Need opinion on competitive model
Tell you what. Iím Polaris thru and thru. Own 3 of them for my hunting camp.
Hunting friend had a Honda for years and wanted an upgrade.
He felt after long looking and being a mechanic himself, the Yamaha Grizzly was the best bike out there.
I was screaming Polaris to him the whole time.
In the meanwhile I had a friend up north who bought a atv dealership and had a left over new atv he needed off his floor plan. I bought it brand new left over. Called a Hisun 700. Shipped it to Florida.
Buddy finds a Yamaha Grizzly with low miles and upgraded tires in like new condition and buys it, brings it to camp, and Iím like, yeah youíre right, this bike might be better than a Polaris Sportsman.
I take my Hisun out and we notice, both bikes are spot on alike !!! Research tells me Yamaha invested in China to build that Hisun plant using Yamaha old Grizzly plans.
My starter goes bad and I replace it with a Yamaha starter. Weíre convinced same bike, different countries of origin.
So what Iím getting at is, if it were possible for me to find an older Yamaha Grizzly in mint condition around a 2012, iíd jump all over it ! That would be the bike for me to buy besides a Polaris and Iím not a fan of the 570 too much.
The Honda run forever. Ride a bit rough, expensive to repair and a little weaker in the mud than a Polaris. They run water pretty good. To me, Honda has the best engines. Suspension is so so and at my age, my back kills me the day after I ride.
