Epic Venue for Wolverine X4 Launch
With a dramatic mountain backdrop, Queenstown in New Zealand’s South Island can lay claim to being the adventure sports capital of the world. Plus a range of tailor-made SSV trails make this adrenalin-fuelled location the ideal venue to introduce Wolverine X4 to YMA and YMNZ dealers and media.
The four-seat SSV is built for exactly the sort of adventure that Queenstown delivered at the Off Road Adventure facility from March 24 to 26.
20 key dealers from across Australia and New Zealand were transported in a cable car to enter a luge competition before learning more details about the new model over a gala dinner.
The next day, they tested Wolverine X4 in steep and technical terrain.
The following day, 15 media from both countries enjoyed the same treatment and the weather turned to rain.
However, the conditions merely highlighted the extreme off-road ability of the X4. The journalists were amazed at the way the X4 tackled the tight and muddy trails. They were also surprised to see how much fun the experience was:
“I’ve driven race cars at over 300kph around Phillip Island and I can honestly say this was more fun,” said Jez Spinks from Content Engine.
