All I want in the future is an solid, extremely reliable quad that I never get bored of. So far the Brute has been great but I know the time will come when I'm ready for something new, and I hope there will be something awesome enough to grab my heart's desire.

What I think will exist:

EFI 450s

More big-bore sport quads

More IRS sport quads

More 800cc or bigger 4x4s

And honestly, I think in about 5 years, the companies will begin to consider electric quads. Once the Chevy Volt starts being sold, a whole new realm of possibilities will exist.

I agree, that would be AWSOME. The TRX is actually the lowest costing 450. At 7 grand! :rolleyes:
This gives me an idea for a new thread. I got a deal on my '05 at $4999back in Oct of '06. It was $5499 OTD. I had never ridden a quad in my life. I had 6 grand on me that day and was planning on buying a Mustang. For some strange reason thats beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I was sitting on an '05 when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said load it up in my truck. Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07.

Here is the Mustang I was going to buy instead.

Yeah there is no way I can afford a new quad. I would still like

to see some larger body smaller displacement quads from the major

manufacturers for the teens. So that they can ride a quad that fits

them but is not against the law or whatever.

Oh, and how about more 4WD sport quads? Like a Raptor that can power the front 2 wheels? Or more Renegade style quads...

And finally, LIGHTER UTILITY QUADS. It's getting ridiculous. Next thing we know, they will weigh 900-1000 pounds!

4WD sports sounds cool...

But, even though I'm in the "scene" for about 1 1/2 years, I don't understand the "HUGE" bore quad....e.g. the AC 1000.

Heck, my BF 650 wants to dig to China when I mash the throttle standing still.....

Sport quads I understand your concern about weight , but as far as an utility quad needs a certain amount of weight for utility purposes. I agree they need to produce more sport 4x4's.Also think they need more 5 speed utility quads and more bigbores with an SRA .

I agree about the utilities, but how much is enough?

My BF is about 620 lbs. wet...that's a LOT of weight, and has a towing capacity of 1200 lbs.

Ok....that's it.....me and my BF against Bigfoot in a tug-o-war!

:lsfight:

Yeah, I'd say with the ITP wheels/tires I have my Brute is over 650 pounds without me on it. The tires (TerraCrosses) do a great job of making it feel a lot lighter, but when it starts to lean, you can really feel it. Gets scary in off-camber situations.

I was being conservative then about the weight....

I have th '07 BF 650 4x4i (should be in my sig) with the ITP TerraCross' as well....

And MAN, do I agree about off-camber situations.

THEY SUCK!!!!!

And me being 6'2" doesn't help balance either....

If you've ever been to BRUTECENTRAL HOME , do a forum search on "lowering kits". I'm SO tempted to try it out.

But...since this has nothing to do with the future of ATVs, I'll stop now ;)

I have the SAME quad as you! '07 650i...great in everything except those off-camber parts. I would try out a lowering kit too if I were a trail-only rider, but I'm doing more and more mud each ride, so lowering it would do the opposite of what I want.
