Default First quad - Suzuki LTZ400 Good choice?

I have been riding dirt bikes on trails (no dunes or racing) and sold my bike - it was too much maintenance. I have decided to get a sport quad for trail riding for woods riding. It will be a mainly medium speed (2nd/3rd gear stuff) with a mix of muddy spots, hard pack and sand. Typical Michigan trails.

I am looking for a quad that handles nicely without many mods needed and is reliable!

I know the 400 Zuke engine is super reliable and I am looking at models 2009 -2013 in order to get fuel injection and reverse.

I also considered the 400EX but most of the comparisons have indicated the Z400 handles much better and the ergonomics and ride are just better. I also thought about a 660 or 700 Raptor but the extra power is not really needed for the trails I ride.

Am I missing any other models that could be contenders based on my preferences?
