I owned 2 Grizzlys before and I just like the feel of them better. Just trying to sell this and get back into a Grizzly.

I would say it is high, I got mine new otd for $9k with the winch, tax, title, and license. (then I added some others things)

Side note: I ride with Grizzly guys, they have more problems then my Popo's and yet they rip on the Popo's???? One of the guys rode my new one and hated it, liked my older sportsmans ride better. To each there own I guess... PS with my stock tires on the 850, i have had to push them out 3 or 4 times and they have big mud tires, that 3 wheel drive system is horrible, just saying. Also it seems they tip over at least once on every ride so the Grizzly's are very tippy, I would recommend the Can am over the Grizzly, but I think the Can am rides more like the Popo, so you would prolly not like it.. Here are some pictures of the Grizzly stuck where my new 850 made it through, LOL... So good luck with the Grizzly, Plus I think the new ones are real spendy too..

Not sure which 3 wheel drive system you mean, but the Grizzly has a lockable front axle. I like the power delivery on them, as they engage much sooner and smoother then any polaris I have ridden (lower rpm). That being said, the shorter wheelbase and slightly narrower width do make it seem a little tippy...but the steering is so much easier then my sportsman. If they extend the wb a bit and come out with a vtwin, I will have to seriously consider one

If you have riddin one you know what I am talking about, when you hit the 4 wheel drive you only get 3 wheels to spin, you have to pull a lever and hit a button to get the diff to lock and by then your stuck, I like hitting my awd button and getting all wheels to go. And I have seen him hit his diff lock many times and it seems to never work, kind of intermittent for it to work. He may just have gotten a bad quad but both of his are the same, well he is down to one now as one crapped out (was an 08) granted he beat the piss out of them, but again I was right there with them on every ride and the old 800 always out shined them (maybe thats why he rips on Polaris, cuz he's jealous, LOL) All and all Grizzly's are good bikes, I am just pointing out things I have seen from experience and want everyone to know that all machines break regardless of make or model, I have even seen the supposed everlasting Honda's crap out too trying to keep up with us in the mud ...
