    Default Questions buying a New ATV

    When you buy a new ATV is there room for negotiating a few hundred off or maybe a free winch.

    I have been looking at used but there is almost nothing for sale or they want close to new anyways.

    I'm seeing 20 year old Honda and Yamaha asking 4000and a new one is 10 grand taxes in. I have 5000 on hand so might as well buy new.

    The way the market is right now, I don't think you're going to get any freebies buying new, but you never know. A lot are already pre sold before they make it to the dealer, so there's no real incentive for them to give away items. Mines 11 years old and if I wanted to sell it, I would probably get 3/4 of new price with no effort.

    If you think buying ATV's are rough,try boats. I can't even get dealers to return my calls or emails for pricing new boats.
    If you're too big to do the little things that count,you're too little to do the big things that really count.

    Excuse me for being insensitive but I thought everyone is supposedly broke because of Covid. You can't buy anything used. I can sell my current ATV for a grand more then I paid maybe even more, I can't find a chainsaw I want, even was thinking of selling my truck and spending tossing in another 10K turns out my truck might is still worth what I paid and nothing is for sale everything is selling so fast..

    I'm going to start calling a few dealers I think this week to see what new is going to cost me. I don't need frills and I will install the winch myself.

    The Kodiak with out the locker is 10K taxes in the Honda Rancher slightly less. Would be nice to have the Kodiak with the locker but it only comes with the EP model for 12K.

    I don't think I need a locker we rarely go mudding as to much work to clean them.

    In stock items might offer a bit of wiggle room, not much though. Anything big bore, forget about it.

    My brother is six months in waiting on his new SxS.

    You mention things being sold out. Bought a new truck in September, wife's buggy is FUBAR, she thought she would take this truck and I was to get another new one as the 2021 has me curious. Made a call to the dealer, I'd be lucky to get one by Christmas as he's sold everything he can order for the year.....

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    I was in talking to the local Yamaha dealer a couple of weeks ago and mentioned to him how tough the Covid must be on sales. Since last March they've had record sales. No one travelling, spending money on toys so they can have fun at home. He can't keep inventory so unfortunately I think you'll pay top dollar without many freebies. Boats, vehicles, trailers, houses everything is going through the roof.

    You're always better off going with a straight deal then buying a winch separately when they're on sale. And they come on sale often. Question is, do you really need a winch in the first place and I'm sure its an accessory that can wait til you can get a better deal.
    Too, have you looked in the States for an ATV? Usually good deals there but now you have to consider exchange being significant.

    Might be able to get a deal if you can find some left over models from previous year. Brother bought a new kingquad last fall and could have saved 2 grand getting a leftover model. He didn't like the color so he got the more expensive one with the only difference being power steering. Also saved another $200 off each machine as he took a buddy in who ended up buying the other one. My kingquad is 14 years old and was thinking of getting a new one but it runs great and only ever had to replace the battery in it. So I put new tires and rims on a couple months ago and in the spring I'm replacing a wheel bearing and belt and hopefully it'll go another 10 years. It will likely outlast me.

    Covid financial losers are few and far between - but those that get screwed over get it very bad.
    Most people are coming out ahead particularly those who have investments or own houses.
    As far as buying toys - or dogs - now is a very bad bad bad time.
    Lots of people with time and cash on their hands. And the 'used' stuff gets snapped up before the new.

    Unfortunately there a lot of people who are a bit 'dim' when it comes to money. Covid was a opportunity to many defer mortgage payments and loans. Wo Ho...money in the bank at the end of the month..

    Throw in the generous CERB and other "emergency benefits" from the government and all of a sudden your wallet is flush...time to shop.

    Kids alone who lost their $450 a month part time jobs were sent $2K a month to soften the blow. That'll stimulate the economy !!!
