, since they are among the tools commonly on hand in disaster zones.
