The new RG Pro ROPS cage with front
and rear intrusion bars is great, and it
will retrofit on all Wildcat 1000s. Noise
and vibration in the cabin are tolerable,
but the inner frames on the LTD doors
bang your knees. We’re not fans of the
console passenger hold-point, as it’s
very close to the range selector. Overall,
ride quality is very good.
HOW ARE THE BRAKES?
Strong, but other 1000s have
stronger brakes and shorter stopping
distances from speed. Dual-piston front
and single-piston rear Hayes calipers
squeeze non-perforated rotors, and
there isn’t an engine braking system.
