Nearly everybody absolutely praises EPS. They can ride ride much farther and not even be tired or sore sore.

Those who say " they the man " just don't understand the full benefits of EPS.

Bottom line GET IT !!!

Totally agree!!! I definitely do not enjoy wrangling the steering on my 700 in low speed maneuvers. I'd rather not think of my quad as a piece of exercise equipment and fully enjoy the ease of steering on my 550. If it fits in the budget get it.

I opted to save $1200 and not get EPS when I bought my XP. And as nice as EPS can be, I rarely ever find I would need it. And after reading all the EPS horror stories of them crapping out ($2000+ repair bill) I am glad I chose not to get it. Granted few people have issues with their EPS, but it is another thing to go wrong.

Also with Non EPS you won't get the notorious "handlebar slop"

With all that being said, if I had a larger budget I may have got it.... maybe. It's tough because you can buy a bunbch of accessories for the money spent on EPS.

EPS is really sweet, I can ride around with my coffee with ease and enjoy!

If I want a workout, I would rather hop in the sac with the Mrs. and work up a sweat!
