Best four stroke quad out there. I had a Raptor 700 before but I sold it and upgraded to my KTM. Unreal!!! Great handling and never have problems with mine. Tons of power. Overall my favorite quad Ive owned
The BEST EVERBy Nick (I am an Owner) on Jan 03, 2019
So I bought mine from a guy in California who never rode the thing. Came to me with a ton of ktm OEM upgrades. Looked brand-new. Anyways...best decision I ever made. Has ran strong for over 100 hrs and still looks like new. The oil comes out same color as it went in. Only downfall is the electrical ... system has caused me minor issues here n there....but mechanically it's like a Swiss watch. Such a shame the economy had to tank and kill these amazing machines.

KTM is by far the best stock bike I have ever ridden. The suspension is unbelievable, and the power is unreal! I have beaten many bikes that have over 10 grand of after market stuff done to it!! They perform great racing and they perform just as well going doing tree shots (the low end power on this ... bike is like nothing i've ever ridden!).The only downfall of this bike is that sometimes it backfires, if it backfires severly take it back to the dealer within 30 day and they with adjust the air screw and sometimes reseal the exhaust. Before I took it back i tried just putting a different jet in and that didnt fix the backfiring. The backfiring is not that big of a deal if its on the deacceleration i havent seen a bike that hasnt done that when its just off the floor, its very common and most all bikes need to be rejetted, I would suggest to just get a FULL jet kit. Never pay full price, I bought mine brand new and only paid $7500. I love IT!

I just picked up my KTM ATV this weekend (Feb 13th) and I am stoked. I keep it in Maine where most of my fun time is spent. Well, even though there was still plenty of snow on the ground, I found many place to dig a hole and climb out with not problems. Overall suspension plushness was stable at ... high speed while very complient up on the rocks and logs. I put some chains on just to try them since my studded tires were on another KTM I own and they drive system work perfectly. Engine noise was very low on this model compard my other Yamaha and Polaris models and the mpg was very close to my big Yamaha. The quality is excellent, shock selection on par with such a big frame, seat was very cuushy, and the I especially like the sweep on the bars that were spec'd.
Overall I'd give it 9.2 out of 10.
Parts are high quality and design is fresh.
I'll be enjoying this one for the few years.
