When my friends and I all decided to get new ATV's, I did a lot of shopping around. Honestly, what attracted me to the Brute Force was the price.
I paid a lot less for this than my friend did for his Grizzly 700 or my cousin did for his Can Am 650. But after three years of riding together I can say confidently that my Brute Force 650i is the best if the three in almost all areas.
The performance is amazing, and unlike the other two, it never overheats, even when being pushed hard in deep snow or mud. My only complaints are the lack of internal storage and the stock tires. I put on a set of 26" ITP 589 tires, because the stock tires weren't always up to the task.
Upgrades/Accessories: 26" ITP 589 tires with ITP SS rims, 2,500 lb. Mile Marker winch, Plano rear rack storage box.
