Has anybody purchased one of these yet? I looked at one about 3 weeks ago and decided I just had to have one, the new color is eye popping. They want $10,200 for the machine, I am having a hard time deciding if I should actually go for it or get a 2017 blue one for $9250.

Seems the 2018 Grizz SE has same (or similar) matte silver body color but with electric blue vs yellow accent decals as the new 2017 SE I bought prox 7 wks ago? I do like the newer (mostly) black wheels a bit better but not enough to miss out on deeper discounts plus Yamaha promo of extended YES or Yamaha/Warn winch (I chose the latter). BTW, I paid $8,399 for the Grizz plus "reasonable" freight and prep fees for total OTD price that was appealing. My buddy used that total price as leverage to purchase an identical Grizz at another dealer with one in stock quite a distance from our location (prox 100 mile SW for me and prox 100 miles east for him).

We're happy as pigs in mud (however, I hate mud otherwise)...

Do the 18's backfire like the 17's were reported to do? That would break my heart after spending all that money

Those rims and tires aren't stock, which could have raised the price a bit. I have a 2016 SE and it only backfired when I had an aftermarket exhaust tip on it, drove me nuts so I removed it the same day I put it on...

That's a beauty. If you can afford it, do it. We don't have much time on this earth, might as well try to enjoy it if you can!

You are correct, these rims were put on for display only and they want $1400 for the complete set, which is nuts. There isn't a lot of deals to be made on new ATV's here with all the agriculture and oil activity, so the $9900 OTD is it on this particular model. I'm not in a rush so I just ordered one, it sounds like it will be in before Thanksgiving so that will work out great for me.

Speaking of the backfire, if it does it does, these things are bulletproof from what I have seen them put through, and a little backfire won't bother me in the least. I know a guy that literally runs the dog snot out of his Grizzly and it never fails. They are tough.

I loved the '16 SE metallic grey so much I searched and search for one even though the '17 was out on showroom floors. Winded up going 300 miles out of my to get it. They had ITP Hirricaine wheels and Mudlights on it when I got there and couldn't find the stock wheels and tires. I drove another 100 miles to get the same model, then ordered the same tire and wheel package I saw on the other that I started to like so much.
My point is get what you really want and have your mind set on, so you yourself will be happy, even if it cost a little more. You will not be happy thinking back on one you wish you would of gotten. Just get what you really want, no regrets later.

This is so true. I've learned to get what a want without trying to pinch pennies assuming I can actually afford it. IF I can't afford what I want, I either don't buy it, or wait till I can and buy it. That $500-1000 may seam like a lot, but when you look at how often you use it or the $$/hrs used, it's really not much at all in comparison to other purchases.

Right on! I work with guys so damn tight they won't spend a penny, and they are going to retire with a buttload of money. I am willing to bet that in retirement they still won't spend any money. They don't have a clue how to have fun, and knowing them they never really will.

Go for it...if you think about it, it really isn't that much more for what you are getting.

Absolutely, positively, no regrets! This thing is awesome. I brought it home 2 weeks ago and it has sat in my garage with 0 miles on the odometer, and until today I just couldn't find the time to try it out. I put 35 miles on it today and I smiled the whole time! I had the wheels and tires from the 2010 Grizzly that I sold and I put them on, I think it looks great.
