New member and 2018 Havoc X owner
I just made the decision to purchase a new leftover 2018 Havoc X from a dealer about 1.5 hrs. away from me. For the price ($13k) I don't see how I could go wrong, after doing some research and comparisons to other machines (I considered the CF Moto uForce 800 and Polaris General primarily). It appears much better than the uForce (which was about $11k) and for the significantly lower price compared to the General, that leaves alot of extra money for upgrades.
I have not picked it up yet, as the one I purchased was not assembled yet (I looked at the demo unit they had in the showroom, as well as another customer's decked-out one that was in their shop). I go back later this upcoming week to grab it. The one in the shop was heavily customized it appears: steering wheel from a Stamped (shorter depth giving a little more room between the driver and wheel - I sat in it and it is noticeably better, and only about $50!); LED lights front and rear, bumpers, roof, split windshield, larger tires, AJ flares, and likely more that I didn't notice. Nice machine for sure.
After doing some reading and my own observations of the machine, I'm looking to make some mods relatively soon after getting it, in this order I think:
1. Parking brake mod (I may design and fab my own)
2. Snorkel system for the CVT and engine air intakes and all vents (diffs, fuel, etc.) - I will definitely design and fab my own, as I don't like the products I've seen for the Havoc since they go up thru the "extra cab" area floor and I don't want to do that
3. windshield & roof (undecided on split or full ws)
4. fender flares (again, I may fab my own from HDPE or something)
5, Rear bumper
6. Extra LED lighting
I also plan on talking to the dealer about the couple of recalls/TSB's I've seen mentioned as well, to ensure they were completed or addressed, and preferably before I pick it up.
I'm open to suggestions, and look forward to getting this thing dirty!
