Default New SxS Sport Models

It's been almost a year since the last SxS discussion. With the 2017 models available, what are the thoughts if you were to buy now? Polaris, Can-Am, Yamaha, there are several 1000s to pick from.
Curious what everyone's experiences have been as I am considering adding to the toy collection. Looking at a sport model and I'm torn between Can-Am Maverick and, I hate to say it, Yamaha.

As for side-by-sides, we have both a RZR and a YXZ1000R (the manual shift model) in the garage right now, plus I've been able to ride other folks buggies and hands down my favorite buggy is the Yamaha. It's been (knock on wood) extremely reliable so far and with the manual transmission, the fun factor is off the charts.

My wife likes the idea of a Can Am, press the gas pedal and go. I like the idea of shifting on the Yamaha. Gonna be a tough decision.

Then I wouldn't rule out the new YXZ SS models, paddle shifters on steering wheel with no clutch. Seems to be very popular with those who want the ability to shift but don't want the hassles of a clutch.

How about from a reliability, maintenance, aftermarket parts viewpoint?

So far the YXZ has been better than the RZR. Of course, one of the biggest things is a real transmission vs. those blessed belts. We take good care of our machines but when we're riding, we don't baby them either. Knock on wood, the YXZ is holding up great.
