Rincon vs Grizzly 700
During an ATV safety course today there was a Rincon and Grizzly 700 side by side and gave me an opportunity to compare the two machines.
Here are the things that I notice:
The Grizzly sits way higher. I thought it had a lift kit but it was stock. Rincon looked like a low rider next to it.
The Rincon handled much better in turns and was very stable while the grizzly seemed tippy.
The rincon had a visibly smoother ride over bumps.
The rincon is actually a little wider than the grizzly, another reason it was more stable.
The hight of the seat, from the foot pegs is much higher on the grizzly. They may provide a slightly more comfortable ride but it makes it harder to shift your weight on the seat.
The power steering also seemed the rider to overcorrect in steering . This may be due to lack of experience but it did not look like it to me.
Being that I am more of a trail rider this makes me even happier that I chose the rincon (not that I ever thought about the grizzly).
the rincon owner also informed me that the times they had went riding together he had to keep pulling the grizzly out.
Just thought I would share this with you all.
