Hi, all. My name is Pete and I’m new to ATV world. Two weeks ago I spent the entire weekend on a Suzuki quad up in Maine, and had a blast. Now, I am looking to pick up a 750 king quad. The size seems to be the right one for me as I will be accompanied by my girlfriend most of the time. I hear the king quad is overall the best choice for the money. I am looking to learning a ton from you guys.

I also ride on the streets. My current choice has been Yamaha R1 since 2011. Thanks

Welcome. You can’t go wrong with a King Quad 750. Awesome machine. I have a 2020 and my son has a 2009. We love them and wouldn’t own anything else.

Are you looking to buy new, or used?
You may want to take a test drive and a hard look at both machines . The Grizzly isn't a bad machine. I have friends that own them. It just isn't a King Quad, lol.

Sometimes it comes down to what feels better. I own a KQ because of the features, benefits, comfort, reliability/dependability/brand reputation, performance , style, and lastly price.

I just got back from two days of riding. One day was 110 miles. If I was sore, beat up and achy, saving a few hundred bucks over the course of several years riding long miles wouldn't help.

I bought my 2020 KQ in the height of the pandemic. Nothing was available locally that I was interested in. I drove from Long Island NY to NH to buy it. That tells you something !

Thanks for taking the time to write this up.
I had the chance to test drive the KQ and was a blast. The Yama is just the thought I have had for since I’ve loved all my R1s and currently owe the 2016 model year that has been a joy to ride each time I get on it.

I would like it slightly used to save some $$$. I have time to source one as the winter is slowly creeping up in New England.
Once I find it, I will be sure to share it with you all.

I already have saved up a numerous accessory items for both quads in my eBay app lol

I get the concept of brand loyalty with your R1. Back in the day my answer to that was simple. Chevy makes two Vettes. One is a Corvette and the other is a Chevette. I loose the concept of the brand loyalty on the Chevette.

There is a good dealer up in NH. Called Full Throttle Powersports. I believe they are in Swanzey NH. Their prices are awesome. It was like buying new , at used prices.

They are close enough for you to check out.

I will check them out.
I believe one of the dealer up in NH had a special for 5,9K plus dealer fees about a month ago. I missed the deal then as I was not looking for a quad to buy. Now, they have some units in stock but with higher price tag as the Suzuki pulled the rebates. I will continue looking for a new/used KQ.
Thanks
