2016 Yamaha 700 $5,999. Told dealer we had cash and would offer $4,500. End of year getting rid of old quads should be priority and a salesmen/ dealer should negotiate, No? What happens to old model quads if they are not sold? Why would a dealer not want to negotiate a cash deal? Anyone have any advice on buying, saving, dealing, finding the cheapest prices for 2016 models.

Maybe consider second hand or saving up a bit more cash.

I mean, because the price is already quite low, I doubt they would want to drop down that much just for a cash deal. They really don't mind. They'll get sold at some point and in the later years when they still have them, they'll just have a blow out and get rid of them easily

I'm guessing they aren't willing to budge on the price is because they have them priced very competitively against all other similar ATV's. Unless obviously you go with a "Off brand" ATV. Also where you are buying this ATV probably isn't at a flee market or in Mogadishu where you can barter with chickens and bullets. I would highly recommend This quad for the 5,999 price It is an awesome quad it handles very well and has plenty of power. I would guess anyone who has bought one for the utility/trail riding purpose hasn't been disappointed with there purchase so far.

In my experience the dealer probably won't come off the price that much especially for this machine. However, I recently purchased the 2016 EPS SE for well below sticker but ended up just short of sticker after taxes. For me though I had spoke with a lot of dealers that were within a driving distance that was still economical. The dealer I actually found was 6hrs away but I was lucky enough to be traveling through that area and picked it up on the way home. Some dealers are looking to move quantity so that they get better selection and pricing. Others are working on really thin margins. Do your homework and be willing to budge on your number and I think you can still get a good deal. I was also fairly patient and drove my buddy nuts talking for the past 2-3 years waiting on the right ride for my situation. Incredibly happy and content with the Kodiak 700 and decided to splurge on the EPS SE for the difflock. Good luck!

Just got my 700 about New Years after playing the walk away game with a couple dealers. Had the check book out and they don't really care. Best I could find was the $1000 list (2016) of $6990 and then tax.

Intrest rates on there money isn't high enough to need to move units. They can just sit on them until they move. Besides you should be able to know that your already stealing the quad at that price. Anything else on the market even close to that kind of price for the value?

Not to be mean just not wanting to give you b.s. advice.

The dealer is going to make some money on it no doubt. Sounds like a grand as the book value is closer to what you offered. Depends on a lot I have a 2016 Kodiak 700 utility quad with about 400 hrs. Has a aftermarket hour meter, wench, aluminum wheels, itt mudlite xl, a heavy duty trailer hitch. I would not sell it for less than $6500 to $7000. Condition is everything. ATVs are in short supply so the price should be higher than the dealer really wants you cant even buy a 2008 for that kind of money used bikes 10 years old are selling for that kind of money.

Inventory is so low for all dealers at this point that there is very little incentive to give you a great deal. Friend of mine just purchased a Kawasaki mule SXS no Wolverine or Kubota in stock. Had to buy a model for 4K more than she had planned just to get a properly set up ride.

Understood. I was responding to the recent comments. The original post may be old however the issues of product availability and pricing are more relevant now than any time I can recall.

I couldn't find anything in ET last winter. Drove out of state to see a couple, but they tried to rob me. I just lucked out and a used one popped up locally. A new Kodiak 700 EPS SE Tactical finish with 35 miles and six hours on the clock. I bought it the same day and never looked back.
