Arctic Cat has a good sale going on now. Picked up a new ride for my girl this week. A 2017 Alterra 400 brand new for $4,500. Couldn't pass up the chance to upgrade. Took it out yesterday and she likes it.

Mike

Already had it out twice, she likes it. I changed the headlights to LED last week.

Those are good looking machines. Last week we were at our local dealer to look into an Alterra 300 or 400 for my 21yo son. The salesman told us he would need a 700, or a 500 at the bare minimum, and didn't seem interested in talking when we weren't into going that route.

I would find another dealer, the 400 has plenty of power.

Belated NICE QUAD post! LOL

Rode my 2001 Sportsman 400 for years and never ran out of power...people these days act like thats small. Lets not forget back in the 80s when the ATC350 came out and we stood in awe! We were used to 250cc and under.

And today's engines are making more horsepower and torque from smaller cc engines.

No one NEEDS a big engine...we simply want them. Of course, you won't get the same results from a 300lb man on a 400 compared to a 150lb man!

I agree. Most of us really want that 1000cc beast, but will be fine on a fraction of that. I have ridden my sons 250 Ozark and its carried me no problem. It's a bit small framed for me , but it carries my weight and moves along fine. I'm 6'3" and 210# . I have never felt like I didn't have enough power on it. I fell cramped on it because of my height, but that's it.

I love my Vinson 500, but really want a 750 King Quad. Part of my "Need" for the King Quad is that 750 motor that I don't "need", I just want. The other part is the IRS. I like the cushy ride. The Vinson is a SRA. Otherwise it's an AWSOME machine that I truly enjoy.
