Our favorite: ZForce 950 2021

CFMOTO has been on a roll for the past few years. In the last months, the manufacturer has announced a brand new side-by-side vehicle: the ZForce 950. Its bold look and flowing lines make this quad truly unique in the industry. With its 963 cc engine and 79 hp, it offers very good performance. The adjustable suspension in compression and rebound allows you to adjust the vehicle according to your preferences or the type of driving you adopt.

The interior is well designed. First of all, the digital gauges offer a clear reading of the information even while driving. The seats are comfortable and there is much more leg room than other ZForce models. This makes it easier to accommodate taller people.

The basic equipment includes the roof, the side mirrors and the 3500 lbs winch. The half doors are also included but the opening lets in a lot of air. This may be desirable in the summer, but in the fall or winter you should plan to equip the vehicle with full doors to avoid freezing.

Access to the air filter is easy but the location of the fuel cap can be problematic. The rear deck is lower than what we are used to seeing for this type of vehicle. One advantage is that it is possible for the driver to see what is behind in reverse. In conclusion, the ZForce 950 seduced me!

The ZForce 800 EX and its trail model with a 50″ wide track are now popular in Quebec. They are very appreciated by quad riders on federated trails. They offer clean performance and are comfortable thanks to a suspension that provides a ride worthy of much more expensive machines. The “little” 500 HO remains one of the least expensive sport utility quad in the country, saving thousands of dollars compared to the brand’s or the competition’s 1000 cc.

The ultimate in the CFMoto line: the ZForce 950! This one blew us away during our tests. An agile and very stable VCC on the trail. The new styling is a bit flashier, but I must admit that we liked it! Set up on a suspension that can be adjusted for compression, rebound and preload, the vehicle is very comfortable on the trail. As always, we are dealing with a well-equipped vehicle that is protected for 5 years. All this is aggressively placed in the market.
