I sat on one of the new vlx 700's(they only had one) a couple weeks ago. Seat was very plush, right up there with the new Grizzly 700 seat in softness. They put pretty cheap tires on them, you'd probably end up replacing those right away. But most stock tires aren't that great on most atvs. I didn't test ride it or anything. Its the same 695cc single made by Kymco that Arctic Cat put in the other 700cc atvs. For the money, its a good value. If I were looking for a new atv in that price range, it would be a toss up between it and the new Kodiak 700.
