$5200.00 is a very good price.Here in Michigan I paid $5495.00.Mine has 130 miles on it and the fastest it will go is 55 mph.I'm 210 lbs. and no modifications.I'm very pleased with it so far,lots of pulling power.I haven't been on a long trail ride yet to see how the gas mileage is but my friend's 2003 Rubicon goes about 65 miles and he then has to turn on the reserve.I'm thinking the 500 Foreman will be about the same.All depends on how you're on the throttle.

You'll love the new Foreman. I've had mine a year and still love it. I do a good bit of trail riding as well as mudding and have gone 4+ hours solid on a tank. Basically, I burn half a tank (no engine mods) to my buddies 450 (w/mods) full tank.

comparison between the 450s and the 500s foreman

Hi just trying to get some imput . my question is which quad is better the 450s or the 500s , i know the 450s is a beast and bullet proof , but how about the foreman 500s ? I just sold my 03 4x4 rancher which had 2inches of lift and 27 inch super swamper vampires with a warn 424 selector switch . I gave that machine pure **** and had not one bit of problems !! check out my site which is half way done to see what i have put my rancher thru , the site is ( atvtruckmuddin.50megs.com ) check it out and post what you think , in the meanwhile please give me some opinions about the difference between the 2 quads .. im 1500 away from the purchase of a new 500s foreman 4x4 . cant wait or should i go old school 450s ????? later !!!!!!

well I went from a 450s to a 500s. I love the 500, it rides like a caddy compared to the 450, looks better, and is a lot more comfortable, with more power for sure. But, im not totally convinced on the durabilty yet. I think the 500 has a few cheaper parts in it compared to the 450, especially in the trans. You dont hear of 450's breaking the trans, but it has been known to happen in the 500's. But so far I do enjoy the 500!
