They even get way more money for versions with heaters, cabs, and track conversions. A few years back at Nelson's SnoMotion, there was a RZR 1000 2 seater, cab, and tracks for $49,000 !! like- "SAY WHAT?"

Yes. Some of my customers are Polaris dealers and they sell a ton of them and make good money doing it. They sell way more of those than sleds. Sales of those won’t slow down until financing becomes expensive

It's the same premise as pickup sales now. You see a lot more of the high end ones vs the low end. It's all about long financing to prove to the rest of the world how much money you can spend.

You can buy a nice rig for 15-20k. It wont be a turbo but a good 1000 na version will rip in the trails. I got a new Wildcat XX last fall and its been a lot of fun for under 20k.

They don't sell many here if nearly at all. I only saw one recently when traveling to town, frigging guy driving a polaris pulled out of a con field right in front of me and proceeded driving down the highway at 35 mph. I had to hit the brakes or would have nailed him. I would think those new roxor mahindra look alike jeeps will be a hot seller.

It blows my mind how many there are out there and how many guys will continue to buy when the changes are so minor over the years.

Never under estimate how much the dune guys are willing to spend, especially when a dedicated high end sand car can cost near a 100K.

My boss has a RZR Turbo S that will never see dirt, but will be a hell of a nice low hour machine for the next owner when he finally sells it at a loss.
Sold one of my sleds and bought one a while back. I get way more riding in with tires than tracks.
My 2014, 5500 miles so far and I plan to keep it forever.

I love seeing people ripping down the asphalt roads on these things. I wont even ride my scrammys on the paved roads. Tires are expensive.


They will sell lots of them until they close down the roads/ROW to them. I expect to see it happen with all the summer use of sled trail issues happening.

I'd rather spend 12k on a 2 up quad than 15k on a side by side. Our woods are pretty tight so you could probably get only a bit deeper into the woods than you could've with your pickup truck anyways.
