    By Zachary (I am an Owner) on Mar 25, 2013

    I have had my brute for 3 months now and it has 120 miles on it. Still waiting to do the break in service (scheduled for 100mi). But for those 120 miles it has been the best atv ever. From the moment I first started it the machine has always put a smile on my face even if I drove it for less than ...

    Pros:

    1. Size of machine

    2. Ease of use

    3. Reliability

    4. Fuel Range

    5. Display

    6. Build quality

    7. Head Lights

    8. Tail Lights

    9. Tires

    10. Look of Machine

    11. Comfortable

    12. Engine

    13. If I had to list all the pro's I would be here for a while. Heres just a couple.

    Cons:

    1. None besides the little screen issue.
