Default Best Polaris year model?

Just curious on what the overall concensus is here on what is the BEST year Polaris ATV models?

My DAD still talks about his old man's 57 Chevy and his Impala back in the day, what would it be for POLARIS?

It would depend on the model like the best 250 was the 1987 Cyclone and the best 500 Scramblers are 2001-2003.Depends on what YOU like best

I would say it would be any year they increased the engine size. Lets face it, it's what always puts a smile on our faces, no matter what kind of vehicle we are sitting on. Yes, I agree that other things count, but who dosen't love more power.

07 for the 500 EFI because they went all out on the 500 that year before they cheapened up and went back to offering the 500 HO in 08

08 for the 800HO sportsman. It was the best 800 they built.

09 for the XP 850. Best atv they have built before they started getting cheap again.

I have to agree with stendori about the 02 500's.....the 01's and 02's seemed to be very tough for some reason.

I don't know much about the sport quads.

I had a 2001 Scrambler 400 4x4 that I loved. I think the best year for the Predator was 2005-2006. they added reverse and make ton of corrections to the overall designe. Now I have a 2006 Sportsman 500EFI and I am really enjoying it. I bought it used, but it had no miles or hours and feels "new" to me...Love the 4x4 quads..I guess I am getting older and don't want to hurt too much the morning after a long ride...

I agree with stendori, around 02, My 02 magnum has been flawless and I've beat the **** out of it. They should have labeled it a GTO. Gas,Tires,& Oil.

Would anyone seek out one of your favorite listed year models and buy one if in good condition?
