As is my custom, this post will be lenghty
I'm looking to potentially get a new/1 year old sled, which I have never shopped for.
70% ride trails with my 5yo / 30% ride solo on trails and a bit of backcountry.
My entire youth was riding little 250cc Bravo's and an old 340 TNT. I currently have a 1996 mxz 583. Power and comfort wise, its more than enough. As such, not looking into higher end models. I don't need a ton of features, super fancy adjustable suspension or oodles of power. My wee lad has been having a BLAST with this so looking for something more reliable that we can enjoy together for a few years, until I potentially get him his own little 250 when he is about 9 or 10.
I'm looking at the new models and the Backcountry/Renegade and MXZ are the most appealing to me. Either or would be the base model. I feel that for the type of riding I do and with whom, these are the best fits.
I have two questions:
1) The MSRP on the BRP site for the models above are:
Given they are all around the same price, what can one expect to see on a dealer sticker price? As an extension to that question .. assuming I will finance with some money down and a trade in (the MXZ), what can one look for in terms of discounts/rebates?
2) I live in Hawkesbury, Ontario. The shop in town is pretty good (though, my interactions have been minimal). Can you folks recommend a good dealer they have dealt with/had good experiences with in, say, a 250km radius of Hawkesbury. As well, any places in that same radius of places to avoid?
I know, lots to unpack here but I appreciate any advice/thoughts/suggestions that any of you may have
Thanks a bunch in advance.
