I want a new bike but want to go fast and still be able to climb hills. I was thinking about spending 3800 or less. I would like to get something 96 or better. I was looking at banshee's, 400-300ex, and warriors, blasters. Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.
I just bought a 2001 400ex. It seems to do everything very well. I do lots of hill climbing and sand riding and it works good for that type of stuff. I paid $3850 for it and it had about $750 worth of extra's on it. I haven't ridden anything else much to compare with it - but it seems to be an excellent machine so far!
faster than a blaster, slower than a banshee, you could probably find a banshee for about 3500 if you looked hard, it depends on if you want to constintly be on a rocket, or would like to take it slow and put around a little bit, if you're gonna wanna be taking it slow some of the time the ex would be nice, if your out for a thrill ride everytime you ride the banshee would be the obvious choice...
I would go with a 400ex. The new ones are just $5699 and a used one a 99 i saw for 3900. It you go faster than a blaster you might be able to keep up with a banshee with alot of aftermarket things and some work.
dude get a banshee...if you want intense power and never want to go slow it is the way to go...its powerband and roost factor are incredible!! but if you are more into slower non wide open riding a 4 stroke machine might be better..but why would you want to do that?
