Just happened to find a Can-Am BRP dealer in town, so you know I had to check it out! They only had Outlanders, and some Jet skis, and you better believe they weren't cheap. I don't think that just over 28,000 USD for an Outlander is a good deal! After chatting with the sales people, they let me know that they had only sold two of the quads so far. They had no idea where someone could ride them and since there are not too many pickups or trailers, there is no way to get them from one place to another without hiring a rollback truck. Seems like a little too much trouble for me.

It is their import taxes that make things so expensive, anything that is imported is a "Luxury Item" so it is taxed anywhere from 25 to 100% of the purchase price, like the ATV's they are taxed at 100% of the Import price. Its the same with other items, cars like Mercedes, BMW, and motorcycles like Ducati, or Harley Davidson are usually taxed an extra 50% of the purchase price. It promotes buying cars and motorcycles made in China, and keeps their manufacturers competitive with foreign manufacturers. If the US would do that, we might still make things like TV's, and Iphones here.

Nah, it just has the 100% luxury tax applied to the price. 175000 CNY~28,000 USD, so its a $14,000 USD quad, being taxed until its double the American MSRP. Its actually a good way to keep production based inside of China, and to give Chinese manufacturers an advantage over foreign companies trying to import their products into China. Its what the US should be doing, but we aren't.

      Hi there i was needing to ask a question. I may soon be getting a UTV of one sort or another and not sure what is good or better to avoid?  So far i hear great things about the Arctic Cat Prowler and Havoc, and many speak well of the Kawasaki Mule all but the 610?  
       
       So what are your thoughts and especially experiences?  What have you had and used in farm life and trail riding that has held up well or hasn't?

      What is a good option for a 13 year old that is dying to get her very own atv to ride? Thanks in advance for your recommendations. I currently own a Polaris Sportsman 570 and have been happy with the Polaris sportsman line but have ruled out other brands.
