    It was short lived run and they stopped making them for a reason.
    Polaris seems to over engineer these things without backing it up with build quality...in other words, it's a heavy tank that breaks a lot.
    The KTM RFS engine was great for a dirtbike that weighed 250lbs, not so strong and exciting in a 500lb machine with 2 extra wheels.

    I did read that Polaris discontinued a bunch of parts, and things like axles can be hard to find.

    I think saying it isnt so strong/exciting is a little... off? This thing is faster than 450 class quads as well as the raptor 700.

    Pretty much I am not into utility/mud quads, and sport/solid axle quads wont work in the terrain I live.

    IRS rear sport quad with a big motor seems.... perfect?

    $2,650, like new condition.

    I can promise you, a solid axle sport quad will do just as good, if not better on any given terrain if you ride it like it should be ridden. If it's a 2wd vs 4wd, the terrain statement may hold some value.
    Engine size also isnt a huge factor, weight is. Having a YFZ450R and a Raptor 700R in my stable, the 450 is much much faster than the raptor 700.
    I also had a 2006 KTM 525 dirtbike, while it was a torque monster, the power hit was not exciting.

    There's always the Honda trx 700, another very short lived run and try at IRS, but at least that one has typical Honda build quality and reliability.
