Raptor 700 is no longer the king

Recommended Posts

The newest issue of QUAD (JUNE/July) they do a big-bore shootout. They compare the KTM 525, Raptor 700, Polaris 525IRS, Polaris 525SRA. The overall winner was the KTM. 2nd place but nowhere near the KTM was the Raptor. They even state that the money one would spend on the Raptor 700SE is only 1000 less than the KTM. With everything that KTM offers on there quad, one would be a fool not to go with KTM.

I really like the KTM 525 myself, but I've been reading about engine issues with it. Take a look at the Can-Am DS 450.

I can't stand CAn am. It's mainly the attitude of the Can am owners. By the time I'm ready to buy it won't be a first year quad. They wiull have the bugs worked out. I use to own a KTM dirt bike. I love them, they make superior machines. They just have to work out the kinks.
