1999 PANTHER 550 LIQUID 2UP

I have a buddy who has one. I have ridden it, and it is great for moderate 2-up trail riding. Quite honestly, I like the 580 motor better. I can't explain it rationally, but it seems so much more powerfull, although the horsepower numbers do not seem to reflect it.
I had a 1997 Pantera 580, which I sold to a buddy when I bought my Pantera 1000. It was very strong out of the hole.
In either case, if you are into "Trail" riding, 2-up, it is a great sled.

Another option. I had the oportunity to rent a 1997 Ski-Doo 583 2-up for a weekend when I was out of town. I was very impressed with it for 2-up cruising, although I still liked the cat better.
Long Live the Tripples !!!!
