2016 Polaris Sportsman 450 opinions

I recently sold my Scorpa trials motorcycle and KTM 250 enduro and I am planning to get an ATV. I will use it in Ohio on my friends farm to haul deer back to the truck (two back surgeries and a second bicep surgery this past June) but also at the local ATV/motorcycle riding club I belong to for easy trail riding.

I see some good prices on the 2016 450's and was wondering if anyone here has any experience with them? I tried searching on here, but my search-fu is weak.

Somebody else told me that today too. I have had a few ATV's over the years but always race quads back in the day and EPS wasn't even around back then. I can get a new 450 for $4700 otd but EPS bumps the price up about $1300 more I think it was.

Re: 2016 Polaris Sportsman 450 opinions

Thanks folks. I am now really leaning towards one with power steering especially with my back and bicep issues.

If you can swing the EPS do it, best thing since sliced bread.
