You are right there, the JD dealer was not overly friendly either, no test riding except for a quick around the parking lot after you put a deposit down! Fuel economy in the JD was worse and top speed was only 30 mph. They were having some "sales" on them but price was still 1500 higher with the "sale" price. I am not a fan of the JD colors as well. I am a big fan of Artic Cat also, but that bright green color is a turnoff for me, thankfully they are offering other colors now. To sum it all up you just can's beat the Kymco 450i for what you get for the price and the dealers have been great, they are not afraid of their product.
