I am considering a purchase and wanted input from other owners regarding noise and heat. I currently own a Can Am Commander and I am considering selling it. I have enjoyed my Can Am but am wondering if the general might be a little quieter and maybe put off less heat because engine is behind the seats instead of in between. Can Am seem to have a little more noise from belt and diff than some other machines I have been in and I am thinking this might be a little better options. Thoughts?

I've been on slow and fast trail rides, and haven't noticed any excess heat. I don't have any Windows, so I have no filter to engine noise. It is a little loud, but not so much so, that you're yelling to the passenger. I have thoroughly enjoyed my General so far.

Having never owned a Can Am side by side I cannot confirm the caparison but the General in my opinion is fairly quiet I had a CF Moto and the motor was under and between the seats and it was VERY loud!!:smile2:
