Just a bad market right now. If you can buy it's the time but most people don't have the money to buy a toy which is why the prices are lower.

This quad should have been released in 2006 and there would have been a lot more people able to buy it.

I don't think its the market.....although the market has had an affect on all quad sales, there are others selling still, and at MSRP. I think it is because what most people wanted was for honda to come out with a big bore SRA quad, not an IRS, and all this talk of honda possibly discontinuing the XX also has an affect on sales as well. Just my .02.

I 100% agree. Every time someone comes up to look at my XX they say I really was thinking about getting one until I found out it has an IRS.

People in general arent sold yet on IRS on a sport quad. Theres alot of TRX owners that was looking forward to the 700 until they found out about the IRS. The economy didnt help either.

uneducated opinions is why, i let everyone ride my bike for a minute or two, everybody likes how smooth it is on the trails, it allows me to lead the pack most of the time because of the confidence i have, when other see the whoops or some potholes they grab the brake and i grab more throttle.the guys i ride with nicknamed mine "the caddillac".

and i dont eve have to talk about all of the rutted trails that they get stuck in due to small tires on a sra bike

I'm surprised it was ever made to be honest - Honda seriously overconsidered the market this bike had. It's the strangest bunch of design ideas in one bike possible, I reckon - it just happen to work out really well of us! :P

It doesn't have the abilities (towing/racks/4x4) of a big bike, so guys looking for looking for quick fun ute's buy Brute Forces and Outlanders/Renegades.

A guy looking to step up from a pure sport bike can't just jump on a XX and ride it like he stole it because of the IRS, so they are still buying Raptors.

The 700xx is great at a few things - Woods and Baja... but most woods riders want smaller bikes (300/400/450s) and there aren't too many of us that have a place to Baja!

To make it worse, the idiosyncrasies of our bikes turn a lot of guys off. (11'' rims? 500lbs? IRS + chain? crazy styling?)

We may love this bike, but it can't be a money maker for Honda.

I would be very surprised if they continued production on it for much longer... sad fact but they just don't sell!
