Hi guys I was looking at purchasing a 2021 Sportsman 570. Then I ran into a used 2019 Kodiak 700 EPS with only 200 miles in excellent condition still looks new and got him on price at $6,750. Is this a good price for this unit?

Personally I would negotiate and go with a new one, with the price stated for the used one. I get real concerned when someone is selling a almost new one for any reason.

In light of our Covid situation, that’s a steal. Probably 3k off for 200 miles. And there are almost no new bikes to be found.

That does seem like a good price for only 200 miles. That year is also the year the proven 686cc engine returned. I would be VERY vigilant on an inspection to make sure it wasn't drowned or other engine issues caused by the current owner and now they are trying to off-load their problems to someone else. However, the two Grizzly 700s I've bought were both used with low mileage and have been great buys.

I wouldnt be worried about a low mileage used machine. Millions upon millions of people in the states have plenty of expendable income to try out a new toy every year if that's what they want to do.

If I was in the position when I got my wheeler to buy it with cash, id likely be trading it in next year with 600 miles on it for something different.. Perhaps even trading/selling it now to get a nice sled to rip on for the winter. Variety is the spice of life after all.

As previously mentioned though, a thorough inspection of anything used is always a good idea.

If you can get a dealer or a ATV mechanic to check it out and then if all is well get it.

That's a good price for a low mileage 2019 700 EPS. The Sportsman 570 supposedly has around the same horsepower as the Kodiak 700 but Yamaha's transmission the best in the business and that means a lot in ATV world.
If you buy it you should change the fluids immediately unless he can show records of when it was last done.

No brainer. The Yamaha. Polaris has the worst reliability in the business next to the Chinese imports. I may get attacked on that but every person I know who owns a Polaris whether new or old has had some sort of PREmature problem with their machines. Check out Consumer Affairs on Polaris. My employer bought a new Polaris Ranger XP900 crew machine and within 3 months we had overheating issues....back to the dealer it went. Yeah, I don't want the Porsche I'll take the Fiat.
