Worth The Buy? Polaris Sportsman 1000 HLifter

The machine has 50 hours/558 miles. 29.5" x 9" Outlaw 2's all the way around with like-new tread, as well as disc brakes. Snorkel, relocated radiator, 3500 lb. wench, and rear cargo box all included..What you think about the hours and miles if I'm not mistaken it avg 11mph in speed...wondering what your take on this bike....They wanting $10950 im going to see if i can get them down to maybe $9500

I see used atv's for sale priced higher or close to what a new one sells for. The accessories is what seems to add the value. If you go to a build your atv section of a dealer website and add the accessories on the atv you are are looking at you will get a better idea of the value.

Fact of the matter is itís still a 2016. Itís already 3 years old.... sure the hours and miles are decent, but they are still asking top dollar.
Give you an example, I just sold my 2017 1000 Touring for $9,000. I lost $3,000 in two years. Iíd say donít pay anything over $9,000. For another couple grand you could have a brand new machine.
My 2 cents...

If you're serious about riding in mud, then it's a great 4 wheeler.
The High Lifter is, slow(55mph max stock), has less suspension travel, so it doesn't handle the big bumps well at speed at all, bad turning radius, no front rack.
A few other things I can't think of right off the bat, BUT, if you really ride in the mud, it's great, almost perfect.
I was able to get mine for a good discount new, and I know what I do to my mud bike, I would lean toward buying new, just me.

Wow 55mph is too slow. That gear reduction probably eats the gas too. My machine tops out at 81mph. An RVS reflash should bump up to 90mph Lol.

Just the other day, I was riding at a local mud hole, water is down, so the mud is tough, thick and bottomless in some places. Broke an axle, so I finished the day in 2 wheel drive, so I had to haul ass through the holes and use momentum to blast through. Looked at the speedo when blaming through a hole, 20 mph, felt like 103mph....
I don't think I've ever gone faster than that in the mud. The ruts, bumps, and invisible terrain make it impossible to go faster on a stock suspension machine.
Axle breaking stuck, winching out at an angle, no other anchors available.... Ker Pow.
