Whats your dream quad?

After owning Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, Polaris, Suzuki and now Can-Am, I would say the following.

A Yamaha 1000cc parallel twin 90hp motor on a 2-up ATV with Yamaha's power steering, CVT, IRS and 4wd system.

Yamaha is missing out on a lot of business by not having anything bigger than a 700. That's one of the reasons my friend switched from Yamaha to Polaris to get a 1000.

Yamahamoto, did you decide on a new purchase versus used?

700 Vtwinman, I agree with you. Anf JumboFrank too. I really have had excellent luck with my Yamaha's over the years. Same thing with Honda's. But for some reason, they have been hesitant to keep up. Not sure why. They were the leaders for many years, then they sat back to see where the sport went, and fell behind. Was suprised by the YFZ SXS, and the Viking, yet they seemed to have missed the mark on SIZE. And as a result, they got passed up again by Can-AM and Polaris. I believe Polaris is going after too many markets and will suffer as a result. Can Am is getting that way too. Everyone is chasing the performance golden egg and they are forgetting the average guy who just wants to have fun, is not interested in speed, and cares more about reliability and safety. Maybe that is Honda's niche. Yamaha is hard to figure out what they want to be. The raptors are nice, I thought perhaps dropping the 350 was a mistake. As a re-bodied Warrior, it was still a decent machine that hung with the best. The 700 I had did not get a lot of use. I sold it so I could get room for the Renegade. I kept the Rubicon, but it is taking up space too. I kept my wife's Grizzly 450, but it does not have EPS, so I am looking at a Renegade for her too.Probably a 570, but maybe a 650. Not sure yet. I'll keep the grizz for a machine that my daughter can ride when they visit. Same reason I have not gotten rid of the Rubicon.
