For you that are going to sell your Rzr, are you doing it now, before the proverbial "flooding of the market" or are you hanging on to them till after you see what this new machine is bringing?

Might as well sell, it's the way of the future. Two years from now, it'll be old school

sold my nine a month ago :( It took me 2-3 months to sell but when the buyer showed up with a trailer and lots of cash I knew it was time to let her go! I can't wait to get my new YXZ!

Sold mine.
The guy paid cash and I'm not looking back.

The Rzr Turbo though improved is disappointing, the high price and it's stripped down condition is ridiculous. We got our deposit back.
The comparable equipped XYZ, (YXZ) will be $5K to $7K cheaper when the dust settles and we have the options installed we want. We have 8% sales tax out here and the Rzr dealers hit you with a $1000 ($600 / $400) freight and set up charge too.
And my take is before the $2000 premium most Polaris dealers are asking.
I'm not getting any of this non sense with the Yamaha.

Plus the Yamaha has full doors, a roof and respectable lighting right off the showroom standard.

The Rzr Turbo will have a terrible resale value IMHO.
If anything those customers will take a bigger bath when they sell them.
They are too expensive to begin with and the Rzr Turbo and it's options are a big price out as far as I'm concerned.

If the wife wants an automatic and their is a big rebate going and the dealer will discount them further,, we'll consider a Rzr turbo for her and my girls.
But for now,, the Rzr turbo just too damn much money and they arrogantly feel they will get it.
It stings already paying $21K for the XYZ (YXZ).

Jus' my rant.
Makes me feel better to convince myself of this.

My Rzr S never once had a full day of riding.
Spent most the season in the shop or on the back of the trailer.

The XP 1000 OK but the shocks gave a lousy ride, should have had more power and correcting the shocks would be $4500.

Nahh, no regrets, buying the XYZ (YXZ) cold turkey and have great expectations.

I have a feeling just juice it's computer and un-plug it and it'll be a screamer.

Id like to add when I've sold my Rzrs before I got criticized in the Sand forums for the lower asking price.
Then, 2 months later all the critics are selling theirs for even less and getting no takers.

Now is the time to let it go.

My xp9 went bye bye a couple months ago, I knew I didn't want another Polaris product, was looking at the Maverick, but the Yamaha hype was getting bigger and bigger, so glad I waited, deposits on a yellow one, should be here mid October.

I couldn't agree with you more as far as the RZR Turbo being too expensive right out of the gate and minimum I would still have to buy a roof and doors!!! C'mon Polaris! I'm not in love with the YXZ, I had a great 3 years with my XP900, but the price for the Turbo is the big reason I'm going with the YXZ. However the more I read about the YXZ the more excited i am about owning one!

I happily got rid of my Polaris stuff years ago as I was irritated with dealer networking and time to repair my constantly broken RZR. Ive been happy enough with my Arctic Cat and Can Am (both now sold) but neither have really excited me as I've always wanted a stick. It appears I've been waiting for the Yami.
In the meantime, I'll play with the motorcycles and cars.

Ok, I know this is a Yamaha forum and I am exited about this new YXZ, but come on. I just don't see everyone dumping their RZRs & Mav's for pennies on the dollar, just because there is now a really cool 5 speed in town. I for one, absolutely love my RZR 900-s. Bought it new and plan to ride it, and enjoy it for years to come. If I had the money, I would own both. I'm so jealous of the guys that post they are doing just that.
So to answer the question, my RZR won't be going up for sale now. But I will continue to look at how this cool new YXZ shakes out, once people actually start riding them for a while.

I doubt anyone will sell for pennys on the dollar.
I got $17.500 for my XP1000 in anticipation of buying the Rzr Turbo.
Then the Turbo rolls in with less performance than the Maverick and a whopping price plus premiums all the after stuff I have to buy.
NO,, the Rzrs do hold their value for now, but the Rzr turbo owners may take a bath at resale time I fear.
If the Yamaha line sales catch fire, Rzrs resale value will suffer.

We sold ours about a month ago. Took only two days and I'm very happy. We got 18K for it plus another $800 in selling takeoffs.

What areas of the country do you think bring the most $$$ for used xp1k's? i will be on the eastern side of the country this fall and out west az/ca in the winter. I'm thinking west coat will bring the best price then return to Tn to get the new one.

These SxS depreciate like crazy. I always love reading the craigslist ads with "$___ invested" .. dude, it's not an investment, and if you thought it was, lol, good luck to you.. maybe that BS worked on your wife, but it's not any type of investment.
