I’m from Columbia City Indiana, and have really gotten into enjoying ATV riding the last decade. I’ve owned a few quads. I currently have a 2004 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4×4, and a Can Am Outlander 800R XTP that I have modified quite a bit. Me and some buddies usually go riding about a half dozen times a year. I own 9 acres and ride around my property weekly (or more in the warmer months).
The last year or so, I have really been intrigued in SXS’s. They look like a LOT of fun and I really like the idea of taking my wife with me, or my oldest boy that seems to really be interested in the sport also (he will be turning 6 in a few weeks and will be getting his first youth ATV for his birthday). I also have other buddies that want to go out but don’t have their own ATV, so a SXS seems to be the answer.
At first I was looking at the RZR 1000S. But it seems for about the same price on the used market is the RZR 1000 XP (which is what I am leaning towards). I’ll need to sell both my Yamaha and Can Am to get one, and my price range will be somewhere between $9500 and $11,500. Ideally I’d like to find one with some mods like a half windshield, a winch, a light bar and possibly some performance upgrades.
I’ve been trying to do my own research, but any advice is always welcome.
