2007 Grizzly 700fi

I'm taking a serious look at the new Grizzly 700.
Anybody have a chance to ride one of these yet?
Any opinions?

I haven't ridden one yet. I have seen a few. I wonder what kind of power they put out?

I only have seen them with the factory fender flares. They look like the are really wide. The flares stick out form the tire about 3" on each side.

the grizz 700 is a peice of work...fuel injected, power steering...and those fender flares are there for a reason when you throw the locker on, and blast thru a massive mud hole....tell me how dry you are you will be dryer than usual

Ok, I was trying to keep comment related to the quad in question... but everybody is telling you to check out something different. I have to put in my two cents. Go check out a Can-am 800. 62hp. Wheelies in low and hi with nothing but opening the throttle. Only thing I can fault it on is the front locker set-up could be better.

I did ride a Kawi 750i. WOW, awesome power!

I've not riden the 700 Grizzly, but I have ridden the 660's & didn't think it would ever have a problem getting out of it's own way.

I'm not as interested in having the fastest as I am in having the best overall machine for me. The fuel injection means alot to me with the wide range of elevations I'd be riding in. And the power steering seems like a great idea based on the handleing charistics of all the 4x4 quads I've riden in the past.

Polaris & Artic Cat are the other two I've looked into and am heavily leaning toward the Yamaha.

Guess I'll wait a couple of weeks when the local dealer is supposed to have a special "ride the new Griz on our track" promotion thingy.

Plus it just looks cool with those flares!

Am I going to fit this thing in my SB truck?

I had an 03 and I had alot of problems out of it overheating and snapping cv joints. Supposedly Yamaha changed all of that. I think yamaha puts out a pretty solid 4 wheeler.

A word to the wise, no matter what type of 4wheeler you get, I would get camo. It won't scratch nearly as easy.
