Press representatives mount up, buckle up and prepare for their turn on the off-road course. Sidekick operation doesn’t require a helmet, but these press representatives and ATV enthusiasts came very prepared and left very impressed. This display Sidekick features an extensive list of add-on options and was one of the crowd favorites at the demo event. Kubota carries 50 new accessories for the Sidekick line. Providing a complete presentation of the Sidekick is Kubota’s product marketing manager Roger Lee Gifford. Aimee Nash, Kubota product trainer, addresses questions from the press corps on the new Sidekick.

Attendees tour the Kubota Manufacturing of America facility in Gainesville, Ga., where the utility vehicle is produced.

Kubota Manufacturing of America (KMA) unveiled its gas-powered Kubota RTV-XG850 Sidekick utility vehicle to a group of North American press representatives at Lake Lanier Islands in Buford, Ga., Aug. 22 to 24.

The Sidekick is Kubota's fastest utility vehicle yet, featuring a powerful 48 hp gasoline engine. The machine delivers speeds up to and including 40 mph.

The main event was held at the lake's picturesque Pinelsle Point, where attendees took full advantage of some drive time during the Kubota Sidekick X-Perience ride-and-drive. This driving experience was on a lengthy and challenging off-road course and included several models of the Kubota Sidekick running the course simultaneously. Representatives from Kubota also presented in-depth presentations and a walk around of these new utility vehicles. The day was capped off with a relaxing dinner cruise on Lake Lanier.

The final day of the event was a tour of the manufacturing facility in Gainesville, Ga., that produces the Kubota utility vehicles.
