I can tell you the North Edition Can Am 650's come with the heavy duty (6x6 style) trans with extra-low low-range gears, the 850 does as well. Which means its well suited to bigger tires, plowing, mud, and better then average belt life in abusive situations or compared to other Can Am's. Package wise the they are very similar, except for price the Yamaha is almost as much as the 850 version $10,899 vs a EPS LE Grizzly at $10,699. On Can Am's web site the 650 NE starts at $10,299, as far as power the 650 will clobber the 700, I have seen the crushing defeat a 570 XT gave a 700 grizzly firsthand in a 300 foot race, let alone the 650 or 850. The Can am also comes with better foot pegs standard, but the Griz has a heated seat standard. The base winch is more heavy duty on the Can Am at 3000lbs vs 2500lbs. Both have 14" rims and some variant of 27" ITP tires. ground clearance goes to Griz with 11.3 vs 11 for Canned Ham. So which is better, for my money I'd still ride Can Am unless Yamaha gets smart and shoves an 850 in the Griz next year lol. As far as heat between the legs thats an issue with both machines so...
