Default 2016 ODES Assailant 800

Does anyone have any thing good/bad to say about the 2016 ODES Assailant? They seem to be a nice wheeler, plus 5 year warranty.
Thanks for any advice!

Its a gamble buying something a little less known. Many times the price isn't that much less than the Can-Am or Polaris or whatever other vehicle it is very similar to. CF Moto is another one that is very similar. I think they have built a little better reputation if you can find a dealer nearby. Their sport utv is very much like a rzr and their utility based one is much like a Ranger.

I like that when you look at the spec sheet.. under steering it says, HANDLEBARS! LOL 60hp though,,, that's impressive.

Looked under some of the parts and was kinda shocked.. Clutches and belt are sure not inexpensive and the parts breakdown doesn't appear to show any parts to repair them as it does with most other makes. 800cc Clutch

I think buying a known commodity was probably the better choice in the long run. If you had bought an Odes, the resale value would have been half what the Can-Am would have been in 5 years had you wanted to sell it or trade it in.

Some of the imports are looking way to close to the name brand. Had a guy up here selling a import as a rzr. I actually did not notice until i started looking for badging and it was all gone. I knew the price was to good to be true..LOL
